While the hospitality sector was one of the most hit during the pandemic, it has also been among the fastest to rebound on the African continent.

According to a recent W Hospitality survey, hotel chains signed 447 transactions in 2021, and the number of rooms (80,291 rooms) added to their development pipeline is nearly the same to 2019

Marriott Hotel & Resorts, Hilton, and Radisson Blu are the most active hotel brands in terms of on-site construction.

According to the report, the on-site construction period is often beneficial to hotel chains and many others involved – a new hotel implies more jobs, tax money for the government, increased economic activity in the value chain, more advertising spending for the location, and so on.
