National and Regional Hotel Market potential

The second most important tourist destination in the world in terms of attendance, France has about 18,000 ranked hotels with 650,000 beds of which 950 hotels are in the 4 and 5 star luxury categories.

Paris is the prime destination in France, but the French Riviera comes a close second place with its coastal area, outstanding by virtue of its size and diversity.

The region alone accounts for about 2,000 hotels with 68,000 beds or 11 % of the national inventory. There is a greater density than the national average in the luxury category - 235 units including 85 five Star hotels or 32% of all five star hotels in France in 2013.

Carlton International estimates that 15% of the inventory is officially available for purchase for reasons ranging from retirement, to the end of the amortization of the business financing by owners who wish to invest in a larger facility or acquire the freehold asset. This implies the potential availability of 300 hotels in the “Provence” region, not counting tourism residences and other accommodation currently being developed as a hotel for sale, which includes properties such as guest houses and residential suites which compete with traditional hospitality structures.
