Spanish hotel group Meliá Hotels International has announced that it is to open two properties in Birmingham and Glasgow under its contemporary city centre brand Innside by Meliá.
The 180-bedroom Innside Birmingham and 175-bedroom Innside Glasgow will join the UK's first Innside by Meliá hotel, the 208-bedroom Innside Manchester, which is set to open in May this year.
The company has 378 hotels open or under development in 41 countries across seven brands. Most of the hotels in its pipeline are located outside of Spain.
The growth of Innside by MeliÁ¡, from eight hotels in 2008 to 36 new hotels open or in the process of being opened today has been driven by the brand's strong focus on profitability and value for money.
