Former Vincci Granada Reopens as Leonardo Hotel Granada Following Acquisition and Conversion

BERLIN, DE./GRANADA, ES. July 17, 2017 - With the purchase of the Vincci Granada and its reopening as Leonardo Hotel Granada, the hotel group now has its first location in the popular Spanish tourist region of Andalusia. This brings up a total of six hotels belonging to the Leonardo Hotels in Spain.

Granada is especially popular with tourists because of its many historical sites and monuments and it is also an important industrial center. The takeover represents yet another step in the Leonardo Hotel's European expansion that reinforces its presence in the Spanish market.

The location in the heart of the city, close to the main railway station, makes the 4-star hotel extremely attractive: Tourist sites such as the Alhambra or the Albayzin Moorish Quarter are easily accessible from the hotel. Most of the 176 rooms also have a fabulous view of the Sierra Nevada. Beside the restaurant the hotel has two conference rooms with space for up to 100 people.

Daniel Roger, Managing Director Leonardo Hotels Europe: "Part of our company strategy is to open hotels in Spain's dynamic hotspots. So we are delighted now, after Barcelona and Madrid, to include Granada in our portfolio."

Hogan Lovells acted as legal advisor of Leonardo Group in the acquisition process.

Eco-Friendly Practices: The Greening of Your Bottom Line

There are strong moral and ethical reasons why a hotel should incorporate eco-friendly practices into their business but it is also becoming abundantly clear that “going green” can dramatically improve a hotel's bottom line. When energy-saving measures are introduced - fluorescent bulbs, ceiling fans, linen cards, lights out cards, motion sensors for all public spaces, and energy management systems - energy bills are substantially reduced. When water-saving equipment is introduced - low-flow showerheads, low-flow toilets, waterless urinals, and serving water only on request in restaurants - water bills are also considerably reduced. Waste hauling is another major expense which can be lowered through recycling efforts and by avoiding wastefully-packaged products. Vendors can be asked to deliver products in minimal wrapping, and to deliver products one day, and pick up the packaging materials the next day - generating substantial savings. In addition, renewable sources of energy (solar, geothermal, wind, etc.) have substantially improved the economics of using alternative energies at the property level. There are other compelling reasons to initiate sustainability practices in their operation. Being green means guests and staff are healthier, which can lead to an increase in staff retention, as well as increased business from health conscious guests. Also, sooner or later, all properties will be sold, and green hotels will command a higher price due to its energy efficiencies. Finally, some hotels qualify for tax credits, subsidies and rebates from local, regional and federal governments for the eco-friendly investments they've made in their hotels. The May issue of the Hotel Business Review will document how some hotels are integrating sustainable practices into their operations and how their hotels are benefiting from them.
