Deutsche Hospitality Partners With Brendal Hotel Group to Expand MAXX by Steigenberger Brand

Germany, Frankfurt. October 03, 2019

Everything is pointing to further growth. Deutsche Hospitality is planning to expand the portfolio of its up-and-coming MAXX by Steigenberger brand by up to twelve hotels before the end of 2022. This will be achieved by entering into a cooperation agreement with the family-owned Brendal Hotel Group. MAXX by Steigenberger is a fresh and charismatic concept which places the focus on the essential. It combines the renowned Steigenberger level of quality with a sense of urban comfort.

"We are delighted to cooperate with the Brendal Hotel Group as our franchise partner," said Thomas Willms, CEO, Deutsche Hospitality. "This is a company which offers all the prerequisites to drive forward the successful expansion of our new MAXX by Steigenberger brand. The planned hotels to be delivered by the Brendal Hotel Group will be the perfect vehicle in terms of rolling out MAXX by Steigenberger and achieving a clear market positioning in the German speaking countries. This will enable us to enhance our presence at attractive locations and to offer our guests an even greater selection."

Axel Jünke, Managing Director of the Brendal Hotel Group, added: "Brendal represents sustainable and at the same time modern hotel concepts that offer great value for money and huge potential for further development. MAXX by Steigenberger is the ideal franchise partner for us as we seek to realise the owners' vision of growth accompanied by the very highest standards of service."

Up to now, the Brendal Hotel Group GmbH runs its hotels independently. Following a corporate restructuring and the drawing up of specific plans for expansion, the Brendal Hotel Group GmbH opted to pursue growth on the basis of a framework agreement with Deutsche Hospitality and via franchising arrangements with MAXX by Steigenberger.

Deutsche Hospitality moved into the economy segment in February 2019 when it acquired the Danish Zleep Hotels brand. It currently has more than 30 further hotel openings in the pipeline, the primary emphasis being on international locations.

Eco-Friendly Practices: Creative Innovation

Being eco-friendly is no longer a fad. It is an urgent planetary need and hotels are actively doing their part to reduce their carbon footprint by implementing sustainable, green practices. In addition to the goodwill derived from doing the right thing, hotels are also realizing the benefits to their business. A large percentage of Millennials expect hotels to be eco-friendly and will only patronize those properties that are proudly conforming. Consequently, more hotels are realizing that sustainability is a key element in a successful branding strategy. In addition, going green can lead to a more profitable bottom line, as savings on electricity, water and cleaning materials can add up. Also, there are other advantages that come with being an eco-friendly business, such as government subsidies and tax and loan incentives. As a result, many hotels are finding innovative ways to integrate eco-friendly practices into their business. Geo-thermal energy systems, along with energy-from-waste systems, are being used to heat and cool the property. Passive solar panels, green roofs, natural lighting and natural ventilation strategies also assist in energy conservation. Low-flow water systems and plumbing fixtures make a contribution, as does eco-friendly hardwood flooring, and energy efficient televisions and appliances throughout the property. In addition, some hotels have implemented in-room recycling programs, and only provide all-natural, personal care items. One hotel has actually constructed a bee-keeping operation on their grounds. Not only is this good for the bees but the hotel also produces products from the operation which they sell. This kind of creative innovation also holds enormous appeal to guests. The May issue of the Hotel Business Review will document what some hotels are doing to integrate sustainable practices into their operations and how they are benefiting from them.
