Focus Hotels has been awarded the contract to convert and operate Cheshunt Marriott Hotel to join Delta Hotels by Marriott. This transformation, of one of the brands most popular hotels will commence later this month with a full refurbishment of the bedrooms, meeting rooms and public areas.

Focus Hotels will manage a multi-million-pound investment in this 140-bedroom hotel to offer elegantly appointed bedrooms, stylish public areas, well-appointed meeting and events facilities and a hotel gymnasium.

Focus is due to start the refurbishment in February with reopening scheduled for late Spring 2022.

Lynn Hood, Chief Operating Officer for Focus Hotels, added:
“We are delighted to welcome Delta Hotels by Marriott to our portfolio of hotels along-side our Hilton and Mercure estate and independent hotels portfolio.

We look forward to being ready to welcome the corporate market as it re-emerges and gets back to work to this newly refurbished Delta by Marriott hotel.”

With easy access to the M25 and rail links to London the hotel is in the perfect position to further increase the profile of Focus Hotels and put it firmly on the map as a leading multi-brand management company in the UK.

Peter Cashman, Chief Executive Officer of Focus Hotels, said:
“We view winning this contract as a strong vote of confidence in Focus Hotel Management and our commitment towards creating owner value and a sustainable business platform.

This is a significant step in our post-pandemic plans for future growth and expansion.

More than 90% of businesses managed by Focus made a good operating profit in 2020 followed by continued growth in RGI results throughout 2021.

Average group-wide RGI for the second half of 2021 exceeded 2019 pre-pandemic results at 115 which has given us the firm foundations from which to move forward and grow further.

Every new brand we are able to work with brings the opportunity to provide us with greater diversity and additional insights which can all contribute towards our ambitions to expand even further.”
