Louvre Hotels is a Groupe du Louvre subsidiary run by Pierre-Frédéric Roulot. It was established in 1976 and joined the Starwood Capital Group investment fund in 2005.

Louvre Hotels joined forces with the Golden Tulip Hospitality Group in July 2009, when Starwood Capital took over the latter. That move ranks Louvre Hotels & Golden Tulip as the number 8 hotel group worldwide. It now counts more than 1,000 hotels ranging from 1 to 5 stars (7 brands) in 41 countries.

One of Europe’s most dynamic players
The strategic alliance Louvre Hotels/Golden Tulip by capitalizing on its extended geographical localization, its complete brand portfolio and its team expertise, is aiming to consolidate its presence in Europe and reach target territories such as Morocco, India, Brazil, the Middle East and China. The alliance establishments can be splitted into three categories: 26% fully-owned hotels (managed by Louvre Hotels), 27% hotels run under a management agreement (operated by Louvre Hotels within the framework of a hotel owner’s mandate) and 47% hotels run as a franchise (managed by the owner).
