Valor Hospitality expands UK management portfolio

ATLANTA, GA – Valor Hospitality Partners, a full-service global hotel acquisition, development, administration and asset management firm, announced today that it has been appointed to manage the Courtyard by Marriott Edinburgh Hotel, the international hotel management company’s first hotel in the city .

The appointment follows a period of significant growth for Valor, which more than doubled its UK portfolio in 2021 after bringing 17 IHG hotels under its management. Valor has recently further strengthened its portfolio with the addition of two new luxury properties under development in the world renowned golf resorts of St Andrews, Scotland and Dunluce, Northern Ireland.

The Courtyard by Marriott Edinburgh is a 240-bed, 4-star hotel in the heart of the Scottish capital, blending heritage and style with innovative design and locally inspired furnishings. It is the first Courtyard-branded hotel in the Valor portfolio and also the newest Marriott brand to operate since the successful launch of the first-ever two AC by Marriott hotels in the UK in 2016.

Brian McCarthy, Managing Director for UK and Europe at Valor Hospitality, said: “We continue to grow here in the UK, with nearly forty hotels now operating under our management, and we are delighted to have this opportunity to expand into Edinburgh. We aspire to continue to grow and fully develop our business, built on creating exceptional levels of employee engagement, delivering commercial excellence and maximizing returns for the partners who choose us and trust us work on their behalf.”

Euan McGlashan, Global Co-Founder and CEO of Valor Hospitality adds: “Personally being from Edinburgh, the city holds a special place in my heart. This, in addition to our partnership with acclaimed chef Roy Brett and his Ondine Restaurant, means we are bringing our very own brand of hospitality to this incredible city.”

The addition of the Courtyard by Marriott Edinburgh brings Valor Hospitality to 85 properties managed worldwide including IHG, Marriott, Hilton and independent luxury brands.
