The Hoxton has announced plans to add five more properties to its European portfolio, with hotels set to open in Barcelona, Berlin, Brussels, Shepherd’s Bush (London) and Vienna over the course of 2022 and 2023.
The openings follow the recent launch of The Hoxton’s 10th hotel in Rome, which debuted earlier this month. As part of the expansion, The Hoxton’s co-working brand, Working From_, will also premiere its first mainland Europe location, bringing a new offering to Brussels.
“It’s been an incredibly difficult time for everyone, especially those in hospitality, and for all of those who, like us, love to travel and discover new places. Community has never felt more important, and we look forward to sharing Hoxton with more people in some of our favourite cities in Europe,” says founder and CEO Sharan Pasricha. “Our exciting plans for the next few years reflect our optimism for the bounce-back of travel and commitment to the industry we love. We can’t wait to expand our portfolio and open our doors in these great cities, ready for when city breaks and international travel is back and thriving.”
