French group to open two hotels in Iran

French group AccorHotels announced Monday it will become the first international hotel group to operate in Iran as the Islamic Republic opens up to the West following the deal on its nuclear program. AccorHotels will open an Ibis hotel and a Novotel branch near Tehran’s international airport. The hotel contracts will be signed on Tuesday by AccorHotels’ chief executive Sebastien Bazin with representatives of Iranian company Aria Ziggurat, which owns the buildings. The hotels are scheduled to open for business on October 15, with a total of nearly 500 rooms.
