Athens Locations Spark Hotel Chains’ Interest, Kathimerini Says

Radisson Blu Hotels & Resorts signed a franchise agreement to add a five-star hotel in Athens and Iberostar Hotels & Resorts is also interested in the Greek capital as a location, Kathimerini reported, without saying where it got the information.

Five-star hotels in Athens, including the Hilton, the Grande Bretagne, the Intercontinental and the Metropolitan, along with Aegean Airlines SA (AEGN), may submit a group bid to Hellenic Tourist Properties SA for the Faliro Olympic Sports Hall, with plans to turn it into a conference center, the newspaper said.
