Accor’s hotel portfolio at the end of 2020:

Accor doesn’t break down luxury and upscale but rather lumps them together (red flag – looks better this way). Accor is very weak in the luxury segment.

52% of Accor’s hotels are in the economy segment (40% of the rooms) and another 31% (33% of the rooms) in the midscale.

Geographical Presence

The reason why Accor did so badly in 2020 is clearly when you look at where most of their hotel portfolio is – Europe 59% of the hotels and 46% of the rooms. Many markets still are closed and not allowing any non-essential travel.

The bright spot is Accor’s strength in Asia-Pacific that has weathered the Covid-19 much better than Europe and the Americas. 25% of Accor’s hotels are in the area representing 32% of the rooms.

Conclusion

I am sure that Accor will pull through, if not by itself, but with the French government’s help. France would not allow a company as significant as Accor to go under. 

Accor still has significant untapped credit lines, but they need to stop the bleeding by the end of 2021.
