G Adventures ACQUIRES FIRST HOTEL

21 Jun 2009

G Adventures embarks on an adventure of its own. The tour operator has just acquired the first of its new hotel brand, the G Hotels, in Quito, Ecuador.

Designated as a historical heritage site by the city of Quito, the 24-room hotel will undergo refurbishment before officially opening in July. Renovations include an overall facelift and the addition of a meeting room for G Adventures tour briefings.

“This is an exciting step for G Adventures. G Hotels will be in locations where we tour most regularly and will add to the unique experience our passengers have come to expect from us.” Says Bruce Poon Tip, CEO of G Adventures.

The Quito property is the first of four hotels G Adventures plans on acquiring in the coming year. Subsequent properties are schedule to open between now and 2010 in Lima and Cusco in Peru, as well as in Costa Rica.
