HOTEL BRANDMANIA Harrods Getting Into Hotels
So you have the shopping bag or perhaps the umbrella, but now you will be able to actually stay in a Harrods hotel.
A giant media buzz is on after the Qatar sovereign wealth fund has announced plans for a mixed-use branded hotel, retail and residential project in Kuala Lumpur.
The group has further said it intends to open Harrods hotels in New York, Paris and is targeting expansion into China.
Plans are underway for setting up a hospitality arm for the group.
It's unclear what the hotel brnad DNA will be, but for certain it will include retail.
