Spain's NH Hotel Group has expanded its footprint in South America by completing its integration of the Colombian Hoteles Royal chain. Those hotels are now being operated under the NH Collection and NH Hotel brands. As a result, Colombia has the fifth-highest number of NH properties in the world, with 15 hotels among the country's main cities.

NH acquired Hoteles Royal earlier this year, which consisted of 20 properties in total and includes a presence in both Chile and Ecuador. The hotel company now operates 57 hotels across 10 countries in Latin America, totaling more than 10,000 rooms.
