In January 2019, Ibis paved the way for a new kind of hospitality refocused on social interaction in order to satisfy the new expectations of customers. With a warm and personalized welcome and spaces that are entirely open to the outside world, ibis is developing its model and moving from a uniform and standardized approach to one that is more flexible and tailored.

Steven Taylor, Accor Chief Marketing Officer, said, “On January 31st, we unveiled a new customer experience which positions ibis as a social hub, opening up to the local community and connecting with travelers and locals alike. I am delighted with the opening of Ibis Tallinn Center, which also embodies our new mobile hospitality vision as exemplified by the new check-in system.”

Quique Dacosta opened Arros QD on Fitzrovia’s 64 Eastcastle Street on the 7th June 2019. His first restaurant in London and outside of his native Spain, the collaborative project showcases Quique’s unique style of cooking while highlighting his passion for rice as well as premium, local and seasonal ingredients.
