• Sol Melia confirms US move

Sol Melia has confirmed that it is to operate its first hotel in the US with the Melia Atlanta, a 502-room hotel formerly operated by Marriott as the Renaissance Atlanta Hotel Downtown.

The company will take over the hotel operations on 15 October, with a $35m (£23m) renovation to be completed by 2013. Gabriel Escarrer Jaume, the company’s co-vice president & CEO, said: "I believe venturing into this particular market will help with the development of numerous projects the Sol Melia chain wants to develop in the US within the next few years."
