Dann Hotels, the business hotel chain in Colombia

Dann hotel chain born 45 years ago in Colombia with the opening of its first hotel, Dann Avenida 19 Hotel in the financial centre of Bogotá.  it was built with the objective of hosting many guests who came to the Colombian capital in 1968 because of the visit of Pope Pablo VI to the city.

Although at the beginning the project wast to build apartments in that land, they reconsidered it and took advantage of the religious demand. It was a wise choice. Now, 46 years after, Dann chain has eight hotels located in different cities of Colombia, and a hotel in Quito, Ecuador.

Most of them are business hotels in Bogotá.  This chain has specialized in this sector in order to become established in the Colombian hotel trade, which has experienced a strong growth in last years, despite the international crisis. In fact, nowadays Colombia has one of stablest hotel industries in South America.

This chain has clearly turned the business travellers into its main public and, in fact, this sector represents around 85% of the total guests. For this, its hotels are designed in order to meet the needs of this type of public, equipped with facilities or events celebrations, a wide range of services, good restaurants, spa, gym, among others.

Additionally, the company boasts two different business lines. On one side, the Dann hotels, with which it was born and started to expand, and on the other side, Dann Carlton Hotels, characterised by offering elegance and luxury to the guests.
