The Splendid Hospitality Group is now one of the leading hotel chains in the U.K. after Chair Shiraz Boghani led the brand on a major period of development across the last two decades. Many consumers may not know they are staying in a Splendid Hospitality Group hotel as the brand uses the recognized names of some of the world’s leading hotel chains to ensure a certain level of name recognition is always found among clients staying with the group; among the well-known hotel brands who have formed links with Shiraz Boghani’s company are Hilton, Conrad, and many more of the world’s best known brands.
In 2016, Shiraz Boghani was awarded the Asian Business Awards Hotelier of the Year award for his services to the industry across a number of years. The Splendid Hospitality Group’s Chief Executive, Stuart Bailey was quick to praise the Chair of his company with his work across two decades described as providing the driving force for the company as it began an impressive expansion. Shiraz Boghani was at the heart of the decision of the Splendid Hospitality Group to begin a move towards developing limited service hotels across the capital of the U.K. as far back as 1995 when this move was still seen as a major risk for an established chain of hotels.
By 2018, the Splendid Hospitality Group operates a chain of branded hotels across the U.K. which has included a decision to begin a series of luxury hotel developments including the five-star Grand Hotel and Spa in York. One of the most exciting aspects of the growth of the Splendid Hospitality Group under the leadership of Shiraz Boghani is the $121 million Hilton London Bankside Hotel which will become the flagship of the brand. For Shiraz Boghani, the need to continue the development of the Splendid Hospitality Group remains strong and will see the brand look to add to its 19 hotel locations across the U.K. in the coming years.
