As Cuba braces for an influx of U.S. tourists, French hotelier AccorHotels is expanding its presence there, the company's Cuba head, Eric Peyre, reported last month.

The company, which has been in Cuba since 1995, currently manages three properties there: the 178-room Mercure Sevilla Havana in the UNESCO world heritage site neighborhood of La Habana Vieja, the 385-room Mercure Playa de Oro in the seaside resort town Varadero, and the recently opened 522-room Pullman Cayo Coco in the central province of Ciego de Avila.

According to Peyre, AccorHotels will open its fourth hotel on the island, the luxury Sofitel So Havana, by the end of 2018.
