Golden Tulip Hospitality signed franchise agreements for three hotels in the Netherlands this month and two in the United Arab Emirates.


The 64-room Tulip Inn Sevenum in North Limburg, about 42 miles from Maastricht, offers suites, executive rooms and meetings facilities for 240 people.

The 64-room, newly renovated Tulip Inn Bodegraven, midway between Utrecht and The Hague, features a modern decor designed for leisure and business travelers, the company said.

The 76-room Golden Tulip Papendrecht in rural central Holland is the only four-star property in the region and features 11 conference rooms and a bistro restaurant.
