TEN MOST POPULOUS COUNTRIES TO HAVE NO HOTELS FROM A MAJOR HOTEL CHAIN

Most countries in the world have at least one hotel owned by one of the top ten hotel groups in the world (Intercontinental Group, Wyndham, Marriott, Hilton, Accor, Choice, Best Western, Starwood, Carlson, Hyatt, most of which containing multiple brand names). In general, the hotels which do not are the more isolated nations, countries at war (including civil war) or cases (like Iran in 1979) where the government ended all global hotel contracts. Iraq and Angola, however, have hotels under construction owned by one of the top ten groups as of March 2012.

3. Burma
4. Sudan
5. Iraq*
6. Afghanistan
7. North Korea
