InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG) will be debuting in Agra with the launch of Holiday Inn Agra MG Road. The hospitality company has partnered with Hotel Marina Agra for this project, which is expected to open this year.

Located on MG Road, Holiday Inn Agra MG Road is a 15-minute drive from tourist spots such as Agra Fort and Taj Mahal. The 150-key hotel will feature a spacious banquet hall for organising MICE and social events.

Its F&B options include an all-day dining outlet, a specialty cuisine restaurant and a bar. An outdoor pool and a gymnasium are some of the recreational facilities that will be available at this IHG property.

Sudeep Jain, vice president, development, South West Asia, IHG said, “We are delighted to partner with Hotel Agra Marina to introduce our first hotel in Agra, under the Holiday Inn banner. Agra has been an important destination on the tourism map of India, and we are excited to be setting foot in this growing market. With an excellent location, facilities and best in class amenities, we are confident the hotel will be a great choice for varied guest profiles with diverse requirements. The Holiday Inn brand family is our growth driver in India, and this signing underscores our commitment to further strengthen our position in the midscale hotel segment.”
