Intercontinental Hotels Group (IHG) is set to open its first Holiday Inn in the Polish city of Gdansk next month.

The 240-room Holiday Inn Gdansk – City Centre is located on Granary Island, a newly-launched development that has regenerated a former trading port on the Motlawa river

The development will also include hundreds of apartments, a new marina and public facilities including a new promenade.

The seven-storey hotel has five conference rooms, a 24-hour gym, restaurant and a Sky Bar.

It will also feature the new Holiday Inn ‘open lobby’ concept, which includes a bar and work spaces.

“Thanks to its unique location within the city, conference space and dining options, this hotel will have a big impact in the growing economy of Gdansk, providing true hospitality to business and leisure travellers alike,” said Karin Sheppard, IHG’s Managing Director for Europe.

“Poland has been a very important market for us in Europe and a market with a great success story. It has the eight largest economy in the European Union with a rapidly growing hotel industry.”

IHG currently has 11 hotels in Poland across its Intercontinental, Holiday Inn, Holiday Inn Express and Hotel Indigo brands.

It is set to open an additional 17 in the country by 2021, also introducing its Crowne Plaza and Staybridge Suites brands.
