IHG to open three UK Holiday Inn hotels

27 Sep 2013 by GrahamSmith

Intercontinental Hotels Group has announced the opening of three new Holiday Express properties in the UK.

Holiday Inn Express Edinburgh Airport and Holiday Inn Darlington - North A1M, Jct.59 are scheduled to open in spring 2014, with Holiday Inn Express London - Ealing following a year later.

The 80-room Darlington property will feature "numerous" meeting rooms, a gym, bar and restaurant.

The 95-room Edinburgh and 75-room London Ealing hotels will both have a "Great Room" combining the hotel reception and bar, breakfast room and seating for guests.

All are opening under franchise agreements.

Robert Shepherd, IHG's chief development officer, said: "These investments in the Holiday Inn brand family reflect its success not only in Europe, but also globally as the brands continue to appeal to both investors and consumers in an increasingly competitive hotel market."

Earlier this week, IHG announced it is to open a new Crowne Plaza property in central London (see news, September 25).
