IHG opens Serbia's first Crowne Plaza

28 Jan 2014 by GrahamSmith

Intercontinental Hotels Group has opened the first Crowne Plaza hotel in Serbia.

The 416-room Crowne Plaza Belgrade originally opened as Intercontinental Belgrade in 1979.

In 2008, it was bought by Delta Holding — that company then signed a management agreement with IHG to reopen the property as a Crowne Plaza.

Crowne Plaza Belgrade

Crowne Plaza Belgrade, which has the largest ballroom in Serbia, is located in the city's business district and is a five-minute drive from the city centre and a 15-minute drive from Nikola Tesla International Airport.

It features two restaurants, a lobby bar, an exhibition hall, a full service business centre, 12 meeting rooms and a fitness and spa centre with the largest hotel swimming pool in Serbia.

IHG spokesman Rolf Hubner said: "Providing quality business services combined with a great night's sleep is the very fabric of the Crowne Plaza brand.

"It has been recognised as a reputable business hotel brand consistently for the last 30 years and today Crowne Plaza hotels continue to be globally relevant to ambitious career-focused travellers in the ever evolving corporate world."

Last week, IHG announced that it is to open a Crowne Plaza in Barcelona (see news, January 21).
