IHG to open dual-branded Munich development

30 Sep 2015 by GrahamSmith

Intercontinental Hotels Group has announced a dual-branded Holiday Inn/Holiday Inn Express property in Munich.

The hotels, Holiday Inn Munich City - East and Holiday Inn Express Munich City - East, will contain 118 and 189 guestrooms respectively.

The development is located within walking distance of Berg Am Laim S Bahn train station and is close to the city centre and Munich International airport.

Both hotels are scheduled to open in early 2018 and will operate under a franchise agreement with Primestar Hotel Group.

IHG said that with both properties occupying the same building, the dual-branded model allows for "operational efficiencies through shared team members and facilities".

The Holiday Inn hotel will feature "state-of-the-art conference facilities with multi-functional meeting rooms", an all-day dining restaurant and bar, a gym and a sauna. The Holiday Inn Express property will feature an Express Café and Bar.

Martin Bowen, IHG's associate vice president of development in Germany, said: "Dual branded properties are relatively new in Germany and we are leading the field in this area.

"They're attractive for hotel investors because of the significant cost savings and operating efficiencies, and they give guests a choice of two great hotels in the one location depending on their needs."

Last year, IHG opened the world's tallest Holiday Inn in New York (see news, November 2014).
