InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG), one of the world’s largest hotel companies, has announced the signing of three more Holiday Inn Express hotels in the UK: Holiday Inn Express London, Vauxhall Nine Elms, Holiday Inn Expres Leigh, Sports Village and Holiday Inn Express, Wigan in Greater Manchester.
Operating under a franchise agreement with first time IHG owner Heathdeal Ltd, the 132-room Holiday Inn Express London, Vauxhall Nine Elms will open later this year. The property will be rebranded from an existing hotel into a Holiday Inn Express.
Meanwhile, the 135-room Holiday Inn Express Leigh, Sports Village will open this summer operating under a franchise agreement with KS Hotels Limited. The recently built property will feature six meeting rooms, a bar, lounge and dining area, as well as an on-site car park with 165 car park spaces.
Opening in 2015 is the 87-room Holiday Inn Express Wigan, operating under a franchise agreement with Viking Bear Limited. Located nearby Wigan’s city center and within close proximity to DW Stadium, the hotel is well placed to receive guests from the stadium’s busy conference center, as well as sports fans and business travelers needing overnight accommodation.
Richard Arman, Director of Development, UK and Ireland, IHG said: “These three latest signings demonstrate that the Holiday Inn Express brand continues to be the smart choice for hotel owners and guests across the UK. The three properties are being developed in key locations and once open, will offer business and leisure guests a comfortable nights’ stay and friendly efficient service.”
