Delhi, India, 6 May 2015: InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG), one of world’s leading hotel companies, today announced the signing of the 286-room Crowne Plaza Chennai Adyar Park with Adyar Gate Hotels Limited. 

The hotel, which IHG is now managing, will be rebranded as Crowne Plaza Chennai Adyar Park, marking the entry of the company's Crowne Plaza brand into the key Indian city. The hotel joins Holiday Inn Express Chennai Mahindra World City, making it the second IHG hotel in Chennai.

 

Located in the city's central business district and taking the site of the existing Sheraton Park Chennai, the hotel bears additional significance for IHG as it was originally the site of the company’s first Holiday Inn to open in India in the 1970s. 

 

Just 10 kilometres from Chennai International Airport, the hotel features a wide array of excellent dining options which include Dakshin, a popular destination for regional cuisines from India’s southern peninsula; Cappuccino, the 24-hour all day dining restaurant; The Residency which boasts global culinary delights and On the Rocks, popular amongst guests and locals for its grilled cuisine and famous for hosting Michelin star-winning chefs. 

 

Guests can also enjoy evening drinks and bar snacks at The Westminster bar overlooking the pool; and round up the night at Gatsby 2000, the hotel's night club which is also one of the city’s most popular private event spaces.

 

As a globally recognised business travel focused brand, Crowne Plaza Chennai Adyar Park is equipped with a 24-hour business centre and generous meeting space including a ballroom which can seat 500 people. Guests can enjoy the fully-equipped health club and an outdoor pool during their leisure time. 

 

Shantha de Silva, Head of South West Asia, IHG said: “Chennai is already one of the largest industrial and commercial centres in South India, and as it grows in prominence as one of the country's key cultural, economic and educational hubs, there is great potential for growth in tourism and hospitality. It is with great pleasure that we are working together with Adyar Gate Hotels Limited to launch our Crowne Plaza brand here to cater to the increasing number of business and leisure travellers." 

 

Manish Goyal, Joint Managing Director, Adyar Gate Hotels Limited said, “IHG has a strong reputation as a hotel operator and we are pleased to be working with them to open Crowne Plaza Chennai Adyar Park in Chennai. The hotel has great potential to increase its share of business through a new and improved corporate and leisure focus and we’re confident we found the right partner to deliver these great guest experiences.” 

 

There are currently eight Crowne Plaza hotels and resorts open across India, and five additional hotels due to open in the next three to five years. 

 

IHG has 21 hotels (4,100 rooms) open in 13 cities in India across four brands: InterContinental, Crowne Plaza, Holiday Inn, Holiday Inn Express. The company has 47 hotels in its development pipeline, including Holiday Inn Express Chennai OMR and Holiday Inn Chennai OMR Tidel Park which will open in Chennai within the next three to five years.
