26 June, 2013 - IHG (InterContinental Hotels Group) continues to grow its presence in the UK with the signing of three new hotels – Holiday Inn Huntingdon - Racecourse in Cambridgeshire, Holiday Inn Glasgow Green in Scotland and Holiday Inn - Watford Junction in Hertfordshire.
The first of the three to open will be Holiday Inn Huntingdon - Racecourse , a 98 room new build due to open its doors in quarter three of 2013. The hotel will operate under a franchise agreement with HP Hotels Limited who also own Holiday Inn Express Nuneaton.
In 2014, a franchise agreement with Nine Hospitality LTD will see Holiday Inn - Watford Junction open, followed by the opening of Holiday Inn Glasgow Green under franchise with VDL Management LTD. All three hotels will feature Holiday Inn’s new open lobby concept, providing guests with an open area to relax, have a coffee or host an informal business meeting.
IHG’s Development Director UK & Ireland, Richard Arman, said: "The Holiday Inn brand is an important driver of growth in the UK. These signings will help meet the demand for quality midscale accommodation for national and international travellers whilst building national scale in a priority market for us.”
The properties will be conveniently situated near popular recreational areas with excellent transport links. Holiday Inn Glasgow Green will be located nearby the 2014 Commonwealth Games & Games Legacy, and Holiday Inn Huntingdon - Racecourse will be home to the well-known horse racing venue. Meanwhile Holiday Inn - Watford Junction will offer great access to Watford Junction train station that offers a 20 minute service to London.
Chris Phoenix, Director of HP Hotels Limited, said: “We are very much looking forward to working with IHG on this new Holiday Inn venture at what we are sure will be an exciting and successful location.”
Every Holiday Inn features signature bedding that includes a pillow menu, as well as meeting and on-site business facilities and a Kids Stay and Eat Free programme, providing guests with a relaxed comfortable atmosphere and the services that business travellers need.
Holiday Inn is the largest midscale hotel brand in the UK with 133 Holiday Inn and 124 Holiday Inn Express hotels.
Holiday Inn hotels participate in IHG's guest loyalty programme, Priority Club Rewards, the industry's first and largest guest loyalty program with 73 million members.
