New Holiday Inn property launched in OMR, Chennai
Global hotel chain InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG), recently launched the Holiday Inn Chennai OMR IT Expressway. The 202-room hotel marks the fifth IHG Hotel in Chennai and the first Holiday Inn in the city. The hotel is located on OMR.
Being in the proximity of Tidel Park and IT companies such as Cognizant Tech Solutions, HCL Technologies and Cisco Systems, the hotel aims to cater to corporate and MICE travelers as well as leisure travelers exploring Chennai. The company also expressed that it is on track to having 150 hotels open or in the pipeline within the next 10-15 years. This growth will largely be driven by the Holiday Inn brand family with a focus on Crowne Plaza and InterContinental Hotels and Resorts in key gateway cities.
IHG signed three Holiday Inn Express hotels in India with existing owners. This includes the Holiday Inn Express and Suites in the Delhi & NCR area, Holiday Inn Express and Suites, Gurgaon Sector 90. The third deal was with Holiday Inn Express Kolkata Airport. All the three Holiday Inn Express hotels are set to open in the next two to three years.
Sudeep Jain, VP, Development, SW Asia, IHG said: “Signing three new properties with existing owners is indicative of the growing recognition of Holiday Inn Express in India. All three properties will draw synergies from IHG hotels nearby and will reinforce our position in the zone. IHG already has a strong and growing presence in India. We are looking at developing our portfolio further in Nepal, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh and Pakistan.”
