InterContinental Hotels Group has announced the signing of four more Holiday Inn hotels in the U.K.: Holiday Inn Cardiff – North M4 Jct.32, Holiday Inn London – West, Holiday Inn London – Heathrow T5, and Holiday Inn Birmingham North – Cannock.
The first to open will be Holiday Inn Cardiff – North M4 Jct.32—opening in just a few weeks’ time. The 95-room rebranded property will be operated by Kew Green Hotels, a long standing operating partner of IHG. The hotel will feature a pool, spa, sauna, and gym, as well as a bar and restaurant, board room, four meeting rooms, and a newly designed lobby. Located just over three miles from Cardiff City Centre at Jct.32, the hotel has easy road and motorway access.
Set to open this August is Holiday Inn London – West, a 225-room property including 75 new rooms and 150 refurbished rooms, which will operate under a franchise agreement with first time IHG owner Mango Hotels. The hotel offers executive rooms, a number of meeting rooms, a rooftop open air terrace, as well as a fitness studio and a completely renovated ground floor with Open Lobby, restaurant, and coffee bar. Conveniently situated on Western Avenue half way between Heathrow International Airport and central London, the hotel is set to benefit from its prime location and the businesses nearby including the BBC and Park Royal Business Park, as well as entertainment venues Wembley Stadium and Wembley Arena.
Also opening this summer is Holiday Inn London – Heathrow T5. The converted 119-room hotel will operate under a franchise agreement with existing owner partner Arora Hotels Ltd. Ideally located to the west of the M25 Motorway with easy access to Heathrow Airport Terminal 5, the hotel is well placed to receive transit, crew, and corporate clientele.
Holiday Inn Birmingham North – Cannock opening in early 2015 will operate under a franchise agreement with existing owner partner Nine Hospitality Ltd. The property will be rebranded from an existing hotel into a Holiday Inn featuring 95-rooms, large meeting and conference facilities, and a sky bar on the top floor of the hotel offering panoramic views of the surrounding area. Located close to the M6 Motorway, the hotel has transport links to Birmingham City Centre and Birmingham International Airport.
