IHG to soon open its fourth Holiday Inn Express hotel in Bengaluru
InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG) will soon launch Holiday Inn Express Bengaluru Bommasandra. The company has signed a management agreement with Thanishq Grande Hotels & Resorts for this hotel.
Featuring 170 keys, the new Holiday Inn Express hotel is likely to be operational by Q4 2022.
Currently, IHG operates three Holiday Inn Express hotels in Bengaluru. With the recent addition, the company will further strengthen the brand’s presence in the city.
Sudeep Jain, Vice President, Development, IHG South West Asia, said, “We are excited to collaborate with Thanishq Grande Hotels & Resorts Private Limited for a new Holiday Inn Express Hotel in Bengaluru. The brand has received a phenomenal response in India and in the last couple of years, we have significantly increased the brand’s footprint across key cities. This growth is also aligned with our strategy to expand our midscale offering and cater to the increasing number of domestic, ‘blesiure’ travelers in the country.”
“Bengaluru is one of the fastest-growing major metropolis in India and we see tremendous opportunity in the market to expand our portfolio across segments. Earlier this year, we announced the signing of an InterContinental hotel and a Crowne Plaza hotel in Bengaluru. With the new Holiday Inn Express signing, we are expanding our offering and catering to the needs of various different guest segments with varying preferences and needs, visiting the city,” he added.
S Sudeesh, Director, Thanishq Grande Hotels & Resorts, stated, “We are pleased to partner with IHG, a leading hospitality player, for Holiday Inn Express Bengaluru Bommasandra. The hotel will benefit from an excellent location, and with its contemporary design and great service culture, it will be a popular choice amongst the travelers visiting the city. IHG is known to have a strong distribution system, and a great loyalty programme and we are confident this will add to the success of the hotel. We look forward to working with IHG and welcoming our guests in 2022.”
