LONDON—IHG has signed four more Holiday Inn hotels in the UK: 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 located just over three miles from Cardiff City Centre at Jct.32. Kew Green Hotels, a long-standing operating partner of IHG, will operate the 95-room rebranded property. The hotel will feature leisure facilities including a pool, spa, sauna and gym, as well as a bar and restaurant, boardroom, four meeting rooms and a newly designed lobby.
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 renovated ground floor with open lobby, restaurant and coffee bar. The hotel is situated half way between Heathrow International Airport and central London.
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. The property is located to the west of the M25 Motorway with access to Heathrow Airport Terminal 5.
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, meeting and conference facilities and a sky bar on the top floor of the hotel offering views of the surrounding area. Located close to the M6 Motorway, the hotel offers transport links to Birmingham City Centre and Birmingham International Airport.
