Crowne Plaza Belgrade

BELGRADE, SERBIA—IHG has opened the first Crowne Plaza in Serbia—Crowne Plaza Belgrade. Boasting the largest hotel ballroom in the country, the hotel’s meeting facilities further set it apart from the competition.

Originally opened as InterContinental Belgrade in 1979, the hotel was bought by Delta Holding in 2008. Delta Holding has since signed a new management agreement with IHG and has invested in the transformation of this famous hotel into a Crowne Plaza. The hotel’s exterior has been retained while the interior has been completely restyled to encompass a simplistic design and large welcoming spaces.

Located in the business district of Belgrade, the hotel is a five-minute drive from Belgrade’s city center and a 15-minute drive from Nikola Tesla International Airport. Crowne Plaza Belgrade features 416 rooms, two restaurants, lobby bar, an exhibition hall, a full-service business center, 12 meeting rooms and a fitness and spa center with a large swimming pool.
