AccorHotels Intros First Ibis Styles in U.S.

NEW YORK—As part of AccorHotels' continued expansion of its economy hotel brands worldwide, the global hospitality group has opened the ibis Styles New York LaGuardia Airport—the first ibis Styles property in the U.S.

Located at the former site of the LaGuardia Airport Hotel, the property has undergone a major renovation and will serve as the flagship hotel for the brand in the country.

Located just across Grand Central Parkway from LaGuardia Airport, the singular design of the 93-room hotel is inspired by the New York City subway. Guestrooms are inspired by different subway lines—green, yellow, red, blue—with furniture suited to today's lifestyles, including 26-in. HD LED televisions, desk areas, walls decorated with subway maps, and the brand’s signature bed.

F&B serves up a taste of New York, with authentic street-inspired snacks served at the Metrocard Lounge along with NYC subway card packages. Amenities include a free buffet breakfast and unlimited WiFi.

There are plans to open seven new ibis hotels in the region, specifically Mexico, this year and in 2018.
