QUERETARO, MEXICO—InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG) has opened the new-build, 100-room Candlewood Suites Queretaro-Juriquilla as the brand’s first property here in Mexico.

The six-story Candlewood Suites-Queretaro-Juriquilla property is located near main businesses and leisure attractions, including Parque Industrial Queretaro and Parque Industrial Jurica industrial parks as well as Antea Lifestyle Center and Juriquilla Golf course.

The hotel provides studio, one-bedroom and two-bedroom suites with fully equipped kitchens and executive desks. Amenities include a 24-hour fitness center, laundry facility, swimming pool, gazebo grill area and the Candlewood Lending Library with a variety of music and movies.
