IHG, Alkoer to Develop Two Staybridge Suites in Mexico

GUANAJUATO, MEXICO—IHG and Mexican-based Alkoer have entered into a joint venture to develop two Staybridge Suites hotels in the cities of Irapuato and Silao, both in the state of Guanajuato.

The Staybridge Suites Irapuato hotel will be located eight miles north of downtown Irapuato along Federal Highway 45 and in close proximity to the Marabis Plaza, home to retail and food and beverage outlets. The Staybridge Suites Silao hotel will be situated in the Guanajuato Inland Port, the main business park in the Bajio region, and next to the Del Bajio International Airport. Both nine-story hotels are slated to open in late 2017.

The Staybridge Suites brand is designed for business and leisure travelers who are spending an extended time away from home for business, relocation or leisure. Both 120-room properties in Irapuato and Silao will each feature a mix of 84 studios, 24 one-bedroom suites and 12 two-bedroom suites. Amenities will include a complimentary, daily American-style hot breakfast buffet and The Social – the Staybridge Suites brand’s complimentary evening reception. These properties will have on-site guest laundry facilities, 24-hour fitness and business centers, home theater, an outdoor swimming pool and outdoor living room with barbecue and fire pit.

The hotels are part of a joint venture between Alkoer and IHG and will be managed by an affiliate of IHG.
