IHG Breaks Ground on Two Staybridge Suites in Mexico

LONDON—InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG) has broke ground on two new-build, 120-room Staybridge Suites hotels in the Mexican cities of Irapuato and Silao. Grupo Presidente, one of IHG’s long-term partners in Mexico, will operate both properties.

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 F&B 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 will be located in the state of Guanajuato and are slated to open in late 2017.

Both properties will each feature a mix of 84 studios, 24 one-bedroom suites and 12 two-bedroom suites, and amenities will include complimentary, daily American-style breakfast buffet and The Social, a complimentary evening reception. There will be 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 will be managed by Grupo Presidente, which has been operating seven Presidente InterContinental Hotels, as well as a Holiday Inn hotel and two Holiday Inn Resort hotels, for the last 20 years in Mexico. The two new properties in Irapuato and Silao will join six other Staybridge Suites properties already open across Mexico.

IHG has had a presence in Mexico for more than 40 years, and currently has 135 hotels open in Mexico representing 21,167 rooms, with 22 additional hotels in the pipeline.
