Holiday Inn Express Melbourne Little Collins marks the eighth Holiday Inn Express for Pro-Invest Hotels.
Holiday Inn Express, a mid-price hotel chain, has more than 3,000 properties across the globe.
In November last year, the brand expanded presence in Europe with the opening of Holiday Inn Express Dusseldorf – Hauptbahnhof in Germany.
In a separate development, IHG expanded its Hotel Indigo brand, with the opening of Hotel Indigo Inuyama Urakuen Garden.
Located in the Urakuen Garden, the property marks the brand’s third property in Japan.
