IHG Hotels & Resorts has opened its new hotel, Holiday Inn Express Washington, DC Downtown in the US. 

The property is situated in the neighbourhood of Mt. Vernon Triangle and provides visitors with 247 spacious rooms having all the necessary amenities.

Operated under the ownership of Urgo Hotels & Resorts, Holiday Inn Express is steps away from famous DC locations such as the US Capitol, US Supreme Court, Library of Congress, Union Station and the National Mall among others.

The rooms in the hotel have a mini-fridge, microwave, 50” TV, coffee and tea and a comfortable bed. 

Holiday Inn Express also provides Wi-Fi access throughout the property as well as a fitness facility, which is accessible for 24 hours. 

Guests staying at the property can enjoy a complimentary Express Start breakfast with a selection of hot, fresh items.

It is also just a few steps away from the best restaurants, attractions, shopping and corporate and government office buildings in the region.

Additionally, with a 788ft2 rooftop meeting room or the wide pre-function space offering views of the Capitol Building, the property is ideal to conduct an event or a meeting. 

Holiday Inn Express Washington, DC Downtown general manager Mike Hammond said: “We are thrilled to bring the world’s largest hotel brand to the very centre of our nation’s capital. 

“The millions of leisure and business travellers who visit DC each year now have a simple, smart hotel to choose from. 

“At our hotel, guests will notice the many details that reflect the area and provide a unique stay.” 

In November this year, IHG opened the first dual-branded avid hotels and Holiday Inn & Suites property in Mt. Juliet, Tennessee.
