InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG) has opened its first Holiday Inn Express hotel in Port Moresby, Papua New Guinea.

The 199-room property, Holiday Inn Express Port Moresby, is located in the centre of the government district in the Papua New Guinean capital.

The property is close to the Jacksons International Airport, as well as to the Papua New Guinea’s Parliament and many government departments and diplomatic offices. It also offers easy access to the Royal Port Moresby Golf Club, native flora and fauna in the Port Moresby Nature Park and historic artefacts at the National Museum and Art Gallery.

"The hotel includes a gym with two squash courts, a jogging track and a fully equipped weights room."

IHG Australasia, Japan, Korea and franchise chief operating officer Karin Sheppard said: "Papua New Guinea is a unique market and it’s an important step to now have three of our great brands, Crowne Plaza, Holiday Inn and Holiday Inn Express, available to guests in the city.

"The first Holiday Inn Express hotel in South East Asia launched in 2012 and since then, we’ve already grown to a total of 12 hotels across Singapore, Thailand and Indonesia. We’re looking forward to the launch of the brand in Australia next year too."

The new property features a modern queen room and twin rooms, in addition to the free on-site undercover parking and a complimentary airport bus for international travellers.
