InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG) has signed agreements to open two more Holiday Inn hotels in Germany: Holiday Inn Dresden – Am Zwinger and Holiday Inn Hamburg – HafenCity.
Holiday Inn Dresden – Am Zwinger will be managed by All Stars Hotels Management Company under a franchise agreement.
The property will be converted from an office building into a 144-room hotel with five meeting rooms, a gym, bar and lounge area. It will be opened for travellers by the end of this year.
Holiday Inn Hamburg will be located in HafenCity and will be operated under a franchise agreement with existing multiple development agreement partner Tristar Hotel und Management.
The 265-room property will feature 600m² of meeting space and Holiday Inn’s signature Open Lobby.
It is slated to open in spring 2017.
IHG Germany development director Rene Schappner said that Germany is a priority market for the brand.
"Holiday Inn is one of the most recognised hotel brand in the world and both hotels are located in ideal spots and will soon be ready to welcome domestic and international guests to stay with them," Schappner added.
IHG franchises, leases, manages or owns over 4,700 hotels and 688,000 guest rooms in nearly 100 countries and territories, with more than 1,100 hotels in its development pipeline.
