InterContinental Hotels Group has unveiled plans for a dual branded hotel development in Munich, Germany.
The two hotels, including Holiday Inn Munich City Holiday Inn Munich City East and Holiday Inn Express Munich City, will be operated under a franchise agreement with Primestar Hotel Group.
Primestar Hotel Group managing director Wolfgang Gallas said: "We’re confident this fantastic combination, coupled with the hotels’ great location, will make these two hotels the number one choice for business and leisure guests travelling to Munich."
Expected to open in early 2018, the hotels will be near to Munich International Airport, as well as Berg am Laim S bahn train station.
The 189-room Holiday Inn Express Munich City East hotel will feature an express café and bar, and larger beds in the rooms.
The 118-room Holiday Inn Munich City will include the brand’s signature open lobby, as well as modern conference facilities with multi-functional meeting rooms, an all-day dining restaurant and bar, as well as a gym and sauna.
IHG Germany development associate vice-president Martin Bowen said: "Dual branded properties are relatively new in Germany and we are leading the field in this area.
"They’re attractive for hotel investors because of the significant cost savings and operating efficiencies, and they give guests a choice of two great hotels in the one location depending on their needs."
With a broad portfolio of hotel brands, IHG franchises, leases, manages or owns 4,900 hotels and 724,000 rooms in 100 countries.
