Holiday Inn Express

 

Brand standards

 

A smart approach to design


Holiday Inn Express Next Generation has:

  • Mandated design ensures clear specification and high quality finish
  • Redesigned robust FF&E reduces the need for costly refurbishments
  • Smart design of smaller rooms makes them feel larger
  • Ready-fitted bathroom pods are ideal for new-build constructions
  • Round-the-clock food and beverage offers a better service for guests
  • Still no kitchen or F&B skills, maintaining the lean staffing model.


For Holiday Inn Express hotels wanting to upgrade to the Next Generation, IHG offers a full suite of refurbishment options. For more information, please contact europedevelopment@ihg.com or your local IHG developer.
