Holiday Inn wins biz travel awards

Holiday Inn Hotels & Resorts has been named Best Mid-Scale Hotel Brand in Asia Pacific and Best Mid-Scale Hotel Brand in the World at the Business Traveller Asia-Pacific Awards for the sixth consecutive year. The accolades clearly show that Holiday Inn Hotels & Resorts continue to deliver the levels of service, comfort and value that appeal to frequent travellers.

The coveted Business Traveller Asia Pacific Awards reflect the views of frequent business travellers who take part in its annual survey of travel-related services. The survey results are independently analyzed by market information group Taylor Nelson Sofres.

A. Patrick Imbardelli, chief executive, InterContinental Hotels Group Asia Pacific, said: “It is heartening to know that those who travel frequently on business have consistently rated Holiday Inn Hotels & Resorts as the best brand in the mid-scale segment, year after year since 2001. We certainly do not take Holiday Inn’s leadership position for granted, as we are always looking for ways to ensure that our expanding portfolio of Holiday Inns will continue to meet and exceed the expectations of our guests. We are grateful for this endorsement and will continue to work as a team to maintain the brand’s enduring popularity.”

Holiday Inn Hotels & Resorts was established in 1952 and is today one of the most widely recognized brands in the world. There are currently over 1,400 Holiday Inns globally, including 89 in Asia Pacific. The most recent Holiday Inn launches in the region include Holiday Inn Shifu Guangzhou, Holiday Inn Jasmine Suzhou, Holiday Inn Seaview Qinhuangdao, Holiday Inn Yueyang and Holiday Inn Chengdu West Century City in China. Scheduled to open soon are Holiday Inn Resort Regent Beach Cha-Am in Thailand, Holiday Inn Wellington in New Zealand, as well as Holiday Inn Binhai Tianjin and Holiday Inn Jiuzhai Jarpo, both in China.

Earlier this year, Holiday Inn Hotels & Resorts also won the prestigious China Hotel Pioneer Award, which was presented at the China Hotel Development and Financing Seminar. The award recognises the groundbreaking efforts and tremendous success of the brand in China since the opening of Holiday Inn Lido Beijing 22 years ago.
