InterContinental Hotels Group has announced the opening of the new-build, 108-room Holiday Inn Express hotel in Tegucigalpa, Honduras.
The hotel is located in the heart of the Tegucigalpa’s new financial and commercial district of Plaza San Rafael, and near the country’s major financial institutions, including BAC Honduras, Banco Davivienda and the Central American Bank for Economic Integration.
The Holiday Inn Express Tegucigalpa hotel is also connected to some of the main city thoroughfares such as Boulevard Morazan and is conveniently accessible to a variety of restaurants.
Owned and managed by Latin American Hospitality Management, a subsidiary of Grupo Agrisal, the hotel is franchised by an affiliate of IHG and is IHG’s fifth property in Honduras.
Additionally, the property is the second IHG-branded hotel in Tegucigalpa, joining the Real InterContinental Tegucigalpa hotel and the second Holiday Inn Express property for Honduras, joining the Holiday Inn Express San Pedro Sula.
“Bringing the Holiday Inn Express brand to Tegucigalpa aligns with IHG’s growth strategy of expanding in key cities around the globe. Tegucigalpa is the capital and the most populous city in Honduras,” said Alvaro Diago, chief operating officer, Latin America & Caribbean, Americas, IHG.
“This is also the fifth project with long-time partner Grupo Agrisal, and we look forward to continuing our strong relationship with them.”
The Holiday Inn Express brand is one of the largest and fastest-growing hotel brands in the industry, and in order to meet the ever-changing needs of its guest, IHG invested in the $1 billion Holiday Inn global brand re-launch, the largest in hospitality history.
The re-launch continues to drive increased quality and consistency across the global portfolio, and new hotels feature a contemporary image with emphasis on arrival and welcome services, guestroom and guest bath comfort and a redesigned logo and signage.
The hotel offers guests a comfortable, yet affordable stay with innovative, preferred-guest upgrades to ensure a pleasurable experience with amenities that include an outdoor pool, a 24-hour fitness centre, complimentary high-speed internet access and a business centre.
Business travellers will find large desks with ergonomic chairs, free local phone and toll free phones with private voicemail.
