Holiday Inn Express Maceio Ponta Verde in Brazil has been opened by InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG).
The new-build, 160-room hotel is located one block from beautiful Ponta Verde beach in Maceió, the capital of the coastal state Alagoas, in north-east Brazil and one of the top tourist destinations in the country.
Boasting a modern architectural design, the Holiday Inn Express Maceio Ponta Verde’s interior is decorated with a collection of local artworks and folk-art inspired crafts from the area, blending the richness of Maceió’s cultural heritage with the hotel’s contemporary and fresh style.
The property also features an array of amenities, including free high-speed wireless Internet connections throughout the hotel and four meeting rooms, totaling 1,614 square feet (150 square meters) and a 100-person capacity. Other amenities include an outdoor pool, fitness center and business center.
“We are delighted to continue to grow the Holiday Inn Express brand in the Northeastern part of Brazil by opening a hotel in a city like Maceio, well-known year-round for its powdery, white-sand beaches, emerald green waters, fabulous water sports and laid-back charm,” said Alvaro Diago, chief operating officer, IHG, Latin America & the Caribbean.
“We are devoted to continued expansion in the Brazilian market while maintaining our pledge to offer guests the highest quality services.”
Guest rooms at the property feature comfortable queen or king-sized beds and a sitting area with a lounge chair.
