IHG (InterContinental Hotels Group) is planning its third Holiday Inn hotel in Rome, the Holiday Inn Rome – Pisana.
Holiday Inn Rome – Pisana is due to open in quarter four of 2013, following a conversion from an existing hotel brand to an IHG branded hotel, and will operate under a franchise agreement with Roma Ovest S.r.l., part of JSH Group.
Featuring 229 bedrooms, two restaurants and an elegant lounge bar, the Holiday Inn Rome – Pisana is ideal for leisure travellers wanting to relax in a modern welcoming environment. The hotel’s seven meeting rooms equipped with the latest audio and visual technologies, and the addition of free Wi-Fi throughout the hotel caters to the needs of business travellers frequenting the city of Rome.
IHG’s Director of Development for Italy, Domenico Magnati, said: “The addition of this hotel to our portfolio of Holiday Inn properties in Rome is in line with our growth strategy for Europe. Our increased presence in this region will not only offer travellers a greater choice of hotels and improved flexibility, but will ensure we continue to anticipate the needs of our guests and respond to market demand.”
The hotel is located halfway between Rome City Centre and Rome Fiumicino Airport allowing easy travel to Rome’s impressive historical sites including the Vatican Museum, St. Peter’s Basilica, Trevi Fountain and the Colosseum.
IHG has 32 hotels (5, 026) rooms open in Italy, with another four in the pipeline that will open in the next three to five years.
The Holiday Inn brand is now the largest hotel brand in the world with over 400,000 rooms in over 100 countries.
