Holiday Inn Express launches first property in South East Asia

Holiday Inn Express, one of the world’s fastest growing hotel brands, officially launched the Holiday Inn Express Bangkok Siam in Thailand. The opening of the property in Bangkok represents Holiday Inn Express’ foray into the South East Asian market with 12 additional properties to follow in the next two years.

Located in downtown Bangkok, the 300-room property answers the growing demand for smart travel, from independent and savvy business and leisure travellers seeking comfort, convenience and value in the heart of cities and key leisure destinations. With its highly streamlined operations, the Holiday Inn Express Bangkok Siam focuses on providing guests with quality, well designed rooms, a core range of facilities and complimentary Wi-Fi and breakfast, at competitive prices while leveraging its location so that guests can make the most of their stay.

Holiday Inn Express is one of the nine brands under the InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG) portfolio. First launched in 1991, the brand has grown to more than 2,000 hotels worldwide – the biggest brand within the IHG estate.

Mr Jan Smits, CEO of IHG Asia, Middle East and Africa (AMEA), said, “We’ve seen Holiday Inn Express grow exponentially over the last two decades into a well-established brand in international markets. This points to strong demand for the brand from both our guests and investors.

“We’re confident that Holiday Inn Express will do very well in a region with popular leisure and business destinations and we’re thrilled to open our first South East Asian property right here in Bangkok.”
