InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG®), one of the world’s largest hotel companies today announced the signing of two further hotels in London with the Hotel Indigo® London - Barbican and Holiday Inn® - Watford Junction. As a result, over the last nine months IHG signed all six of its current European brands into its Greater London pipeline, further reinforcing IHG’s presence in the UK’s capital.
The two new signings join the InterContinental® London - The O2, Crowne Plaza® London - Albert Embankment, Staybridge Suites® London - Vauxhall and Holiday Inn Express® London – Ealing.
Due to open this summer, Holiday Inn Watford Junction will be a 92 -room property operating under a franchise agreement with Nine Hospitality Ltd. Featuring the Holiday Inn Open Lobby, the hotel’s excellent location is anticipated to attract a healthy mix of leisure and corporate guests.
Meanwhile IHG continues to build momentum in East London with the addition of another Hotel Indigo property - Hotel Indigo - London Barbican. The newly constructed 101-room hotel will operate under a franchise agreement with long standing Owner Partner Sanguine who currently have six IHG hotels open in the UK and two under construction. Situated in a vibrant area in the heart of one of London’s business hubs, the hotel is well placed to receive a steady stream of business travellers as well as leisure guests drawn to the local cultural and arts attractions. The hotel is due to open in 2016.
