InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG) announced the newest addition to its Latin America portfolio with the opening of the 196-room Holiday Inn Express® Panama Distrito Financiero hotel located in Panama City, Panama and a Holiday Inn Resort® hotel in West Bay Beach in Northern Michigan.

The Holiday Inn Express Panama Distrito Financiero hotel is located within walking distance from a variety of restaurants, international companies and the Punta Pacifica Hospital – the first hospital in Latin America affiliated with the prestigious Johns Hopkins Medicine International. Costa del Este Business Park and shopping malls, such as Multiplaza Pacific and Multicentro are also close by.

The new hotel features complimentary high-speed Internet access, an outdoor swimming pool and sundeck, business center, fitness center and more than 2,500 sq ft of meeting space, equipped with the latest technology and audiovisual equipment. The new hotel offers guests a comfortable, yet affordable, stay to ensure a pleasurable experience. All guestrooms offer a spacious, modern and well equipped interior, work desk with ergonomic chair, 37-inch flat screen TV, iPhone® and iPod® dock alarm clock, free local calls, in-room complimentary coffee, safe deposit facilities and choice of soft or firm pillows.

On the other hand, the new Holiday Inn Resort hotel in Northern Michigan is located on the shores of West Grand Traverse Bay. The property re-opened this month as a Holiday Inn Resort brand hotel following a $6 million renovation. The Holiday Inn Resort brand now boasts nearly 40 locations across the globe.

Located in Traverse City, Mich., the four-story, 140,000 sq. foot property has 179 rooms including some KidSuites® rooms that feature bunk beds and a kids TV area with a gaming console. Within walking distance to downtown Traverse City, the hotel offers 500 feet of prime beachfront access to West Grand Traverse Bay as well as an on-site marina equipped with boat and personal watercraft rentals, bicycle rentals and the largest catamaran – the Nauticat – on the Great Lakes, which leaves the hotel dock three times a day for cruises on West Bay. The resort location offers access to the TART trail system, enabling visitors to enjoy outdoor hiking on one of Northern Michigan’s popular trails.

The Holiday Inn Resort brand transitioned from the Holiday Inn SunSpree® Resorts brand in 2007 as a part of the Holiday Inn global brand relaunch. The Holiday Inn® brand family’s $1 billion global brand relaunch, the largest project of its kind in hospitality history, continues to drive increased quality and consistency across the global portfolio. The hotel will feature a contemporary image with emphasis on arrival and welcome services, guestroom and guest bath comfort and a redesigned logo and signage.

Guests staying at West Bay Beach, a Holiday Inn Resort hotel can enjoy on-site dining including Shimmers on The Bay – with a beautiful waterfront patio offering seasonal live entertainment, seven nights a week. Additional guest amenities include a whirlpool, sauna, fitness center, a kids’ game room, Kids Club with activities, two heated pools, an outdoor pool deck offering cabana style seating and beverage service and approximately 8,000 sq. ft. of meeting space that can accommodate up to 600 people.
