Two new hotels mark IHG’s return to Rio de Janeiro

  • Published by Vedat
InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG) makes its return to the Rio de Janeiro market with the signing of the new-build Holiday Inn® Porto Maravilha and Holiday Inn Express® Porto Maravilha hotels.

The 32-story hotels will be located in Rio de Janeiro’s revitalized downtown area of Porto Maravilha. The hotels, owned by Odebrecht Realizaçöes Imobiliárias and FII PM Caixa Fundo de Investimento Imobiliário Porto Maravilha, will be managed by IHG.

“We see great potential for our brands in Brazil,” said Joel Eisemann, chief development officer, the Americas, IHG. “The redevelopment plan in Porto Maravilha aims to restore the city’s heritage while enhancing the city through new structures and economic opportunity. We are delighted to serve as a part of the city’s revitalization and for the opportunity to reenter the booming Rio de Janeiro market during a time of such promising evolution.”

The 244-room Holiday Inn® Porto Maravilha and 350-room Holiday Inn Express® Porto Maravilha will be situated in the heart of Porto Maravilha. Museums, parks and new restaurants are opening nearby as the area undergoes its restoration plan before the 2016 Summer Olympics is hosted in Rio de Janeiro. Both hotels are expected to open by July 2016 for the Olympic games.

The new hotels will be designed in line with the Holiday Inn Brand Family’s $1 billion global brand relaunch, the largest project of its kind in hospitality history. The relaunch continues to drive increased quality and consistency across the global portfolio and comprises emphasis on arrival and welcome services, guestroom and guest bath comfort and a redesigned logo and signage. Both hotels will share the same tower and operational area, allowing the operational synergies and economies of scale to manage these properties.
