InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG) has announced the signing of a dual branded hotel development in Munich, Germany. The two hotels - Holiday Inn® Munich City - East and Holiday Inn Express® Munich City - East will operate under a franchise agreement with Primestar Hotel Group. Due to open in early 2018, the hotels are located within walking distance from Berg am Laim S bahn Train Station.
The hotels are also just a fifteen minute journey away from the city centre and Munich International Airport, allowing for a short commute for fair goers and business travellers.
The 189-room Holiday Inn Express Munich City - East hotel will be a ‘next generation’ Holiday Inn Express hotel, featuring the latest technology, an Express Café and Bar and larger cosier beds in the rooms. The new guest experience has been developed with industry-leading experts to meet the changing needs of today’s ‘smart traveller’ who seeks a short stay hotel experience that is efficient and uncomplicated.
Meanwhile the 118-room Holiday Inn Munich City - East hotel will feature the brand’s signature Open Lobby, as well as state-of-the-art conference facilities with multi-functional meeting rooms, an all-day dining restaurant and bar, as well as a gym and sauna.
With both hotels in the same building, the dual branded model allows for operational efficiencies through shared team members and facilities such as meeting space, leisure and fitness facilities and back of house areas.
IHG plans to double the number of hotels in Germany either open or in the pipeline over the next five years. IHG currently has the largest active development pipeline in Germany’s branded hotel market with more than 4,400 rooms.
