IHG Expands the Holiday Inn Brand in Mexico

The FINANCIAL -- InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG) announces the opening of the new-build 188-room Holiday Inn & Suites Leon Plaza Mayor hotel. This hotel, following a more than $260 million Mexican pesos investment by the ownership group, joins three other IHG properties in the city: the Holiday Inn Leon hotel, the Holiday Inn Leon Convention Center hotel, and the Crowne Plaza Leon hotel, and marks IHG’s tenth property in the state of Guanajuato.

Gerardo Murray, Vice President, Brands and Marketing, Mexico, Latin America and The Caribbean, IHG, said: “Leon is a growing market, and the Holiday Inn brand is a great addition to the city’s financial area. Whether guests are traveling for business or to visit many of Leon’s cultural and historical sites such as the Basilica, the Templo Expiatorio or the Museum of Art and History, we know they’ll have an enjoyable stay from the moment they arrive and experience the hotel’s great facilities, unmatched comfort and convenience.”

The Holiday Inn brand opened the doors of its first hotel more than 60 years ago and since then, has been making travel more enjoyable for generations of travelers all over the world. Whether on the journey of a lifetime, a family vacation or business, guests know they can expect the contemporary design, modern amenities, and warm, welcoming service that distinguish the Holiday Inn brand, according to IHG.

Holiday Inn hotels are designed to provide a welcoming and sociable environment for business and leisure travelers alike spending time away from home. Amenities including free Wi-Fi, easily accessible outlets throughout guestrooms and convenient open public areas ideal for collaboration or post-meeting relaxation help travelers stay productive and accomplish their goals in a warm and social atmosphere.
