IHG expands Holiday Inn brand in Ecuador.

This property brings three IHG-branded hotels to Ecuador including the current Holiday Inn Express Quito hotel, and the upcoming Holiday Inn Guayaquil Airport hotel slated to open next month.

“Ecuador has strong potential for hotel growth and is the perfect market for Holiday Inn hotels,” said Joel Eisemann, chief development officer, the Americas, IHG. “As well as being the country’s capital, Quito is also an important business and tourism center for the country and we look forward to bringing accommodations to fit the region’s needs.”

The hotel will be located approximately 22 miles from Quito’s city center and one mile from the new Mariscal Sucre International Airport, built to expand the capacity of the city’s former airport and estimated to serve five million travelers annually with room for future expansion. Surrounded by the Andes Mountains, Quito is the second most populous city in Ecuador and a UNESCO World Heritage site, having one of the best-preserved historic city centers in the Americas.

The new hotel 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. 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.

“We are so pleased with the signing of the new Holiday Inn Quito Airport,” said Gerardo Murray, vice president, Marketing Strategic Services for Mexico, Latin America and Caribbean at IHG. “The location is exciting and a very strategic fit for this brand as this hotel will be located near one of the busiest international airports in South America and of tremendous value to both business and leisure travelers visiting the region.”

4Hoteliers Image LibraryScheduled to debut in 2016, the four-story Holiday Inn Quito Airport will boast a modern facade and design featuring 130 guestrooms. The location is intended to cater to both corporate and leisure travelers, looking for accommodations close to the airport. The hotel will be equipped with maximum sound insulation, built to minimize airport noise to ensure a pleasurable and convenient stay for guests, and will also feature an array of on-site amenities, including an indoor swimming pool, restaurant, fitness center and 6,000 sq.-ft. of meeting space. Room Service Right … On Time™, at all Holiday Inn hotels, ensures that guests’ room service orders are accurate and delivered on time, every time.

Holiday Inn hotels feature a residential atmosphere that is warm, trend forward and comfortable. Guest beds are made using crisp, white bedding with pillows that come in two comfort levels: “soft” and “firm.” The residential design will include business-focused necessities such as an ergonomic workstation and data ports with the bathrooms including a multifunctional showerhead, as well as a signature shower curtain with curved rod, and amenities. Additionally, each room will have standard Holiday Inn guestroom accommodations – comfortable double, queen or king-sized beds, a sitting area with a lounge chair, hairdryer, micro fridge, coffee maker, iron and ironing board.

The hotel is owned by BPO Asesores Empresariales S.A., which also owns the Holiday Inn Guayaquil Airport opening later this year and is franchised by an affiliate of IHG. IHG has 42 Holiday Inn hotels and Holiday Inn Express hotels throughout Latin America and the Caribbean, and has been serving Latin America for more than 65 years. With hotels situated in nearly every key market throughout the region, IHG has more than 75 hotels in Central and South America and the Caribbean.
