As a part of the agreement, the hotels will come up in Kolkata, Siliguri and Durgapur within the next two-three years. The hotel will add to IHG’s strong pipeline of Holiday Inn brand family hotels, which represent more than 85% of the company’s growth in India.

Holiday Inn Kolkata located next to City Centre 2 in New Town, will have 150 rooms, including four deluxe suites. The hotel will be built on an area of one lakh sq. ft., and will offer three specialty restaurants, two floors of banqueting facilities, swimming pool, gym and a spa. 

Holiday Inn Durgapur will be the first internationally branded hotel in Durgapur, located next to NSHM Knowledge Campus in Muchipara on National Highway 2. Built on an area of 80,000 sq. ft., the hotel will have 100 guest rooms, three banquet halls, a 24-hour coffee shop, three fine-dining restaurants, swimming pool, gym and a salon.

Holiday Inn Siliguri will be the first internationally branded hotel in the city and North Bengal area. Located on Hillcart Road near Darjeeling More, the hotel will be built on an area of one lakh sq. ft. with 80 rooms, three banquet halls, a 24-hour coffee shop, three specialty restaurants, swimming pool, health club and a salon.

On announcement of the partnership, Douglas Martell, Vice President Operations, South West Asia, IHG said, “It is a significant milestone for us today as IHG marks its entry into the eastern part of the country.  Holiday Inn as a brand focuses on needs of both the business and leisure travellers and we are confident that these hotels will address the increasing demands of today’s consumers who are familiar with global standards of hospitality. We are delighted to partner with Jain Group for this important step of our growth plans and look forward to a successful partnership.”

Commenting on the occasion, Shrayans Jain, Vice Chairman, Jain Group said, “We are pleased to join hands with IHG, one of the biggest hotel companies of the world, for our first venture into the hospitality sector, with the Holiday Inn brand. We are investing over 300 crores in developing the properties. The Holiday Inn, Kolkata is expected to be operational by the end of this year”.

Rishi Jain, Executive Director, Jain Group said, “We have commenced work for all the three properties. While the Kolkata hotel will be the first Holiday Inn in Kolkata, the Siliguri and Durgapur hotels will bring international level of hospitality services for the first time to these cities. We look forward to the opening of the hotels as each of the three hotels are situated at premium locations and we are confident of their success.”

There are currently eight Holiday Inn hotels in India with presence in New Delhi, Mumbai, Pune, Goa and other key destinations. Having started out as an inn in Memphis Tennessee in the US, the brand has become a well-recognized name across the globe for comfortable stay and guest services.
