IHG drives more growth for the Holiday Inn brand in the UK.
Monday, 14th April 2014

IHG’s owner partner Dominvs Group has began construction on Holiday Inn® Manchester - City Centre and Dominvs Group has also entered into a franchise agreement with IHG for its first Holiday Inn hotel in Scotland, Holiday Inn Dumfries.

Upon completion, Holiday Inn Manchester – City Centre will be a 306-room property located in the heart of Manchester, close to Manchester Piccadilly train station.   Thanks to its prime location, the hotel is set to benefit from a healthy mix of leisure clientele attending local cultural and sporting events and corporate travellers frequenting the city centre. 

The franchised hotel, due to open in 2016, will feature meeting and conference facilities as well as the brand’s signature Open Lobby.   The Holiday Inn Open Lobby takes a unique approach to the in-hotel experience for guests, which has transformed the traditional hotel lobby format by combining the front desk, lobby, restaurant, bar, lounge area and business centre into one open, cohesive space, while refreshing the design to give it a more contemporary feel. The concept has been established by understanding how people use space at home in order to give guests the most flexibility, whether they’re looking to eat, relax, work, or have fun in one integrated space.

Robert Shepherd, Chief Development Officer Europe, IHG said: “The Holiday Inn brand has been around for more than 60 years but its commitment to innovation and comfort means it remains relevant for our owners and our guests.  We’re delighted to be developing more hotels with Dominvs Group, and growing our presence in the UK still further.”

Preetpal Ahluwalia, Hospitality Director of Dominvs Group: “Only a matter of weeks ago we opened our Holiday Inn Darlington - North A1M Jct.59 and already, we have two additional hotel projects underway with IHG.  The Holiday Inn brand was most certainly the right choice for us and will continue to be the right choice for our guests nationwide. We eagerly await the opening our first Holiday Inn hotel in Scotland.”
