The Sun Hotel Group's first hotel, the £15m Holiday Inn London-Kingston South, has opened with the promise of 70 new jobs for the local community.
The property offers meeting and party facilities catering for up to 300, 116 rooms and a Pan-Asian restaurant.
The seven meeting spaces can seat between ten and 250 delegates.
Further north, Starboard Hotels has been given the green light to open the 202-bedroom Holiday Inn Express Hotel near to the Gateshead Quayside in early 2010.
