First Holiday Inn Express for Brisbane

InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG) and international investment group, Pro-Invest have signed a franchise agreement for a 226-room Holiday Inn Express hotel in Brisbane's Spring Hill.

The new Holiday Inn Express hotel will be located near the "Golden Triangle" of Brisbane’s CBD, with easy access to the city’s business, retail, entertainment and leisure hubs. Surrounded by a number of restaurants and bars, the high-rise Brisbane hotel will have two meeting rooms, on-site parking spaces and a generous breakfast area, called The Great Room, where guests can enjoy their free breakfast before heading out for the day’s activities.

Matthew Tripolone, head of development, Australasia, IHG, said: "The development of the new Holiday Inn Express in Brisbane is a significant milestone for IHG as it marks our return to the city with the entry of our largest and one of our fastest growing brands into the market. As the third most populous city in Australia, Brisbane has immense growth potential as it sees steady increase in the number of domestic and international travellers."
