IHG Opens First Holiday Inn Express® Hotel in Barranquilla, Colombia

Published on : Monday, May 23, 2016

IHGInterContinental Hotels Group (IHG), one of the world’s leading hotel companies, today announces its arrival in Barranquilla, Colombia, with the opening of the newly built 18-floor, 154-room Holiday Inn Express® Barranquilla Buenavista hotel. IHG’s first Holiday Inn Express hotel in the city boasts an excellent location, in one of Barranquilla’s most exclusive areas, Buenavista. This property is IHG’s first in Barranquilla and will be joined later this year by the Crowne Plaza® Barranquilla property.


Gerardo Murray, Regional Vice President of Brands & Marketing, Mexico, Latin America and Caribbean, IHG said: “This particular neighborhood in Barranquilla, Buenavista, where the Holiday Inn Express property is situated, is thriving and offers both leisure and business travelers a perfect combination of activities to fulfill their needs and wants. We are thrilled to continue to grow the IHG portfolio in Colombia and offer travelers to this beautiful city the comfortable accommodations and efficient service of the Holiday Inn Express brand along with the opportunity to earn IHG® Rewards Club points when visiting the area.”


Barranquilla is situated on the northern coast of Colombia. From the city’s historical landmarks, skyscrapers overlooking the tropical lowlands, to the open-air shopping centers filled with upscale shops, the city is a booming metropolis. According to an analysis by BBVA Research completed in 2015, Barranquilla was one of the few Colombian cities to have an average economic growth rate of five percent, which motivated the nearly US$12 million investment by the hotel’s ownership company.


Owned by Grupo Contempo S.A.S. and managed by OXO Hoteles, the Holiday Inn Express Barranquilla Buenavista hotel is franchised by an affiliate of IHG. The property marks IHG’s fifth project with the ownership group.


The Holiday Inn Express Barranquilla Buenavista hotel offers guests a comfortable, yet affordable stay with innovative, preferred guest amenities to ensure a pleasant stay, including a fitness center, an outdoor swimming pool, complimentary high-speed Internet access, a business center, meeting spaces and complimentary parking. The complimentary Express Start™ breakfast bar features a full range of breakfast items, including regional and local dishes, a rotation of egg and meat selections, breads, yogurt, juices, fruit, pastries, cereals and coffee.
