The new hotel will operate under franchise agreements in partnership with USAR Christchurch Limited, backed by well-known New Zealand hoteliers, the Sarin family.
The new Holiday Inn Express Christchurch hotel will sit conveniently in the Christchurch CBD and a mere 100 metres from the new convention centre due to open in 2019. The property will also be within reach of “The Frame”, a large green space featuring cafes and restaurants, cycle paths, walkways and large landscaped areas for festivals and events. IHG also has a Crowne Plaza hotel currently under construction in Christchurch due to open mid-2017.

Guests at Holiday Inn Express Christchurch will enjoy a smart and convenient stay which includes the essentials such as free and fast wi-fi available in guest rooms and throughout the hotel; Free Express Start™ Breakfast or a Grab & Go option; and a comfortable and restful sleep with high quality bedding and pillow menu.
