Holiday Inn Express coming to Christchurch

27 July 2016

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.

Holiday Inn Express is a high quality select service brand providing guests with ‘everything they need and nothing they don’t’. 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.

IHG currently has 5 hotels operating under three brands in New Zealand: InterContinental, Crowne Plaza and Holiday Inn, with Holiday Inn Express Christchurch city centre marking the launch of the fourth brand in the country.
