InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG) and Operadora ALRO announced the opening of the 143-room Holiday Inn® Mexico Buenavista hotel in Mexico City to expand IHG’s family hotels in Mexico.
“This is IHG’s fifth opening in Mexico City this year, demonstrating the confidence that investors and franchisees have in our brand family,” said Gerardo Murray, vice president, Marketing Strategic Services, Mexico, Latin America and Caribbean, IHG. “The convenient location of this newly renovated property makes it an excellent choice for travellers who visit Mexico City for business or leisure.”
The scale and diversity of the IHG family of brands means that our hotels can meet our guests’ needs whatever the occasion. The modern and avant-garde design was created by architects Enrique Belmont and Luis Enrique Becerra, also responsible for construction. The hotel is located in Mariano Azuela 12, just a short distance from The Chopo Museum and the Palace of Fine Arts in downtown Mexico City and opens following $9 million in renovations by the ownership. Further renovation plans include the addition of a new building adjacent to the hotel featuring two meeting rooms that can accommodate up to 300 people each. The new building is slated to open before mid-2014.
Holiday Inn hotels feature a residential atmosphere that is warm, trend forward and comfortable. Guest beds are made using crisp, white bedding with pillows that come in two comfort levels: “soft” and “firm.” The residential design includes business-focused necessities such as an ergonomic workstation and data ports with the bathrooms including a multifunctional showerhead, as well as a signature shower curtain with curved rod, and Bath and Body Works White Citrus bath products. Additionally, each room has standard Holiday Inn guestroom accommodations – comfortable double, queen or king-sized beds, a sitting area with a lounge chair, hairdryer, micro fridge, coffee maker, iron and ironing board. The hotel is equipped with complimentary wireless internet access, 32” flat screen television and a radio-alarm clock with support for audio. Other amenities include a restaurant with a terrace featuring international and Mexican specialty cuisine and a lobby bar. Room Service Right … On Time™, at all Holiday Inn hotels, ensures that guests’ room service orders are accurate and delivered on time, every time. The fifth floor is exclusively reserved for IHG® Rewards Club members and will offer direct access to the swimming pool and fitness centre.
The Holiday Inn Mexico Buenavista hotel has been designed with the Holiday Inn brand family’s $1 billion global brand relaunch in mind, the largest of its kind in hospitality history. The relaunch continues to drive increased quality and consistency across the global portfolio. The new hotel will feature a contemporary image with emphasis on arrival and welcome services, guestroom and guest bath comfort and a redesigned logo and signage.
The hotel owned and managed by Operadora ALRO, is franchised by an affiliate IHG. Holiday Inn hotels participate in IHG’s hotel rewards program, IHG® Rewards Club. The industry’s first, largest and fastest-growing guest loyalty program with over 74 million members is free and guests can enrol at IHGRewardsClub.com, by calling 01-800-000-0404 or by inquiring at any of IHG’s more than 4,600 hotels worldwide.
