IHG signs new Holiday Inn for Gdansk, Poland

Right on the heels of Hilton expanding its Hampton brand in Poland, InterContinental Hotels Group has signed a deal to open the Holiday Inn Gdansk City Centre. The property will operate under a management agreement with real estate developers UBM Development AG and is set to open in 2019. 

Located in the city center of Gdansk, in front the Gdansk Marina, the 236-roomed new-build property is within walking distance of the main train station and is a 25-minute drive from Gdansk Lech Wałęsa International Airport.

“Poland is fast becoming a hub for business and leisure travel due to its economic growth in the last few years," Miguel Martins, director development Poland for IHG, said in a statement. "We always look to put the right brands in the areas in which guests want them.”
