IHG will open Poland's first Staybridge Suites in Warsaw

InterContinental Hotels Group has signed a franchise agreement to open the first Staybridge Suites in Poland and the brand’s eighth property in Europe. 

Due to open in late 2019, the 190-guestroom new-build Staybridge Suites Warsaw Ursynów will operate under a franchise agreement with WIK Capital and will be located in Ursynów, Warsaw’s third-largest district.

“We are excited to be bringing Poland’s first Staybridge Suites to Warsaw,” Miguel Martins, director, development Poland for IHG, said in a statement. “As the financial hub of Poland, Warsaw is the perfect location for the brand. Staybridge Suites has more than doubled its presence in the last ten years globally and as Warsaw becomes a tourism and business hub within Eastern Europe, it makes perfect sense to develop Poland’s first Staybridge Suites here.”
