InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG) has announced the opening of the first Holiday Inn Express hotel in the city of Jakarta, Indonesia. The brand new 101-room Holiday Inn Express Jakarta Thamrin is the first Holiday Inn Express hotel to open in the region this year and is situated in the heart of Jakarta’s Central Business District (CBD).
The opening of the property in Jakarta also marks the second Holiday Inn Express to open in Indonesia in the last three months. With 12 more Holiday Inn Express hotels in the pipeline, Indonesia is being eyed as an important growth market for IHG.
Holiday Inn Express Jakarta Thamrin is an hour away from Soekarno Hatta International Airport. The hotel’s location at Thamrin makes it accessible to major multinational business headquarters, banks, embassies and government offices. Tourists can also take a walk along Thamrin’s tourist attractions.
Other amenities offered by the property include: free Wi-Fi available in guest rooms and throughout the hotel; free Express Start breakfast or a Grab & Go option; quality bedding and a choice of firm or soft pillows; power showers with a three-function massage showerhead and fluffy towels; and self-service business center and laundry room.
Holiday Inn Express currently has more than 2,235 hotels (210,793 rooms) globally. The first property opened in 1991.
Holiday Inn Express Thamrin is the fifth Holiday Inn Express hotel in South East Asia, and the second in Indonesia. The hotel opening follows the launch of Holiday Inn Express hotels in Semarang, Bangkok, Phuket and Singapore.
In the coming months, Indonesia will welcome three more Holiday Inn Express hotels: Holiday Inn Express Bali Kuta Square, Holiday Inn Express Bali Raya Kuta and Holiday Inn Express Jakarta Pluit Citygate.
Over the next few years, the brand will continue to grow in South East Asia with 19 more Holiday Inn Express hotels in the development pipeline.
