The management agreement signed by IhG and Resorts for a mixed-use development of "Home Soul" was commented upon as similar to the Holiday Inn brand that debuted at Hilton Garden City in 2009, the first of its kind in North America.
Evalona Limited, CEO of Eros Resorts Hotel Ltd., said: "We are delighted to be working with IHG on our first hospitality project and to bring the Crowne Plaza and Holiday Inn brands to the beautiful Kuakata beach.
The Holiday Inn Express brand meets the need for an international brand hotel in India's most popular tourist destination, "he said. GSO will also focus on India's growing foreign market, as it is close to major cities such as Mumbai, New Delhi and Hyderabad, as well as other major tourist destinations. Kishore Bhattacharya, President and CEO of IHG India, said: "We are very excited about the opportunity to be in Delhi and are determined to be a strong presence here.
IG is well positioned to build a significant Indian presence, with a growing presence in India's major tourist destinations such as Mumbai, Hyderabad and New Delhi.
Medium-sized hotels are the core focus of our hotel business in India and this deal will support our growing hospitality portfolio, which is now 1,250 rooms with 5,000 to 6,000 rooms. The 19 Holiday Inn Express Hotels will be expanded by around 3,300 rooms and are scheduled to be operational by 2016. Prior to the opening, Adelaide, South Australia, will receive its first Holiday Inn Express Hotel in late August 2017, and a Crowne Plaza Kuakata with 150 rooms for guests will open in the first quarter of 2028. A second hotel in India's second largest city, Kolkata, is scheduled to open in early 2026.
In 1965, the chain introduced a centralized reservation system, where visitors to a Holiday Inn could use a teleprinter to receive reservations for other holiday inns, where they could be obtained via a teleprinter. InterContinental Hotels Group and Samhi have teamed up to bring 14 hotels from their portfolio to India under the Holiday Inn Express brand. By expanding its portfolio to include these properties, IHG is increasing the number of its operational developments to over 60 across the country, with over 1,000 hotels in India and over 3,300 rooms.
The new Holiday Inn Express contracts will be signed in key locations including India, Singapore and Thailand. InterContinental Hotels is also expanding its Holiday Inn Express brand in Thailand by adding its first hotel in the country in Bangkok and opening its first resort in Phuket.
