Holiday Inn's new record

The largest Holiday Inn Express property in the Americas region arrived last week with the opening by the InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG) of the 44-storey, 596-room Holiday Inn Express Waikiki.

The newcomer is three blocks from Waikiki Beach, two blocks from the Luxury Row shopping area and four blocks from the Hawaii Convention Centre, which the company says makes it well-suited for both business and leisure travellers.

The hotel features the brand’s newest design features, including modern colours and furnishings, ample access to outlets and charging ports and more community workspaces for guests preferring to work outside their rooms.

The property also offers 4,700sq ft flexible meeting and conference space with nearly 1,500sq ft of outdoor seating, and a fifth-floor Sky Deck for relaxation or to play games like giant chess, nine-hole mini golf and more.

There is also a video game room, shuffleboard, foosball (table football) and ping pong and the hotel also has an outdoor pool, sun deck and cabanas as well as a 24hr fitness centre.

IHG vice-president Jennifer Gribble said: “Holiday Inn Express is the largest hotel brand in the world in its segment, and we’re excited to add the biggest one in the Americas and another property to the Hawaiian islands.”
