Taiwan gets Crowne Plaza

CROWNE PLAZA, the IHG five-star hotel brand, is to open its first Taiwan property by the end of 2009.  Called E-Da World, located in Kaohsiung County, it is the biggest mass development project in the former Formosa.  The development includes hotels, shopping malls, a theme park, a university and various real estate areas. The property will have full service facilities with five restaurants, two ballrooms and ten function rooms.  IHG's current Taiwan portfolio includes Holiday Inn East Taipei, Holiday Inn Express Taoyuan and Holiday Inn Express Taichung Park.  In what it calls Greater China IHG currently operates 117 hotels open and more than 100 in the pipeline.  It has recently surpassed the United Kingdom to become IHG's second largest market in the world by number of rooms. www.crowneplaza.com
