MONTREAL — InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG) is increasing Holiday Inn’s presence in Montreal, plotting the opening of its 12th unit in the greater Montreal area in 2017.
The Holiday Inn Hotel & Suites Montreal Centre-Ville West hotel, based in Montreal’s business district, is franchised by an affiliate of IHG and will be managed by RIMAP Hospitality Services. “The Holiday Inn brand has been highly successful in Canada since it was first introduced to the region 54 years ago. Growth in Canada is a priority for IHG, and we are very pleased to add a hotel to our portfolio in a high profile location like downtown Montreal,” said Stuart Laurie, regional director, Midscale Franchise-Canada, IHG.
The 40-storey property will feature 225 guestrooms and amenities such as a fitness centre, meeting space, swimming pool and free Wi-Fi. It will also be home to a full-service restaurant, The Blue Line Bistro-Bar, which will serve casual options for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The property is set to open in the spring of 2017.a
