InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG) announces the opening of the new 99-room Holiday Inn Express Fort St. John hotel.
Located just off the Alaska Highway in the heart of Fort St. John, the hotel is in close proximity to a variety of recreational facilities and activities including the Pomeroy Sports Centre, which houses two-NHL sized ice rinks and a speed skating oval, Lake Point Golf & Country Club and Charlie Lake Provincial Park.
“Holiday Inn Express hotels are designed to be the smart choice for value-conscious business and leisure travelers,” said Heather Balsley, senior vice president, Americas Holiday Inn® Brand Family, IHG. “With more than 2,200 properties worldwide and 450 more in the pipeline, the Holiday Inn Express brand portfolio continues to provide our guests with an enhanced-stay experience at a great value.”
The Holiday Inn Express brand is one of the largest and fastest growing hotel brands in the industry, and in order to meet the ever-changing needs of its guest, IHG invested in the $1 billion Holiday Inn global brand relaunch, the largest in hospitality history. The relaunch continues to drive increased quality and consistency across the global portfolio, and new hotels feature a contemporary image with emphasis on arrival and welcome services, guestroom and guest bath comfort and a redesigned logo and signage.
Located at 9504 Alaska Road, the newest addition to IHG’s portfolio in British Columbia features an open concept design and casual atmosphere packed with an array of on-site amenities such as an indoor pool, waterslide, hot tub, fully equipped fitness center, around 1,000 square feet of flexible meeting space and a 24-hour business center.
“We are pleased to be a part of the Holiday Inn Express brand portfolio and to be able to offer travelers an outstanding guest experience at a great value in a convenient location,” said Tannis Frantik, general manager. “We believe this brand fits the needs of our guests and that’s why a significant investment was made to build this new property.”
