IHG opens first Holiday Inn in Melbourne, Australia
IHG has opened its new hotel under the Holiday Inn brand in Australia, which has undergone an 18-months global transformation. Located in Melbourne's West, Holiday Inn Werribee gives an example of a new stylish look of the brand.
The hotel features 150 rooms, an open lobby, an onsite bar and a restaurant as well as versatile meeting spaces. The hotel occupies the top four floors of 22 Synnot Street, Werribee, and offers views over Werribee and towards Melbourne’s city skyline. A first for the Holiday Inn brand within Australasia, Holiday Inn Werribee presents an open looby concept, based on understanding how people use space at home to give guests the most flexibility, to eat, relax, work, or socialize in one space.
Preston Miskelly, General Manager of Holiday Inn Werribee, said:
“Reliably familiar, yet refreshingly different, Holiday inn Werribee is a comfortable and inviting home away from home. Our open lobby with its floor-to-ceiling windows and amazing views, not only gives our guests a warm and welcoming place to relax, work or socialize, it is also home to our modern restaurant and bar.”
This opening marks the first hotel for the Holiday Inn brand in Australasia with other new-build hotels in the pipeline, such as the opening of Holiday Inn Remarkables Park, Queenstown in October 2021 and Holiday Inn Melbourne Bourke Street Mall in 2022.
