IHG Hotels & Resorts introduced its Brand Holiday Inn Express in Japan last December, with the opening of Holiday Inn Express Osaka City Centre Midosuji. IHG has worked towards bringing this iconic brand to Japan for several years, but has taken its time and has waited until it had the perfect asset, an AAA location, and the ideal partner with whom to launch.

Abhijay Sandilya, Managing Director - Japan, IHG Hotels & Resorts and CEO IHG ANA Hotels Group Japan, said:

“We are honored to launch Holiday Inn Express in Japan in partnership with Baring Private Equity Asia (BPEA), one of the largest independent private equity firms in Asia. We have been committed for some time to bringing this world-class brand to Japan when the time is right and now, with a great partner in BPEA, an amazing asset, and the world poised to reopen, we are thrilled to introduce Holiday Inn Express to the Japanese market.

Holiday Inn Express Osaka City Centre Midosuji features 306 rooms with a fresh, bold, and modern design. The hotel is located in the heart of Osaka on its most famous Boulevard, Midosuji, just a minutes’ walk from the world-famous Shinsaibashi retail & Namba entertainment districts, as well as Osaka’s main Yodoyabashi financial distric. The hotel will embrace the brand’s hallmark of simple, smart travel. Other features it boasts include high-speed WiFi, high-quality bedding, a choice of pillows, and a cooked buffet breakfast and coffee, or takeout.
