The new Holiday Inn Express Surabaya CenterPlaza is located in the centre of Indonesia’s second largest city, and offers 236 queen or twin rooms.
It becomes the sixth Holiday Inn Express to open in Indonesia since the brand launched in the country in November 2013.
“Since we launched the brand in Indonesia a year ago, we’ve opened an average of one Holiday Inn Express hotel in Indonesia every two months,” said Alan Watts, IHG’s chief operating officer for Asia, Middle East and Africa (AMEA).
“Savvy and value-conscious travellers can now look forward to the Holiday Inn Express experience in some of Indonesia’s best and most convenient locations across Jakarta, Bali, Semarang and now Surabaya.
“Indonesia is full of opportunities and we look forward to opening 11 more Holiday Inn Express hotels in the country over the next few years,” he added.
Holiday Inn Express Surabaya CenterPlaza will offer as series of convenient, guest-friendly amenities, such as free breakfast and Wi-Fi. There is also a self-service business centre, laundry room and 24-hour fitness room.
As well as being the sixth Holiday Inn Express in Indonesia, the Surabaya hotel marks the brand’s 10th hotel in Southeast Asia.
