“IHG properties have thrived in Brazil since 1946, and it is exciting to have another great opportunity to open a Holiday Inn Express hotel in a new city,” said Alvaro Diago, COO, Latin America and Caribbean, IHG. “Our strong commitment to work with our Brazilian partners has resulted in numerous, successful hotels across the breadth of our portfolio in growing markets showing a need for branded, quality lodging.”

The Holiday Inn Express ® Rio Branco hotel is located in the city’s downtown area with numerous businesses and attractions nearby. The nine-story hotel boasts four meeting rooms, an outdoor pool and bar. Guests can choose between well-appointed spacious guest rooms and suites, all with a clean contemporary design. Additional amenities include a 24-hour business center and fitness center. The new hotel is designed with the Holiday Inn brand family’s $1 billion global brand relaunch in mind; the largest project of its kind in hospitality history. The relaunch continues to drive increased quality and consistency across the global portfolio. The hotel features a contemporary image with emphasis on arrival and welcome services, guestroom and guest bath comfort and a redesigned logo and signage.

"It is very exciting to expand the Holiday Inn Express brand in new markets in Brazil, not only because we have a long and successful history here, but because the brand is ideal for meeting the needs of the country’s growing business and leisure travel markets - both local and international,” said Gerardo Murray, vice president, Distribution Commercial Marketing, Mexico, Latin America and Caribbean, IHG.
