Holiday Inn Express zips into Clarke Quay

INTERCONTINENTAL Hotels Group (IHG) has opened the 442-room Holiday Inn Express Singapore Clarke Quay in partnership with RB Capital Hotels, the hotel arm of RB Capital Group.

The hotel is located within Singapore’s vibrant entertainment district of Clarke Quay, 20 minutes from Singapore Changi Airport and close to the country’s major museums.

Guests can expect free Wi-Fi, breakfast or a grab-and-go option, a self-service business centre and laundry room, a 24-hour fitness room and a rooftop swimming pool.

The opening of Holiday Inn Express Singapore Clarke Quay last month follows the launch of Holiday Inn Express in Orchard Road last July (TTG Asia e-Daily, July 17, 2013) and Semarang (TTG Asia e-Daily, November 11, 2013), Jakarta (TTG Asia e-Daily, January 21, 2014) and Bali (TTG Asia e-Daily, January 27, 2014).

Clarence Tan, COO, South East Asia & Resorts, IHG, said: “Holiday Inn Express is one of the fastest growing hotel brands in the world and this is our second Holiday Inn Express hotel to open in Singapore in under a year. In the last eight months alone, the brand debuted in both Indonesia and Singapore and across the two countries, we opened five Holiday Inn Express hotels in that time.

“We know that there is a demand for select-service hotel brands in the region and Holiday Inn Express is here to meet that. With 19 Holiday Inn Express hotels due to open across South East Asia alone over the next five years, we’re confident this is just the beginning of a successful growth period for the brand.”

Holiday Inn Express Singapore Clarke Quay has rolled out a special opening rate from S$180++ per night, including free Wi-Fi access and breakfast for two, for stays from now until July 31.
