IHG Hotels & Resorts will continue its expansion in Victoria with the signing of the Holiday Inn Dandenong with hotel owners, the Pelligra Group.
This will be IHG’s fifth hotel with the Pelligra Group, joining Holiday Inn Melbourne Airport, the newly opened Holiday Inn Werribee, and upcoming Holiday Inn Melbourne Richmond and Crowne Plaza Melbourne Carlton.
Formerly the Ramada Encore by Wyndham Dandenong, the hotel will undergo a A$10 million (US$7.3 million) refurbishment, and open as a Holiday Inn in April 2022. This will include all 108 guestrooms receiving a major refurbishment plus an additional 18 new rooms added. The lobby will also be transformed to incorporate Holiday Inn’s Open Lobby concept.
Holiday Inn Dandenong will join the 42 open or pipeline Holiday Inn brand family hotels in Australasia and the Pacific.
