£5.5MILLION TRANSFORMATION FOR EDINBURGH CITY CENTRE HOTEL
Wednesday, 10 April 2019
Guests staying at the Holiday Inn Express Edinburgh City Centre are set to enjoy the next generation in hotel experience as the venue unveils a landmark revamp.
The hotel, which is managed by the UK’s leading independent hotel management company, RBH, is benefitting from a £5.5million transformation.
The hotel’s existing 161 bedrooms have already been refurbished to ensure today’s smart travellers enjoy all of the amenities they are used to.
And the Edinburgh property has also received extensive remodelling to its lobby and public areas, with over £350,000 spent upgrading its facilities.
The refurbishment programme does not stop there, with an extension featuring a further 25 brand new bedrooms set to be added to the property by mid-July this year – taking the total rooms available to 186.
The substantial investment will see the new rooms feature large beds with padded, noise reducing headboards, as well as flexible work and rest corners where traditional desks are replaced with comfortable, ergonomically designed multi-use tables and chairs that can be easily moved around the room.
Stephen Harron, Divisional Director for RBH, said: “The transformation of Holiday Inn Express Edinburgh City Centre really gives us an edge when it comes to providing excellent city centre accommodation, and is proving to be a very exciting time for the hotel.
“The bedrooms and public areas have been completely revamped, along with the installation of air conditioning and high speed IHG connect complimentary WIFI throughout the building, ensuring we can offer the best in guest experience, whether staying in Edinburgh for business or leisure.”
