InterContinental Hotels Group has signed its
first hotel in Algeria, the Holiday Inn Algiers-Cheraga Tower.
The 243-room hotel will be developed by Ramdane Group and managed by IHG.
IHG’s Director of Development, France and
North Africa, Brice Marguet said that the Holiday Inn would fill a
significant gap in the market as there were no internationally
branded midscale hotels in Algiers.
At 75m high, the 25-storey hotel will become one
of the tallest buildings in Algiers. The hotel will feature 500sqm
of meeting space and a restaurant with 145 covers. Guests will
have access to a spa with indoor swimming pool and fitness
facilities, as well as an outdoor swimming pool.
Holiday Inn Algiers-Cheraga Tower will be
located to the west of the city, half an hour from the Algiers
International Airport Houari Boumediene, which receives direct
flights from major European cities including London, Paris, Milan,
Frankfurt and Istanbul.
Cheraga is a fast-growing
commercial hub, undergoing considerable urban and economic
development and is well connected to the city via major highways.
International businesses and embassies are nearby.
The hotel is
part of a larger development in the area being developed by Modern
Towers, a subsidiary of Ramdane Group, which includes office buildings and residential blocks.
IHG has 709 Holiday Inn and Holiday
Inn Express hotels (98, 390 rooms), in the pipeline globally.
