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.

IHGs 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.
