Holiday Inn is a powerful brand internationally and Abu Dhabi is an important market for the Holiday Inn Hotels and Resorts, as the city’s fast-growing prominence as a major business center is increasing. InterContinental Hotels Group, the world’s largest global hotel company, will expand its portfolio in the UAE with the development of a Holiday Inn Hotel in Danet Abu Dhabi. The Holiday Inn Abu Dhabi will embody the established Holiday Inn brand hallmarks by offering guests a great night’s sleep, a hearty breakfast, and friendly, helpful staff. Scheduled to open at the end of 2007, the eight-floor Holiday Inn Abu Dhabi will have over 200 standard and executive rooms and private suites, including a rooftop level with state of the art leisure facilities.
The hotel will be situated 15 minutes from Abu Dhabi International Airport and will be close to major shopping malls to offer guests choices from some of the world’s leading international retail brands. Holiday Inn in Danet Abu Dhabi seeks to attract a greater share of both domestic and international business as well as leisure and meeting travelers. It will be operated by Hospitality Management Services and will complement the group’s existing brands within the emirate, including the InterContinental Abu Dhabi, Crowne Plaza Abu Dhabi, and InterContinental Resort Al Ain. Danet Abu Dhabi is designed to be one of the region’s best-planned communities. The property will include gardens, parks, green boulevards, sophisticated buildings, state-of-the-art communication services, cafes, and leisure facilities. The project will be complete by early 2009
