Intercontinental Hotels Group (IHG) has announced the signing of Holiday Inn London Kensington.
The 694-room franchised hotel will be rebranded from the independent Kensington Close property, one of the largest hotels in London, and is due to open as a Holiday Inn in December 2016.
Holiday Inn London Kensington will operate under a franchise agreement with Kensington Close Hotel Limited.
Central to the hotel’s refurbishment will be the development of the Holiday Inn ‘Open Lobby’.
The hotel will feature twelve meeting rooms, the largest of which can hold 230 delegates and health club and spa which includes an 18 metre swimming pool.
IHG director of development UK and Ireland Philip Lassman said: “IHG is delighted to be partnering with Kensington Close Hotel Limited, owners of this landmark hotel.
“I am delighted that they have chosen IHG as their first franchise partner. Holiday Inn is one of the most iconic hotel brands in the world and the Open Lobby is going to create the perfect space for Kensington visitors and residents to come together.”
