IHG debuts in Agra with signing of Holiday Inn Agra MG Road

InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG), has signed a management agreement with Hotel Marina Agra for Holiday Inn Agra MG Road. The 150-room hotel is expected to be rebranded and operational in 2018. The signing marks the company’s debut in Agra and also completes IHG’s presence in the Delhi-Jaipur-Agra Golden Triangle tourist circuit.

Holiday Inn Agra MG Road is a 15-minutes drive from popular UNESCO World Heritage sites such as Agra Fort and Taj Mahal, both key tourist attractions of the city. On opening, the hotel will offer views of the iconic monument, Taj Mahal from the upper floors. Situated on MG Road, the hotel is in close proximity to the business district and key government offices.

With well-designed, sizeable banqueting space, Holiday Inn Agra MG Road will be well placed to meet the growing business from the MICE segment, especially spurred by the increasing demand from the connecting cities such as Delhi and Jaipur. The hotel will feature an all-day dining, a speciality cuisine restaurant and a bar, providing guests an array of F&B options to choose from. Additionally, Holiday Inn Agra MG Road will feature leisure facilities such as an outdoor pool and gymnasium for guests.
 
Commenting on the announcement, Sudeep Jain, Vice President, Development, South West Asia, IHG, said, “We are delighted to partner with Hotel Agra Marina to introduce our first hotel in Agra, under the Holiday Inn banner. Agra has been an important destination on the tourism map of India, and we are excited to be setting foot in this growing market. With excellent location, facilities and best in class amenities, we are confident the hotel will be a great choice for varied guest profiles with diverse requirements. The Holiday Inn brand family is our growth driver in India, and this signing underscores our commitment to further strengthen our position in the midscale hotel segment.”
 
Shashank Bhagat, Managing Partner, Hotel Marina, said, “We are delighted to partner with a strong, global player such as IHG to bring the well-recognized Holiday Inn brand to the city of Agra. IHG has an excellent track record, globally and in India, and we are assured that the hotel will benefit from the company’s robust distribution systems, top revenue management tools and best in class loyalty program. We are confident that Holiday Inn Agra MG Road will be well-received by travellers when we open our doors in 2018.”
