Edinburgh Airport’s new Holiday Inn Express opens for bookings

The new Holiday Inn Express under development at Edinburgh Airport has started taking bookings from guests and travellers looking to explore Scotland.

The development of the 100-bedroom Holiday Inn Express at Edinburgh Airport is progressing and it will commence service in January 2014. UK-based hotel management company, Chardon Management, operates the hotel.

Chardon Management director, Nicola Taylor, said: ‘Catering for both the business and leisure markets, the Holiday Inn Express Edinburgh Airport, is the perfect base for exploring Scotland’s capital city.

‘The smart choice for travellers who need a simple, engaging hotel to rest, recharge and get a little work done – whether you’re on the way to somewhere or with us for a week – Holiday Inn Express hotels provide just the things that you need most and nothing more.’

The new Holiday Inn Express Edinburgh Airport offers on-site parking for long and short stay guests. It also has free Wi-Fi Internet access throughout. Located near the airport terminal building, the hotel is only 5 minutes from the commercial district of The Gyle and Edinburgh Park, and 20 minutes from Edinburgh city centre.

The Holiday Inn Express brand is a mid-priced hotel chain within the IHG group. The brand’s hotels are intended to offer fewer amenities but at a reasonable price and are aimed at the business traveller and short-stays. There are approximately 2,200 properties under the Express brand, all of which have been developed following the brands inception in the USA in 1991.

Along with IHG’s other brands, Holiday Inn Express will be offering free wi-fi Internet connectivity at all of its properties from 2014.
