    £5.5 million transformation for Edinburgh city centre

    Holiday Inn Express Edinburgh City Centre to add 25 new rooms as part of major refurbishment…

    Managed by the UK’s leading independent hotel management company, RBH, the Holiday Inn Express Edinburgh City Centre is about to undergo a £5.5 million refurbishment.

    The hotel’s existing 161 bedrooms have already been refurbished to ensure today’s smart travellers enjoy all of the amenities they are used to.

    And the Edinburgh property has also received extensive remodelling to its lobby and public areas, with over £350,000 spent upgrading its facilities to Holiday Inn Express’ new Generation 4 standards.

    The refurbishment programme does not stop there, with an extension featuring a further 25 brand new bedrooms, also following the Generation 4 concept, set to be added to the property by mid-July this year – taking the total rooms available to 186

    The substantial investment will see the new rooms feature large beds with padded, noise reducing headboards, as well as flexible work and rest corners where traditional desks are replaced with comfortable, ergonomically designed multi-use tables and chairs that can be easily moved around the room.

    “The transformation of Holiday Inn Express Edinburgh City Centre really gives us an edge when it comes to providing excellent city centre accommodation, and is proving to be a very exciting time for the hotel,” said Stephen Harron, Divisional Director for RBH. “The bedrooms and public areas have been completely revamped, along with the installation of air conditioning and high speed IHG connect complimentary WIFI throughout the building, ensuring we can offer the best in guest experience, whether staying in Edinburgh for business or leisure.”

    Edinburgh is currently the UK’s most desired destination for hotel investment and development, and last year reported higher room occupancy rate – at 83 per cent – than anywhere else in Europe.
