Officially opened on the 17th August 2015 by the mayor of Middlesbrough, the 138-room Holiday Inn Express Middlesbrough marks the completion of a landmark regeneration project in the city.
£12.4 million was invested developing the formerly vacant Albert Road property by Ashall Projects, assisted by Middlesbrough Council. It took just over 12 months to complete the renovation with Redefine|BDL Hotels taking on the management of the property.
The Cook and Endeavour House building in central Middlesbrough had lain vacant for more than 15 years before the regeneration project to convert it into the Holiday Inn Express began last year.
Mark Ashall, director of Ashall Projects, said: “We are very pleased to complete this important regeneration project on time and within budget. We are very grateful for the contribution of the professional team, the contractor Bowmer and Kirkland and the Council in achieving this result and are confident that the new hotel will go from strength to strength.”
Facilities at the Holiday Inn Express Middlesbrough includes two bars, two meeting rooms and a variety of guest rooms.
