IHG ANA Hotels Group Japan, the joint venture between InterContinental Hotels Group and All Nippon Airways, yesterday announced the opening of ANA Holiday Inn Sendai. ANA Holiday Inn Sendai is the first co-branded hotel between Holiday Inn, one of the world’s most recognised hotel brands, and ANA Hotels, a strong brand within the Japanese hotel industry. This co-brand brings together the elements of the new Holiday Inn brand, which is currently undergoing the largest rebranding exercise in hospitality history, with the reputation for service excellence established by ANA Hotels.
The 165-room ANA Holiday Inn Sendai is situated close to the east entrance of the Sendai train station. It is both a convenient location for business travellers as well as an ideal starting point for leisure seekers looking to visit cultural and historical sites in the city of Sendai, the gateway to the Tohoku region.
Guests can expect the new look-and-feel, service standards and quality facilities reflective of the new Holiday Inn brand. The global relaunch of Holiday Inn focuses on the things research shows matter most to guests – a modern, contemporary hotel with efficient, friendly service and a great night’s sleep.
In conjunction with ANA Holiday Inn Sendai’s opening, the ANA Holiday Inn Sendai’s all-day dining restaurant, Chef Table, has been also been refreshed. Additionally, the hotel employees have all received training that combines the best of the new Holiday Inn service standards as well as the detail-oriented service ANA hotels are known for.
