    IHG (InterContinental Hotels Group) has recently announced the opening of the Holiday Inn Bogota-Airport in Bogota, Colombia. It is IHG’s sixth property in the country, across four brands – InterContinental® Hotels & Resorts, Crowne Plaza® Hotels & Resorts, Holiday Inn® Hotels and Resorts and Holiday Inn Express®. The new-build, eight-story Holiday Inn Bogota-Airport features 191 rooms and is located within ten minutes of El Dorado International Airport. Situated within the vibrant neighborhood of El Salitre, one of Bogota’s most important and modern business districts, the property is part of a mixed-use complex called Centro Empresarial Arrecife (Arrecife Corporate Center) and near the Corferias Convention Center, the United States Embassy, Bogota’s main industrial park and downtown Bogota. The Holiday Inn Bogota-Airport, located at Avenida Calle 26 #69-D-91 in Bogota, is owned by Alianza Fiduciaria S.A., under a franchise agreement with a company in the InterContinental Hotels Group. The hotel will be operated by METRO hotels on behalf of Alianza Fiduciaria S.A.

    The Holiday Inn Bogota-Airport features fresh and stylish décor and an array of amenities, including eight elegantly designed meeting rooms, totaling 4,842 square feet (450 square meters) and with a 400-person capacity. The hotel also boasts a 24-hour gym, full-service restaurant and a business center. Complimentary wireless high speed Internet access is also available throughout the hotel.

    With a population of more than 44 million, improved security and a dynamic economy, Colombia has emerged as a key strategic market for Latin America. Bogotá, the capital, is the largest metropolitan city in the country and the main economic center of Colombia. A vibrant city, Bogota is not only recognized as a center in the region for the development of the arts but for its beautiful cathedrals, major universities, grand theaters and an array of entertainment and nightlife venues.

    IHG has five hotels in Colombia: two InterContinental Hotels, one Crowne Plaza, and two Holiday Inn Express properties. Two IHG-branded properties are currently under development. The Holiday Inn Cartagena Morros is scheduled to open next month (August 2011) and the InterContinental Cartagena is slated to open in 2013. The Holiday Inn Bogota-Airport is the first Holiday Inn hotel in the country.
