InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG) has opened the first ever Holiday Inn Express in Singapore, located in the heart of the country’s vibrant shopping district and entertainment hub, Orchard Road. Holiday Inn Express Singapore Orchard Road is the first of two Holiday Inn Express hotels planned for Singapore during the brand’s rapid expansion across South East Asia.

The hotel is celebrating its opening with a day of giveaways, starting with a free #GrabandGo breakfast outside the hotel, as well as outside Orchard and Somerset MRT Stations on 24 July 2013 from 7.30am on a first-come-first-served basis. In the evening, the hotel is holding its own Great Singapore Express Sale, a one hour flash sale event from 6pm to 7pm. During this hour, the first 100 guests who come down to the hotel will be able to buy a room for a one-off price of SGD 19.99++. (Terms & Conditions apply)

The 221-room hotel is within easy walking distance of popular shopping malls, such as ION Orchard and Ngee Ann City, as well as prime medical centres, Mount Elizabeth Hospital and Paragon Medical Centre. The hotel offers convenient access to great restaurants, bars and entertainment options. Somerset and Orchard MRT Stations are just a stone’s throw away, providing easy access to the CBD and the rest of Singapore.

“Savvy travellers are constantly seeking a high quality experience that provides all the essentials they need to be self-reliant and make the most of their trip. We are very excited to be the first Holiday Inn Express hotel in Singapore where guests can expect a fuss-free and refreshing stay with guaranteed comfort and convenience at a reasonable price,” said Mark Winterton, Area General Manager, Holiday Inn Express Singapore and Malaysia.

“Globally, Holiday Inn Express is one of the largest and fastest growing brands in the industry and, in South East Asia, the brand has a particularly bright future ahead. We are confident that Holiday Inn Express will do well in Singapore, whether guests are here for a quick stopover or longer trip, for business or for leisure.” said Clarence Tan, Chief Operating Officer South East Asia and Resorts, IHG.

Holiday Inn Express Singapore Orchard Road is at 20 Bideford Road. For those who don’t take part in the flash sale offer, the hotel is offering guests a special opening rate from SGD 198++ per night, for stays until 30 November.

Holiday Inn Express Singapore Orchard Road is the third Holiday Inn Express hotel in South East Asia, joining two sister hotels in Thailand – Holiday Inn Express Phuket Patong Beach Central and Holiday Inn Express Bangkok Siam. In Singapore, the hotel will be joined by Holiday Inn Express Singapore Clarke Quay in Q1 2014. Over the next five years 17 hotels are scheduled to open in South East Asia across Thailand (2), Indonesia (12), Singapore (1) and Malaysia (2).
