IHG Hotels & Resorts signed an agreement with LRO Hospitality to add a 306-key Holiday Inn Express to the group’s portfolio in Dresden, showcasing the brand’s suitability to convert and rebrand existing hotels.

The hotel is expected to re-open as part of the IHG family within the next 4-6 months and will undergo full refurbishment to be rebranded to Holiday Inn Express Dresden by the summer of 2024. The 10-floor property will include a lobby with breakfast area, a gym, and a flexible co-working/shared office space located on the first floor.

The conversion signing further bolsters the brand’s strength in Germany and IHG’s portfolio in Dresden. The group already operated three hotels in Dresden: Holiday Inn Dresden – Am Zwinger (144 keys), Holiday Inn Dresden – City South (89 keys) and Hotel Indigo Dresden – Wettiner Platz (132 keys).

Building on a long-standing relationship with LRO Hospitality, IHG welcomes the opportunity to expand this partnership further and support the company’s entry into the German market. Currently, LRP Hospitality is mainly present on the UK market.

Once open, Holiday Inn Express will be operated by Atlas Hotels, an affiliate of L+R Hotels. Atlas Hotels already operates some 60 select service hotels in the UK, mostly flagged under the “Holiday Inn Express” brand.

Germany continues to be a key market for IHG, and we are delighted to be partnering with LRO Hospitality on bolstering our choice of hotels in the city of Dresden. This particular signing for Holiday Inn Express underscores the suitability of our brands for conversions of existing hotels.

Willemijn Geels, Vice President Development Europe at IHG Hotels & Resorts

LRO Hospitality focuses on hotels that offer significant recovery value to achieve attractive returns as the hotel sector returns to market stability. Holiday Inn Express Dresden is our first signing with IHG in Germany and we cannot wait to get started. We are confident that IHG is the right partner to achieve the kind of returns we are planning for.
