IHG Hotels & Resorts celebrated last week the opening of a new Holiday Inn property in South Philadelphia following a conversion and renovation. Holiday Inn Philadelphia Airport – Stadium Area is located minutes from Philadelphia International Airport and within walking distance of the city’s primary sports and entertainment facilities complex (which includes Lincoln Financial Field, Citizens Bank Park and Wells Fargo Center).
A conversion of a round, high-rise building that stands tall among the South Philadelphia skyline, Holiday Inn Philadelphia Airport – Stadium Area provides a range of spaces and features enabling those traveling for business or fun to lounge, work, dine and explore, according to a press release. The hotel has 206 rooms with an onsite business center and more than 10,000 square feet of meeting space available to support productive workdays and meetings.
“As a city rooted in history and tradition, Philadelphia is the perfect place for the latest extension of the Holiday Inn brand that is among the most recognized and trusted in the world,” Kevin Schramm, SVP of Development, Mainstream – U.S. and Canada, IHG Hotels & Resorts, said. “The hotel’s convenient location to the airport and notable landmarks and attractions makes it a coveted destination for guests looking to explore Philadelphia, and we are thrilled to reintroduce the Holiday Inn experience to a new generation of travelers.”
IHG collaborated with owner and manager Watermark Hospitality Group for the conversion, renovation and reopening of Holiday Inn Philadelphia Airport – Stadium Area. The New Jersey-based, family-owned hotelier maintains a portfolio of 15 hotels throughout the mid-Atlantic and northeast U.S., with the new Philadelphia property its first IHG-branded offering.
The hotel joins a roster of four other open IHG-branded properties within Philadelphia city-proper, along with two Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants (Hotel Monaco and Hotel Palomar) and two Holiday Inn Express (Penn’s Landing and Midtown) offerings.
