InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG) is opening of a new Holiday Inn Expres® & Suites hotel in Tremblant just in time for the 2015 winter ski season.
Recently undergoing a $3.2 million investment by the ownership, this property is located in the heart of the Tremblant Pedestrian Village, conveniently accessible to numerous ski lifts, restaurants and shops. With the opening of the Holiday Inn Express & Suites Tremblant hotel, IHG has 14 hotels in Quebec Province with two more properties in the pipeline.
Only a 90-minute drive from Montreal, the four-story, 141-room hotel includes a seasonal outdoor swimming pool, outdoor whirlpool bath (open year round), fitness room, sauna and complimentary high-speed Internet access. Business travellers can take advantage of the Tremblant Convention Centre in the heart of the pedestrian village, located only 100 meters away from the hotel.
“IHG has a strong Holiday Inn Express portfolio in Canada, with nearly 90 hotels open and another 18 in the pipeline,” said Heather Balsley, senior vice president, Americas Core Brands & Brand Operations, IHG. “We are pleased to continue the growth of the Holiday Inn Express brand in unique markets like Tremblant, which draws business and leisure visitors during all months of the year.”

The relaunch continues to drive increased quality and consistency across the global portfolio, and new hotels feature a contemporary image with emphasis on arrival and welcome services, guestroom and guest bath comfort and a redesigned logo and signage.
