Holiday Inn and Holdiay Inn Express as Hotel Service Provider for Olympic 2012
The Holiday Inn brand of hotels will provide expertise and advice on the planning and operating of the Olympic Village. Additional Holiday Inn resources will work with London Organising Committee of the Olympic Games and Paralympic Games during the lead up to the games. Accommodation and meeting rooms will be provided throughout the build and planning period.
London 2012 Chairman Lord Sebastian Coe commented: “Providing a smooth customer experience for athletes, spectators and dignitaries throughout their time at the Games can be a key challenge for any Organising Committee. For us to have Holiday Inn join our family provides us with another great pool of knowledge and skills to ensure that all of those attending the Games, whether from within the UK or from abroad, as competitors or spectators, will have an enjoyable and memorable experience. The global expertise of Holiday Inn in welcoming visitors and meeting customer needs will be vital between now and 2012.”
Andy Cosslett, CEO, IHG said: “With the £600 million relaunch of Holiday Inn well underway, being selected to welcome guests from LOCOG and its partner organisations to our hotels is perfect timing. Just like the world class sportsmen and women who will stay in the Olympic Village, we’ll bring our own world class team to Stratford to make life as easy as possible for the athletes so they focus on the task in hand – competing and winning medals.”
