InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG) has announced the opening of its first property in Puebla, Mexico.
The Crowne Plaza Puebla hotel is a $17 million project for Cosorcio Hotelero GR5, S.A. de C.V. – the consortium under which the hotel will be owned and managed.
This is the first property to open in Mexico under the Crowne Plaza Accelerate, a press release said, and is the first property in the country to feature WorkLife guestrooms, designed to offer comfort, connectivity and flexibility for “the modern business traveler.”
All 155 WorkLife guestrooms and suites offer queen- and king-sized beds, 50-inch flat screen televisions, a sitting area with a lounge chair and an in-room coffee machine with complimentary coffee with most rooms rendering panoramic views of the city. In addition, the hotel’s 21 suites are further equipped with full kitchens and one executive suite with a separate meeting area.
The hotel property consists of a heated indoor swimming pool, fitness center, business center, complimentary parking and meeting rooms with a capacity of up to 300 people and three executive boardrooms for up to 12 people each. At the Moncayo, the hotel’s on-site restaurant, guests can indulge in Mexican cuisine with an international twist.
Gerardo Murray, IHG’s regional vice president of brand and marketing for Mexico, Latin America and the Caribbean, said in the release that the brand is “committed to offering guests the most innovative hospitality experience” and that the Crowne Plaza Puebla is a “prime example of the new concepts in design, service and connectivity” that the brand will now feature. He added that this property represents the continued growth for Crowne Plaza throughout Latin America.
