InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG®), the nation’s premier hotel company with 175 properties from coast-to-coast, announces the signing of a third hotel with the ownership group Le Groupe Robin.
The Holiday Inn Express® & Suites Trois-Rivières hotel will be a 111-room, eco-friendly LEED®-certified property. It will include 79 standard rooms and 32 suites – including eight business suites with private meeting space for up to six people. The hotel is equipped with the latest energy and cost savings technologies such as a large solar wall that will be used to produce energy and power all exterior signage year-round.
Le Groupe Robin will incorporate the city’s rich history into the design and culture of the property. The hotel will feature the Holiday Inn Express brand’s new design solution, which was created to meet the evolving needs of the brand’s target guest who is looking for a simple, smart travel experience.
Jonathan Lund, Regional Vice President, Canada, IHG said: “We are so pleased to have Le Groupe Robin add an additional property in Quebec. They are known for quality properties and we are looking forward to continuing our great relationship with them.”
Nellie Robin, Vice President of Le Groupe Robin said: “IHG has been a trusted partner in the development and opening of our two other Quebec hotels in Saint Hyacinthe and Vaudreuil Dorion. We are excited to expand our partnership with this third property in Trois-Rivières and continue to offer the best service while redefining our vision of hospitality.”
The hotel is set to open early 2018, and will be in the heart of Trois-Rivières. Trois-Rivières is centrally located between the large cities of Montreal and Quebec City; the community has experienced growth over the last few years, making it a major business and leisure destination.
Le Groupe Robin’s two IHG hotels are award-winning properties. The Holiday Inn Express Saint-Hyacinthe was Canada’s first hotel with LEED® certification, and the Holiday Inn Express & Suites Vandreuil-Dorion received the 2016 IHG Developer of the Year Award.
This new property is set to be Quebec’s 16th IHG hotel. IHG has 175 properties and 24,659 rooms in Canada, with 29 hotels and 3,358 rooms in the pipeline.
