IHG's Candlewood Suites® Brand Debuts in Mexico

Extended Stay Brand Marks Arrival with Candlewood Suites Queretaro-Juriquilla Hotel Opening

InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG), one of the world’s leading hotel companies announces today that the new-build, 100-room Candlewood Suites® Queretaro-Juriquilla property has opened as the brand’s first property in Mexico. The Candlewood Suites property joins the Staybridge Suites Queretaro hotel representing both of IHG’s extended stay brands in the city. 

IHG has more than 220 hotels open in México, Latin America and the Caribbean and now eight properties are located in Querétaro. Additionally, the Candlewood Suites Celaya hotel will open as the second Candlewood Suites property in Mexico this year.

Gerardo Murray, Regional Vice President, Brands and Marketing, Mexico, Latin America & Caribbean, said: “The debut of the Candlewood Suites brand in Mexico marks a key moment in the development of IHG’s extended stay brands. As the eighth IHG property in Queretaro, which has undergone significant development with the addition of numerous international companies, the hotel is looking forward to welcoming both business and leisure travelers looking for a comfortable and home-like stay.

The six-story Candlewood Suites-Queretaro-Juriquilla property is located near main businesses and leisure attractions including Parque Industrial Queretaro and Parque Industrial Jurica industrial parks as well as Antea Lifestyle Center and Juriquilla Golf course.

Providing friendly, yet non-intrusive service, the Candlewood Suites brand offers independent guests the ability to be themselves. At the Candlewood Suites Queretaro-Juriquilla hotel, guests enjoy spacious studio, one-bedroom and two-bedroom suites with fully equipped kitchens and executive desks. Additional amenities include a 24 hour fitness center, laundry facility, swimming pool, Gazebo Grill area and the Candlewood Lending Library with a variety of music and movies.

The hotel provides unique offerings for guests staying overnight or for weeks at a time including the Candlewood Cupboard®, a 24-hour in-hotel convenience store which sells products such as breakfast items, snacks, refreshments and easy to prepare meals, and the Lending Locker, where guests can borrow common household items to use during their stay. 
  
The hotel, located at Av. Santa Teresa N° 502-A, Fracc. Juriquilla Santa Fe, C.P. 76147 Querétaro, Qro., is owned by OVQ Querétaro, S.A. de C.V. and managed by Diamond Lodging . The Candlewood Suites brand is part of IHG’s diverse family of brands in nearly 100 countries and territories. The scale and diversity of the IHG family of brands means that its hotels can meet guests’ needs whatever the occasion – whether an overnight getaway, a business trip, a family celebration or a once-in-a-lifetime experience.  Reservations can be made by calling 1-888-CANDLEWOOD or by going to IHG.com/Candlewood
