New hotel delivers a simple and smart travel experience. 

InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG), one of the world’s leading hotel companies, announces the opening of the Holiday Inn Express Tuxpan hotel in Veracruz, Mexico.  

This new-build 132-room hotel is IHG’s third property in the city, with the Holiday Inn Tuxpan hotel and Crowne Plaza Tuxpan hotel already located nearby.

Gerardo Murray, Regional Vice President, Brands & Marketing, Mexico, Latin America and Caribbean, IHG said: “IHG is excited to announce the arrival of the Holiday Inn Express brand to Tuxpan, a city that projects strong tourism growth. This new hotel will deliver a smart lodging option to travelers who want connectivity and convenience when on the road.”

Located alongside the warm, calm waters of the Tuxpan River, the property is on Carretera a La Barra Rd Km 6.5 in La Calzada neighborhood and is just five minutes away from the beach and ten minutes from the broad mangroves area. After the construction of the new Mexico-Tuxpan highway, Tuxpan is now the closest beach destination from Mexico City making it ideal for travelers seeking relaxation and ecotourism adventures alike.  The property also offers convenient access to the commercial and industrial areas, and it is a one-hour drive from El Tajin Archeological area. 

The Holiday Inn Express Tuxpan hotel has a 24-hour fitness center, indoor and outdoor children's swimming pools, outdoor swimming pool for adults, meeting space and a spacious parking lot.  Guest rooms have modern design, comfortable queen, king-size, or two double beds, a sitting area with a lounge chair, 40” TV Flat Screen, iron and ironing board, minibar and an in-room coffee machine with complimentary coffee. The hotel also offers enhanced technology through IHG Connect and improved service delivery for a simple, smart travel experience.

The complimentary Desayuno Express bar features a full range of breakfast items, including a rotation of eggs and meat selections, pastries, yogurt, fruit, coffee, juices, and regional dishes such as Arroz a la Tumbada (a breakfast seafood rice dish containing shrimp, clams, crab and octopus prepared with a spicy tomato sauce). 

The Holiday Inn Express Tuxpan hotel is owned and managed by Grupo Inmobiliario Ricsher, S.A. de C.V and is franchised by an affiliate of IHG. The property is part of IHG’s diverse family of brands in nearly 100 countries and territories.
