News release placeholder
The largest Holiday Inn Express® in France opens at one of Europe’s busiest airports

Directly connected to Terminal 1, the Holiday Inn Express® at Paris – Charles de Gaulle (CDG) Airport, an IHG® hotel, has recently opened to provide guests with easy access to one of the world's busiest airports as well as speedy transport links into central Paris.

Gone are the days of waiting in the airport for a ten hour lay-over, or waking up at the crack of dawn to catch an early morning flight. The newly-opened Holiday Inn Express Paris – CDG Airport is the perfect destination for travellers who want to make their next trip that little bit easier.

The newly built 305-room Holiday Inn Express ‘Next Generation’ property has been designed with guests’ needs in mind. Each room features wide beds with noise-absorbing headboards, bed-side built-in USB ports, plasma screens that can be connected to personal devices to stream media, a power shower and free Wi-Fi available throughout the hotel.

In the modern public spaces, guests can also enjoy an Express Start Breakfast™ included in their room rate, offering a selection of hot and continental food. The Express Café & Bar is also open 24/7 so there’s always a place for jet-lagged travellers, late arrivers or early risers to grab a bite. The hotel also boasts naturally lit meeting spaces which are available for business meetings.

Mike Greenup, Vice President, Marketing for EMEAA (Europe, Middle East, Asia and Africa) at IHG, commented: “This greatly anticipated hotel offer guests everything they need for a stopover, just metres from the terminal of one of the world’s most vibrant airports. Whether guests are staying with us at the beginning or end of their trip, we know our hotel will help to get their travels off to a great start or a perfect finish. Our goal is to put the right brands in the right locations and this hotel is another great example of the Holiday Inn Express brand in Europe.”

Arnaud Vermerie, GM of Holiday Inn Express Paris - CDG Airport commented: “Paris is already a European travel hub and our new hotel is in a prime position to support the needs of business and leisure guests alike. We’re also in a great location for those who wish to venture into central Paris as we are right opposite the train station. More importantly, we offer a comfortable bed and a power shower to leave all travellers feeling refreshed.”

Holiday Inn Express is IHG’s largest and fastest growing hotel brand globally with 2,600 hotels open and an additional 766 set to open in the next few years. Across Europe, there are 244 Holiday Inn Express hotels open and 67 in the development pipeline, 9 of which will be in France.
