InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG) has announced the signing of two new hotels in Giza, Egypt, in partnership with Arabia Hotels, a subsidiary of Arabia Holding.
The announcement was made at the Arabian Travel Market, taking place in Dubai from April 22-25. The new development aligns with IHG’s strategy for portfolio expansion across Middle East and North Africa (Mena), by strengthening the presence in primary markets.
Scheduled to open in 2023, and with rooms directly overlooking the Pyramids, the 200-room Holiday Inn Giza Sun Capital and 150-rooms Staybridge Suites Giza Sun Capital will be the first IHG hotels to open in the area.
Both hotels will be part of Sun Capital, a mixed-use project that will include the largest commercial area in Egypt, a luxury commercial mall - the first outlet mall in Africa, an Egyptian Cultural themed park, an international university and an international school. Additionally, the hotels are strategically located to cater to business, leisure and long stay travellers, sitting 30 minutes away from the city centre, and a convenient 15-minute drive from the 6th October Airport.
