ARLINGTON, Va., Jan. 2, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Interstate Hotels & Resorts announced the opening of Holiday Inn Express The Hague on Dec. 21, 2012, representing the first Holiday Inn Express to open in The Hague. The 123-room hotel, with a prime location next to the Dutch Parliament and the American Embassy, is the fifth hotel managed by Interstate to open in The Netherlands, and resulted from a partnership between Interstate and The Vincent Hotel Group (TVHG).
"As we progress in our global expansion strategy, we're confident in the success of our efforts in The Netherlands, a market with high demand for well-known international hotel brands," said Jim Abrahamson, chief executive officer of Interstate Hotels & Resorts. "Through our strong partnership with a leading hotel developer in The Netherlands, TVHG, and exceptional brand relationships, we're certain the introduction of the Holiday Inn Express brand into The Hague will be a success."
An ideal surrounding for future guests, The Hague boasts historic character and diverse choices in shopping, dining, entertainment and museums, such as the Mauritshuis, Panorama Mesdag and Louwman Museum. Upon entering the hotel, guests are greeted by modern decor in the lobby and bar areas, followed by spacious, soundproof rooms equipped with modern LCD TVs and free wireless Internet.
"The recently announced Metric Capital Partners and Hutton Collins investment of TVHG supports our already active development efforts in the Netherlands," said Bart van de Kamp, CEO of The Vincent Hotel Group (TVHG). "The influx of additional capital, combined with Interstate's world-class operations and longstanding relationships with leading international brands, favorably positions us to aggressively expand our hotel development projects in the region."
