TROY — InterContinental Hotels Group announces the opening of a 75-room Holiday Inn Express hotel in Troy.
The hotel is near Southern Illinois University Edwardsville and numerous Metro East businesses and attractions. A June 23 ribbon-cutting ceremony with state Rep. Charlie Meier (R-Okawville) and Mayor Allen Adomite provided an open house for the business community.
“The Troy and Metro East market is a great fit for the Holiday Inn Express brand, given our hotels’ easy highway access to I-55, I-70 and I-270 and proximity to area businesses and attractions,” hotel owner Robert Plummer, president and CEO of R.L.P. Development Co. Inc. and R.P. Lumber Co., said. “We look forward to providing our guests with unmatched comfort and convenience at a great value.”
The hotel features the brand’s newest design. Features include:
- An open, pod-style front desk area that delivers an expedited check-in experience;
- Flexible seating in the Great Room, including tables with built-in wired and wireless charging so guests can collaborate with colleagues or relax with friends and family;
- Streamlined guestrooms that allow guests to be productive during their stay, including noise-reducing headboard and television tower, multiple points of power throughout the room and functional storage allowing guests to live out of their suitcase or unpack into a variety of storage options.
The hotel also features an indoor pool, a 24-hour fitness center and a 24-hour business center. There is 900 square feet of meeting space that can accommodate up to 60 people.
The complimentary breakfast bar offers a range of breakfast items, including yogurt, whole wheat English muffins, cereal, oatmeal flavors in cups and a toppings bar for yogurt, cereal and pancakes from a one-touch pancake machine. The breakfast bar also offers a variety of options, including a rotation of egg and meat selections, biscuits, fruit, cinnamon rolls and coffee.
