“We’ve been thrilled by the enthusiasm for select-service hotels in Australasia and it’s truly exciting to have signed our seventh Holiday Inn Express hotel, and the second in Melbourne,” Ron Barrott, CEO at Pro-Invest, said in a statement. “Melbourne continues to experience significant demand so it’s a great time to be opening a new hotel.”
Holiday Inn Express Melbourne Little Collins will mark the second Holiday Inn Express in Melbourne after Macquarie Park. Approximately 2,500 Holiday Inn Express hotels are open across the globe, of which 24 are in the Asia, Middle East and Africa region.
