The hotel, which is managed by independent hotel management company RBH, has already seen its existing 161 bedrooms refurbished and an extensive remodelling to its lobby and public areas, with over £350,000 spent upgrading its facilities to Holiday Inn Express’ new ‘Generation 4’ standards.
The hotel is also set to receive a further 25 brand new bedrooms, also following the ‘Generation 4’ concept, set to be added to the property by mid-July this year – taking the total rooms available to 186.
The substantial investment will see the new rooms feature large beds with padded, noise reducing headboards, as well as flexible work and rest corners.
Stephen Harron, divisional director for RBH, said: “The transformation of Holiday Inn Express Edinburgh City Centre really gives us an edge when it comes to providing excellent city centre accommodation, and is proving to be a very exciting time for the hotel.
“The bedrooms and public areas have been completely revamped, along with the installation of air conditioning and high speed IHG connect complimentary WIFI throughout the building, ensuring we can offer the best in guest experience, whether staying in Edinburgh for business or leisure.”
