RBH has announced the construction of a new Holiday Inn hotel in Blackpool.
The hotel management firm has secured a contract with Blackpool council and Muse Developments that will see the building of a four-star hotel within the Talbot Gateway central business district.
The venue is set to open in the summer of 2022 and will feature 144 bedrooms as well as a Marco Pierre White restaurant. The firm said the launch forms part of a wider “regeneration project” for Blackpool which includes the launch of new retail units and improved public transport links.
Blackpool is currently home to one other RBH hotel, the Blackpool Imperial Hotel which is located near the town’s promenade.
Andrew Robb, chief business development officer at RBH, said: ”It has been great to work with the team at Blackpool Council over the past few years, seeing first-hand the passion and dedication they have for their town.
“As the flagship commercial development for Blackpool, Holiday Inn will form the centerpiece of the Talbot Gateway development’s second phase, transforming an important gateway to the town. We are delighted to be working with our partners at IHG on this project and can’t wait to get started.”
