Derry’s newest hotel – the ‘Holiday Inn Express Derry-Londonderry’ – has just opened its doors in the city centre.
The £7 million investment located at Strand Road will generate 44 new jobs.
The hotel, now the second biggest in the city, boasts 119 modern bedrooms and is part of the IHG (Intercontinental Hotels Group), one of the world’s leading hotel companies.
Speaking about the opening of the new hotel, President of the Londonderry Chamber, Brian McGrath said: “This is excellent news for the city. Our tourism offer in the region is steadily growing and this new £7m investment by Holiday Inn adds another great hotel to our growing list and provides more choice for visitors. The creation of 44 new jobs in the process is a great boost for the city, not to mention the wider benefits that will be felt in the local supply chain.”
