Intercontinental opens for business in Alexandria
The first of three hotel properties now operated by Six Continents Hotels in Alexandria has opened for business under its new management.
The hotel was one of three Alexandria properties which joined the Six Continents Hotels portfolio in Egypt earlier this year as the result of a management agreement between the hotel operator and the Hannovill Egypt Tours Company.
Also included in the management agreement are the InterContinental Windsor Palace and the Holiday Inn Resort Alexandria, which will both officially open for business under new management shortly.
Built a century ago by Greek and Italian architects and classified as a heritage property, InterContinental Le Metropole Alexandria is a boutique hotel characterized by period style interiors, and is situated in the heart of Old Alexandria, overlooking the Mediterranean.
It offers 66 classic period-style rooms and suites, an all-day restaurant serving French and Middle Eastern cuisine, a multi-purpose function hall with two breakout rooms, and a business center.
Six Continents Hotels currently manages ten InterContinental, Crowne Plaza and Holiday Inn hotels and resorts in Egypt among a portfolio of 34 properties in the Middle East. Six Continents Hotels is a UK-based hotel group whose brands include InterContinental Hotels & Resorts, Crowne Plaza Hotels and Resorts, Holiday Inn, Express by Holiday Inn and Staybridge Suites. It owns, operates or franchises more than 3,300 hotels and over 515,000 guest rooms in nearly 100 countries and territories around the world. — (menareport.com)
