Located next to The Zone shopping centre in the heart of the Rosebank business district to the north of downtown Johannesburg, the new 158-room Holiday Inn Rosebank opened for business on 7 May.
Managed by ISO Leisure and owned by the InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG), Holiday Inn Rosebank is conveniently situated for both business and leisure travellers, 30 minutes’ drive from OR Tambo International Airport and close to the Sandton business district.
It’s within easy reach of shopping centres and tourist attractions like the Apartheid Museum and Constitution Hill, offering visitors plenty of entertainment while in Johannesburg. Guests will also benefit from a business centre, fitness centre, outdoor pool, cocktail bar and restaurant.
“The passion and commitment of our partners like ISO Leisure allows us to continue to build great hotels that guests love in South Africa,” IHG Europe, Middle East and Africa president Kirk Kinsell said at the hotel last week. “We have deep roots in Africa and a special affinity with South Africa.
“We’re committed to our long-term investment plan in this country. We believe our developments here will contribute to domestic and international market growth and the Holiday Inn brand is the perfect fit for both these types of travellers.”
ISO Leisure also manages Holiday Inn Express Woodmead in Johannesburg, and co-owns Holiday Inn Express St George’s Mall in Cape Town and Holiday Inn Express Sunny Park in Pretoria with partners Zenprop.
ISO Leisure has also signed a deal with IHG to operate the Holiday Inn Express Umhlanga Rocks in Durban, due to open soon.
“As IHG’s exclusive partner for developing the Holiday Inn Express brand in South Africa, we’re thrilled that we’re now opening the Holiday Inn Rosebank,” said ISO Leisure CEO Gavin Watson.
IHG already has seven hotels and 1 621 rooms in South Africa, including two InterContinental hotels, one Crowne Plaza hotel, one Holiday Inn hotel and three Holiday Inn Express Hotels.
