“We have set an aggressive pace to relaunch our global estate of nearly 3,200 hotels, in excess of 419,000 guest rooms and 12,000 signs by the end of 2010,” said John Merkin, senior vice president, Brand Management, Holiday Inn Brands, the Americas. “And with the addition of HOLIDAY INN EXPRESS DECATUR we are off and running on our journey to make every Holiday Inn hotel as great as our best one.”
Elements of the Holiday Inn brand relaunch include:
Redesigned Brand Signage
An evolution of the iconic script logo, energizing the signature color green and eliminating the current shield shape for a more refreshed and contemporary look.
Refreshed Guest Room
New bedding that redefines the look and feel of each guest room with fresh, white triple sheeting and pillows that come in two comfort levels: “soft” and “firm.” An enhanced bathroom that features an improved showerhead offering superior pressure, as well as a signature shower curtain with curved rod and new amenities to deliver a consistent bath experience that feels fresh and contemporary.
A new signature arrival – including new lighting, landscaping and design features – that
creates an energized and branded sense of welcome that is universally recognizable.
Customized music and scent selections also engage guests in a complete sensory
experience, and a decluttered front desk to promote a more efficient and interactive check-in process.
New Service Promise
A best-in-class service culture – “Stay Real” – to further ensure the team develops the
behaviors and skills to best serve guests so they feel like individuals and not numbers.
“Genuine people delivering real service”. Leading the charge, will be a newly created position at each hotel – the Guest Experience Champion.
“We look forward to offering our guests an enhanced stay experience with a new look and exceptional levels of customer service,” said Michael Edwards, General Manager Holiday Inn Express Decatur. “And we are especially pleased to be among the first wave of properties to showcase these new Holiday Inn brand family hallmarks.”
