IHG® (InterContinental Hotels Group), one of the world’s leading hotel companies, today announces the opening of the Holiday Inn® Lima Miraflores hotel, a new development located in the capital city’s vibrant, seaside neighbourhood of Miraflores. This hotel marks IHG’s fifth property in Peru. It is owned by Grucaba S.A.C. and managed by IHG.
Just steps from Kennedy Park, the 17-story Holiday Inn Lima Miraflores hotel is centrally located at Av Ricardo Palma 355 and surrounded by Lima’s finest dining, entertainment and shopping venues as well as several cultural attractions, such as the Amano, Pre-Columbian Textile Museum and Huaca Huallamarcam, a renowned archaeological site in Lima.
Jorge Apaez, Chief Operating Officer, Mexico, Latin America & the Caribbean, IHG, said: “Peru is a thriving destination, and we are thrilled to be adding this Holiday Inn property to the dynamic district of Miraflores. The Holiday Inn Lima Miraflores hotel perfectly blends modern-day comforts with the rich culture and history of the area to provide relaxing, authentic local stays for the enjoyment of both leisure and business travellers.”
While the hotel is a sleek, modern building, the interiors pay homage to the country’s pre-Incan culture, known as the Lima culture. While the hotel’s interior minimalist and geometric design was inspired by the Lima culture, the archaeological site of Puruchucos serves as the main architectural reference for the building. Rene Poggione led the architectural designs for the emblematic hotel, while the revered architect Germán Margozzini spearheaded the hotel’s interior design. Additional elements adorning the guest rooms and public areas are photographs and artwork by the talented Maco Vargas, Giham Tubeh and Isabel Rejtman, Peruvian artists renowned for their series of works inspired by pre-Inca architecture.
A representative from Grucaba S.A.C. said: “We are proud to have created a strong partnership with IHG and its world-renowned Holiday Inn brand to create a hotel that offers modern architecture with distinct design elements of the Lima culture. Our new Holiday Inn Lima Miraflores hotel is positioned to provide guests with unforgettable experiences, the most comfortable accommodations and truly personalized Peruvian hospitality.”
With its central location and fresh design, Holiday Inn Lima Miraflores has 200 stylish guest rooms, including a penthouse suite, which offers amazing city views; the Lima Restaurant and Lounge, serving favourite local cuisine; a fully equipped business centre; an outdoor swimming pool on the hotel’s eighth floor; and a 24-hour fitness centre. The property also boasts more than 3,000 square feet of meeting and event space.
Peru continues to be one of South America’s fastest-growing emerging markets, providing a strong economic environment for IHG’s diverse portfolio of brands. IHG currently has four hotels open in Peru’s capital city – Holiday Inn Lima Airport, Holiday Inn Express® Lima San Isidro, the new Holiday Inn Lima Miraflores and Crowne Plaza® Lima. In June of 2019, IHG also celebrated the opening of Holiday Inn Piura located in the northern part of the country.
The Holiday Inn Lima Miraflores offers IHG® Connect, which delivers enhanced Wi-Fi with the fastest speeds in the industry, as well as an auto-recognition feature for IHG® Rewards Club members, so guests only need to sign in once to access hotel Wi-Fi at all IHG Connect-enabled hotels. The hotel also participates in IHG Green Engage™ and offers unique programs to ensure sustainability.
There are currently more than 1,200 Holiday Inn hotels worldwide, of which 95 are located within IHG’s Mexico, Latin America and Caribbean regions. With roots in Latin America, IHG’s first InterContinental® hotel opened in Belem, Brazil in 1949.
