Holiday Inn Express reveals new phase of Hull city centre regeneration programme
The Holiday Inn Express has confirmed further major investment for its site in Hull city centre only weeks after completing the latest improvement programme.
The Holiday Inn Express in Ferensway is set to refurbish its reception, bar and lounge areas with completion due by March 2020.
The project was announced by the hotel’s general manager, Debra Hutchins, who said: “It’s great that on the day we have invited businesses from around Hull to look at the improvements to the bedrooms we are able to confirm that we have been given the go-ahead for the next phase of improvements.
“The company has approved the investment for everything we were hoping to do and the result will be a completely new look for the reception, the bar and lounge and the breakfast area.
“We’re working on a start date now but the aim at this point is to have it ready by March next year.”
The Holiday Inn Express opened in 2007, soon after the adjacent St Stephen’s Shopping Centre and currently employs 32 people.
Anthony Yates, head of visitor destination at Visit Hull, added: “We were excited when we were invited for a tour of the refurbished bedrooms and it was fantastic to arrive here and to learn about the future investment.
“It’s great for the city and the region to see major companies investing to improve the visitor offer in Hull and East Yorkshire.”
