InterContinental Hotels Group today announces the signing of a management agreement with OSK Holdings Berhad to convert Swiss Inn Johor Bahru to Holiday Inn Express & Suites Johor Bahru at the beginning of 2021.

The 203-room hotel supports the growth of the Holiday Inn Express footprint in Malaysia. The brand is the first choice for the increasing number of travellers seeking a simple and engaging place to rest, recharge and get a little work done, too.

With smart, savvy travel in the brand's DNA, Holiday Inn Express & Suites Johor Bahru offers everything a guest needs, including a gym, self-service laundry, flexible meeting space, an all-day dining restaurant and lobby bar counter. The brand's much-loved hallmarks also go towards ensuring a great stay, such as complimentary Express Start breakfast, power showers, blackout blinds, high-quality bedding with a choice of pillows for a sensational sleep experience, and unlimited Wi-Fi.

Centrally located in Johor Bahru, the hotel is easily accessible within a 30-minute drive of Senai International Airport and close to the land border with Singapore. It is also near to the upcoming Singapore-Johor Bahru Rapid Transit System (RTS) linking Johor Bahru to Woodlands in Singapore.

With Johor Bahru acting as a central hub for "Iskandar Malaysia", a southern economic corridor earmarked for significant economic development, its central area hosts a broad range of multinational companies, primarily in the shipping, petrochemical, and manufacturing industries.

The hotel's location offers business visitors easy access to the main industrial parks and corporate and government offices, with its proximity to the Persada Johor International Convention Centre making it perfect for MICE delegates attending events. Leisure travellers will meanwhile delight in the wide range of shopping, dining, entertainment and relaxation options at two of Johor Bahru's most popular malls, Komtar JBCC and Johor Bahru City Square, as well as a range of local cafes and dining spots.

IHG has a long-standing commitment to rigorous cleaning procedures at all its hotels worldwide. This is being extended with additional COVID-19 protocols and best practices, in partnership with industry leading experts Cleveland Clinic, Ecolab, and Diversey. As part of the IHG family, Holiday Inn Express and Suites Johor Bahru will follow IHG's Way of Clean and offer all guests the IHG Clean Promise.
