InterContinental Grand Ankara
IHG Hotels & Resorts Grows Turkey Luxury Presence With Signing Of Intercontinental Grand Ankara
Scheduled for 2023 – 214 Rooms
The highly anticipated conversion project is scheduled to open in the nation's capital in 2023 and will mark the transformation of the historic former Büyük Ankara Hotel, which dates back to 1966 when it was launched as the city's first five-star hotel and then went on to become the Grand Ankara Hotel. The timing of this next chapter for this iconic hotel comes as InterContinental® Hotels & Resorts celebrates 75 years of pioneering luxury travel.
As a result of its partnership with IHG Hotels & Resorts, Çelikler Holding has embarked on a major repositioning project for the property to deliver upon the discreet luxury and worldly sophistication for which InterContinental brand is known.
InterContinental Grand Ankara will exude modern luxury throughout its 214 rooms, which include a 350m² Presidential Suite and 21 other suites. World class dining is offered with all-day menus, served in the Brasserie Restaurant, which incorporates a stylish lobby bar, and at Lalezar Restaurant, featuring a private dining terrace. When it's time to unwind, the hotel's 1500m² spa is the perfect place to while away a few hours, while its swimming pool will be situated on a 1000m² terrace with a retractable roof.
The hotel itself is located close to many local attractions including; Ankara Castle, the historical mausoleum site; Anitkabir, Europe's second largest aquarium, parks, green spaces and museums, making it attractive for families, leisure and corporate visitors.
