March 10, 2014 // Franchising.com // InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG®), one of the world's largest hotel companies has announced the signing of two more hotels in Germany under two existing multiple development agreements (MDA's) in place with long standing partners.

Holiday Inn Express® Siegen will be a newly constructed 120-room hotel operating under a franchise agreement with existing MDA partner Tristar Hotel & Management GmbH. The property will be the first IHG hotel to open in Siegen, a popular university town in Germany with a population in excess of 100,000. Due to open towards the end of 2015, the hotel is centrally located on an intersection in the heart of the city; and within walking distance of the main rail station.

Meanwhile the newly constructed 213-room Holiday Inn® Düsseldorf – Toulouser Allee will mark the Holiday Inn brand's return to Düsseldorf. The hotel, which is due to open in 2016, will operate under a franchise agreement with existing MDA partner Arcadia Hotelbetriebs GmbH which currently operates Holiday Inn Munich South, Holiday Inn Express Gütersloh, Holiday Inn Express Osnabrück and Holiday Inn Salzburg. Featuring Holiday Inn's innovative Open Lobby; the hotel is located in the attractive redeveloped area "Le Quartier Central" close to the city centre and is a ten-minute drive from Düsseldorf Airport.

Robert Shepherd, Chief Development Officer, Europe IHG said, "Tristar and Arcadia are among the most reputable and successful hotel operators in Germany and we are delighted to see our Holiday Inn brand family continue to expand in this priority market. Our multiple development agreements are proving very effective in accelerating the pace of development growth for our owner partners and for IHG."

Matthias Koerber from Tristar Hotel & Management GmbH said, "We are very proud to have signed our fifth Holiday Inn brand family hotel for Tristar Hotel & Management GmbH. We are on track to sign a further 10 IHG branded hotels in Germany in the next six years in order to have more than 15 hotels under our current MDA agreement. It's great working with such a fantastic team of experienced professionals at IHG."
