A few minutes from the airport and the main petrochemical complexes, the hotel is also conveniently accessible to several cultural attractions such as the renowned archeological zones of San Lorenzo Tenochtitlán. In order to meet the ever-changing needs of its guest, IHG invested in the $1 billion Holiday Inn global brand relaunch, the largest in hospitality history. The relaunch continues to drive increased quality and consistency across the global portfolio, and new hotels feature a contemporary image with emphasis on arrival and welcome services, guestroom and guest bath comfort and a redesigned logo and signage.
The 120-room Holiday Inn Coatzacoalcos hotel includes two master suites and one presidential suite – all facing beautiful ocean views. The hotel design features a familiar atmosphere that is warm, trend forward and comfortable. Guest beds are made using crisp, white bedding with pillows that come in two comfort levels: "soft" and "firm."
