Two new IHG hotels launch in the Polish capital

by | 03 Jan 2021 | Hotel Openings, Projects

Hospitality giant IHG has opened a pair of properties in the heart of Warsaw under its prolific Crowne Plaza and Holiday Inn Express brands.

Crowne Plaza Warsaw – The Hub and Holiday Inn Express Warsaw – The Hub are the latest additions to the Polish capital’s dynamic Rondo Daszyńskiego business district. We take a closer look at these exciting projects.

Introducing the upscale Crowne Plaza Warsaw – The Hub

Marking Crowne Plaza’s debut in Poland, this 212-key property aims to deliver exactly what today’s business travellers want – flexible spaces that offer scope for both work and play.

As well as providing direct access to nearby offices and company headquarters, the hotel features extensive meeting facilities. They include a conference centre for 700 delegates, plus 30 meeting rooms, which boast everything from a classic setup with cosy furnishings, to an industrial feel with exposed brick walls and hardwood floors.

Of course, there are also F&B venues onsite to cater to guests’ gastronomic whims. Executive chef Paweł Suchenek has designed the menus for both all-day-dining venue Signature Bar and restaurant Nova Wola; his focus is on serving up locally sourced healthy dishes that keep guests going come what may.

Marcin Szymfel, general manager of Crowne Plaza Warsaw – The Hub and Holiday Inn Express Warsaw – The Hub, commented: “These have been long-awaited openings and will be a great addition to the IHG portfolio in Poland but also to The Hub business district. As the first Crowne Plaza in the market, we are setting the bar high when it comes to offering guests a sophisticated and premium accommodation with high-class facilities to stay and work at.”

A warm welcome at Holiday Inn Express Warsaw – The Hub

Holiday Inn Express Warsaw – The Hub offers 218 rooms, and guests staying here will have access to all the above-mentioned facilities at Crowne Plaza.

Both hotels are connected to the Rondo Daszyńskiego underground station by a direct tunnel, which allows guests to reach it in just five minutes, while Warsaw Chopin Airport is only a 15-minute drive away. This excellent connectivity makes them ideal not only for business, but also for leisure travellers.

Szymfel concluded: “We are really proud of the work that has happened over the last few months and are confident that guests will be able to find the accommodation that best suits them, whether that be at the Crowne Plaza or the Holiday Inn Express, which has been designed for those savvy travellers looking for accommodation that has everything they need and nothing they don’t need.”



IHG operates hotels in three different ways – as a franchisor, as a manager and on an owned and leased basis.
