The newest hotel in Hampton Roads offers guests an enhanced experience, complimented by Holiday Inns new H4 design package.
Neel Desai, Managing Principal of LTD Hospitality Group, is pleased to announce the opening of the Holiday Inn® Newport News – City Center Hotel in Newport News, Virginia. The hotel is located off of Interstate 64 at the gateway to the City Center district. LTD purchased the hotel in December 2016 and invested significant capital to re-brand the hotel and fully transform the183 guestrooms, lobby, restaurant, and more than 10,000 square feet of meeting space.
“The transformation of this hotel has been astonishing and is a testament to LTD’s vision, hard- working associates, and strong partnerships,” said Desai. “We’ve worked closely with the City of Newport News and IHG throughout the entire process of renovating and rebranding this hotel.
We are confident that the completely redesigned and reimagined Holiday Inn Newport News – City Center, featuring IHG’s newest guestroom design package and custom-designed elements, will help advance the long-term goals of the City of Newport News to grow tourism and aid in the revitalization of the City,” added Desai.
Echoing Desai’s excitement for the project, Director of Development Florence Kingston said, “LTD’s modernization and update of the hotel is a great addition to the Oyster Point area. The new Holiday Inn will provide quality lodging to Newport News’ visitors and will support growth in our local tourism industry. LTD has already proven to be a committed, community-minded partner and we are glad that LTD chose to make its investment in Newport News.”
The hotel features Burger Theory™, the Holiday Inn brand’s full-service restaurant concept that offers a customizable menu with more than 4,000 potential burger combinations and a large selection of craft beers and cocktails. Kids 12 and younger eat free at the restaurant when ordering from the kids’ menu and accompanied by a dining adult. The grab-and-go Mariner’s Market serves healthy and vegan options like salads, wraps, bento boxes, and protein and charcuterie boxes.
The hotel also features the Holiday Inn brand’s new H4 guest room design. The flexible room design can adapt to each guest’s individual needs, allowing them to work or relax wherever and however they want and truly make the space their own. As part of the design, the Holiday Inn Newport News – City Center offers the following features:
- A Welcome Nook serves as a drop zone for guests to hang their coat, drop their keys and personal belongings and plug in their devices – much like they would an entryway or mudroom in their own home.
- An entirely new room type, the King Bed with Comfort Hideaway, features a trundle- type bed which doubles as a sofa during the day and can pull out into two twin beds at night. The room design is ideal for both business travelers, serving as a separate place to work or relax and unwind, and families with kids and teens, giving each member of the family a comfortable place to sleep and play.
- A new Moveable Desk and more than five dedicated points of power throughout the room. These features were designed with today’s travelers in mind, giving them the ability to work and play anywhere in the room.
“This wonderful hotel showcases two of our most important brand innovations for Holiday Inn, Burger Theory and the new H4 guestroom design,” said Errol Williams, Vice President, Global Holiday Inn Brand, IHG. “We are excited to work together with franchisees like LTD Hospitality Group to grow this iconic brand,” added Williams.
“We are thrilled to show off the transformation of this hotel, which now offers guests plenty of gathering areas to lounge, work, meet, and eat,” said Liz Parker, General Manager. “Our prime location, close to restaurants, shopping, and many corporations and military installations, makes this an ideal place to stay. The entire staff is excited to welcome travelers and deliver exceptional customer service,” added Parker.
