Holiday Inn Dandenong and Holiday Inn & Suites Geelong promise to offer brighter stays and exceptional experiences.

With over 70 years of history, Holiday Inn is one of the world’s most recognised and trusted brands and it continues to be one of IHG’s brightest performers, creating memorable experiences for thousands of guests on a daily basis.

The IHG and Holiday Inn brand teams work closely with owners to bring to life designs that evoke smiles and make stays brighter, all the while keeping the needs of guests at the top of continuous innovation. In recent years, the Holiday Inn brand has enhanced its proposition by elevating design, launching its Open Lobby concept, and offering enticing food and beverage options in its restaurants, bars and cafes, to great effect. The brand’s Open Lobby concept, which combines all public spaces, from reception area to the restaurant and bar, into one open, lively and cohesive space, has been a game changer and allows guests to make themselves at home and enjoy their stay on their own terms, whether they’re there to eat, drink, work or socialise.

Two exciting new Holiday Inn hotels that will soon open their doors and embody all of the Holiday Inn hallmarks are Holiday Inn Dandenong and Holiday Inn & Suites Geelong, with both properties promising to offer brighter stays and exceptional experiences.

Gearing up for a grand opening in July 2023, Holiday Inn & Suites Geelong will be a refreshing place to stay. Guests will be able to enjoy a ‘brighter place to connect’ with stylish and contemporary accommodation in the heart of the CBD, all the while being within walking distance to Geelong Stadium and other major event venues. The hotel offers 180 rooms, including 23 suites with kitchenettes, an indoor heated pool, a well-equipped gym, and 24/7 concierge service. The open lobby will be a vibrant communal environment where guests can relax and connect with friends and family or other travellers, while the Quarter Grill steakhouse and surrounding restaurants offer a range of delicious food options.

At Holiday Inn Dandenong, guests will be able to enjoy the best of Dandenong from a central location.Moments from the East Link Freeway, the hotel is an easy commute from Melbourne International Airport, with key businesses, government departments, Dandenong Stadium and Drum Theatre right on its doorstep. Once again, the hotel’s open lobby will be a lively environment where guests can enjoy a fresh breakfast and Mediterranean-style lunch or dinner at Dandelion Bar. For a little extra indulgence, guests can enjoy an aperitivo at Dandelion’s or enjoy a collection of Italian and local Victorian wines and beer on tap. Working with local businesses and providores is a key priority for the team.

Both Holiday Inn & Suites Geelong and Holiday Inn Dandenong embody the brand promise of enabling real human connections and making travel a brighter experience. With their focus on creating memorable guest experiences and providing caring, personalised, and proactive service, Holiday Inn continues to be a trusted and beloved brand for travellers around the world, particularly in Australia.
