A strategic move

Commenting on the announcement, Pascal Gauvin, MD, IMEA, IHG: “We are thrilled to establish a footprint in Algeria in collaboration with our eminent partner, S.A.R.L Modern Towers and expand our presence in Africa.

The opening of Holiday Inn Algiers – Cheraga Tower is a strategic move for us as Algeria’s proximity to Europe, airline connectivity, strong culture and heritage along with substantial business links creates a strong demand for international branded accommodation and a need for world-class hospitality.”

Omar Ramdane, co-manager, S.A.R.L Modern Towers said: “It is a privilege for Modern Towers to partner with IHG for its first hotel in Algeria, the beginning of a relationship of mutual trust and professionalism. I am confident that Holiday Inn Algiers - Cheraga Tower is the first step. We hope to develop similar projects in the future that will meet both IHG's expectations and the ambitions of Modern Towers.''

Algeria is Africa's largest country, and the world's 10th largest.
