The largest hotel company both in Latin America and the world by number of rooms announced Thursday that the property will open its doors in the city in November 2013.
Upon opening, the seven-story Holiday Inn Express Rio Branco will feature 110 guestrooms, four meeting rooms, business center, fitness center, indoor pool and plenty of guest parking.
The Holiday Inn Express Rio Branco will be located in downtown Rio Branco within close proximity to key tourist destinations, including the city’s government sectors, as well as shopping and entertainment.
The hotel will be owned by Inter-Oceanica Hotelaria e Turismo Ltda., under a franchise agreement with a company within InterContinental Hotels Group.
The city of Rio Branco is the capital of the northwest Brazilian State of Acre, which borders Peru and Bolivia. Situated in the heart of the Amazon Rainforest, Rio Branco is expected to experience significant growth over the next 5 to 10 years due to the high production of rubber, along with its emerging timber and cattle industry.
