After a long remodeling, finally on Wednesday June 5th, the “Holiday Inn Express Mérida-Centro Histórico Hotel” officially opened its doors, on the premises of what was one of the most emblematic buildings in the heart of the city, on Calle 60: the former Hotel Mérida.
The cutting of the ribbon was in charge of the governor of Yucatan, Mauricio Vila Dosal and the hotel managers, who then conducted a tour of the 131-room property.
“Endless stories are always weaved in hotels, moments and memories. Some of the most memorable encounters in people’s lives often happen in these temporary homes, “Fernando Vega Espinosa, president of the Board of Directors of Holiday Inn Express Mérida Centro Histórico, emphasized in his message.
Vega Espinosa stressed that Mérida lives a remarkable boom in terms of tourism, it has become a highly fashionable destination and many business travelers close important deals in this city.
“Thousands of people will spend their business trip or vacation in our hotel, and we want each and every one of them to live an amazing and unforgettable experience,” said the president of the Board of Directors of Holiday Inn Express Mérida Centro Histórico.
The hotel features 131 rooms, swimming pool, gym, breakfast room, a sky roof terrace on the twelfth floor, and an independent operation restaurant with access to Calle 60 that will soon be opening.
It is expected that by the end of this year Holiday Inn Express Mérida Centro Histórico will have between 90 and 95 percent occupancy.
In total, an investment of 280 million pesos was made for the restoration, adaptation and modernization of this emblematic building, abandoned for years and now fully operational once again in the heart of downtown Mérida.
