IHG’s Latest Hotel in the Caribbean

By: Caribbean Journal Staff - May 23, 2016

It’s one of the burgeoning hotel development hubs of the region: the Caribbean coast of Colombia.

And now the area has another new hotel, with the debut of InterContinental Hotels Group’s new Holiday Inn Express Barranquilla Buenavista.

The 18-floor, 154-room hotel is the newest addition to a coastal city that has been seeing increased interest and development by hotel firms, with new properties including a Four Points By Sheraton that debuted last year.


That was boosted last year by the launch of new American Airlines flights between Miami and Barranquilla.

It includes a rooftop pool.


The hotel is located in one of the more exclusive areas of Barranquilla, the Buenavista neighborhood.

The project is the brainchild of Grupo Contempo SAS, and is managed by OXO Hotels, franchised by IHG.
