New Holiday Inn for Sunshine Coast

Pro-Invest will open the 167-key Holiday Inn Express & Suites Sunshine Coast in 2020


Key points:

  • Pro-Invest has lodged a development application to build a new Holiday Inn Express

  • 167-key hotel, scheduled to open in 2020

  • Pro-Invest’s sixth in the pipeline for the brand


Pro-Invest will open Holiday Inn Express & Suites Sunshine Coast in Maroochydore Town Centre in 2020, following the purchase of a prime site in Maroochydore and lodgement of a development application with Economic Development Queensland for a new select-service upper midscale hotel.


The nine-storey Holiday Inn Express & Suites is planned to have 167 rooms, a swimming pool, bar and dining venue, conference and function facilities, and ground-level retail.


Pro-Invest has a Master Development Agreement with InterContinental Hotels Group to develop and operate the Holiday Inn Express brand in Australia and New Zealand under franchise.


Ronald Barrott, CEO of Pro-Invest, said “The Holiday Inn Express brand is ideal for the destination as its upper-midscale positioning will make it highly-suitable for targeting business, meetings and leisure travellers.”


Holiday Inn Express & Suites Sunshine Coast will be Proinvest’s sixth in the pipeline for the brand, adding to the four already open in Adelaide, Sydney Macquarie Park, Newcastle, and Proinvest’s other Queensland property, Holiday Inn Express Brisbane Central, which opened in 2017.
