IHG today announces the signing of Crowne Plaza & Holiday Inn Express Stockholm Arlanda Airport, which will be the company’s first hotels in Sweden after returning to the market.
Entering a new strategic partnership with owning company Björnbäckens Fastighets AB, the franchise deal strengthens IHG’s presence in the Nordic markets and underscores the company’s growth ambitions for Sweden and beyond.
The dual-branded property will see a total of 420 rooms – 120 housed in the Crowne Plaza property, and 300 rooms at the Holiday Inn Express hotel. It will also feature a full-service conference centre and gym facilities, as well as a stunning bar and restaurant to enjoy some downtime. Strategically located just outside Sweden’s capital Stockholm, the largest city in the Nordics, and near both the country’s busiest airport and the new Scandinavian XPO fairground, the new-built hotel is ideally placed to cater to leisure and business travellers alike.
Crowne Plaza & Holiday Inn Express Stockholm Arlanda Airport are set to open in 2026 and will be operated by Mogotel Development Holding, a key hotel operator in the Baltics and beyond.
IHG currently has eight hotels operating across three brands in the Nordic countries, including Crowne Plaza, Hotel Indigo, and Holiday Inn. In addition to the newly signed Crowne Plaza and Holiday Inn Express Stockholm Arlanda Airport, the pipeline for the Nordics also includes two stunning Six Senses properties: Six Senses Svart in Norway, and Six Senses Össurá Valley in Iceland.
