InterContinental Hotels Group Opens Crowne Plaza Semarang

InterContinental Hotels Group has opened the new Crowne Plaza Semarang, its second property under the brand in Indonesia. Strategically located in the city’s central business district near major business and leisure addresses, the 270-room hotel is a short 15-minute drive from Achmad Yani International Airport.


Furnished with luxury bedding and spacious marble bathrooms, the accommodations are well-equipped with state-of-the-art amenities including LCD television, iPod docking stations, high-speed internet access, voicemail telephone, desk-level power outlet, workdesk with ergonomic chair, in-room safe, minibar and coffee-/tea-making facilities. Guests staying in the hotel’s Club rooms and suites have access to the Club Lounge and a personalized check-in/out area, while extended-stay travellers have the option of 4 suite units with separate living and dining rooms, bedrooms and kitchens.


Crowne Plaza Semarang’s 2 restaurants, Gedoeng Gris and Yu Shan Fang, are set to revitalize the city’s dining scene. The former offers a delectable array of international and local buffet items, while the latter promises delicious Chinese favorites throughout the day. A cocktail lounge, One-18, serves up a selection of drinks and light bites ideal for an afternoon business discussion or late night catchup.


Business travellers and meeting planners will have access to modern and functional event spaces, including central Java’s largest pillar-less ballroom that can accommodate up to 2,000 guests, a wedding chapel and gallery. A full-service business center provides the necessary office support, while an outdoor swimming pool, health club and sauna facilities cater for recreation after business has been taken care of.


The opening of the Crowne Plaza Semarang underscores InterContinental Hotels Group’s strong expansion in Southeast Asia. The group currently has a pipeline of 32 hotels and resorts under its brands under development across the region, with a further 3 properties (Holiday Inn Express Bangkok Siam, InterContinental Samui Baan Taling Ngam Resort and the InterContinental Danang Resort) slated to open in the first quarter of 2012.
