Deal signed for InterCon Tripoli


The InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG) and Magna Holdings Limited, have signed an agreement to open the InterContinental Tripoli in the Libyan capital in 2010.

Situated on the waterfront corniche near Green Square in the heart of Tripoli, the 351-room InterContinental Tripoli will offer stunning views across the city and the waterfront, and is located close to Tripoli’s central business district. The hotel will also feature 42 InterContinental branded serviced apartments.
The agreement also sees management of the historic Al Waddan hotel come under InterContinental management, which will open as an upscale boutique 90-room hotel later this year after a significant renovation.
Aimed primarily at business travellers, the hotel will feature state-of-the-art meeting space and conference facilities, as well as leisure facilities, including restaurants, a health club and a spa.
