Holiday Inns are known as the UK’s upmarket Travelodges, littering all major cities and tourist attractions, offering guests a less expensive but still accommodating stay. However, the Holiday Inn of Oxford has pushed the boat out to offer guests a new feel unmatched by most Holiday Inns.
They have undergone an impressive £1million refurbishment to create an ‘open lobby’ which is an open space where customers can eat, meet, socialize or work. This new model does away with the separate “zones” of the hotel, including the lobby, bar, restaurant and lounge, instead they are all combined into one multi-purpose space.
Some of the main features of this new arrangement include high-speed Wi-Fi, a “To Go” café where food and drinks can be obtained at all hours, a colorful and chic dining area as well as a lounge style featuring an E-bar allowing guests to use power outlets and a wireless printer.

Gavin Webster, General Manager of the Holiday Inn Oxford hotel, said: “I am delighted to welcome guests to our brand new Open Lobby area. There are so many options and areas to plug in or off, our business and travel customers will love what we have.
“The new open lobby will also appeal to local Oxford residents and networking groups as a desirable space to meet, or just pop in for a Starbucks coffee at our new cafe. Customer satisfaction is a top priority for me. and my team, and this renovation allows us to offer our best service without any barrier between us and the customers.”
One of the main assets of this hotel is its proximity to Blenheim Palace, one of Oxfordshire’s biggest attractions.
