InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG) has announced the opening of the newly-built 98-room Holiday Inn Express Farroupilha hotel in Brazil’s southern region of Serra Gaúcha.
The hotel is integrated into Casa Perlage, a new large commercial complex that includes a convention centre, restaurants and parking.
Known as the birthplace of the Italian migration to the State of Rio Grande do Sul, Farroupilha is also the country’s main manufacturer of textiles and knitted fabrics as well as the largest producer of Muscat grapes.
Just 20 minutes from Caxias Do Sul Airport as well as the charming cities of Gramado, Garibaldi and Bento Gonçalves, the Holiday Inn Express Farroupilha allows travellers an affordable and hassle-free stay that combines comfort, convenience and value for guests.

“An ideal hotel for both business and leisure travelers, who appreciate a good value, Holiday Inn Express Farroupilha is a fresh and modern hotel close to many of the region’s main attractions.”
Designed to provide guests with everything they need and nothing they don’t, the Holiday Inn Express Farroupilha offers a 24-hour fitness centre and a business centre with three modern meeting rooms.
Guestrooms have modern design, comfortable king-sized or two twin-sized high-quality beds with a choice of firm or soft pillows for a restful night’s sleep, a sitting area with a lounge chair, TV Flat Screen, iron and ironing board, mini refrigerator and coffee machine with complimentary coffee.
The complimentary Express Start breakfast buffet features a full range of breakfast items, including a rotation of egg and meat selections, pastries, yogurt, fruit, coffee, juices, and regional dishes.
Holiday Inn Express Farroupilha will also be the first hotel in Brazil to open with IHG Connect, which delivers enhanced Wi-Fi with the fastest speeds in the industry as well as an auto recognition feature for IHGRewards Club members, so guests only need to sign in once to access hotel Wi-Fi at all IHG Connect-enabled hotels.
