AccorHotels introduces first ibis Styles Hotel in the United States

ibis Styles, the economy brand from AccorHotels has made its debut in the United States with the opening of ibis Styles New York LaGuardia Airport.

As part of AccorHotels’ continued expansion of its economy hotel brands worldwide, the global hospitality group announced the introduction of ibis Styles New York LaGuardia Airport - the first of the ibis Styles hotel in the U.S. The hotel will also serve as the flagship hotel for the brand in the country. Located at the former site of the LaGuardia Airport Hotel, the property has undergone a major renovation to cater to leisure and business travelers seeking a satisfying, comfortable, and thoroughly distinctive guest experience that plays off the vibrant culture of the city that surrounds it.  

“As the AccorHotels portfolio grows in North America, I am very proud to announce the first ibis Styles hotel in the United States,” said Kevin Frid, Chief Operating Officer, North & Central America, AccorHotels. “ibis Styles has already seen much success in Europe and South America, and we anticipate the brand to be a standout in New York as well.”

ibis Styles New York LaGuardia Airport

Like each of the 339 mid-size ibis Styles hotels distributed across 30 countries worldwide, the U.S. flagship property is stylish and distinctly imaginative. Located just across Grand Central Parkway from LaGuardia Airport, the singular design of the 93-room hotel is inspired by the New York City Subway. Design details create a lively universe, from whimsical in-wall lobby seating to throw pillows and artwork that take cues from the colorful emblems, stations and route maps found throughout the underground cultural hub. 

Guest rooms will be inspired by different subway lines – green, yellow, red, blue – with furniture suited to today’s lifestyles, including 26-inch HD LED televisions, desk areas, walls decorated with subway maps, and the majestic Sweet Bed by ibis Styles, an innovative bedding concept for the brand that offers guests unparalleled comfort with a fluffy topper, as well as a white duvet and large, light and airy microfiber pillows. The hotel similarly serves up a true taste of New York, with authentic street-inspired snacks served at the Metrocard Lounge, while making it easy for guests to take a bite out of the Big Apple, with NYC Subway card packages.
