Atlas Hotels owns and operates branded hotels in key business and leisure locations.

In 1996 the company was formed and went on to open its first hotel, Holiday Inn Express Warwick - Stratford upon Avon, just one year later in 1997. Over the course of the next five years we built a further 15 hotels and established ourselves as a key player in the limited-service hotel market.

2005 saw the group expand rapidly with the acquisition of 17 Holiday Inn Express hotels from within the franchisee community. This growth also saw a significant shift in the central structure of the company with new specialist departments being established to support the growing portfolio of hotels.

The string of acquisitions continued in 2006 with hotels in Leeds and Dartford joining the group.

Holiday Inn Express Lincoln City Centre marked the company's return to construction when it launched in 2008 and this was followed by Hampton by Hilton Liverpool City Centre in 2010.

2014 proved to be another landmark year in our history when we acquired 13 Holiday Inn Express hotels and the management of the unbranded Portsmouth Park Hotel which has subsequently been rebranded as a Holiday Inn Express and opened in February 2016.

In 2019, we opened Holiday Inn Express Exeter - City Centre and work commenced on our new-build Holiday Inn Express Bicester, set to open in late 2020. At the start of 2020, we took over Holiday Inn Edinburgh City West and this will undergo a significant refurbishment programme and rebrand as a state-of-the-art Holiday Inn Express. 

Atlas Hotels has ambitious growth targets and continues to seek to meet them through, acquisition, new development and extension of existing hotels.
