What is the one thing that you look for when choosing a stay for a business trip? Is it the brand that takes precedence or the amenities that helps you deal with busy business days? We will share a few tips here along with a complete review of Holiday Inn Express Sector 50 Gurugram.
Yes, that’s the hashtag for the IHG group of business hotels meant for short stays, business travel and transiting travellers! And we happened to get a good taste of the amazing hospitality at Holiday Inn Express Gurugram Sector 50 while on our way to the Himachal for an aimless, carefree, budget backpacking trip!
You may be wondering how does an international chain of business hotels fits into the picture of a backpacking trip?
The secret to our random travel plans being successful largely depends on how we start the trip. A pleasant stay for all earthly comforts at the beginning and the end of a trip. Ensuring we start and end with good sleep, comfortable living and good amenities is a crucial part of being able to detach from work life and be ready to go back to it after a trip.
We are not exactly budget backpackers, but the idea of backpacking holds true even for us. You take all your belongings in a backpack, and you wander off, stay at hostels on the go and try to do everything in your own, with as little expenses as you can manage.
However, for city dwellers like ourselves, we will be lying if we said we don’t like being a little extra for staying in good hotels only. Hence, IHG hotels came to our rescue, offering a very reasonably priced stay with amenities one expects from a business hotel, and made us #MoreThanReady for our rough and tough journey ahead.

Review checklist and our rating for HIEX Gurugram:
Transfer – 4.5/5
If you are staying within the Aerocity then this is not going to matter. However the Sector 50 hotel arranges for airport pick up and drop 24×7 so you can make use of it no matter what hour you land in New Delhi.
Comfort – 4/5
Business hotels have comparatively smaller rooms but what caught our attention was the neatness of design in each room at HIEX Gurugram. Carefully designed and curated for the weary business traveller, their rooms are super cozy!
Despite the International Hotel Chain tag, the rates of HIEX group of hotels is surprisingly reasonable. Club it with your corporate ID or IHG Reward points and you can have a stay for as low as just Rs. 2000! The IHG hotels offer many rewards, loyalty benefits and offers to registered members.
