VISITORS TO SOUTH AFRICA WILL HAVE GREATER CHOICE OF HOLIDAY INN HOTELS BY END OF 1993

 BERLIN, March 8 /PRNewswire/ -- Holiday Inn franchisee, the Southern Sun Group, announced today at the ITB travel and tourism congress that it will convert six more of its existing South African properties to the Holiday Inn brand by December 1993.
 This will bring the total number of Holiday Inn hotels in South Africa to 29.
 The hotels are Inn On the Square, St. Georges and De Waal in Cape Town, the Airport Sun in Johannesburg, Maharani in Durban and Burgerspark in Pretoria. They will be converted to Holiday Inn Garden Court properties.
 In addition, nine of the remaining 15 Holiday Inn hotels in South Africa will be converted to Holiday Inn Garden Courts this year. This is in line with Southern Sun's strategy of developing high quality, affordably priced, selected facilities hotels in key locations throughout South Africa.
 Commented Tim Clarke, executive vice president and managing director, Holiday Inn Worldwide's Europe/Middle East/Africa region: "Southern Sun has been a Holiday Inn franchisee for many years and as such appreciates the benefits of being linked with an international brand such as our own. The further development of the Holiday Inn brand in South Africa is beneficial to the chain as a whole, widening the distribution and marketing reach of the brand."
 "The Holiday Inn Garden Court concept has been a hit in South Africa since the first one began operating in Bloemfontein in February 1992," said Ron Stringfellow, managing director of the Southern Sun Group. "I believe the success of this Holiday Inn brand extension has been that the hotels offer exceptional quality accommodation at very affordable prices, appealing to both local and international travelers."
 There are currently 24 Holiday Inn Garden Court hotels, of which 16 are in Europe and eight are in South Africa. They are designed to appeal to cost-conscious travelers who expect first-class contemporary accommodations and service at value prices.
