InterContinental Hotel Group on Monitourism

InterContinental Hotels Group

From the first Bass brewery in 1777 to today’s hotel company with more guest rooms than any other, the InterContinental Hotels Group’s history is one of pioneering people and new ideas.

The InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG) is one of the world’s leading hotel companies. IHG operates nine hotel brands - InterContinental, Crowne Plaza, Hotel Indigo, Holiday Inn, Holiday Inn Express, Staybridge Suites, Candlewood Suites, EVEN™ Hotels and HUALUXE™ Hotels and Resorts – and operates hotels in three different ways - as a franchisor, a manager and on an owned and leased basis. The IHG business model focuses on managing and franchising hotels, whilst their business partners own the bricks and mortar. Franchising is the largest part of IHG’s business: over 3,955 hotels operate under franchise agreements. Although, they also manage 689 hotels worldwide and own 10 more.

Today, the mission of the InterContinental Hotels Group is to make their brands the first choice for guests and hotel owners by building the hotel industry’s strongest operating system focused on the biggest markets and segments where scale really counts. As such, IHG’s operating system includes advertising and marketing campaigns, 11 global call centers, 13 local language websites, a global sales team of more than 17,600 professionals, IHG® Rewards Club - the world’s largest hotel loyalty scheme with over 76 million members - and all the advantages that IHG’s global hotel distribution and scale brings to brand awareness. Currently, IHG maintains 679,000 rooms in over 4,600 hotels in nearly 100 countries and territories around the world.
