IHG to boost worldwide portfolio

InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG) will open more than 25 Kimpton hotels across 20 new global destinations including Edinburgh, Mexico City, Paris, Barcelona and Shanghai over the next three to five years.

Since IHG acquired Kimpton in 2015, the group has been a driving force behind the worldwide growth of the brand.

New openings include Kimpton Da An Hotel in Taipei, and Kimpton Charlotte Square Hotel in Edinburgh, both due to open this spring.

“With IHG’s scale and network of owner relationships, we’ve unlocked the global growth of Kimpton Hotels & Resorts,” says Elie Maalouf, Chief Executive Officer, Americas, IHG.

“We have flagship hotels now open in London and Amsterdam, a series of fantastic hotels slated to open this year including our first in Asia, and a growing pipeline of projects in key markets around the world,” adds Maalouf.

Together with Hotel Indigo, IHG’s boutique portfolio totals almost 170 hotels globally, with almost 120 more hotels in the development pipeline.
