A global company with 12 hotel brands. With over 5,000 hotels and 744,000 rooms in nearly 100 countries around the world, we know hospitality. Our vision is to become one of the great companies in the world by creating Great Hotels Guests Love. We will deliver this through our portfolio of preferred brands, our talented people and best-in-class delivery systems. At the heart of our culture is a commitment to act responsibly in everything we do.
IHG’s family of hotel brands has a powerful heritage that guests know and love, with hotels that are instantly recognised by millions around the world.
From the first Bass brewery in 1777 to one of the world’s leading hospitality companies, IHG’s history is one of pioneering people and new ideas, built on a foundation of consistency, trust, innovation, caring and resolve.
In April 2003, InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG) was officially formed following Six Continents PLC’s separation of the group’s hotels and soft drinks businesses from the retail business (named Mitchells & Butlers plc).
Over the last decade, IHG has worked relentlessly to build its brands, talented people and delivery systems and underpin it all by our responsible business practices.
In 2016, IHG has over 5,000 hotels in nearly 100 countries around the world. IHG’s goal is to create Great Hotels Guests Love; its brands are in 13 of the 20 largest hotel markets with more guest rooms than any other hotel company in the world.
