Seems that InterContinental Hotels Group has finally decided that they need to more strongly push the name of the chain IHG and follow what Marriott and Hilton have both already done for years.
You will soon have “AN IHG HOTEL” added to all various IHG brands. I would assume that they exclude top tier brand of InterContinental.
You can access IHG here.
What does IHG means for most people? Absolutely nothing. At least in the case of Marriott and Hilton it is their “mother” brand.
Perhaps AN INTERCONTINENTAL HOTEL would have been a stretch in case of these lower brands but Marriott and Hilton don’t seem to care to be associated with their select service ones.
