IHG Hotels & Resorts more than doubles its luxury and lifestyle presence in Italy, cementing its presence in this key growth market.

The six new hotels include openings for Six Senses and InterContinental Hotels & Resorts in the capital city of Rome, and four further signings, a Vignette Collection property in Rome, and Hotel Indigo hotels in Florence, Turin and Trieste.

Eric Viale, Managing Director, Southern Europe, IHG Hotels & Resorts, commented: “The addition of these hotels across our luxury and lifestyle portfolio is a meaningful contribution to IHG’s growth in Italy, which is a key market for us. It is also a reflection of the confidence our owners have in the success of our brands, as well as the trust our guests have in the experience they deliver.

“From our upper luxury Six Senses offering and glamour of the InterContinental life, right through to the originality of our Vignette Collection brand and the boutique neighbourhood charm of Hotel Indigo, our differentiated brands are well-positioned in a country like Italy; a market where we are seeing much investment from our partners in luxury and lifestyle projects – making the most of growing consumer appetite for refined travel and stay experiences. To support that, we are proud to have increased our local development infrastructure, with the appointment of Fabrizio Piolanti, Director Development, Italy.”

While the new Six Senses and Vignette Collection properties mark brand debuts in Italy, the three new Hotel Indigo properties join a strong existing footprint in Verona, Venice, Rome and Milan:

IHG has 27 hotels* operating under six* brands in Italy including Crowne Plaza, Hotel Indigo, voco Hotels, Holiday Inn and Holiday Inn Express. There are a further seven* properties in the pipeline, all but one of which are in the luxury and lifestyle space.

*Numbers as at 31 March 2023
