IHG Hotels Returns to Italy with InterContinental Rome
IHG, the world’s largest luxury travel hotel brand, plans to open InterContinental Rome in 2022, marking a welcome sign of confidence in the Italian tourism industry.
The luxury hotel will be set on the iconic Via Veneto, in the Ludovisi area of the city, close to the Villa Borghese.
The existing property - which includes 160 rooms and suites, a restaurant, bar, spa and public areas - will be restored to create a sense of discreet, modern luxury for visitors and locals alike.
Designed in the early 1900s by architect Carlo Busiri Vici in the neo-renaissance style, the palazzo building was originally home to ambassadors staying in Rome, opening as a hotel in 1993.
Guests will benefit from its proximity to the city’s wealth of art and history, thanks to a prime position less than a kilometre walk from the Galleria Borghese, the Spanish Steps and the Trevi Fountain.
The hotel can be easily reached from Rome’s Ciampino or Fiumicino international airports and is less than 10 minutes from the city’s main rail station.
InterContinental Hotels & Resorts is the world’s largest luxury brand with 213 hotels around the world. The InterContinental Rome will join a family of 34 InterContinental hotels in Europe.
