IHG Strengthens Leading Position in Luxury & Lifestyle Segment

IHG Hotels & Resorts (IHG), one of the world’s leading hotel companies with 19 brands and boosted by its award-winning IHG One Rewards loyalty program, today underlines its growth in the Luxury & Lifestyle segment.

Currently, IHG boasts one of the largest Luxury & Lifestyle portfolios in the world, consisting of six acclaimed brands that represent 22 percent of its global pipeline* – nearly double its stake from just five years ago.

IHG has driven its ambition forward through a combination of strategic expansion, dedicated Luxury & Lifestyle expertise and significant investments in its wider enterprise platform to fuel brand awareness, consideration and loyalty.

Globally, IHG has transformed its Luxury & Lifestyle portfolio through notable acquisitions of Six Senses, Regent Hotels & Resorts and Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants; the growth of its iconic InterContinental Hotels & Resorts and Hotel Indigo brands; and the launch of Vignette Collection. IHG’s brands in the segment globally span more than 800 open and pipeline hotels, of which nearly 260 are in the Americas.

IHG also supports acceleration in the region – its largest – through a newly formed Luxury & Lifestyle Americas team of experts dedicated to boosting the company’s regional growth in the segment.

Putting Luxury & Lifestyle in Focus

In the Americas, IHG remains focused on several core areas to supercharge its Luxury & Lifestyle growth:

• Enhancing Expertise: IHG realigned its dedicated Luxury & Lifestyle Americas leadership team to streamline key capabilities across operations, sales, commercial, marketing, design, food and beverage, and more. The expert team driving growth, commercial delivery and brand awareness includes the newly appointed Leanne Harwood (SVP, Managing Director, Luxury & Lifestyle Brands Americas), Kathleen Reidenbach (SVP of Commercial & Marketing, Luxury & Lifestyle Brands Americas), Ave Bradley (VP of Design & Creative, Luxury & Lifestyle Brands Americas), Peter Clarke (VP of Hotel Operations, Luxury & Lifestyle Brands Americas) and Scott Gingerich (VP of Restaurants, Bars & Events, Luxury & Lifestyle Brands Americas).

• Expanding Reach in the Americas: As demand for one-of-a-kind travel experiences grows, IHG continues to introduce and build rapport for its Luxury & Lifestyle brands within coveted urban and resort destinations, from Mexico City and San Antonio to California wine country and the Caribbean. Building off its renowned brands and world-class properties, IHG’s new branded residential model – launched and backed by dedicated and experienced design, construction and management teams – also will bring a new caliber of guests and offerings to the world’s most scenic and sought-after locations.

Establishing a New Legacy in Luxury

IHG pioneered luxury hospitality with the 1946 introduction of InterContinental Hotels & Resorts as one of the first true luxury hotel brands. Today, each of its six Luxury & Lifestyle brands delivers a rich blend of properties, locations and experiences.
