IHG signs London’s Westminster deal

The
InterContinental Hotels Group has signed a 20-year management contract with the
Splendid Hotel Group for a new 254-room six-storey IHG property in London’s Westminster. 

Occupying
the former 19th century Queen Anne’s Chambers, the InterContinental
London Westminster is set to open in late 2011. The property will be the second
IHG hotel in the capital and is the biggest acquisition for the company to
date.

“Despite
the tough economic times, the fact that we continue to sign major deals is
testament to the strength of our brands. We’re adding 5,000 rooms in the
UK in the next two to three years.
The InterContinental London Westminster will open in time for the Olympic Games
in London in 2012,” says IHG’s president for
Europe, Middle East and Africa, Kirk
Kinsell.

Splendid
Hotel Group is an existing IHG franchisee with Holiday Inn hotels in Manchester and London.
