IHG – standing for InterContinental Hotels Group – is an extensive hotel family encompassing such well-known hospitality brands as Kimpton HotelsCrowne Plaza, Holiday Inn Hotels, EVEN Hotels, Hotel Indigo and (you guessed it) InterContinental. This hotel group's collection includes roughly 5,400 hotels across nearly 100 countries. Unlike other hotel groups – which tend to focus on only one side of the price scale – IHG offers rooms for nearly every price range, not to mention perks for loyal customers through the IHG Rewards Club program. While the InterContinental brand often targets business travelers with more money to spend, budget- and family-friendly accommodations can be found in the Holiday Inn portfolios. And mid-range rates fall under the Crowne Plaza and Hotel Indigo names, while Candlewood Suites and Staybridge Suites offer long-term stay accommodations for those on the road for an extended period of time. The following IHG properties appear on our Best Hotels in the USA, Best Hotels in Canada, Best Hotels in Mexico and Best Hotels in Europe rankings lists.

    InterContinental San Francisco
    San Francisco, CA
    0.9 miles to city center
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4 based on 3263 reviewsTripAdvisor (3263)
    Like its sister property – the InterContinental Mark Hopkins – the InterContinental San Francisco is geared mostly toward corporate travelers. But that doesn't mean that it's all about business: After all, it's located in San Francisco's hip South of Market neighborhood. Guest rooms cater to business and leisure travelers alike with high-speed internet access (for a fee), LCD TVs, iPod docking stations and minibars. Recent guests said that the decor is nothing to write home about, but that the views from the floor-to-ceiling windows were breathtaking – request a room on a higher floor to truly take advantage of the scenery. Meanwhile, the contemporary American cuisine served at the hotel's Michelin-star rated restaurant garners praise as well. If you're only looking for a drink, the hotel's on-site Bar 888 keeps the grappa (its specialty) flowing.What's more, if you're a member of the IHG rewards program, you can earn or redeem points for staying here.

    Kimpton Sir Francis Drake
    San Francisco, CA
    0.7 miles to city center
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 3.5 based on 3739 reviewsTripAdvisor (3739)
    Exceptional service defines San Francisco's Kimpton Sir Francis Drake Hotel, ideally located near Union Square. From the front desk employees to the doormen, recent guests say the staff consistently impresses visitors with its friendly and professional manner. And the physical structure, particularly the lobby with its gilded ceilings, achieves a regal atmosphere that guests relish. Scala's Bistro and Bar Drake also make sure that visitors want for nothing, providing gourmet treats (made from seasonal, local ingredients) and drinks. Recent travelers claim that their fairytale stays at this Kimpton brand hotel were only disrupted by noise (coming from the outside surrounding area) and the somewhat small room size. But even despite the somewhat cramped conditions, most travelers found the accommodations to be visually appealing – with rich jewel tones and retro furnishings –and the in-room amenities, such as flat-screen TVs and iHome stereo systems, to be convenient. The hotel also provides high-speed Internet, which Kimpton Karma loyalty club members can access for free.

    InterContinental Mark Hopkins San Francisco
    San Francisco, CA
    0.7 miles to city center
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4 based on 2811 reviewsTripAdvisor (2811)
    Named after one of the big players that helped form the Central Pacific Railroad, this hotel was bought by InterContinental in 1973. Despite its history, some say the hotel lost a bit of its character, with the decor looking more dated than charming. Still, many enjoy this Nob Hill hotel and the great views of San Francisco from its in-house restaurant, Top of the Mark. Not to be confused with its sister property, the InterContinental San Francisco, this hotel is especially popular among business travelers, who can use the multiple meeting rooms and take advantage of the property's business center and high-speed internet connection. Leisure travelers will appreciate the hotel's proximity to popular San Fran neighborhoods like Fisherman's Wharf and Chinatown, as well as the city's famed cable cars. The InterContinental Mark Hopkins San Francisco also offers pillow menus and Keurig coffee makers in all of its rooms and an on-site fitness center. Plus, members of the IHG Rewards Club program can use or accrue points for choosing to stay here.
