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.
