Pan American World Airways opened the first InterContinental hotel back in 1946, making it the world's oldest international hotel brand. Celebrities and dignitaries, such as Ava Gardener, Louis Armstrong, President Ronald Reagan and Britain's Prince William, have all been guests of InterContinental hotels. Because InterContinental properties (there are more than 180 of them across more than 60 countries) are individually owned, each exhibits its own distinct personality reflective of its location. What's more, many InterContinental hotels – such as The Willard InterContinental in Washington, D.C., and the InterContinental London Park Lane – are housed in historically significant buildings, which only adds to the ambiance. However, every InterContinental hotel adheres to the brand's standards, touting high-end amenities and fine dining establishments. Guests who frequently stay at InterContinental Hotels Group properties can sign up to earn free stays, transportation discounts and even guided tours through the IHG Rewards Club program. Many InterContinental properties have earned spots on our Best Hotels in the USA, Best Hotels in Mexico, Best Hotels in Europe and Best Hotels in Canada rankings. U.S. News-ranked InterContinental properties are listed below.

    • Free WiFi

    Guests consistently praise this Intercontinental for its impeccable service, great amenities and historic, palatial interiors. Though it's a bit removed from the city in the Weesperzijde neighborhood, the hotel's address didn't seem to faze recent guests, who enjoyed the property's quiet atmosphere. Rooms here are pristine and classic, fitting in with the building's 19th-century roots. Along with antique furniture and French wallpaper, guests can expect to find stocked minibars, flat-screen TVs with DVD players, luxury bath amenities, Illy coffee makers and 24-hour room service. A few warn, though, that some rooms seem a little dated and could use a refresh. And here, dining is an attraction all its own. The hotel's signature restaurant, La Rive, gets high praise for its fine French-Mediterranean fare. The hotel also has a more casual spot, the Amstel Brasserie, a lounge and bar that serves lunch and dinner. What's more, the property features a fitness center for those looking for a little rejuvenation in between sightseeing. Guests can unwind at the indoor pool, get their blood pumping with the help of a personal trainer or simply indulge in a massage.
