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.

    InterContinental Presidente Mexico City
    Mexico City
    5 miles to city center
    4.0-star Hotel Class
    4.0-star Hotel Class
    Situated within the fashionable Polanco district, the InterContinental Presidente Mexico City is a prime hub for business travelers. Yet with its deluxe Hela Spa and close proximity to some of Mexico City's top restaurants and shops, tourists will find their needs met here, too. Past guests note that the guest rooms could benefit from a facelift, but thanks to ongoing renovations (upgrades began in 2014), many accommodations have been remodeled. Travelers especially recommed booking a corner room facing the park to mitigate disruptive outside noise and enjoy impressive Chapultepec Park vistas. Regardless of which room you choose, you can count on staple amenities like minibars, coffee makers, rainfall showers, flat-screen TVs and views of the city skyline or park. And while this InterContinental property boasts six eateries (including New York City-style The Palm Restaurant), lodgers recommend exploring around the neighborhood to sample authentic Mexican fare. If you're an IHG Rewards Club member, you can accrue or redeem points by choosing to bed down here.

    • Free Breakfast

    • Free WiFi

    Fans of the InterContinental brand say this business-friendly hotel delivers a first-rate experience while maintaining an unpretentious atmosphere. Though it's situated in Santa Fe – approximately 13 miles southwest of downtown Mexico City – the Presidente InterContinental Santa Fe Mexico's location also beckons to leisure travelers: It neighbors one of Latin America's biggest malls, the Centro Comercial Santa Fe. After exercising your credit card, hang your hat in modern accommodations outfitted with panoramic windows, satellite TVs and minibars. Or if you've been cooped up in a conference room all day, head to the SPA by L'Occitane and Alirio Beauty Shop for a revitalizing treatment. And when it's time to fuel up, heed the advice of past visitors and sample the French fare at Au Pied de Cochon. Though past visitors note that the dishes are expensive, they give the cuisine rave reviews. The sizzling steaks at The Palm also earn a nod of approval from past patrons. If you're an IHG Rewards Club member, you can enjoy complimentary perks or accrue points for future stays here.

    InterContinental Presidente Merida Hotel
    Merida
    4.0-star Hotel Class
    4.0-star Hotel Class
    • Free WiFi

    Housed in a former mansion belonging to a Spanish general, the InterContinental Presidente Merida Hotel stays true to its colonial heritage without sacrificing modern conveniences. Located in the Palacado Monteo district, this InterContinental property sits within walking distance of the bustling Paseo de Montejo Avenue, home to stately historic buildings, shops and restaurants. Guests give special kudos to the idyllic location, but recommend sticking around the hotel for the tasty plates and attentive waitstaff at Frutas y Flores. Travelers also favor the hotel's comforable guest rooms, which are outfitted with minibars, coffee makers, flat-screen TVs and your choice of city or interior terrace views (past visitors suggest opting for the city views). But while visitors compliment the spacious digs, they aren't as complimentary of the outdoor pool, which they say is too small to actually swim in. For extra perks, like room upgrades or free nights, cash in your IHG Rewards Club points or save them for a future stay.

    While almost every property along Cancun's Hotel Zone has its own strip of shoreline, past guests praise this InterContinental resort's north-facing beach, saying the alabaster-hued sand is immaculate and rarely feels crowded. The pretty pool area with its white lounge chairs and blue umbrellas also garners rave reviews, as do the InterContinental Presidente Cancun Resort's three restaurants (though guests say that food and drinks can be a bit expensive). The property's guest rooms and suites come appointed in neutral tones and include satellite TVs, minibars and wireless internet access (for a fee). And for extra relaxation on your vacation, head to the resort's spa, which offers massages and reflexology treatments at its outdoor facilities. Plus, IHG Rewards Club members will enjoy extra perks, along with being able to earn and redeem points for choosing to stay at this spot.

    4.0-star Hotel Class
    Located about 2 miles northwest of Puebla's historic center, the Presidente InterContinental Puebla isn't necessarily the best home base for travelers, but guests don't seem to mind. This InterContinental outpost earns rave reviews for its speedy (and friendly) customer service and its Mexican and international fare served at the two on-site restaurants. And although some previous visitors bemoan the steep nightly rates here, you can cut costs with IHG Rewards Club loyalty program points. The Presidente InterContinental Puebla's 211 guest rooms and suites are fairly standard in terms of decor and amenities: Each accommodation features white linens and beige accents and comes with a satellite TV, a minibar and wireless Internet access (for a fee).

    A member of the IHG Hotels family, this sprawling resort on Cozumel, Mexico's west coast promises island visitors a stylish, yet casual getaway. And according to previous guests, this InterContinental property delivers. Flanked by half a mile of sugary shoreline, swaying palm trees and the gargantuan Palancar Reef, the InterContinental Presidente Cozumel Resort & Spa houses 218 spacious guest rooms complete with eye-catching blue, green or yellow and orange accents, flat-screen TVs, Wi-Fi access (which the $18 daily resort fee covers) and private balconies or terraces. Out on the grounds, visitors can swim in the outdoor pools, practice their backhand on the tennis courts or unwind at the spa. (For those traveling with kids in tow, be sure to spend some time looking for iguanas around the property.) Guests also praise the cuisine served at the resort's four dining venues, but most visitors credit their positive experiences here to the InterContinental Presidente Cozumel's employees. Previous travelers said that the resort's staff is nothing short of friendly and helpful. And keep in mind, guests with IHG Rewards Club memberships can use and earn points during their stays.
