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.

    The Willard InterContinental
    Washington, DC
    4.5-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 4036 reviewsTripAdvisor (4036)

    The massive Willard sits at the heart of everything D.C.; the National Mall and all of the most recognizable monuments are within walking distance. And recent guests say The Willard InterContinental's inside is just as impressive as its surroundings, particularly the massive marble columns and intricate chandeliers in the lobby. Elegant decor extends to The Willard's accommodations, which feature eye-popping red accents, wood furnishings and luxurious amenities like flat-screen TVs, individual climate controls and fully stocked minibars. To ensure a restful night's sleep, request a room that looks west, facing the Washington Monument rather than 14th Street. And after a long day of sightseeing, you can relax at the Elizabeth Arden Red Door Spa or grab a bite to eat at one of the on-site reastaurants. If you participate in InterContinental's Rewards Club, you can accrue or redeem free perks and discounts by choosing to stay here.

    InterContinental Washington D.C. - The Wharf
    Washington DC, DC
    4-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 300 reviewsTripAdvisor (300)
    Free WiFi

    Positioned along the historic Washington Channel in southwest Washington, InterContinental Washington D.C. - The Wharf sits amid brand-new shops, restaurants and bars. All 278 accommodations come equipped with Nespresso coffee makers, minibars, 50-inch smart TVs, complimentary Wi-Fi access and spa-like bathrooms. Suites include extra space and high-end perks like Bose speakers, river views and $100 food and beverage credits. That credit is best used at Kith/Kin, the property's modern dining venue, where guests can feast on breakfast, lunch and dinner items influenced by cuisines from Nigeria, Jamaica, New Orleans and more. Recent guests praise the modern decor, the room size and the dining options in and around the hotel, as well as the nearby music venue, The Anthem. But, some past visitors note that the property's location is farther from major attractions than they anticipated. Thankfully, the hotel runs a complimentary shuttle to and from some of the district's monuments and museums. Keep in mind that because this is an InterContinental property, members of the IHG Rewards program can earn and redeem points by choosing to stay here.
