InterContinental celebrates 75 years of pioneering luxury travel

InterContinental Hotels & Resorts has become synonymous with bold exploration, travel, and cultural discovery, having pioneered luxury travel in emerging and well-loved destinations for the past 75 years. This year, as the brand toasts its diamond anniversary, it invites guests to celebrate the joy of travel and rediscover InterContinental hotels and resorts around the world.

From now until April 2022, guests can enjoy an exciting lineup of limited-time offers ranging from sparkling anniversary celebrations to exhilarating stay experiences. As part of the 75th-anniversary initiative and IHG’s Journey to Tomorrow commitment, InterContinental Hotels & Resorts will also donate US$75,000 to Water.org, supporting 15,000 people to gain access to clean water through sustainable, locally owned, and run projects.

“We’re delighted to raise a toast with our guests, owners, partners, and colleagues to celebrate InterContinental Hotels & Resorts and everything this brand stands for – the joy of travel and the worldliness that comes from discovering cultures around the world. During a challenging period, it’s important to take time to celebrate milestones and begin to enjoy new adventures again wherever we can. The InterContinental brand has been part of many special moments throughout its storied 75-year history and continues to be a place for celebration, connection, and indulgence,” says Jane Mackie, IHG’s Senior Vice President, Global Marketing for Luxury and Premium Brands.

“The next chapter of InterContinental, as we continue to open new doors from Rome to Riyadh, will encompass a fresh 360-degree approach to the guest experience with new partnerships and innovations.”

“We are grateful to be part of the 75th anniversary of the InterContinental brand and their goal to shape the future of responsible travel,” says Michael Mayernik, Head of Corporate Partnerships, Water.org. “They are committed to changing lives with access to safe water as part of this initiative, giving women hope, children health, and communities around the world a bright future, ” he adds.

Guests can recognise personal milestones with a range of anniversary packages.

The 75th Anniversary Package will be available at select hotels and includes a personalised refreshment experience for two; for those looking for incomparable experiences, the InterContinental Diamond Stay Packages offer varied and carefully curated once-in-a-lifetime luxury moments across hand-picked InterContinental hotels.
