Stella Awards 2022: Best Hotel Chain


IHG Hotels & Resorts

A premier hospitality brand with some 6,000 global hotels and resorts under its umbrella, IHG has continuously sought to improve its product while meeting the challenges of the times. In 2020, the chain enhanced its IHG Way of Clean to take sanitary measures to a new level in response to the pandemic. That same year saw the launch of Meet with Confidence, which provided meeting planners with flexible contract terms, zero cancellation and attrition penalties and rebates of up to 5 percent off the master bill for qualifying groups.
More recently, IHG has introduced Hybrid Solutions, which offers a host of services from attendee Covid-19 testing to wellness F&B experiences, and established a partnership with the Professional Convention Management Association to develop the Digital Event Strategist Introductory Certificate Course for Hotels and Venues.
