IHG Expands Luxury Portfolio with InterContinental Resort in Chennai

InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG), one of world’s leading hotel companies, today announced the signing of the management agreement for InterContinental Chennai Mahabalipuram Resort with Adyar Gate Hotels Limited.


When it opens later this year, InterContinental Chennai Mahabalipuram Resort will join InterContinental Mumbai Marine Drive to be the second hotel under the company's luxury brand in India. The signing of the 106-room InterContinental Chennai Mahabalipuram Resort follows closely behind the recently announced deal between IHG and Adyar Gate Hotels Limited for Crowne Plaza Chennai Adyar Park.

 This marks the fourth hotel in the company's development pipeline in Chennai, cementing IHG's leading position as one of the largest international hotel operators in the city when the four hotels (around 900 rooms) across four brands open by the end of next year: InterContinental, Crowne Plaza, Holiday Inn and Holiday Inn Express. The company currently has one hotel open in Chennai: Holiday Inn Express Chennai Mahindra World City.
