IHG is significantly expanding its presence in Italy, with several new hotels coming to the country between now and 2025.

Here’s what you need to know!

2 Hotels Now Open For Guests

IHG announced on May 10, 2023, that it would more than double its luxury and lifestyle offerings in Italy from 4 to 10 properties by 2025.

Here’s what you need to know about the new hotels:

  • The Six Senses Rome opened in mid-March with 96 rooms. Some offer courtyard views and suites facing Via del Corso and San Marcello al Corso Church. 
  • InterContinental Rome Ambasciatori Palace has 160 rooms and suites and multiple dining options serving up Italian and American cuisine. Additionally, the hotel’s rooftop bar will be the only rooftop in the city open year-round.
  • Hotel Indigo Florence will open in the second half of 2023, though it’s unclear exactly when. This hotel will have 160 rooms.
  • Hotel Alexandra, Vignette Collection is expected to open on Rome’s Via Veneto in the first half of 2025 with 81 guest rooms, a restaurant, and a gym. Hotel Alexandra will become IHG’s first Vignette Collection property in Italy. 
  • Hotel Indigo Turin will have 50 rooms when it opens “in the coming months.”
  • Hotel Indigo Trieste – Palazzo Kalister is expected to open in late 2025 and is a conversion of a palace to a hotel.

“The addition of these hotels across our luxury and lifestyle portfolio is a meaningful contribution to IHG’s growth in Italy, which is a key market for us,” said Eric Viale, Managing Director of Southern Europe at IHG Hotels & Resorts.

The Six Senses and Vignette Collection brands are debuting in Italy, while the other brands can be found across Italy.

IHG has a sizable presence in Italy, with 27 hotels under 6 brands in the country. These include Crowne Plaza, Hotel Indigo, voco Hotels, Holiday Inn, and Holiday Inn Express. An additional 7 properties are currently in the pipeline, IHG says.

How To Book

As mentioned above, the Six Senses and InterContinental hotels are now open for guests, and both are participating in the IHG One Rewards program. However, rates aren’t cheap, with 1-night stays at the InterContinental starting at 120,000 points per night and the Six Senses starting at a whopping 285,000 points per night for dates this summer.

Still, if you’re short on IHG One Rewards points, there are several ways to quickly increase your balance if you’re really interested in visiting Italy. IHG offers 2 personal and 1 business credit card, all of which are issued by Chase.

Hot Tip:

You can also transfer Chase Ultimate Rewards or Bilt Rewards points to IHG One Rewards at a 1:1 ratio.

Final Thoughts

This is pretty exciting news for IHG fans, as the hotel chain is beefing up its premium offerings in Italy — and some hotels are already open for guests. While award nights aren’t the cheapest, it may be worth draining your balance for a stay at one of Rome’s hottest new hotels!
