IHG Hotels & Resorts, one of the world’s leading hospitality companies, more than doubles its luxury and lifestyle presence in Italy, cementing its presence in this key growth market.

The six new hotels are a result of IHG’s commitment to sustainable growth across Europe, and they include highly anticipated openings for Six Senses and InterContinental Hotels & Resorts in the capital city of Rome, and four further signings, a Vignette Collection property in Rome, and Hotel Indigo hotels in Florence, Turin and Trieste.

Eric Viale, Managing Director, Southern Europe, IHG Hotels & Resorts, commented: “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. It is also a reflection of the confidence our owners have in the success of our brands, as well as the trust our guests have in the experience they deliver.

“From our upper luxury Six Senses offering and glamour of the InterContinental life, right through to the originality of our Vignette Collection brand and the boutique neighbourhood charm of Hotel Indigo, our differentiated brands are well-positioned in a country like Italy; a market where we are seeing much investment from our partners in luxury and lifestyle projects - making the most of growing consumer appetite for refined travel and stay experiences. To support that, we are proud to have increased our local development infrastructure, with the appointment of Fabrizio Piolanti, Director Development, Italy.”

While the new Six Senses and Vignette Collection properties mark brand debuts in Italy, the three new Hotel Indigo properties join a strong existing footprint in Verona, Venice, Rome and Milan:
  • NOW OPEN: Six Senses Rome – Opened on 16 March, the hotel offers 12 different room types across its 96 keys, with options including secluded rooms with courtyard views and suites facing the bustling Via del Corso and neighbouring San Marcello al Corso Church.
