IHG rebrands over 100 properties under Sonesta badge

InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG) will rebadge 103 properties in the US, Canada and Puerto Rico under the Sonesta brand.

A total of three InterContinental, five Kimpton, 11 Crowne Plaza, three Holiday Inn, 20 Staybridge Suites and 61 Candlewood Suites will leave the IHG portfolio following the end of an agreement between IHG and Service Properties Trust’s (SVC), which owns a 34 per cent stake in Sonesta.

The move will bring the Sonesta portfolio to nearly 200 properties worldwide, of which over 160 are located in the US.

“This new agreement with SVC reinforces our continued evolution as a global hotel operator and brand and we look forward to introducing our existing loyal guests, as well as new ones, to all the destinations within our significantly expanded portfolio,” said Carlos Flores, president and CEO of Sonesta International Hotels Corporation.
