INTERCONTINENTAL Hotels Group (IHG) is expanding its presence in Japan with the recent addition of three more hotels to its portfolio.
Up north in Hokkaido, the group has launched the ANA Holiday Inn Sapporo Susukino in Sapporo hot on the heels of the conversion of ANA Holiday Inn Kanazawa Sky in March.
The 178-key hotel has completed a major renovation and now sports refurbished guestrooms and lobby, and a new fitness centre.
IHG also converted two ANA hotels into ANA Crowne Plaza properties this month.
The 186-room ANA Crowne Plaza Kumamoto New Sky was rebranded on April 16 and is well connected to other major hubs by Kyushu shinkansen, including Osaka, Kobe, Kagoshima, Nagasaki and Fukuoka.
Meanwhile ANA Crowne Plaza Wakkanai was rebranded on April 23. Along with ANA Crowne Plaza Kumamoto New Sky, ANA Crowne Plaza Wakkanai join IHG’s 15-strong portfolio of ANA Crowne Plaza hotels in Japan.
According to an IHG press release, the company is the largest hotel operator in Japan with 33 properties across four brands.
