IHG Signs With Inmobiliaria Vistamar to Debut InterContinental® and Hotel Indigo® Brands in Peru

United Kingdom, Denham. October 31, 2019

IHG® (InterContinental Hotels Group), one of the world's leading hotel companies, today announces the debut of both the InterContinental® Hotels & Resorts and Hotel Indigo® brands in Peru, with two new properties now under construction in the capital city of Lima. The Hotel Indigo Lima Miraflores will also be the brand's first property in South America. Both hotels are expected to open in early 2022 and will be owned by Inmobiliaria Vistamar and managed by IHG.

The InterContinental Lima Miraflores and Hotel Indigo Lima Miraflores will be located next to each other in the vibrant epicenter of Miraflores, steps away from Larcomar, the city's bustling commercial center which offers the finest dining, entertainment and shopping in Lima.

Elie Maalouf, Chief Executive Officer, Americas, IHG, said: "Our portfolio of brands continues to expand throughout Latin America thanks to relationships with passionate owners such as Inmobiliaria Vistamar. Peru is thriving with one of the strongest economies in the region, and we are pleased to introduce these leading global luxury and lifestyle brands to business and leisure travelers in the market."

Gonzalo de Losada, Chief Executive Officer, Inmobiliaria Vistamar, said: "We are very proud to be partnering with IHG to bring these two world-renowned brands to Peru, and build on InterContinental's legacy in Latin America. We look forward to providing luxury and unique experience-led stays to the most discerning travelers in the world."

With its stunning location and views overlooking the Pacific Ocean and incorporating a modern design, the InterContinental Lima Miraflores will rise 20 stories and feature 322 elegantly appointed guest rooms, including 29 opulent suites, a fine dining restaurant, two bars with a rooftop lounge, a spa and fitness center. The property will also offer its exclusive Club InterContinental lounge, 1,000 square meters of meeting space and will include the largest outdoor hotel pool in Lima, measuring more than 17 meters (56 feet) in length.

The Hotel Indigo Lima Miraflores will be a boutique hotel featuring 76 guest rooms, including six luxury suites, an upscale, locally inspired restaurant and bar, and a fitness center. Additionally, the hotel will offer lush gardens for guests of both hotels for outdoor functions and will include underground parking with street access to the area's main thoroughfare on Alcanfores Street.

Two of the most prestigious architecture and design firms from South America are leading the architecture and hotel design of both properties. Fuenzalida & Swinburn Architect and Associates is the project architect and German Margozzini - Arquitectura Diseño Interior Hospitality Spa is overseeing the hotels' interior design and décor.

Peru continues to be one of South America's fastest-growing emerging markets, providing a strong economic environment for IHG's diverse portfolio of brands. IHG currently has three hotels open in Peru's capital city - the Crowne Plaza Lima, the Holiday Inn Lima Airport, and the Holiday Inn Express Lima San Isidro - and will open the Holiday Inn Lima Miraflores by year end 2019. Most recently, IHG also celebrated the opening of the Holiday Inn Piura, the first full service hotel in the northwestern region of Peru.

IHG's strong growth momentum for both the InterContinental and Hotel Indigo brands continues around the globe, including Latin America and the Caribbean where there are currently more than 240 IHG-branded hotels (over 40,000 rooms) with another 60 hotels (7,153 rooms) in the development pipeline. Since the opening of the first location in 1949 in Brazil, the InterContinental brand has expanded to more than 200 locations, while the Hotel Indigo brand now has more than 100 hotels open worldwide and is set to double its footprint over the next five years.

Mobile Technology: Meeting Tech Expectations

What once seemed futuristic is now the norm, owing to the escalating developments in mobile technology, and hotels must continue to innovate in order to meet guest expectations. In a recent study from Mower, 65 percent of guests said they would gladly pay more for a hotel that provides the mobile technology they deem essential. The same study shows that 44 percent of travelers are more likely to book a smart hotel, and nearly 7 in 10 want to use smart devices provided by the hotel. And how do guests wish to use all this technology? A majority expressed a desire for mobile check-in and check-out, and mobile payment options. They also want to be able to stream content from their phone to the TV; to make service requests of the hotel staff; to control in-room lighting, temperature and sound; to order food and beverages; and to request a wake-up call - all from their mobile device. Guests also expressed preferences for robust wi-fi and convenient device charging ports throughout the hotel. They also appreciate the use of hotel branded apps which allow a guest to book a room, access loyalty programs, receive discounts and rewards, and even use the app to choose the room, floor and view they prefer. Some hotel apps also allow a customer to track their charges throughout their stay, rather than waiting to receive a bill at the end. Finally, mobile tech lounges are popping up more frequently in some hotels. These lounges offer guests the opportunity to perform tasks like airline check-ins or access to local info guides, but they also provide a place where guests can comfortably get some work done outside their room. The January Hotel Business Review will report on what some hotels are doing to meet their customers' expectations in the mobile technology space.
