InterContinental Hotels Group New Hotel Openings in Canada for 2020 - 13 hotels in the works


IHG (InterContinental Hotels Group) is a large worldwide hotel chain best known for their Holiday Inn and Holiday Inn Express brands. IHG however comprises of 14 brands in total and well over 5,700 hotels Worldwide. They have a significant presence here in Canada with nearly 200 hotels from coast to coast.

They are planning to grow that presence by opening another 13 hotels across our nation in 2020. These are the hotels and their anticipated opening dates (of course these dates are subject to change):
With the exception of one hotel in Alberta and one in Manitoba all of IHG's planned openings for 2020 are in Ontario. Unlike other years there aren't any real stand out hotels this year - we were really hoping we'd see that first Avid hotel open up but that appears to be pushed back to 2021. If I were to pick any standouts it would be the Holiday Inn & Suites in Guelph and the combined Holiday Inn Express with Candlewood Suites in Kingston. If you are planning a stay at any of these hotels listed above let us know as we'd love for you to do a review for us (paid of course)!

Overall this is a higher amount of new hotels opening compared to 2019 which had 7 slated openings. It is great to see the brand continuing to grow in Canada. Based on IHG's reports there are at least another 24 hotels planned in Canada over the next few years.


Remember to take advantage of all the possible IHG Rewards Club bonus points offers if you plan on staying at any of these new IHG hotels or any other IHG hotels for that matter. This includes the up to 4x points promotion for stays February 15 - May 15, 2020. Be sure to register for that offer here. You can find this and many other promotions listed on our IHG Rewards Club Bonus Points page.
