IHG 2018 New Hotel Openings in Canada – 12 hotels in the works including Canada’s first Kimpton Hotel

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 13 brands in total with well over 5,000 hotels Worldwide and have a significant presence here in Canada with over 175 hotels from coast to coast.

They are planning to grow their presence by opening another dozen hotels across our nation in 2018. These are the hotels and their anticipated opening dates (of course these are subject to change):

The majority of the hotels are bigger city locations and I would say the most anticipated hotels of the bunch would be the Holiday Inn Calgary Airport and by far the biggest opening of them all will be the Kimpton Toronto Downtown. This will be the first Kimpton hotel in Canada. The Kimpton brand was acquired a few years ago by IHG and the Kimpton Karma rewards program was just integrated into IHG Rewards this year. Kimpton, regarded as the first boutique hotel brand, opened their first hotel 30+ years ago and were famous for lots of little touches at great hotels. The Toronto hotel with 189 rooms will be located in the Bloor-Yorkville area (280 Bloor Street West) across from the Bata Shoe Museum and is close to the Royal Ontario Museum and other great Toronto attractions.

After this year there are at least another 31 IHG Hotels in the works for Canada.

Remember to take advantage of all the possible IHG Rewards Club bonus points offers that are on offer if you plan on staying at any of these new IHG hotels or any other IHG hotels for that matter! You can find all the promotions listed on our IHG Rewards Club Bonus Points page. At the very least the offer that should be on everyone’s radar is their Accelerate offer, although this iteration ends prior to most of these hotels opening but there will most likely be a new one out for the remainder of spring and summer!
