IHG Hotels & Resorts (IHG) has signed three new hotels in Turkey: InterContinental Grand Ankara, Crowne Plaza Istanbul Tuzla Viaport Marina and Holiday Inn Express Ankara Airport.

This trio of properties further strengthens IHG Hotels & Resorts’ growth across its Luxury, Premium and Essentials collections by adding nearly 600 rooms.

The hospitality firm has said it also “reinforces the development potential of this key growth market, which features world-class urban and resort locations that are increasingly popular with both leisure and business guests”, with IHG aiming to double its presence in Turkey in the next five years.

In partnership with Çelikler Holding, InterContinental Grand Ankara is set to join InterContinental Istanbul, Six Senses Kaplankaya and Six Senses Kocatas Mansions, Istanbul, as part of IHG Hotels & Resorts’ Luxury & Lifestyle collection. The 214-key property will feature an all-day brasserie-style restaurant and swimming pool located on a terrace with retractable roof.

Working with Oversea Trade Solutions BV, Crowne Plaza Istanbul Tuzla Viaport Marina will be located adjacent to Viaport Marina. The premium 259-room property will offer sea views from all rooms, a popular on-site restaurant and bar and meeting room facilities.
Collaborating with Asal Grup Otomotiv İnşaat Ticaret A.Ş., the Holiday Inn Express Ankara Airport is scheduled to open in 2022. The 122-room property marks IHG’s first Holiday Inn Express in Ankara.
