InterContinental Hotels Group has signed a deal with Shimao Group to open six new hotels in China under three brands in four cities by 2013.

This partnership will add a total of 2,100 guest rooms to IHG’s Greater China pipeline which is already the largest in China. The hotels will carry the InterContinental Hotels & Resorts, Crowne Plaza Hotels & Resorts, Holiday Inn Hotels and Resorts brands.

The two companies already have a previous agreement for IHG to manage a Holiday Inn in China for the Shimao Group and follow other multi-hotel arrangements including a six-hotel deal with the Chengdu International Exhibition & Convention Group, and a four-hotel deal with Shanghai Greenland Group, both signed in 2006.

Hui Wing Mau, chairman of Shimao Group said, “This is the biggest multi-brand, multi-property partnership we have signed with a single hotel management company. We could not have found a better partner than IHG to help us to ensure the success of these exciting new projects. With their international management experience, diverse brand portfolio, market-leading position, and commitment to developing the hospitality industry in China, we move forward together with every confidence that all of these hotels will have a bright future and lay the foundations for further co-operation with IHG.”

IHG will have more than 100 hotels open in China by the end of 2008 with an additional 100 hotels under development.

The six new hotels with Shimao will operate under three of IHG’s brands.
