Travel News Asia Videos Podcasts Latest Travel News Asia Tuesday, 2 December 2014

InterContinental Hotels Group is to expand its portfolio of hotels in Australia thanks to a management agreement it has signed with UNIR Hotels.

After 18 years of successful management, UNIR Hotels has decided to redevelop the Rydges Hotel into a 240-room InterContinental hotel.

When the new hotel commences operations in early 2017 following a comprehensive refurbishment, InterContinental Perth will be the sixth InterContinental property in Australia.

Situated in a prime location in Perths Central Business District, the hotel is nestled amongst the citys top business and leisure facilities, including Perth Convention & Exhibition Centre, His Majestys Theatre, an abundance of boutique shops and the citys eclectic and vibrant dining scene.

Karin Sheppard, the in-coming Chief Operating Officer for Australasia & Japan, IHG said, The signing of InterContinental Perth is pivotal to IHGs expansion plans in Australasia. This hotel will be one where comfort is balanced with sophistication, and elegance does not interfere with practicality. We are delighted to be working with UNIR Hotels to bring the InterContinental brand to Perth, complementing our existing distribution in Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide and the Gold Coast.

InterContinental Perth will be the third IHG property in the city, joining Holiday Inn Perth and Crowne Plaza Perth.
