Regent Hotels are now (partially) bookable at ihg.com.

Last March, IHG – owners of the InterContinental, Crowne Plaza, Holiday Inn etc brands – acquired 51% of Regent Hotels & Resorts for $39m, ie peanuts.  For comparison, the refurbishment of InterContinental Park Lane a few years ago cost three times that.

IHG had publicly been talking of buying another luxury chain but seemed to run out of options. 

The reason that Regent was so cheap is that it only ran six properties in:

  • Beijing
  • Berlin
  • Chongqing
  • Porto Montenegro (looks nice – see below – but not exactly prime tourism country)
  • Singapore
  • Taipei

….. and the Singapore property, managed by Four Seasons, is leaving the chain with Capella taking over management.

Whilst IHG has big plans, including rebranding the InterContinental in Hong Kong, they will take time.

The good news is that the five remaining Regent properties are now available for booking on ihg.com.  The best one is probably Berlin, but this was a Four Seasons until a few years ago so it clearly has a great hard product.

The bad news is that points redemptions are not yet available.  You WILL earn points from a cash stay.  Hopefully we can see redemptions available before the Summer season comes along.
