    Were many of the Principal hotels in need of refurb or other work when IHG took them over?
    I note many negative comments about the condition of the Met Hotel in Leeds and the Principal York.

    Also, wasn’t there meant to be a Principal opening up in Birmingham in the last couple of years? The Grand Hotel. Would have thought that would have come under the Kimpton brand.

      Looks like The grand wasn’t part of the deal

      York is beautifully refurbished. Really don’t know what people have an issue with there. Same standards and design features as seen in Edinburgh George, now the IC.
      The Met never had the same investment before move to IHG, and it shows.

    • Rob says:

      Total opposite – the ones that carried the Principal name had seen some of the most expensive refurbishments ever seen in the UK outside London. They spent more on Kimpton Fitzroy in London than IHG spent refurbing InterCon Park Lane.

      The ones that Principal owned which remained unbranded were their future pipeline to refurbish, I think.

    Hi Rob,
    I’ve been waiting for news of the IC Rome to open and I’m hoping this will be before March 2022. On the IHG site the opening date has been slipping. Is there a source (hotel industry or otherwise) that I can check to get any update or early news of potential opening?

    • Rob says:

      Not that I know of. I’d guess your best source would be the local Italian newspapers, except they would be in Italian ….

  • Alan says:

    Decent location for voco Haymarket – easy walk from the train station and tram/bus from airport, short walk to Princes St or up the hill to Lothian Road and across to the Grassmarket. Should do well during the Fringe (although am guessing that won’t be until 2022, at least in the form we knew it).

    • Colin MacKinnon says:

      Me, I think it in the wrong place!

      With the redevelopment of the St James Centre, Jenners etc I think the focus in Edinburgh is moving away from the West End to St Andrews Sq and the Playhouse Theatre.

      So the Marriot and the Glasshouse are the places.

      “Getting off at Haymarket” used to be a local expression for premature ejaculation!

      • Peggerz says:

        I see your point Colin, with the second Edinburgh (if you accept Leith is part of Edinburgh) Malmaison to have opened on St Andrew Sq near to the Grand and awaiting the arrival of the Gleneagles’ Edinburgh offshoot and, of course the Turd hotel – otherwise known as The W Edinburgh. However the Jenners débâcle will be a long time rumbling on.

      • Erico1875 says:

        The new office/retail development at Haymarket may be interesting.
        Dalry Rd round the corner is opposite direction from typical tourist route but has some decent restaurants too. Mia’s, the verandah and a tapas (cant remember the name of)

      • Alan says:

        I can see your point although massive development at Haymarket too (steelwork now up) and handy for Murrayfield too – although must admit I’d never heard of that expression 😂

    • Chrism20 says:

      The EICC was the main reason for the Edinburgh Voco and it’s pretty much next door do it.

      • Stu N says:

        West End is becoming more and more business focused and with loss of Fraser’s and Debenhams that is only going to accelerate. East End more and more focused on leisure and retail.

        But given you can walk from one end of the city centre to the other in 20 mins doesn’t make much odds, really.
