SHANGHAI-InterContinental Hotels Group has signed four new management contracts with Shanghai Greenland Group, one of the top three real estate and property management companies in China. The deals include an InterContinental hotel in Nanjing, which will be the world’s tallest hotel; one Holiday Inn property in Xi’an; and two Express by Holiday Inn hotels in Shanghai, representing a total of more than 1,400 rooms.

Last week the company signed for 4,500 rooms in Sichuan. This means IHG has now signed almost 6,000 rooms in China in the last two weeks. “This latest signing with Greenland Group comes hot on the heels of our landmark six-hotel signing in Sichuan with the Chengdu International Exhibition & Convention Group,” says IHG chief executive Andrew Cosslett. “These back-to-back multiple-property deals cement our position in China. We’re extremely optimistic about the outlook for the region.”

Asia Pacific is the fastest growing region for InterContinental Hotels Group worldwide. The Group’s portfolio in this region includes more than 160 hotels and 45,000 guest rooms under the InterContinental Hotels & Resorts, Crowne Plaza Hotels & Resorts, Holiday Inn Hotels and Resorts, and Express by Holiday Inn brands.
