It was a memorable date. On 4th April 1946 Pan American World Airways launched their international hotel brand: InterContinental Hotels. First opening in Belém Brazil, InterContinental Hotels then extended a trailblazing portfolio across the world.
It became a byword for luxury travel to a jet-set generation, with an impressive guest list, from Louis Armstrong to Princess Grace. Today, with five-star hotels and resorts in 60 countries, InterContinental is a pioneer in quality, service and responsibility.
Each property offers its own distinctive style, from heritage elegance to urban chic and resorts on tropical shores.
