Our History
History develops, art stands still

It was a memorable date. On 4th April 1946, Pan American World Airways launched their international hotel brand: InterContinental Hotels. Our first opening was in 1949 in Belém Brazil, then the InterContinental brand extended a trailblazing portfolio across the world.

As the world’s first international upscale hotel brand, InterContinental Hotels & Resorts has been pioneering travel across the globe for over 72 years. We’re proud to share both international know-how and local cultural wisdom with our guests at every one of our hotels — from historic buildings to city landmarks and immersive resorts.

We’ve been helping generations enjoy luxury travel for 70 years in more than 180 locations around the world. From Shanghai to New York, Paris to Tokyo, every day around the world people are discovering how they can experience luxury travel as it should be.

Worldly, refined and discerning, the qualities of the modern traveler, and the essence of the InterContinental® Ambassador recognition program. With every journey you take, whether business focused or wanderlust inspired, Ambassador enhances your stay with exceptional benefits to ensure an unforgettable experience. Complimentary weekend night certificate is valid on the second night of a paid weekend stay on the Ambassador Weekend Rate. Enjoy an upgrade to a superior room at check-in, each time you stay.
