IHG (InterContinental Hotels Group) is making strides against its expansion strategy in Russia, CIS & Georgia, as it opened three new hotels in recent weeks with a further five set to open over the coming months.
The new development comprises three standalone towers and is located in the exclusive Etiler residential area, close to the city's central business district. One of the towers will house Mandarin Oriental Etiler, Istanbul with 158 guestrooms and suites and 16 serviced apartments.
In advance of the opening of the first Four Seasons hotel in Spain, Christoph Schmidinger has been appointed opening General Manager to oversee the new luxury hotel set to open in late 2019.
The hotel will be incorporated within the redevelopment of the existing buildings of the Venetian Botanical Gardens which date back to the 19th century.
