For New York residents Pauline and Chris Walsh, 13 consecutive years of vacationing on the northwest coast of Puerto Rico means forging new friendships not only with other vacationers but also with local residents, including starting an annual softball tournament between Chris’ Staten Island softball league and softball teams in the town of Isabela.
IHG® Hotels & Resorts certainly has a lot to celebrate, starting with an incredible growth story. Over the past five years, IHG has acquired or launched six new brands: Six Senses® Hotels Resorts Spas, Regent® Hotels & Resorts, Vignette™ Collection, voco™ hotels, avid® hotels and Atwell Suites™. Most recently, IHG reached an important milestone with its 6,000th open hotel. The company looks to further expand its portfolio by 30 percent with 1,800 hotels in the development pipeline, with significant focus on growth in the luxury segment where IHG is positioned as one of the top two hotel chains.
