The world’s first truly international hotel brand, InterContinental Hotels & Resorts also took home Asia’s Leading Business Hotel Brand for the third consecutive year and Australasia’s Leading Hotel Brand for the third time. InterContinental properties in Asia, Australasia and the Pacific also claimed a plethora of wins as top hotels and resorts in their respective countries.

Bruce Ryde, Director Brand Management, InterContinental Hotels & Resorts said, “To have won 22 awards at this year’s WTA is testament to our commitment as a brand to provide guests with exceptional and authentic experiences when they stay at InterContinental Hotels & Resorts. More than half of the awards won are repeat wins, and this shows the consistent quality of our properties and shows us that as a team we are on the right track and staying true to our core brand values.”

The WTA was launched in 1993 to acknowledge excellence in the travel and tourism industry and is now in its 21st year. Heralded as the ‘travel industry’s equivalent to the Oscar’s’ by The Wall Street Journal, the awards are decided based on votes by the public and travel professionals worldwide.

“With InterContinental Hotels & Resorts making up over a third of IHG’s pipeline in Asia, Middle East and Africa, we are confident that we will continue to deliver more award winning properties in this exciting and diverse region,” added Bruce Ryde.
