Following our pilot with the Chengdu Urban Rivers Association in China, where we made significant steps to save water in our hotels - today, on #WorldWaterDay2018, we’re excited to take this further. This time, we’ve partnered with The Rivers Trust who will help us achieve more sustainable water usage across our hotels in the UK. Just another step towards being a positive force for change around the world. #TrueHospitality IHG Planet CR http://ihg.cm/YD8JmS

#IHIF2018 wrapped up today with even more insight and learning from the hospitality industry on how to provide a great service. Our VP of Design & Engineering, Michael Walsh talked about how we at IHG are really challenging the preconceptions of a standard business hotel to deliver inspiring settings for our Crowne Plaza Hotels & Resorts brand.
‘The experience here has been different from being in the classroom’… ‘I haven’t really looked back’… ‘I enjoyed it, I like working in this place’...
Just some of the comments we’ve had from more than a thousand students across the UK who took part in #StudentTakeover week in IHG hotels, @holidayInn and @crowneplaza. As our Managing Director for Europe, Karin Sheppard said, who had met with many of the students directly, ‘we’ve really given them a sense of what they can do with their careers if they join a hotel company like IHG.’ See what they have to say. #TrueHospitality.
Shaking up business travel across Europe, we’re introducing bold, innovation-led designs into Crowne Plaza Hotels & Resorts. Unveiled today at The International Hotel Investment Forum, 2018 in Berlin where industry leaders are gathering this week, visitors can experience and interact with the new designs using virtual reality, including special features from our flagship hotels such as the ‘Plaza WorkSpace’ and ‘WorkLife Room’. And you’ll soon be able to experience the new look in reality at the Crowne Plaza London - Heathrow, Crowne Plaza Hamburg - City Alster and in Paris. http://ihg.cm/Yw7JQY

‘’My mum raised me with the idea that if you want to have things, you need to work for it. I grew up in middle-class family in Washington D.C. I learned from an... early age that nothing in life comes for free. At thirteen I started working after school at a gas station as a cashier and I would contribute to the household. When I turned 18, I applied for the United States Army and I became a paratrooper. The army taught me so many things but most of all it taught me how to grow from uncomfortable situations.
When my contract in the army ended I started working as an auto mechanic. After a few years I got tired of that so I started think about other options. Every day on my commute to work I would pass by the Mariott. Inside of the hotel there was a little shop where I would sometimes buy some snacks. The hotel looked like a much more pleasant place to work than the garage I worked in so I applied for a job as over night desk agent and to my surprise they hired me. I really started at the bottom but I enjoyed working there.
After four years I left the job and I started to work for another hotel brand called Kimpton. I worked really hard and ended up getting promoted. Last year when all of a sudden I got a phone call and was asked if I was interested in moving to Amsterdam to open their first hotel I didn't need to think about it. Sometimes it is still hard to grasp. I came a long way.‘’
