Pyeongtaek is ready to welcome the world’s first and largest international hotel brand – InterContinental Hotels & Resorts – as it continues to grow its reputation and stature.
Scheduled to open in 2025, the prestigious 244-room InterContinental Pyeongtaek will be the first global hotel brand in the Gyeonggi Province city and form a key part of its exciting future expansion plans and long-term ambitions.
The original plan for the project was to introduce another leading IHG Hotels & Resorts brand, voco Hotels, in the form of voco Pyeongtaek. However, recognizing the increasing demand for a luxury property with even more extensive meeting space, restaurant and bars, InterContinental Pyeongtaek was born.
The result of a partnership between IHG Hotels & Resorts and Seraphim Development, the property will be ideally located for the growing number of leisure visitors to the area who are seeking a taste of The InterContinental Life, as well business travelers visiting the large number of major corporations in the vicinity, and guests of the nearby US military base, Camp Humphreys.
The introduction of the InterContinental brand to Pyeongtaek follows the city’s strong recent economic growth which has seen increased investment from tech-driven businesses, improvements to its infrastructure, and a steep rise in its population.
The new property will be the fourth InterContinental hotel in Korea and promises to be a destination in its own right thanks to its distinctive style and ambience. It will welcome city residents and travelers at its wide range of restaurants and bars, and rooftop pool with stunning views of the surrounding areas, as well as provide ample meeting space for functions and events.
InterContinental Pyeongtaek will provide a truly global experience for its guests given its unique location. Centrally situated on the Korean Peninsula near a major port, the hotel will be easily accessible by sea, express train, and car. It’s integration within the mixed-use development International Market Place, and close proximity to the Pyeongtaek Special Tourism Area and Naeri Cultural Park, will offer a heady mix of experiences for domestic and international visitors alike.
In 2021, InterContinental Hotels & Resorts celebrated its milestone Diamond Anniversary. Founded in 1946, the brand has become synonymous with modern luxury and pioneering design in unexpected locations. Having celebrated 75 years of impeccable taste and distinguished hospitality, the brand continues to grow its global footprint with stunning new opening – to date, there are more than 200 InterContinental Hotels & Resorts properties, each celebrating bold exploration, travel and cultural discovery.
IHG Hotels & Resorts is represented by four brands across nine hotels in South Korea: InterContinental Hotels & Resorts, voco Hotels, Holiday Inn and Holiday Inn Express.
