PRINCIPAL was a collection of award-winning hotels in major city centre location throughout Britain. Recently acquired by InterContinental Hotels Group, we are building on their success and adding further investment to make them even better. Many of them occupy heritage, grande dame buildings: all of them are distinctive in their own way. Our refurbishment programme will build on this and bring them into the IHG fold. Our brands have exacting standards of design, service and guest experience and each of these hotels will be re-branded to meet the needs of modern travellers with the uniqueness of Principal, yet the guarantees you can expect from IHG.
