• IHG China brand to launch by 2013

InterContinental Hotels Group has said that its new brand, due to launch in China, would be "upper upscale" and would open in 2012 or 2013.

Keith Barr, Greater China regional MD, said: "There is rising demand for something that is truly Chinese – and not the Western view of what is Chinese". The lobby will be grander, the main restaurant will be more Chinese and it will include a teahouse as the social hub.
