Robert Shepherd, chief development officer Europe, IHG, said: "The German hotel market is accelerating at pace and we are well positioned to take advantage of the appetite for branded growth.

"57% of the market is unbranded, so there is a lot of opportunity for IHG to add value with our international brands. Several of our signings in the last few months have been with long-standing partners of IHG, who have signed multiple development agreements with the company. It’s a great start as we head into this quarter."

IHG has 64 hotels in Germany and 33 in the pipeline, including 53 Holiday Inn brand family hotels open with 32 in the pipeline.
