The owner of Holiday Inn, Crowne Plaza and InterContinental hotel chains announced on its website today that the company is halting all of its operations in Russian Federation.

But the company remains “focused on supporting our teams in Russia and in Ukraine, in line with our commitment to care for our people and the communities in which we operate,” IHG added.

The Southeast Asia & Korea offices are in Singapore, Australasia offices in Sydney, Japan offices in Tokyo, India Middle East & Africa offices in Dubai, and the Greater China offices are in Pudong, Shanghai.
