IHG Heralds 2 New Signings in Portugal


IHG Hotels & Resorts announces the recent signing of Convent Square Hotel Lisbon – Vignette Collection, and Crowne Plaza Caparica Lisbon.

Convent Square Hotel Lisbon is one of the latest additions to the company’s youngest brand and will be a flagship property globally. Owner PHC Hotels – Portuguese Hospitality Collection, a highly experienced national hotel management group, has embarked on an extensive redevelopment of the property which is set to open in 2023.

Built in 1242, the 121-room hotel is based in Lisbon’s Baixa District – an area populated by grand plazas and classical Portuguese architecture. The hotel is set around a majestic cloister and features a restaurant, lounge and patio area, plus leisure and wellness facilities including an indoor pool and sauna.

Crowne Plaza Caparica Lisbon will have 227 rooms comprising a mix of bedrooms, studios and apartments – providing flexibility for all types of guests. Alongside several meeting spaces, there will be rooms which can facilitate large groups and conference business including the introduction of the Studio – a bookable space for dynamic workshops and collaborative group sessions. There will also be three food & beverage areas, a wellness centre, outdoor swimming pool and 9-hole golf course.

The latest Vignette Collection signing strengthens IHG’s Luxury and Lifestyle presence in Portugal, joining established properties such as InterContinental Porto, InterContinental Lisbon and InterContinental Cascais-Estoril. Convent Square Hotel Lisbon is the latest addition to Vignette Collection’s growing portfolio and follows the signings of three other properties in Portugal: Casa da Companhia in Porto, set to open imminently, Dona Filipa Hotel and Penina Hotel & Golf Resort which are both being developed in Portugal’s Algarve region.
