InterContinental Hotels Group will take over management of the former Four Seasons Hotel Pudong in Shanghai and reopen it as the Regent Shanghai Pudong on May 16.

The hotel will be the first Regent to open since IHG acquired the luxury brand in early 2018. 

All existing reservations for the Four Seasons will be automatically forwarded to and honored by the Regent Shanghai Pudong.

IHG will also take over management of the property’s branded residences, which are located on floors above the hotel in the high-rise building.

The Regent opening comes as IHG starts to resume normal operations across parts of China. As of late March, the company reported that it had around 60 hotels closed throughout the country, down from 178 at the peak of the Covid-19 pandemic in China. 

Meanwhile, IHG said it will move forward with plans to rebrand the InterContinental Hong Kong into a Regent hotel next year. The Regent pipeline also includes plans for new openings in Phu Quoc, Vietnam later this year; Bali, Indonesia, in 2021; Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, in 2023; and Chengdu, China, in 2023.
