IHG’s Newest Brand Announces First Property in Portugal

Leading hospitality giant IHG Hotels & Resorts has announced the signing of its first luxury and lifestyle hotel in Porto, Portugal, marking the latest addition to its newest brand, Vingenette Collection.

Set to open in late 2022, Casa da Companhia comprises 40 luxury suites in one of the most prestigious properties on Rua das Flores. The interiors have been restored to their original 18th-century design, paying homage to the historic building. 

The Casa da Companhia will offer authentic luxury within Porto’s panoramic Clérigos district with its upscale boutique feel. Showcasing a spa, fitness suite, indoor and outdoor pools and a terrace, it will be the perfect stay for guests seeking to enjoy a serene atmosphere within the city. Additionally, the new hotel’s signature restaurant is set to stand out when it debuts with a freshly revived menu. 

The new property marks the third partnership between IHG Hotels & Resorts and MERCAN Group.

“We are delighted to be announcing Porto’s first Vignette Collection signing this year, expected by the end of 2022,” said Willemijn Geels, VP Development, Europe at IHG Hotels & Resorts. The Vignette Collection is a portfolio of luxurious, distinctive, elegant and intriguing properties – characteristics all of which Casa da Companhia certainly exudes. The new hotel is in one of the best locations in Porto, in the heart of the city. We are excited to welcome guests not only to this fantastic destination but to experience Vignette Collection first-hand.”
