IHG Hotels & Resorts (IHG), welcomes guests to experience a relaxed and purposefully different stay – where quality meets affordability. Garner hotels – a new midscale brand made with character – reaches exciting growth milestones with two new U.S. openings in Macon, Ga., and Oklahoma City, Okla., as well as plans for global expansion now underway.

Garner is positioning itself as a leader in the midscale conversion space. Introduced in August 2023, Garner opened its first property last December in the Seattle suburb of Auburn, Wash. within three months of its on sale date. Since then, franchising availability has been announced for Mexico and Canada will be available by the end of March. Plans to expand across the EMEAA region (Europe, Middle East, Asia and Africa) are also underway with a recent LOI signing in Japan between IHG and Axe Management Partners to convert three hotels to the Garner brand in Osaka.

Karen Gilbride, VP, Garner hotels, said: “We took a flexible approach to Garner, which was to create a brand that could accommodate different spaces and still put travelers’ needs first. To have our global expansion underway and three hotels open five months from launch – with both trusted, existing owners and those new to the IHG Hotels & Resorts family of brands – speaks to the vast potential and opportunity for the future growth plans we have set for Garner.”

Garner’s recent milestone openings and signings represent the latest progress in the brand’s plan to open more than 500 hotels in the U.S. alone over the next decade. These properties include:
