The father of Holiday Inn and Crowne Plaza said there had been a “significant disruption”

InterContinental Hotels Group has reported that portions of the company’s technology systems have been subject to “unauthorized activity.”

In a statement late Tuesday, the parent company of brands including Holiday Inn and Crowne Plaza said: “IHG’s booking channels and other apps have been significantly disrupted since yesterday (September 5), and this continues.

“IHG has implemented its response plans, is notifying the relevant regulatory authorities, and is working closely with its technology providers.

“External specialists have also been hired to investigate the incident.”

The statement says the group is working to “fully restore all systems as soon as possible” and to assess the nature, scope and impact of the incident.

He added: “We will support hotel owners and operators as part of our response to the continued service disruption. IHG hotels can still operate and accept reservations directly.”
