Business travelers, well-heeled tourists, dignitaries, celebrities and the cast of "Glee" have all called the InterContinental in New York's Times Square their home away from home. It's been a busy year for the 607-room hotel, which opened last summer, marking the largest hotel to open in New York City in nearly a decade. It is the company's high-end offering, with standard rooms costing from $350 to upward of $700, depending on the time of year. On a Tuesday morning this summer, employees were nattily dressed and impeccably coiffed, as they greeted guests and gawkers that wandered into the modern marble and stone lobby that was the setting for a scene from the "Glee" Season 2 finale. Eric Pearson, chief marketing officer for the Americas division of InterContinental Hotels Group, was on hand during a guided tour to point out the amenities that set InterContinental apart from other brands in the company's portfolio. IHG, which works with Ogilvy & Mather, Mindshare and Weber Shandwick, as well as a host of other agencies globally, also operates Crowne Plaza, Holiday Inn, Hotel Indigo, Candlewood Suites and Staybridge Suites.
