There is something going on with the latest InterContinental opening in Rome. The hotel and IHG have closed new reservations until June 1, 2023, but it did open this past week.
The hotel opening was significantly delayed, and it was pushed out several times this year, usually by a month. The most recent opening date on IHG’s website was May 2, even when reservations were no longer available until June 1.

You cannot currently book the hotel for earlier arrival dates than June 1.
Room Availability On June 1:
But there are 18 room types available on June 1.
IHG Was Recently Canceling Reservations:
There is likely a delay in readying the hotel, and they are running late but have decided to open it for existing reservations but not allow new ones.
Communication from the hotel and IHG has been awful throughout the spring. Some have had their reservations canceled and told to reaccomondate themselves.
It is not uncommon for new hotel openings to be delayed, but this behavior doesn’t build any trust from loyalty program members to book them before they are open and ready for business.
