IHG signs first Hotel Indigo in Wales
IHG’s (InterContinental Hotels Group) boutique hotel brand Hotel Indigo continues to grow in Europe with the signing of the first Hotel Indigo in Wales, Hotel Indigo Queen Street Cardiff. READER COMMENTS
The 92-room Hotel Indigo Queen Street Cardiff will be managed by Sanguine Hospitality Ltd, who have four other Hotel Indigo properties in their portfolio, including Hotel Indigo Liverpool and Hotel Indigo Birmingham.
IHG’s Senior Vice President for Development and Design in Europe, Robert Shepherd, said that the signing in Cardiff continued the brand’s strong growth throughout Europe. The signing follows the opening of a second Hotel Indigo in Scotland (Hotel Indigo Edinburgh) and a second Hotel Indigo (Hotel Indigo Berlin Centre Alexanderplatz) in Berlin this month.
Design inspiration for the 92-room Hotel Indigo Queen Street Cardiff will be drawn from the community’s Victorian heritage. Cardiff Castle, Bute Park and Park House will also inspire the interior design.
“Hotel Indigo is also popular with developers. Our flexible approach to design makes it ideal for conversion properties, which are cheaper and easier to finance than new builds and can be up and running in a shorter period of time. Hotel Indigo Queen Street Cardiff will be a conversion from an existing office building,” said Shepherd, in an announcement.
Hotel Indigo Queen Street Cardiff will include a 280m2 restaurant and bar area on the building’s top floor, along with free wi-fi throughout the hotel, 24 hour room service, and access to 24 hour fitness centre.
