Hotel Indigo to open Earl’s Court property

The Barkston Gardens Hotel close to Earl’s Court tube station is to be rebranded under IHG’s boutique Hotel Indigo offering later this year.

Hotel Indigo currently operates two properties in London’s Paddington and Tower Hill districts, and according to IHG’s website reservations are now open for the Hotel Indigo London Kensington – Earl’s Court from October 15.

The hotel will be housed within the current Barkston Gardens Hotel, located just off Earl’s Court Road and a few minutes’ walk from the station, with direct links to Heathrow in the Piccadilly line.

According to the hotel’s website the property is currently undergoing a refurbishment programme, and IHG’s website says the property will offer 101 guest rooms across seven floors.

IHG recently announced plans for the first Hotel Indigo in Wales (see online news May 21), and has opened properties in Edinburgh and Newcastle this year.
