IHG’s boutique brand Hotel Indigo has opened a second Edinburgh property.
Located in the city’s main shopping district on Princes Street, the 64-room hotel’s design reflects its Scottish heritage with paintings of famous authors, poets and artists and modern Harris Tweed furnishings.
The hotel also includes the Twenty Princes Street restaurant, helmed by former head chef at the Old Bailey, Tony Sarton. The Juniper bar joins the hotel’s food and beverage offering, serving cocktails using locally sourced ingredients, home-made juices and infusions.
Nearby attractions include the Scott Monument, the Royal Scottish Academy and the National Portrait Gallery, as well as the main shopping thoroughfare on Princes Street.
Tom Rowntree, IHG’s vice president for Hotel Indigo, Europe, said: “Boutique is the fastest growing segment in our industry and we have a strong pipeline for Hotel Indigo next year, with 14 hotels due to open in vibrant city locations around Europe.”
There are currently 20 Hotel Indigo properties in Europe, while IHG has nine properties in Edinburgh.
