IHG Hotels and Resorts has opened its fourth property in Japan under the Hotel Indigo brand, located in Tokyo.
The 272-room Hotel Indigo Tokyo Shibuya is located within walking distance of the famous pedestrian crossing, Shibuya Scramble, with linear design features in the public spaces nodding to the landmark.
The hotel’s design is themed around ‘kaleidoscopic urban jungle’, with fashion-led artworks throughout the 12th floor reception adorned with denim and leather motifs.
Rooms include a selection of vinyl records, reflecting the music culture in Shibuya, and offer views of Tokyo Skytree and Mount Fuji on a clear day.
Dining spaces include Gallery 11, which offers Mediterranean-Japanese fusion cuisine and walls adorned with artworks, and coffee shop Shibrewya, which also serves waffles shaped like Hachiko – a Japanese Akita dog known for his loyalty to his owner. The hotel also boasts a terrace complete with a DJ booth.
The Hotel Indigo brand debuted in Japan in 2020 with the openings of Hotel Indigo Hakone Gora and Hotel Indigo Karuizawa, followed by Hotel Indigo Inuyama Urakuen Garden in 2022.
The brand is also due to debut in Nagasaki next year.
