Hotel Indigo London - One Leicester Square is due to open in “late” 2017 when it will feature 95 rooms and a rooftop bar and restaurant with views across central London. Guests will also have access to a gym.
The new property will be the fourth Hotel Indigo in London and its design is being “influenced” by the existing property’s art deco style, as well as Leicester Square’s history and surroundings.
Andrew Shaw, IHG’s associate vice president of development UK & Ireland, said: “London is a core driver of demand within the UK. The increase in international inbound travel to London is driving a need for new hotels and giving us the opportunity to grow our portfolio.
“Hotel Indigo London – One Leicester Square will be a valuable addition to the brand, in a globally recognised London location. We are looking forward to working on the hotel with Criterion Capital.”
Hotel Indigo, which was launched in 2004, is going through a period of major expansion with 75 hotels currently open and another 76 properties in the “pipeline”.
Other new properties include Hotel Indigo Milan - Corso Monforte, which is due to open in early 2018, and two hotels in Manchester – Piccadilly Gardens and Victoria Station, scheduled to open in late 2018 and early 2019 respectively.
