    Hotel Indigo® will pass the 50th property milestone with the opening of two hotels in London and New Orleans, two cities renowned for their rich history and culture, making them important markets for boutique hotels. The Hotel Indigo brand continues to be a strong growth vehicle for IHG with its strategy focused on growing top-tier priority markets and gateway cities. With a quality global pipeline of 51 hotels, the Hotel Indigo estate is set to double in size to 100 properties within the next three to five years. Hotel Indigo properties are planned in key cities including Hong Kong, which will open in early 2013, Tel Aviv, St. Petersburg, Bangkok, Riyadh, Madrid, Jakarta, Lisbon, Barcelona, Philadelphia, Chicago and New York City.

    Hotel Indigo London Kensington – Earl’s Court
    Hotel Indigo Kensington-Earl’s Court is located in the heart of the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea. The hotel design reflects the quaint locale and reanimates the stately Victorian manor that the building once was. Many of the 100 guest rooms overlook classic English gardens and the artwork captures the building’s original staircases and stained glass windows.

    The hotel’s location affords easy access to some of London’s most famous tourist attractions including the Victoria & Albert Museum, the Royal Albert Hall, the Natural History and Science Museums and royal residence Kensington Palace and is just a stone’s throw away from Kensington Gardens and Hyde Park, two of London’s most idyllic and historic parks.

    Hotel Indigo New Orleans Garden District
    Sheltered by a canopy of live oaks that line the nearby streets, Hotel Indigo New Orleans Garden District is painted with the vibrancy and history of one of New Orleans’s most historical neighbourhoods. The hotel’s design features murals displaying decorative ironwork, louvred shutters and the roots of an old live oak, with vibrant accents of purple, tangerine, teal and lime.

    Situated along the St. Charles Street Car line, the hotel is close to the renowned French Quarter, as well as the campuses of Tulane and Loyola Universities. Steeped in the history of mid-19th Century Victorian homes and the manicured English-style gardens, the 132-room hotel embraces an elegant mix of modish and classic French-style furniture.
