    Hotel Indigo continues to grow in Europe with the signing of the first Hotel Indigo in Wales, Hotel Indigo Queen Street Cardiff.Hotel Indigo Queen Street Cardiff will be managed by Sanguine Hospitality Ltd, who have four other Hotel Indigo properties in their portfolio, including Hotel Indigo Liverpool and Hotel Indigo Birmingham.

    IHG’s Senior Vice President for Development and Design in Europe, Robert Shepherd, said that the signing in Cardiff continued the brand’s strong growth throughout Europe. The signing follows the opening of a second Hotel Indigo in Scotland (Hotel Indigo Edinburgh) and a second Hotel Indigo (Hotel Indigo Berlin Centre Alexanderplatz) in Berlin this month.

    Hotel Indigo Queen Street Cardiff will be located in Dominion’s House, found on popular pedestranised Queen Street. The 92-room hotel will be a seven minute walk from Cardiff Castle, while Millennium Stadium, the regenerated harbour area and city-centre corporations are all nearby.

    Each Hotel Indigo property is uniquely designed to reflect the community, character and history of the surrounding area. Inspiration for Hotel Indigo Queen Street Cardiff will be drawn from the community’s Victorian heritage. Cardiff Castle, Bute Park and Park House will also inspire the interior design.

    Every Hotel Indigo features a high quality bar and restaurant that is open to both guests and locals. Hotel Indigo Queen Street Cardiff will include a 280m2 restaurant and bar area on the building’s top floor.

    All Hotel Indigo properties in Europe offer free wi-fi throughout the hotel as a brand standard. Hotels also offer 24 hour room service and access to 24 hour fitness centre.

    There are 44 Hotel Indigo hotels around the world and 53 in the development pipeline, which will open in the next three to five years.
