IHG to open hotel in Leicester Square

InterContinental Hotels Group has confirmed the opening of Hotel Indigo London - One Leicester Square.

It will be the fourth property in London under the Indigo brand and 11th in the UK.

The hotel will operate under a franchise agreement with Criterion Capital, the first venture for the pair.

Due to open in late 2017, the hotel will have 95 guest rooms and a 'destination' rooftop bar and restaurant with views of central London.

Andrew Shaw, associate vice president of development UK&I, IHG, 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."

There are currently 21 Hotel Indigo hotels open and 18 in the pipeline across Europe.

Additional signings include two Indigo hotels in Manchester plus properties in Milan, Dundee, The Hague,
Dresden, and Belgrade.
