New Hotel Indigo Opens in Edinburgh

InterContinental Hotels Group PLC, a UK-based owner, manager and franchiser of hotels and resorts, has opened a new Hotel Indigo in Edinburgh, Scotland.

The new 60-room hotel is located in an 18th century building on York Place in Edinburgh, and combines five residential properties. The building has distinctive features, including decorative stairwells and cupolas.

The hotel rooms have complimentary Wi-Fi and stocked refrigerators with complementary snacks and beverages, and the other hotel amenities include a business centre, a 24-hour fitness centre, housekeeping and laundry services, a concierge service, and a bar and restaurant named the Turquoise Thistle, which is claimed to serve classic and modern Scottish dishes with a contemporary twist.

On advance bookings, guests can currently benefit from an introductory room rate of GBP114.00 per night, but most of the standard hotel package rates will commence at GBP126.00, which is inclusive of accommodation, full Scottish breakfast, VAT and a 24-hour parking at Craig James Walk.

Intercontinental Hotels Group said that the hotel’s interior design reflects the Georgian terraces of the local area.

The new property is the company’s second in Scotland, with Hotel Indigo Glasgow having opened in Glasgow last year. The brand also owns other properties in the UK, including those in Birmingham, Liverpool, London Paddington; London Tower Hill; and Newcastle.
