Hotel Indigo, a boutique hotel brand of InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG), has announced its expansion in Germany with the signing of Hotel Indigo Düsseldorf-Victoriaplatz.
The 126-room hotel is a conversion from the Lindner Rhein Residence into Hotel Indigo.
Expected to open in 2013, the Hotel Indigo Düsseldorf-Victoriaplatz will operate under a franchise agreement with LFPI Hotels Management Germany.
IHG Germany development director René Schappner said Düsseldorf is an ideal city for the Hotel Indigo brand.
"Düsseldorf is an international business and financial centre, known for its trade and fashion fairs. The city is also known for its cultural offerings, including the Academy of Art and the NRW-Forum in art, architecture and design," Schappner added.
According to IHG, the signing of the new hotel follows the recent opening of two Hotel Indigo properties in Berlin in 2012, the Hotel Indigo Berlin-Centre Alexanderplatz and Hotel Indigo Berlin-Centre Hardenbergstrasse.
Every Hotel Indigo features a bar and restaurant for both guests and locals, said the company. All Hotel Indigo properties in Europe offer free Wi-Fi throughout the hotel, in addition to 24hr room service and access to a gym.
There are 46 Hotel Indigo hotels around the world and 52 in the development pipeline (as of 30 June 2012). The new hotels are expected to open in the next three to five years.
There are nine Hotel Indigo properties in Europe, with 11 more in the pipeline.
