IHG (InterContinental Hotels Group) has opened its first Hotel Indigo hotel in Belgium, Hotel Indigo Antwerp - City Centre. Located in the heart of Antwerp and the diamond district, the hotel is in the perfect location for guests to enjoy the local neighbourhood.
Hotel Indigo Antwerp City Centre has 82 boutique guestrooms reflecting a small slice of the Flemish joie de vivre in their unique design. Designed in warm oak, there are touches of colour on the walls with a focus of botanical and insect motifs reflecting the surrounding bohemian neighbourhood. Known as a global style hub since the 1980's, the area is where bold, contemporary architecture intermingles with magnificent Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque buildings.
The second largest city in Belgium, Antwerp boasts cobbled lanes of architecture from as early as the 13th century. Rich with historic character, the city offers guests plenty of unique cafes, a riverside fortress and an impressive cathedral, the Onze Lieve Vrouwe Kathedraal (Cathedral of our Lady). In contrast, Antwerp also has a vibrant modern fashion and entertainment scene, hosting one of the world's finest academies for art and fashion - Royal Academy of Fine Arts.
Just as no places are alike, no two Hotel Indigo properties are the same. Bringing the outside in, every Hotel Indigo draws inspiration from the local neighbourhood – from intriguing design to locally inspired menus. The upscale, boutique brand provides guests with a launch-pad to discover some of the world's most inspiring cities and locations.
Gaétan Demoor, General Manager Hotel Indigo Antwerp – City Centre commented: "We are delighted to be the latest addition to the Hotel Indigo portfolio in Europe and to be the brand's debut in Belgium. This city has so much to offer guests and the hotel is in the perfect location. We can't wait to help our guests explore our exciting local neighbourhood."
Within walking distance of some of Antwerp's main attractions, including world-class museums, a vibrant restaurant and bar scene and great nightlife, the hotel offers complimentary Wi-Fi, an in-room Nespresso machine and an onsite restaurant, QA's Kitchen.
There are currently 24 Hotel Indigo properties open in Europe and a further 18 due to open over the next three to five years. Include two new hotels in London (Hotel Indigo London – Aldgate and Hotel Indigo London – 1 Leicester Square), hotly-tipped Hotel Indigo Dundee in the UK's first UNESCO City of Design, Hotel Indigo Milan – Corso Monforte in the centre of the fashion district, and Hotel Indigo The Hague – Palace Noordeinde which will occupy a historic bank building and former home to the Dutch national bank.
