Edinburgh Indigo

The InterContinental Hotels Group has expanded its boutique offering in Scotland with the opening of the 64-room Hotel Indigo Edinburgh – Princes Street, its second in the city, using Scottish heritage design to reflect the country’s culture and history. 

Features include paintings and portraits of famous Scottish authors, poets and artists. Each bedroom has contemporary Harris Tweed soft furnishings while the Twenty Princes Street restaurant has a seasonal menu using local produce.

General manager Helen Gallagher said: “We are confident hotel guests, residents and visitors alike will be impressed by the dramatic transformation of this local landmark, formerly the Royal British Hotel. 

“Edinburgh’s inspiring literary heritage has been reflected throughout the hotel design and our award-winning restaurant and bar to create something truly unique and stylish.”

IHG vice-president for Hotel Indigo, Europe, Tom Rowntree added: “Boutique is the fastest-growing segment in our industry and we have a strong pipeline for Hotel Indigo next year, with 14 hotels due to open in city locations around Europe.”

The new property will operate under a franchise agreement with the Station Hotel (Newcastle) Ltd. There are currently 20 Hotel Indigo properties in Europe, including nine IHG properties in Edinburgh.
