|| IHG signs first Hotel Indigo in Italy ||
I am starting to become an indigo convert...would definitely stay at one in Rome if it opened. I only hope the rooms are not toooo small.
There is apparently a new Indigo in London somewhere in South kensington that is supposed to be very nice. Anyone stayed there yet?
Interesting- is this a conversion from another hotel?
If you mean the hotel indigo @ earls court/south Kensington, then yea I did stay there. Good location, just across the earls court tube station. Nice rooms especially in the junior suite that I got upgraded to. Breakfast was not tasty though and the check out line is uber long because there is usually only one staff member manning the front desk.
I paid 120 pounds and I thought the price was totally acceptable for a hotel in that area for price to value ratio. Unfortunately I didn't take any photos; just a video of my room. Ohh scratch that, I did take one picture of a framed photo of my idol mark knopfler from dire straits on the wall adjacent to my room!
yes that's the one I heard about from an ICHG exec. I met in China. He was classifying it as an updated generation of the Indigo chain.
I'm curious now about whether I should choose this new location to try in May 2014 or go with the Intercontinental De La Ville. I might do 2 nights at both places to compare.
The IC has a wonderful location.
The IC does have a wonderful location, I agree. In my opinion the feeling will be completely different though: the IC has a great breakfast area over looking the courtyard but it's got more of a classic feel to it and the staff can be sometimes topsy-turvy. They are either very nice or really moody. The classic rooms are in desperate need of a renovation. I've been there about 4 times.
Can't comment on the Indigo, but like you I will be sure to book a stay there to see what an Italian Indigo hotel is like.
If you can get a good deal- the Hassler (across the street from the IC) is my favorite hotel in Roma- really wonderful. Check LHW.com as sometimes the offfers are also very reasonable.
Slight correction......hassler is almost next door on the same side of the street with an even better view of the spanish steps
