    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.
     
  3. There is apparently a new Indigo in London somewhere in South kensington that is supposed to be very nice. Anyone stayed there yet?

    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!
     
  7. 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 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.
     
  12. Slight correction......hassler is almost next door on the same side of the street;) with an even better view of the spanish steps
