InterContinental Hotels Group has singed Hotel Indigo Venice – Sant’Elena.
It is the third Hotel Indigo to be signed in Italy and will operate under a franchise agreement with H.n.H. Hotels & Resorts.
Due to open as a Hotel Indigo in 2019, Hotel Indigo Venice – Sant’Elena is located next to the canal ‘Rio Sant’ Elena’ within walking distance to the Castello district, a 15-minute walk from St Marco Square.
The Castello district is one of the quieter areas in Venice and is still inhabited by locals, allowing guests to enjoy an authentic Venetian experience exploring the local shops, restaurants and historic architecture the Castello district is renowned for.
Converted from an old convent built in the 1930’s, the 77 room Hotel Indigo Venice – Sant’Elena will be composed of two wings joined in the centre of the property by a former chapel.
The hotel will boast an interior courtyard and large windows with high ceilings, which draw inspiration from the local neighbourhood and existing architecture.
Hylko Versteeg, associate vice president of development, southern Europe, IHG, commented: “We are delighted to be partnering with H.n.h. Hotels & Resorts to be opening another Hotel Indigo in Italy, especially in such a popular and iconic location as Venice.
“It is an exciting time for Hotel Indigo, Hotel Indigo Milan – Corso Monforte is set to open next year and the number of hotels open across Europe is set to double in the next three-to-five years.
“It is clear that the Hotel Indigo brand is resonating with guests and owners alike and we look forward further expanding our footprint across the industry’s fastest growing segment.”
Just as no two neighbourhoods are alike, no two Hotel Indigo properties are the same.
Each is designed to uniquely reflect the local culture, character and history of the surrounding area.
Hotel Indigo has grown rapidly since its launch in 2004 and continues to be a strong growth vehicle for IHG with a strategy focused on growing in top tier priority markets in desirable urban centres and established destinations.
