IHG® Signs with H.n.H. Hotels & Resorts S.p.A. for Hotel Indigo® Venice - Sant'Elena
January 9, 2018 12:10pm
IHG® (InterContinental Hotels Group), one of the world’s leading hotel companies, has announced the signing of 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 S.p.A.
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 S.p.A 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 3 to 5 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.”
Luca Boccato, CEO of H.n.h. Hotels & Resorts S.p.A commented: “We are very pleased to be working with IHG to open this hotel. We have managed and owned the Hotel Sant'Elena since 2005 but we believe that the high quality and services of the Hotel Indigo brand will add tremendous value. Venice is a unique location that has a lot to offer travellers and we look forward to bringing the local neighbourhood to life through the design and décor of Hotel Indigo Venice Sant’Elena.”
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.
There are currently 22 Hotel Indigo hotels open and 18 in the development pipeline across Europe.
