Hotel Indigo Lower East Side opens as the 5,000 hotel in the IHG group

Travel News 01 Jan 2016

InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG) has unveiled the Hotel Indigo Lower East Side New York as its 5,000th hotel globally.

The opening of this landmark New York property takes IHG’s global system size to 5,000 hotels, in nearly 100 countries.

 

The 293-room Hotel Indigo Lower East Side New York is a joint venture between IHG and Brack Capital Real Estate (BCRE) and is IHG’s third Hotel Indigo® brand in New York City. It is located in one of Manhattan’s most attractive neighbourhoods and reinforces IHG’s leadership position in the boutique segment, the fastest growing in the hotel industry.

In December 2003, the number of IHG properties globally totalled just over 3,500. Since then, a net 1,500 hotels have been added to the portfolio, with IHG’s emphasis on quality driving guest satisfaction levels to an all-time high. This includes the hospitality industry’s largest ever brand refresh for the Holiday Inn® brand family, during which IHG removed more than 1,000 properties across the brand’s estate and re-launched a further 3,300.

To mark the occasion, IHG has released details of several other recent landmark hotel openings around the world. Each opening contributed to IHG breaking through the 5,000-hotel milestone and forms part of IHG’s ‘5,000 Club’.
