Hotel Indigo is the ‘lifestyle / boutique’ hotel brand inside IHG. There are currently three Hotel Indigo properties in London, two in converted town houses – you get quirky room sizes, quirky layouts, modern design and a free (soft drinks) mini-bar.
IHG is now gearing up to launch the first Hotel Indigo in Paris.
It is located literally next to InterContinental Le Grand. It is one road back from Rue Scribe, which is where the main entrance of the triangular LeGrand property is located.
With just 57 rooms, this will genuinely be a ’boutique’ property. The rooms are a surprisingly decent size for Paris with the basic rooms coming in at 27 square metres. This is bigger than a Classic Room at LeGrand ….
The official opening date is currently October 15th. Reservations are being taken from that date, although there is always a risk that the date will slip. That said, as this is a conversion of an existing hotel the timetable should be relatively firm.
A points bargain …..
InterContinental Le Grand costs 50,000 IHG Rewards Club points per night.
At the moment, the Indigo is showing at 30,000 points. As often happens, IHG is offering it at an artificially low price to help fill the rooms in the first few months.
30,000 points is a fantastic deal. For comparison, some Holiday Inn properties in central Paris run to 35,000 points per night whilst a central Holiday Inn Express will be 30,000. None of those will be as central, or as pleasant, as the Indigo. The two established Indigo hotels in London cost 45,000 points per night.
You can book the hotel for up to a year in advance at this 30,000 points rate. Rooms are fully cancellable as per usual IHG reward night policy.
