Regular readers may remember that Rhys reviewed the Hotel Indigo in Birmingham in April.
He was, it is fair to say, a little confused. Whilst most Hotel Indigo properties take root in a converted historic building, Birmingham was on two floors of the modern ‘Cube’ development.
The hotel also had virtually no facilities apart from its restaurant.
There is no gym, pool or lobby lounge area and Rhys felt it was more like a serviced apartment than a hotel. The hotel originally had access to a commercial gym in the same building but this closed during the pandemic.
It seems that IHG and/or the owners decided that it was best for everyone if the plug was pulled. It has now been rebranded as the Cube Hotel and is not linked to IHG or indeed any major brand.
If you are still interested in staying there because of the location or because you liked the Indigo decor, you are best to book via this page of Hotels.com and pick up Hotels.com Rewards stamps for your stay.
