Hotel Indigo has announced it is opening its first property in Chester, set to open later this year under a franchise agreement with Castlebridge Hospitality.
According to the hotel brand, the new 75-room hotel will combine the “local character and charm” with “vibrant colours and textures”, giving the hotel a residential look and feel.
The building has been designed by architects Franklin Ellis, taking inspiration from three key elements of the city; the material layers of its architecture, the 1897 Eastgate Clock and the Chester Racecourse.
Bethan Johnston, general manager, Hotel Indigo Chester, said: “At Hotel Indigo we believe in providing more than just a good night’s sleep, we want to create an experience as unique as the neighbourhood in which we are found. It’s really important to us that we reflect the community around us and offer a personalised stay that is tailored both to the city and the guest.
“It’s a high end boutique experience but without ever being stuffy, we will offer top quality service that, like Simon’s food, is unintimidating, relaxed and welcoming. We believe we will offer something different to any other hotel in Chester.”
Partner at Franklin Ellis Architects, Ben Dudley, added: “It’s been a real joy to be involved in this hotel and signature restaurant project. Like all Hotel Indigo properties, this one is inspired by the city it’s located in and seeks to reflect the surrounding architecture and character. We have added unique elements to the interiors that are relevant to the area, including artwork of local landmarks and items that are made locally.”
