The 151-room hotel will be the fifth Hotel Indigo in London and is expected to open in early 2021. Located in the heart of the city, the group said the property brings a “brand defining hotel” to IHG’s pipeline.
Established in 2004, Hotel Indigo is IHG’s upscale boutique brand and has over 100 hotels across more than 15 countries. The brand is set to double its portfolio presence over the next three to five years and continue its growth as one of the largest boutique brands.
Jon Colley, head of development, UK and Ireland at IHG, said: “We are excited to bring Hotel Indigo London – Clerkenwell into portfolio. We are seeing strong growth in the boutique market in the UK and this hotel strengthens our position in the capital.
“This signing will join the newly opened Kimpton Fitzroy London and Hotel Indigo London – 1 Leicester Square to build out our boutique presence in the UK’s capital.”
Heather Seckington, owner and director, Omenport Developments Ltd, added: “We’re proud to be partnering with a leading hospitality company such as IHG.
“We value IHG’s systems and expertise and we’re confident the strength of the Hotel Indigo brand will make this hotel a success. We know the brand will fit right into the Clerkenwell neighbourhood, which is a hotspot for creative talent and technology start-ups.”
