IHG Hotels & Resorts—with 19 brands in its portfolio and more than 6,000 existing hotels—introduced several new properties over the summer, including Hotel Indigo Melbourne on Flinders, Hotel Indigo Guadalajara Expo, Holiday Inn & Suites Geelong, and voco Fiorello Laguardia East.
As fall fully commences, IHG gears up for even more openings through the end of the year.
The 272-room Hotel Indigo Tokyo Shibuya debuted recently, boasting spectacular views of Tokyo Skytree and Mount Fuji. The hotel draws from the vibrant urban jungle in Japan. Each guestroom, for instance, is adorned with unique selection of vinyl records in homage to the city’s music culture. The reception area showcases fashion-led artwork, each adorned with denim and leather motifs in a nod to Shibuya’s rich fashion scene. Linear design features inspired by the city’s famous Scramble Crossing are woven throughout the hotel’s public areas.
Kimpton Hotel Theta, a peaceful retreat in the heart of Manhattan, was introduced last month. Housed within an iconic building originally designed by midcentury architect Morris Lapidus, the adaptive reuse project holds 364 rooms and features a 3,200-square-foot rooftop restaurant from TableOne Hospitality.
Scheduled for a fall debut, the InterContinental Bellevue at the Avenue is a 208-room hotel that will occupy nine floors of a 26-story tower in Bellevue, Washington’s thriving retail and cultural district. The property will include an outdoor deck and patio, a full-service spa and fitness center, and over 12,000 square feet of versatile meeting space.
The InterContinental Chiang Mai Mae Ping is also expected to open this quarter in Thailand. The 240-room property is a conversion of the Imperial Mae Ping Hotel, a stalwart of Chiang Mai’s hospitality scene for over three decades.
