The hotel will have 269 rooms that are said to be inspired by the story of Dubai Creek
The InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG) has announced that its first Hotel Indigo property is to open in the Middle East in the summer of 2020. Hotel Indigo Dubai Downtown is taking shape on the banks of the Dubai Creek, close to some of the city’s main landmarks and attractions.
According to a statement, Hotel Indigo properties offer a gateway to discover some of the world’s most inspiring locations. Each hotel is said to bring the outside in, drawing from the local area to inspire every aspect of each hotel, from design to locally inspired menus.
Hotel Indigo Dubai Downtown is no exception, taking inspiration from the story of its neighbourhood areas to help guests feel part of the destination, IHG states.
“We are excited to be opening the first Hotel Indigo in the Middle East. As our first opening in the region, Hotel Indigo Dubai Downtown combines the city’s heritage with the new, fresh buzz of the ever-evolving landscape through local collaborations. We’re looking forward to sharing our neighbourhood story with you,” said Laura Eggleton, general manager, Hotel Indigo Dubai Downtown.
The statement notes that as part of the Hotel Indigo brand ethos, the hotel has supported local creatives through their close associations with the Alserkal Cultural Foundation, Tashkeel and XVA gallery. The hotel will have over 200 pieces of art and local design, as well as intricately designed carpets that adorns the hotel floors, created through a partnership with the Fatima Bint Mohammed Bin Zayed Initiative (FBMI).
