IHG® (InterContinental Hotels Group) has announced the signing of Hotel Indigo® Venice - Sant'Elena. It is the third Hotel Indigo to be signed in Italy and will operate under a franchise agreement with H.n.H. Hotels & Resorts S.p.A.
Due to open as a Hotel Indigo in 2019, Hotel Indigo Venice – Sant’Elena is located next to the canal 'Rio Sant' Elena' within walking distance to the Castello district, a 15-minute walk from St Marco Square. The Castello district is one of the quieter areas in Venice and is still inhabited by locals, allowing guests to enjoy an authentic Venetian experience exploring the local shops, restaurants and historic architecture the Castello district is renowned for.
Converted from an old convent built in the 1930’s, the 77 room Hotel Indigo Venice - Sant'Elena will be composed of two wings joined in the centre of the property by a former chapel. The hotel will boast an interior courtyard and large windows with high ceilings, which draw inspiration from the local neighbourhood and existing architecture.
Just as no two neighbourhoods are alike, no two Hotel Indigo properties are the same. Each is designed to uniquely reflect the local culture, character and history of the surrounding area.
There are currently 22 Hotel Indigo hotels open and 18 in the development pipeline across Europe.
