InterContinental Hotels Group , one of the world’s leading hotel companies, will expand its boutique offering in Edinburgh with the opening of a second Hotel Indigo® property. Centrally located, Hotel Indigo® Edinburgh – Princes Street shares its prime address with many popular bars, shops and restaurants in the Scottish capital.
The boutique 64-bedroom property uses Scottish heritage design to reflect the rich local culture and history — from paintings & portraits of famous authors, poets and artists reflecting the city’s rich literary heritage, to the contemporary Harris Tweed soft furnishings that decorate each room. Each bathroom features a modern walk-in shower with rainfall showerhead for guests seeking a moment to relax or reenergise.
As with all locally inspired boutique Hotel Indigo hotels, there is a destination bar and restaurant for guests and locals to enjoy. At the award-winning Twenty Princes Street restaurant, Executive Chef, Tony Sarton offers an extensive seasonal menu using local produce and “a bit of theatre,” set against a stunning backdrop of the city skyline. At Juniper, the bar’s expert mixologists are known for experimenting with the best spirits available, locally sourced ingredients, homemade juices and infusions, serving unique flavour combinations such as the hugely popular ‘Ordinary Madness’ cocktail.
Named a 2016 UK holiday hot spot, and home to the world-famous Edinburgh International Festival, Scotland’s vibrant capital has become one of the hottest tickets in Europe. Nestled between Edinburgh’s Old and New Towns, the hotel provides a gateway for those wanting to soak up the culture, nightlife and entertainment in the city. Nearby historic attractions, include the Scott Monument and the National Portrait Gallery, a unique array of designer shops and quirky independent retailers.
