With 119 Indigo Hotels announced to be open worldwide, the InterContinental group is now planning to open a further 104 units by 2022-2025, indicating a desire for intensive development of the chain in the coming years.
THPT Comment: Interesting that Indigo can operate hotels as small as this – 40 rooms. Boutique hotels we understand…but usually in the hands of private owners, unbranded.
