The new Hotel Indigo Brussels – City boasts a botanical theme. The hotel in Brussels’ Little Manhattan is located near the city’s Botanical Gardens, making the theme fitting.
The property offers 284 guestrooms with floral, herbal and tropical decor. Walls and ceilings feature botanic patterns and airtight terrariums act as unique decor pieces. Bathrooms offer Art Deco touches.
“We are excited to have opened our doors in such a prominent part of Brussels. At Hotel Indigo, we want to create an experience that is truly unique to the local neighborhood. Not only are our rooms designed around the neighboring Botanic Gardens, but even our public spaces and external facade have living walls and a large selection of indoor plants. With our unique design and thoughtful touches inspired by the local history and surrounding influences, guests can get a flavor of the neighborhood through our hotel before heading off to explore the city for themselves,” said Benjamin Tenius, general manager, Hotel Indigo Brussels – City.
“Hotel Indigo is IHG’s fastest growing boutique brand and is set to double over the next three to five years. The brand is now at home in over 100 different and vibrant neighborhoods globally, which is an incredibly exciting milestone. We provide guests with the best of both worlds — the promise of a design-led hotel and the reassurance of a consistently upscale experience with the IHG name behind it,” added Mario Maxeiner, managing director, Northern Europe, IHG.
