The Hotel Indigo brand opened its third hotel in Italy with Hotel Indigo Milan – Corso Monforte.

The property embraces Milan’s status as fashion capital of the world, with artwork including designer sketches and vintage fashion, hat box bedside tables, sewing machine desks and bowler hat lamps. The property itself is a historic palace with coffered ceilings, paneled walls, large arches and an interior courtyard.

“It’s very fitting to have opened our doors just in time for Milan fashion week in September, one of the city’s most vibrant and exciting events. The hotel is a great example of how Hotel Indigo takes inspiration from the local neighbourhood into its design philosophy and is the perfect choice for those looking to explore Milan and immerse themselves in the fashion history of the city,” said Mauro Fiore, general manager, Hotel Indigo Milan – Corso Monforte.

The Hotel Indigo brand currently boasts more than 100 new hotels in its pipeline, with its first property in Japan set to open later in the year.

“Set to double its portfolio over the next three to five years, Hotel Indigo continues its strong growth as one of the largest boutique brands in this fast-growing segment. 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,” said Eric Viale, managing director, southern Europe, IHG.
