22 July, 2013 - IHG (InterContinental Hotels Group), one of the world's leading global hotel companies, is proud to announce the signing of a management agreement with Société Foncière Lyonnaise (SFL) for the development of Hotel Indigo Paris – Opera, France. Located just a few steps from Opera Garnier and the InterContinental Paris Le Grand, this addition follows the recent signings of the Hotel Indigo boutique brand in Rome and Brighton.

The property is owned by Société Foncière Lyonnaise (SFL) one of the largest real estate owners in France. The property, currently trading under an existing brand, will undergo major renovation and refurbishment to open as a 57 room Hotel Indigo in 2014.

Each Hotel Indigo hotel is uniquely designed to reflect the neighbourhood, character and history of the surrounding area. The décor of Hotel Indigo Paris – Opera will mirror the classic architecture and stunning interior design for which Paris is renowned.

"This is our first managed Hotel Indigo in Europe and we are delighted to be working with SFL on this property. It's a fantastic opportunity to showcase the Hotel Indigo brand in a flagship location. Hotel Indigo is a great fit for European cities like Paris due to the brand's ability to fit in with the aesthetics of an area and highlight the richness of a culture and local flavours," said Brice Marguet, IHG's Director of Development, France and North Africa.

"SFL welcomes this collaboration with one of the world's leaders in the industry," said the owner of SFL.

Every Hotel Indigo features a high quality bar and restaurant that is open to both guests and locals. All Hotel Indigo properties in Europe offer free Wi-Fi throughout the hotel as a brand standard. Hotels also offer 24 hour room service and a fitness centre.

As at 31st March 2013 there are currently 11 Hotel Indigo properties open in Europe with another 14 in the pipeline for Europe, which will open in the next three to five years.
