IHG Signs with Amapa Group to Convert Historic Palace Building into Hotel Indigo in Milan's Duomo Neighborhood
October 19, 2016 7:57am
Scheduled to open early 2018 under a franchise agreement with Amapa Group, the historic palace building will be converted into a hotel featuring 55 rooms, a destination restaurant, courtyard and a leisure and fitness centre. Situated in the city-centre, just ten minutes from Milan’s Duomo and La Scala the hotel will be in a perfect location for guests to explore the local neighbourhood and its design will draw on inspiration from the local area, which has established a long history in the fields of fashion, textile and design.
Hylko Versteeg, IHG’s Associate Vice President of Development for Southern Europe, commented: “Boutique remains the fastest growing segment in the industry and Hotel Indigo® has expanded rapidly since launching in 2004, opening its doors in 15 countries around the world. Here in Europe our strategy is focused on growing in key urban centres and established destinations, which describes Milan perfectly. Amapa Group is already a partner of ours and we’re pleased to be extending our relationship with them to bring Hotel Indigo to Milan.”
Ezio Romani of Amapa Group “We’re excited to add another one of IHG’s world-leading brands to our portfolio and Hotel Indigo is the perfect fit for this location. This intimate hotel will be a great addition to Milan, showcasing the best the Duomo neighbourhood and Fashion District has to offer – something that guests who truly want to get to know the city wouldn’t want to miss out on.”
Amapa Group currently has one other property with IHG, Holiday Inn Express Rome East.
With Hotel Indigo properties around the world, the brand is growing rapidly and set to double in size to over 120 hotels within the next three to five years. In June 2016, IHG announced the highest number of openings for the brand since 2012, including Hotel Indigo® Krakow - Old Town – the brand’s debut in Poland and Hotel Indigo® Singapore Katong. There are currently 19 Hotel Indigo properties open in 8 countries across Europe with a further 14 hotels in the pipeline.
IHG has 31 hotels open across Italy, including Hotel Indigo Rome – St George, with a further hotel in the development pipeline, InterContinental® Venice Palazzo Nani, which was signed earlier this year.
