Intercontinental Plans Fifth Hotel: Indigo
Intercontinental Hotels Group is opening its fifth hotel in Costa Rica, a 100-room, three-story boutique property in Santa Ana, west of San José.
Announced last year as a Holiday Inn Express, the hotel will now be Hotel Indigo, after the brand proved successful in Mexico, the United States and Canada, IHG said in a statement released this week.
This will be the first Hotel Indigo in Central America. IHG has built 19 other hotels under the same brand, beginning with one in the U.S. city of Atlanta, Georgia, in 2004. Sixty more are under construction, IHG said.
Intercontinental is planning to have the Santa Ana hotel open in the first three months of 2009, and will build its property near the office center Forum II.
