HBA/Hirsch Bedner Associates designs Hotel Indigo Bangkok

InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG) brought its boutique hotel brand, Hotel Indigo, to Southeast Asia with the opening of Hotel Indigo Bangkok Wireless Road.

The hotel was designed by HBA/Hirsch Bedner Associates. HBA's goal was to design a hotel that is unique to its location by integrating the neighborhood story into the design.

The 192-room Hotel Indigo Bangkok Wireless Road is local in design, incorporating the surrounding neighborhood into the hotel. This includes vertical gardens to reflect Bangkok's Lumpini Park, which is near the property; street art style murals depicting the story of the surrounding area; and custom art pieces, such as a wall of wireless radios reflecting the area's history as the birthplace of the country's wireless radio stations.

Post COVID-19: The New Guest Experience

Join Hotel Management’s Elaine Simon for our latest roundtable—Post COVID-19: The New Guest Experience. The experts on the panel will share how to inspire guest confidence that hotels are safe and clean and how to win back guest business.

The guestrooms have spa-inspired bathrooms, locally-sourced toiletries, private balconies and complimentary Wi-Fi. Similarly on offer is the hotel's open-air infinity edge pool and deck that provides views of the city.

The philosophy of bringing the local neighborhood to life in the property extends to the restaurants and bars. On offer are Metro on Wireless, which serves Thai and Western cuisines; and the hotel's 22 Steps cocktail bar. Later in the year, the hotel will open its new dining venue, CHAR.

The Hotel Indigo brand was launched in 2004. Hotel Indigo Bangkok Wireless Road is the 62nd Hotel Indigo property to open globally and is the first of 10 to be launched across Asia, Middle East and Africa (AMEA).
