Historic Stratford hotel to become UK's newest Indigo

Stratford

InterContinental Hotels Group has signed a deal to open the Hotel Indigo Stratford-upon-Avon in the hometown of William Shakespeare. The hotel will operate under a franchise agreement with St James’s Hotel Group and open in early 2018.

The 92-room property will be rebranded from the historic Falcon Hotel, which is within walking distance to the Shakespeare Theatre and the Stratford-upon-Avon Train Station.

It is also a 30-minute drive from Birmingham International Airport.
