Hotel Indigo opens first Bangkok property

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

The 192-room Hotel Indigo Bangkok Wireless Road's design incorporates vertical gardens to reflect Bangkok's iconic Lumpini Park, which is just minutes away, 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.

"Wireless Road is in the heart of the city and our neighbours include award winning restaurants, art galleries, parks, shopping malls and cultural landmarks," said Oliver Horn, GM of Hotel Indigo Bangkok Wireless Road. "This part of Bangkok has long been associated with Thailand's love of radio and the King's music. Hotel Indigo Bangkok Wireless Road gives our guests the chance to have an authentic experience of this thriving area and immerse themselves in this exciting neighbourhood, in addition to having a stylish base to relax and recharge before another day of exploring."
