H.n.h. Hotels and Resorts to open the first Hotel Indigo in Venice

H.n.h. Hotels & Resorts S.p.A. has signed a franchise agreement with IHG (InterContinental Hotels Group) for the rebranding of the Sant'Elena Hotel in Venice.

H.n.h. Hotels and Resorts, one of the leading independent operators in the Italian hospitality industry, announced that its Hotel located in the Sant’Elena district in Venice will operate under the IHG Indigo Hotel brand.
Thanks to this partnership, IHG, one of the world’s leading hotel chains, with a diverse portfolio of Hotel brands such as InterContinental Hotels & Resorts, Hotel Indigo, Crowne Plaza Hotels & Resorts, Holiday Inn and Candlewood Suites will open its third hotel in Italy under the Hotel Indigo brand, and its first in Venice.

The Hotel Indigo Venice - Sant'Elena is set to open in 2019, following the reconstruction and remodeling works which will be completed during the year to meet the requirements of the chain’s standards.
The architectural features of the building, a former convent dating back to the 1930s that was converted into a Hotel in 2003, and its privileged location, well removed from the throngs of tourists, but still within walking distance of the city's main sights, in addition to unique spaces and high quality of services will offer guests visiting Venice a one-of-a-kind experience.
The philosophy of the Hotel Indigo brand, which rests the uniqueness of its hospitality concept on the cultural richness of the context in which the hotel is set, will be able to successfully recreate in the design and in the attention to detail the most authentic atmosphere of one of the most beautiful cities in the world.

Luca Boccato, CEO of H.n.h. Hotels and Resorts said: "We are very happy to partner with IHG. We have managed and owned the Hotel Sant'Elena since 2005 but we believe that the standards of quality and services offered by the Hotel Indigo brand can create further added value to a property that's already greatly appreciated by guests and that still has  great potential.”

Hylko Versteeg, Associate Vice President of Development Southern Europe, IHG, commented: “We are delighted to be partnering with H.n.h. Hotels & Resorts S.p.A for the opening of another Hotel Indigo in Italy, especially in a popular and iconic location such as Venice. It’s an exciting time for us, Hotel Indigo Milan - Corso Monforte is set to open next year and the number of hotels opened across Europe is set to double in the next 3 to 5 years. It’s clear that the Hotel Indigo brand is resonating with guests and owners alike and we look forward to further expanding our footprint across the industry’s fastest growing segment.”
