InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG®), one of the world’s leading hotel companies, has announced the opening of Hotel Indigo St. Petersburg – Tchaikovskogo. The hotel marks the debut of its boutique brand, Hotel Indigo®, in Russia.
Located amongst the stunning architecture and historical prestige of Russia’s capital of culture, Hotel Indigo St. Petersburg - Tchaikovskogo is in the heart of the historic centre between the Neva and Fontanka rivers, the Summer Garden and Tavricheskiy Garden – an ideal spot for guests wanting to explore the city. The Fontanka River with its palaces and parks is said to be one of the most beautiful rivers in St Petersburg and the main street of Nevskiy Prospect is just ten minutes away.
As IHG’s boutique brand, every Hotel Indigo property is designed to reflect the local neighbourhood. From the building’s design to the hotel’s artwork and locally inspired menus, every Hotel Indigo is unique to its surroundings. Hotel Indigo St. Petersburg – Tchaikovskogo’s 119 bedrooms feature floor-to-ceiling murals inspired by the neighbouring Summer Garden, the Foundry metal works and river embankments. The street, Tchaikovskogo, was renamed in 1923 after the famous ballet and opera author, Tchaikovsky who was a student nearby and his influence is evident in the hotel through the décor of the hotel suites and corridors. These spacious hotel suites provide breathtaking panoramic views of the city and the river Neva. To reinforce the local neighbourhood feel, the interior décor of the hotel’s wellness studio and pool is derived from the mansions that line the Tchaikovskogo street and the splendid Summer Garden.
Guests can enjoy the city’s cultured lifestyle with a cocktail in the hotel’s stylish Afisha Bar where the bar staff are also knowledgeable art-concierges and passionate about their city. Guests can make use of the free Wi-Fi throughout the hotel and enjoy their own selection of music through the iPod docking station in their bedrooms.
Viktoria Shamlikashvili, owner of Hotel Indigо St.Petersburg-Tchaikovskogo, “Located in the heart of St. Petersburg, the hotel is near the Summer Garden, the State Russian Museum, and opposite the first metal works. As a result, Hotel Indigo St. Petersburg – Tchaikoyskogo is a great opportunity to create a uniquely designed hotel in harmony with its local neighbourhood."
Tom Rowntree, IHG's vice president brand management upscale and luxury brands, Europe, “Hotel Indigo St. Petersburg - Tchaikovskogo will be the first Hotel Indigo to open in Russia. Located in the centre of Russia’s capital of culture, the property truly encapsulates the style and charm of this historical city for guests to enjoy, and we look forward to welcoming guests to this new hotel. We currently operate 13 Hotel Indigo properties in Europe, with 15* more in the pipeline.”
