The £8m Hotel Indigo Edinburgh opened its doors this month, marking the first Hotel Indigo property for Sojourn Hotels LLP. The company acquired the property four years ago, and the refurbishment took a total of 14 months. The 60-room hotel is on York Place, on the site of the former Osborne Hotel, and in keeping with the Hotel Indigo branding standard, the interior design has a local flavour. Sales manager Craig Small told DRAM, “The interior has been massively overhauled and the location is reflected inside the hotel with pictorial recreations of famous Edinburgh landmarks like the Scott Monument and St Andrews Square, as well as capturing images of the Capital’s cultural output, like the Fringe and Beltane Festivals.” The 40-cover Turquoise Thistle Bar and Restaurant has design echoes of The Limelight Bar and Grill in its Glasgow counterpart, with a few obvious colour differences. Hotel Indigo Edinburgh does have one up on its Glasgow cousin however, in that it offers leisure facilities, including a gym.
