IHG Hotels and Resorts, one of the world’s largest hotel groups, signed a management agreement with Overseas Chinese Town Holdings Company (OCT Group) for the first Hotel Indigo property in Shenzhen on 7 January 2022. This marks another strategic step to expand the presence of this upscale lifestyle brand in China's Great Bay Area.
Each Hotel Indigo property is uniquely designed to reflect the culture, character and history of the hotel’s locality to ensure no two hotels are the same. Hotel Indigo Shenzhen Overseas Chinese Town will be designed with the same philosophy in mind. A classic Venice theme is brought together with local neighbourhood culture to inspire curiosity and creativity, providing a unique choice for guests looking for personalised and a diversified experience on their journey.
Daniel Aylmer, Managing Director, IHG Greater China said, “Today marks another important milestone on IHG’s strategic partnership with OCT Group. The property, previously known as Crowne Plaza Shenzhen, was one of the first international hotels in Shenzhen. Back in 2001 we began to work with OCT to open a Crowne Plaza flagship in China. Since then our partnership has continued to flourish with the development of multiple iconic properties in Shenzhen and the Great Bay Area. We are excited to welcome it back to the IHG family, under another beloved brand. The success of Hotel Indigo takes pride in the fact that every property incorporates design elements celebrating its local neighbourhood and attractions to deliver a fun, immersive, and interactive stay experience for guests.”
Zheng Ni, Member of the Standing Committee of CPC, Vice General Manager, OCT Group Co., Ltd., said, “This is a great opportunity to introduce a fresh new hotel brand into the Shenzhen market, and this partnership with IHG for Hotel Indigo will strengthen our portfolio.”
The Hotel Indigo Shenzhen Overseas Chinese Town is scheduled to welcome guests in December this year.
