Hotel Indigo York, our boutique hotel in York have scooped The Press People’s Award at the recent York Design Awards 2016, just a year on from its opening. The York hotel was voted most popular among 27 other schemes in the city of York shortlisted for the category.
We are delighted to receive this award and would like to thank everyone that voted. The design of each Hotel Indigo is inspired by the local culture and history of the surrounding neighbourhood. In York, we took cues from the Walmgate area, the city’s history in chocolate production and incorporated playful features to inspire guests during their stay.
– Tom Rowntree, IHG's Vice President for Hotel Indigo, Europe.
Our design brief focused on the York locale and its chocolate heritage and it is fantastic to win this York award. Being applauded by our neighbours marks a real milestone for the hotel as we celebrate our first birthday this month.
– Mike Sweeting, General Manager for Hotel Indigo York.
Congratulations to Hotel Indigo York on winning The Press People’s Award. The team must be thrilled to know how much the general public love the hotel. This is a great accolade and probably the best award the hotel could have wished for. Against 27 other excellent schemes competing for what people liked best, to gain most votes is a considerable achievement.
