InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG) and Nagoya Railroad have signed an agreement to open Hotel Indigo Inuyama Urakuen in the second half of 2021.

The 150-room building initially opened in 1965, and previously operated as the Meitetsu Inuyama Hotel. Now reopening as Hotel Indigo Inuyama Urakuen, the establishment will be rebuilt with a striking modern design and will feature a café and bar, meeting rooms, a spa, health club, and retail outlet.

Hotel Indigo properties all have a reputation for their unique and distinct feel. Each hotel draws stories from its local area to inspire every aspect of the hotel, making guests feel truly part of the destination. With Inuyama’s rich history, castle, museums, and teahouses, Hotel Indigo will almost certainly incorporate that into the hotel’s design.

“Inuyama has been a popular destination for residents of Nagoya and throughout Japan for many years, but there is an opportunity in the market for a great globally branded hotel. Inuyama, with its rich story and heritage, is the perfect location for a Hotel Indigo, and from 2021 we will deliver an amazing product that meets the needs of those travellers who are looking for the winning mix of international brand and local experience.” Hans Heijligers, IHG’s Head of Japan said.
