IHG Hotels & Resorts has re-opened one of the most prestigious hotels in the Italian city of Verona following an exciting redesign under the Hotel Indigo. With 62 uniquely designed rooms, Hotel Indigo Verona - Grand Hotel Des Arts draws inspiration from the city’s passion of preserving history. The hotel is a beautiful tribute to Verona.
The guest rooms feature headboards mimicking the beautifully preserved fresco paintings in the city. And with the back panelling in the lobby that plays to the garden of Romeo and Juliet, guests will be able to find nods to the surrounding neighbourhood in the hotel's design.
Red marble native to Verona (Marmo rosso di Verona) throughout the public areas creates an elevated feel of a grand Italian residence - inspired by the most famous love story ever told. . The reception area combines two elements that characterize the city: The Arena and the Shakespeare theatre. The architecture draws inspiration from the theatrical facades, its draperies, the arches of the Arena, and Juliet's terrace.
Perhaps the quirkiest Shakespearean touch is the meeting rooms named after the duelling families in Romeo and Juliet, Montechhi, and Capuleti. The event spaces are easily adjustable for different uses – conferences and small functions.
The hotel also has an onsite bar, Arya Bar & Mixology, with a selection of locally inspired cocktails and nibbles, perfect for guests to have an aperitif and relax after a day exploring the neighbourhood.
