York's chocolate heritage is reflected throughout InterContinental Hotel Group's new boutique Hotel Indigo, which opened in the city last week.

The 101-room hotel is located in Walmgate, birthplace of York’s chocolate making empire, which included Rowntrees (the famous English confectioner started life in this neighbourhood in 1725). The area is also a thriving foodie destination and is close to restaurants and bars, as well as famous tea-rooms, galleries and museums including York's Chocolate Story.

In keeping with the Hotel Indigo brand's ethos of being influenced by its surrounding neighbourhood, Hotel Indigo York not only does chocolate, but hosts an outlet of the award-winning Yorkshire Meatball Co., one of the UK’s only speciality meatball restaurants. The restaurant serves meat, fish, vegetarian and sweet balls all hand-rolled in-house, as well as a wide selection of Yorkshire craft beers.

A small private dining area can host meetings for up to ten people, charged at £100 per day. The hotel also offers in-room media hubs and chocolate mini bars, a fitness suite and complimentary wi-fi throughout.

Tom Rowntree, IHG Vice President for Hotel Indigo, Europe, said: "We’re enormously proud to be opening our first Hotel Indigo property in York. Hotel Indigo provides a refreshingly local experience for guests through stylish design, locations in unique and culturally-rich neighbourhoods, topped off with intimate, personalised service. We’re the place to discover something new and feel inspired whether you’re a local, or a visitor travelling for business or leisure."

Mike Sweeting, Hotel Manager, Hotel Indigo York saidd: "The neighbourhood of Walmgate provides the perfect base for exploring York’s rich cultural heritage. With our chocolate inspired décor and emphasis on real local flavours we are ready to give guests an authentic Yorkshire welcome."
