Operating under a franchise agreement with Sojourn Hotels, Hotel Indigo York is situated on Walmgate.
The 101-bedroom property has been designed to reflect York's chocolate heritage of Rowntree's and Terry's, as well as the city's stonework, not only in the guest rooms but throughout the hotel.
Tom Rowntree, IHG's 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."
Sojourn Hotels is part of the Splendid Hospitality Group - headed by chairman Shiraz Boghani - which last year purchased York's only five-AA-star hotel, the previously named Cedar Court Grand hotel & spa.
Mike Sweeting, hotel manager, Hotel Indigo York, said: "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."
Hotel Indigo York has partnered with 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 selection of Yorkshire craft beers.
There are currently 19 Hotel Indigo properties in Europe and a further 11 in the pipeline. Hotel Indigo York joins nine IHG hotels in Yorkshire.
