As an IHG Platinum member, I always try to use IHG hotels wherever possible, but this was my first experience of the Indigo brand.
Overall, I can't fault this hotel - great location, superb service, trendy vibe, contemporary styling, decent price - and it will be my hotel of choice for any future visits to Newcastle.
The rooms are quite small but beautifully decorated, the toiletries are Aveda (wow!) and the complimentary minibar is a far cry from the stingy hotels charging extortionate prices for an in-room glass of water. In standard room the minibar is soft drinks only so don't get too excited, but I was upgraded (love it when the Platinum membership is recognised, thanks) and got some wine and beer too in addition to the fabulous balcony. Complimentary room service for breakfast and a Marco Pierre White restaurant on the premises completes the deal for me.
I doubt you'd get better for less than 100 quid in any city centre.

This upscale venue features an iconic Marco Pierre White Steakhouse, delivering to our guests a refreshing and welcoming experience.Hotel Indigo is a boutique concept by InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG), offering guests the luxury and individuality you would come to expect of a 4-star hotel. The design of the venue has been heavily influenced by its location within the historic Grainger Town area and will feature bold geometric forms, classical proportions and repeating patterns to mimic the architecture and rows of columns that can be seen around the local neighbourhood. Today, the Grainger town area is a hot-spot for cutting edge architecture and just a short stroll away from the city’s art galleries, restaurants, shops, bars and business district.
