IHG has opened its fourth Hotel Indigo property in Japan — this time in Tokyo — and award rates are reasonably priced.

Let’s take a look at this new property!

New Shibuya Hotel Has Nearly 300 Rooms

The 272-room Hotel Indigo Tokyo Shibuya has opened in the heart of Tokyo near the city’s Shibuya Crossing district.

Amenities include a fitness center and terrace. The hotel has several dining options, such as a bar lounge, a grab-and-go cafe, and a restaurant serving an international menu with “a Japanese twist.”

“We are very proud to open the fourth Hotel Indigo in Japan, and the first in an urban setting,” said General Manager Rebecca Thorn. “Hotel Indigo Tokyo Shibuya is a celebration of one of the world’s most diverse, ever-evolving neighborhoods.”

Hotel Indigo launched back in 2004. The brand is known for drawing inspiration from each location’s local neighborhood by following popular food, drink, and design trends. Hotel Indigo has nearly 150 hotels open worldwide, with an additional 128 in the pipeline.

Bottom Line:

This marks Hotel Indigo’s fourth branded hotel in Japan, following Hotel Indigo Hakone GoraHotel Indigo Karuizawa, and Hotel Indigo Inuyama Urakuen Garden. A Hotel Indigo property is expected to open in Nagasaki next year.

Booking Hotel Indigo Tokyo Shibuya 

Hotel Indigo Tokyo Shibuya is now open for guests, so you can earn and redeem IHG One Rewards points for a stay at the property.

Award rates can be found for around 55,000 points per night this fall and winter, though some nights can cost as much as 74,000 points per night. We’re also seeing cash rates hovering around $240 per night.

It’s relatively simple to earn IHG One Rewards points. The hotel chain offers 3 IHG credit cards — 2 personal and 1 business — which are issued by Chase. You can also transfer Chase Ultimate Rewards or Bilt Rewards points to IHG One Rewards at a 1:1 ratio.

Even if you don’t have an eligible credit card, there are several ways to earn IHG One Rewards points. You can purchase IHG One Rewards points, enroll in the IHG One Rewards Dining program, or use IHG Business Rewards to earning points for hosting qualifying events.

Final Thoughts

IHG has expanded its Hotel Indigo brand further into Japan, this time in Tokyo, one of the most iconic cities in the world. With award rates relatively reasonable for an expensive city like Tokyo, this is certainly a hotel you should consider on your next visit!
