When it opens, the property will be managed by Hospitality Ventures Management Group.

“The Hotel Indigo Denver is a perfect complement to our growing portfolio of third-party managed hotels in top urban markets with high barriers to new entry,” Robert S. Cole, founder, president and CEO of HVMG, said in a statement. “We are very familiar with the Indigo brand, having operated the Hotel Indigo Atlanta since its opening in December 2015. Upon opening, we are confident the hotel will ramp up quickly on its way to becoming the market and segment leader."

The hotel's meeting and event space consists of three rooms -- the Hickenlooper Boardroom, the Green Room and the Russell Room -- which are capable of accommodating up to 200 guests. The property is also pet friendly, and pets are offered their own range of amenities including treats and dog-walking services.
