The hotel’s namesake indigo, a plant that produces a blue dye and was an important part of the state’s economy in the 1700’s, is commemorated throughout Hotel Indigo Mount Pleasant. Elements include design-focused walls, carpeting, furniture and columns in the hotel’s public spaces, guestrooms, suites and meeting space. Eliza’s bar + kitchen was named to commemorate Eliza Lucas Pinckney, a Charlestonian who developed indigo in the Lowcountry and turned it into one of the state’s most important cash crops.
Executive chef Alecia Angioletti and her culinary team serve breakfast and dinner daily at eliza’s bar + kitchen. At dinner, a variety of menu items prepared with local ingredients from area farmers and purveyors are on offer.
Operated by Atlanta-based NorthPointe Hospitality, Hotel Indigo Mount Pleasant also offers 6,000 square feet of custom-crafted gathering space, including the 3,000-square-foot Palmetto Ballroom that can accommodate up to 250 guests, and may be divided into separate meeting rooms.
