New Hotel Indigo opens in Savannah

Hotel Indigo Savannah

The Hotel Indigo Savannah Historic District opened in Savannah, Ga.

The 252-room hotel is in the former Guckenheimer tobacco warehouse and grocery, a nationally registered landmark built in 1850. The building is located in the neighborhood of City Market at Ellis Square.

The building's original historic form was restored, preserving historic details such as exposed brick and unearthed structural timber beams which are visible throughout the property. Students at Savannah College of Art & Design (SCAD) submitted various art pieces to be featured in the hotel, and the winning piece is displayed  on the east end of the building. Local artist Meryl Turret designed the guest room murals which showcase historic bottles that were unearthed in this district of Savannah, and each room also showcases unique watercolor pieces that highlight the original market building.
