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.
The hotel is also home to the Five Oaks Taproom restaurant, which serves breakfast and dinner.
"We are thrilled to bring the first Hotel Indigo hotel to the ‘Hostess City of the South’, Downtown Savannah. This boutique hotel delivers a truly authentic local experience allowing both guests and locals to discover something new every time they visit the charming City Market neighborhood," said Jason Moskal, VP, lifestyle brands, The Americas, IHG. "From the preservation of the original building’s historic past to the art installations that embrace the vibrant soul of the neighborhood today, guests will be inspired by the stories seamlessly integrated into the design and service style of the Hotel Indigo Savannah Historic District hotel."
