First Hotel Indigo signed in Denver

InterContinental Hotels Group’s Hotel Indigo brand, which has 61 locations open in 12 countries, signed its first hotel in the state of Colorado, which will connect guests with Denver’s Lower Downtown neighborhood (LoDo).

The Hotel Indigo Denver will be located within Union Tower West, a 200,000 square foot mixed-use development of office and retail space, co-developed by Portman Holdings and Hensel Phelps. Portman Holdings is also currently developing a portion of an existing 27-story office building to a 203-room Hotel Indigo in Downtown Atlanta.

The Hotel Indigo Denver, expected to open in winter 2016, will be located at 1801 Wewatta Street adjacent to Denver Union Station. New additions to the station will soon include the historic station market. Popular LoDo attractions also include Wynkoop Brewing Company, Colorado’s first brewpub and Denver’s first craft brewery, 16th Street Mall, Commons Park, Cherry Creek bike path, and Coors Field. The 180-room property will have approximately 1,950 square feet of meeting space, a fitness center, business center, bar and restaurant.
