Atlanta-based hotel owner and operator Hotel Equities announced its appointment as the management firm for the Hotel Indigo located in the historic Pepper Building in downtown Winston-Salem, N.C. The IHG hotel is owned by Mayfair Street Partners, which tapped Hotel Equities to take over the day-to-day operations and management of the full-service boutique hotel.
Hotel Indigo offers guests a wide range of amenities, including an on-site fitness center, complimentary Wi-Fi, a restaurant and a business center. Just outside, guests will find the downtown business district.
“We are proud to welcome a new team of associates to the growing HE family and offer them our best-in-class management training services,” said Joe Reardon, chief development officer for HE. “The team is ready to step in and provide support on all levels to allow this hotel to operate at the highest level. We plan to hit the ground running and create an immediate impact for guests, staff and the ownership group.”
Hotel Equities plans to leverage the existing high-end amenities and its expertise in operational management to further improve the success of the hotel. HE will immediately implement operational protocols heavily emphasizing health and safety and take proper measures to ensure a great stay for guests as travel resumes in 2020.
“Hotel Equities is the ideal operator for the Hotel Indigo, as their values and focus on the customer experience perfectly align with what we are striving for,” said Simon Burgess, managing director and partner with Mayfair. “We’re excited to welcome and expand our relationship with Hotel Equities as well. They are a top-tier operator with a top-tier brand that provides an incredible experience and atmosphere for our guests.”
HE is nearing completion of an additional hotel in the Winston-Salem market, with the Courtyard by Marriott Winston-Salem Downtown slated to open in June.
