Hotel Indigo opens first Pennsylvania property

InterContinental Hotels Group’s (IHG) Hotel Indigo brand opened its first hotel in Pennsylvania with the 135-room Hotel Indigo Pittsburgh East Liberty. The property is both an adaptive reuse and new build comprised of four buildings representing four different eras of Pittsburgh’s history, including the building that formerly housed the Governor Hotel. The boutique hotel sits in Pittsburgh’s cultural district.

“When guests stay at the Hotel Indigo Pittsburgh East Liberty they will find many of the best neighborhood sites within walking distance of the hotel," said Jordan Bartels, GM of the hotel. "Whether it’s seeing an original show at the Kelly Strayhorn Theatre, taking in the dynamic arts scene or trying out the latest dining destination in the East End, we look forward to connecting guests with everything the East Liberty neighborhood has to offer.”
