Paramount Hotel Group, full-service third-party hotel management company, has been awarded the management contract for the Hotel Indigo Newark Downtown. Ethan Kramer, president of Paramount, made the announcement.

The Hotel Indigo is located at 810 Broad Street in Newark, N.J., at the southernmost end of the Passaic River, one block from the Prudential Center and a short walk to the New Jersey Performing Arts Center.

The 12-story, 90,000-square-foot hotel building was erected in 1912 and designed by Cass Gilbert as the National State Bank. With exposed brick, unique windows and loft configurations, each of the hotel’s 108 guestrooms includes décor and artwork that reflect the aesthetic of the surrounding neighborhood.

Hotel Optimization Part 3 | January 27, 2021

With 2020 behind us and widespread vaccine distribution on the horizon, the second half of the new year is looking up, but for Q1 (and most likely well into Q2) we’re very much still in the thick of what has undeniably been the lowest point of the pandemic. What can you be doing now to power through and set yourself up for a prosperous 2021 and beyond? Join us at Part 3 of Hotel Optimization – A Virtual Event on January 27 from 10am – 1:05pm ET for expert panels focused on getting you back to profitability.

All of the hotel's rooms are equipped with iPads, from which guests can control room service, housekeeping service and window shades, among other features. A business center and fitness center are also on-site. A 4,000-square-foot restaurant is located on the ground floor and is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The property's signature Ainsworth Rooftop Lounge provides a view of the New York City skyline. It is open to guests and locals alike and includes a collection of cocktails, American nouveau creations and a late-night menu.

“We are excited to have been selected to manage this Indigo hotel,” Kramer said in a statement. “With this change, Ownership is focusing on Paramount’s core strengths to drive revenue, maximize profitability and provide a quality customer experience.”
