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.
