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.
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.”
