InterContinental Hotels Group has announced that a third Hotel Indigo is coming to Atlanta. The Hotel Indigo Downtown Atlanta is expected to open in fall 2015, and will occupy eight floors of a building first developed 50 years ago by John C. Portman, Jr., whose real estate development firm, Portman Holdings, purchased the building. Portman’s architecture firm, Portman & Associates, will oversee architectural services.
“Downtown Atlanta is experiencing a surge in growth and development, and we look forward to connecting guests to the newly revitalized neighborhood,” said Mary Winslow, director, Americas brand management, Hotel Indigo. “The hotel will be located in the center of downtown and very close to the new Atlanta Streetcar line, making it easy to step out and explore. We are very pleased to be part of a new project in our hometown, and we’re excited about helping guests discover something new about the neighborhood every time they visit.”
The hotel will be located at 230 Peachtree St. NE, near attractions including Centennial Olympic Park, the Tabernacle and the Rialto Center for the Arts. The hotel will be adjacent to AmericasMart, one of the world’s largest permanent wholesale trade centers. The approximately 200-room conversion property will have a fitness center, business center, bar and restaurant.
The hotel is owned by Portman 230, LLC, and will be franchised by an affiliate of IHG.
”Portman is delighted to partner with IHG in creating an exciting and distinct Hotel Indigo hotel in such a prime location,” said Portman Holdings CEO, Ambrish Baisiwala, “We have a long history of developing unique hotels, and look forward to continuing this work in partnership with IHG.”
In addition to this signing, the Hotel Indigo brand recently announced new properties signed in Miami and New York City, as well as new or upcoming openings in three major European cities, Hotel Indigo St. Petersburg Tchaikovskogo, Hotel Indigo Madrid Gran Via and Hotel Indigo Rome St. George.
