IHG to open stylish Indigo flagship hotel in L.A.
Los Angeles – 6 April 2017 –
InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG) opened the Hotel Indigo brand’s first hotel in Los Angeles — the 350-room, 18-story flagship Hotel Indigo Los Angeles Downtown hotel. Located at 899 Francisco Street in the new 6.3 acre mixed-use Metropolis development, the boutique hotel sits in the heart of Downtown Los Angeles, a neighborhood with a burgeoning art, culture and entertainment scene.
With the design concept created by Hirsch Bedner Associates (HBA), the design of the property is inspired by 1920’s Prohibition era, infusing elements from the underground speakeasies and tunnels, the Fiesta de las Flores parade, the budding Hollywood movie industry, as well as historic Chinatown.
The new-build Hotel Indigo Los Angeles Downtown hotel is part of the downtown area construction boom that’s transforming the popular Los Angeles city center into a walkable destination. The property is walking distance to the city’s major attractions including the L.A. Live entertainment district, Staples Center and Los Angeles Convention Center. The hotel is also close to other area attractions including museums, shops, restaurants, bars, sports and concert venues. It’s the ideal location for the leisure or business traveler wanting to experience all that downtown Los Angeles has to offer.
The Hotel Indigo Los Angeles Downtown hotel features dining with the lobby-level Metropole Bar+Kitchen, inspired by the tunnels beneath downtown Los Angeles. The top-floor cocktail lounge, 18 Social, offers inspired décor that brings to life what it was like to slip underground into the world of speakeasies during prohibition America. The impressive 9,100 sq. ft. outdoor pool terrace located on the fourth-floor highlights sweeping views of Los Angeles and is outfitted with a bar and a variety of seating options.
The spacious guestrooms feature murals depicting the elements of old Hollywood with plush bedding, hard-surface flooring with area rugs and spa-inspired bathrooms with Jonathan Adler amenities. The hotel includes three spacious luxury suites, including the Presidential suite inspired by hotel muse Anna May Wong, the first Chinese American movie star.
Guests have access to a 24-hour fitness center and nearly 22,000 sq. ft. of meeting space across 11 rooms. The Los Angeles hotel features the brand’s Neighborhood Guide, an innovative touchscreen display that connects guests to each other, the local neighborhood and to Hotel Indigo locations around the world. Hotel team members, many of whom are locals themselves, will share their favorite hidden gems with guests looking to explore and discover the neighborhood.
