InterContinental Hotels Group will open its first Hotel Indigo hotel; IHG’s boutique hotel brand, in the city of Los Angeles, California. The 350-room, 18-story Hotel Indigo Downtown Los Angeles is a part of Metropolis project which is over $1 billion mixed-use development that promises to redefine the Los Angeles streetscape, skyline and lifestyle.
Currently under construction, Metropolis will also feature three residential towers and a curated retail experience. Metropolis is owned by Greenland USA (a subsidiary of Shanghai-based Greenland Group). The hotel will be the eighth IHG-branded hotel for Greenland Group, with the other seven all located in Greater China including the HUALUXE® Nanchang High Tech Zone hotel, located in Nanchang, the capital of the Jiangxi Province, which opened this month.
The Hotel Indigo Downtown Los Angeles hotel, set to open in winter of 2016, will be located at 899 Francisco Street in the heart of Downtown L.A., linking the Financial District to L.A. Live, the Nokia Theatre, the Staples Center and Los Angeles Convention Center. The hotel is easily accessible to the Los Angeles International Airport, Hollywood and Santa Monica Beach. Every Hotel Indigo property is uniquely designed to reflect the culture, character and history of its surrounding neighborhood. This Downtown Los Angeles location will have a unique neighborhood story that will be woven throughout the guest experience, from the seasonal and locally sourced food and drinks served in a stylish environment at the restaurant and bar, to the art, photography and architecture incorporated into the hotel’s design. The neighborhood story will focus around several prominent narratives from Downtown L.A.’s past including Fiesta De Las Flores, the glamorous pre-Hollywood nightlife scene and the underground speakeasies of the roaring twenties.
Downtown Los Angeles is currently undergoing a major revitalization and residents are returning to the area to work, play and live. With the city’s goal of adding hotel rooms within walking distance of the Los Angeles Convention Center by 2020, the Hotel Indigo Downtown Los Angeles is well positioned to support the economic growth of this world-class city while also helping to preserve the uniqueness of Downtown L.A.’s iconic past.
