Hotel Indigo, a prominent name in IHG Hotels & Resorts’ luxury and lifestyle portfolio, is solidifying its presence in Florida with the grand opening of Hotel Indigo Panama City Marina.
Located in the historic waterfront district of Panama City, this five-story, 124-room hotel is set to become a focal point for visitors and locals alike.
Positioned within walking distance of neighborhood restaurants, bars, and iconic landmarks such as the Martin Theatre and Panama City Center for the Arts, Hotel Indigo Panama City Marina embodies the spirit of the town’s thriving artistic community. Furthermore, the hotel’s hidden gem status lies in its proximity to St. Andrews Bay, a rich ecosystem spanning over 20 miles, home to diverse aquatic life. This natural wonderland features saltwater flats, seagrass beds, and deep channels that make it a prime destination for both novice and experienced anglers, who can explore the area by boat or kayak.
True to the Hotel Indigo brand, each property is designed to reflect the unique characteristics of its neighborhood. In the case of Hotel Indigo Panama City Marina, the ambiance pays homage to the town’s seaside history. The design concept incorporates elements inspired by the indigo plants that once adorned the sandy shorelines. Nautical-themed fixtures and a striking triptych showcasing steam ships that once sailed these waters transport guests to the golden age of seafaring. Additionally, the hotel honors Panama City’s original residents, including Harry Felix, whose artistic influence shaped the vibrant community that now calls Panama City home.
Positioned prominently along the marina near the downtown area, Hotel Indigo Panama City Marina boasts two exciting new restaurant and bar concepts. Tarpons, offering a Southern twist on coastal cuisine, promises to be a neighborhood favorite for guests and locals alike. Meanwhile, Steam on 5, the hotel’s open-air rooftop bar, serves up fresh local seafood, delightful bites, and expertly crafted cocktails, all while providing breathtaking panoramic views.
In addition to its enticing dining options, Hotel Indigo Panama City Marina offers a range of amenities to enhance guests’ stay. The hotel features 1,033 square feet of event space with bay view windows and a 965 square-foot outdoor patio, providing the perfect backdrop for any occasion. A 24-hour fitness center ensures guests can maintain their wellness routines, while an on-site marketplace offers convenience and essential goods. The outdoor pool and firepit, overlooking the picturesque bay, provide relaxation and entertainment options for all visitors.
Beyond the immediate neighborhood, guests of Hotel Indigo Panama City Marina enjoy convenient access to some of the area’s major attractions. Panama City Beach, known for its pristine shores and vibrant atmosphere, lies just a short drive away. The hotel’s location is also favorable for those visiting Florida State University’s Panama City campus, Gulf Coast State College, Naval Support Activity, the Port of Panama City, Tyndall Air Force Base, and other notable destinations.
With its commitment to delivering exceptional experiences tailored to each location, Hotel Indigo continues to establish itself as a leading choice for travelers seeking unique accommodations that celebrate the essence of their surroundings.
