IHG Hotels & Resorts, in collaboration with Pro-invest Group, announced the grand opening of Hotel Indigo Sydney Potts Point.
This marks the debut of the globally renowned, neighbourhood-inspired boutique brand in Sydney. Nestled behind the city’s iconic neon Coca-Cola sign, the 105-room hotel is a vibrant addition to the eclectic Kings Cross neighbourhood, a hub for creatives and party-goers for nearly a century.
The multi-million-dollar refurbishment undertaken by Pro-invest Group breathes new life into the property. It celebrates the area’s rich history as a mecca for musicians, entertainers, and artists. The hotel’s design is a tribute to Kings Cross’s past, present, and future, blending the artistic and the contemporary. Guests are welcomed into a theatrical lobby adorned with a curated art collection, including NFT dance projections and photographic portraits of performance artists who have graced local stages. The lobby also features a turntable for guests to play vintage vinyl records, adding a personal touch to the atmosphere each evening.
The guest room floors continue the theme, with lenticular signage and commissioned artwork honoring the area’s art deco architecture and famous cabaret and drag show scene. The rooms offer views of the city, Sydney Harbour, or the vibrant neon-lit streets, with some featuring private terraces and balconies. The creatively furnished rooms are equipped with generously stocked mini-bars and an all-day in-room breakfast menu, anticipated to be a popular choice among guests.
Adding to the hotel’s allure is renowned Sydney chef Luke Mangan’s new restaurant and bar, Luc-san, a French Izakaya offering a buzzing addition to Potts Point. Hotel guests can also indulge in French-Japanese cuisine in their rooms. Additionally, The X Café in the hotel lobby, also overseen by Mangan, serves everything from morning lattes to lunchtime bites to both guests and locals.
Hotel Indigo Sydney Potts Point is not just a place to stay; it’s an experience that immerses guests in the local culture. From its doorstep on Kings Cross Road, guests can explore Potts Point’s bistros, boutiques, galleries, bars, clubs, and theatres. The hotel’s convenient location also allows easy access to Sydney’s Botanic Gardens, harbourside, and CBD.
Jan Smits, CEO, Asia Pacific of Pro-invest Group, comments on the opening, “Our refurbishment has not only reimagined this property but has also introduced Hotel Indigo’s creative spirit to Sydney, adding to the city’s incredible vibrancy.” Matt Tripolone, Managing Director – Australasia & Pacific at IHG Hotels & Resorts, adds, “Each Hotel Indigo is unique, and Hotel Indigo Sydney Potts Point is no exception. It’s an exceptional example of the brand’s culturally rich boutique offering.”
Hotel Indigo Sydney Potts Point is the fourth Pro-invest Group-owned and operated hotel in Sydney and the third Hotel Indigo in their portfolio. It reflects the group’s commitment to expanding in Australasia, in partnership with IHG Hotels & Resorts.
