Hotel Indigo Denver is set to open in Denver’s Union Station neighborhood in mid-January of 2017. It will be located at 1801 Wewatta Street and will have 180 guest rooms and 1,188 square feet of meeting and event space.

“The hotel will reinvigorate the street through transparency, connectedness and public space development in a responsive and sustainable project for the city of Denver,” says Gordon Beckman, design director. “The hotel was designed with a millennial mindset to appeal to business and leisure travelers of all demographics who seek the charm of a boutique property combined with the branded excellence to be found in all IHG hotels.”

The LEED-Certified building was designed by architectural and engineering firm John Portman & Associates and features a glass floor, floor-to-ceiling glazing and artwork depicting the Colorado gold rush.

Hotel Indigo Denver is a pet-friendly hotel and features treats, canine cocktail hours and dog-walking services. They also offer a complimentary 24-hour fitness studio with televisions, showers and locker rooms.

“The Hotel Indigo Denver is a perfect complement to our growing portfolio of third-party managed hotels in top urban markets with high barriers to new entry,” says Robert S. Cole, founder, president and CEO, HVMG. “We are very familiar with the Indigo brand, having operated the Hotel Indigo Atlanta since its opening in December 2015. Upon opening, we are confident the hotel will ramp up quickly on its way to becoming the market and segment leader.”

The hotel’s meetings space includes three rooms that accommodate up to 200 guests. Including the Hickenlooper Boardroom, the Green Room and the Russell Room, the two can be combined into a larger Green Russell Room. All spaces are equipped with high-speed wireless internet access and projectors.

Hotel Indigo Denver is now accepting reservations for 2017, for more information head to indigodenver.com.
