Denver, CO – Hotel Indigo Denver officially opened its doors this week. Located at 1801 Wewatta St., in downtown Denver’s thriving Union Station neighborhood, the Mile High City’s newest boutique-style hotel features 180 guestrooms and 1,188 sq. ft. of meeting and event space.
An InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG) hotel, the property was co-developed by Portman Holdings, a commercial real estate company concentrating on urban, well-designed development and redevelopment projects, and Hensel Phelps, one of the largest general contractors and construction managers in the United States, and is managed by Hospitality Ventures Management Group (HVMG), an Atlanta-based, private hotel ownership and management company.
Hotel Indigo Denver delivers a vibrant, engaging and genuine lifestyle experience that invites guests to discover their perfect Denver day. Located in the heart of LoDo, in close proximity to many of Denver’s top attractions, including Union Station, the Denver Performing Arts Complex, Larimer Square, Coors Field, the Colorado Convention Center and the RiNo Arts District, the hotel embraces its locale in both design and service.
The LEED-Certified building, designed by internationally recognized architectural and engineering firm, John Portman & Associates, features a multi-faceted façade of stacked elements, including inviting transparent glass on the ground floor, perforated metal screening and floor-to-ceiling glazing. Artwork evokes memories of the Colorado gold rush, which put Denver on the map on its way to prosperity.
Hotel Indigo Denver’s interior delivers a fresh, unique and locally inspired design without compromising comfort. The distinctly appointed guestrooms feature hardwood floors; polished concrete ceilings; interior sliding barn doors; oversized beds with throw pillows and a plush duvet; spa-inspired showers with complimentary Aveda products; oversized desk space; and murals depicting Denver, the Rocky Mountains and Colorado’s Front Range. A complimentary, 24-hour fitness studio offers Lifestyle cardiovascular equipment, free weights, televisions, showers and locker rooms.
An original art installation by Denver-based sculptor Norman Epp serves as a focal point in the hotel’s lobby. The large sculpture, titled “Wildwood Cronesong: Survival,” incorporates a black cherry tree’s single section of trunk, as well as steel elements. The piece speaks to Colorado’s Rocky Mountains, while still harmonizing with Hotel Indigo Denver’s clean and contemporary design.
The hotel’s 1,188 sq. ft. of meeting and event space includes three rooms, accommodating up to 200 guests in a variety of layouts. These include the Hickenlooper Boardroom, as well as the Green Room and the Russell Room, which can be combined into a larger Green Russell room. All are equipped with the latest amenities, including high-speed wireless Internet access and digital projectors.
Hotel Indigo Denver is a proud pet-friendly hotel, offering a range of amenities for guests’ furry friends, including treats, canine cocktail hours and dog-walking services. All guests – two-legged and four-legged alike – receive a warm welcome from the hotel’s resident dog ambassador, Barkly.
Additionally, a unique resource to its guests, Hotel Indigo’s family members are Denver experts who live, work and play in the Mile High City, and they are eager to coordinate varying itineraries.
