Atlanta-based InterContinental Hotels Group has signed development deals for three Hotel Indigo properties in the state of Washington -- Hotel Indigo Vancouver Downtown, Hotel Indigo Everett and Hotel Indigo Spokane. All three properties are expected to open before the second quarter of 2020.
Craig Mueller, IHG's vice president, development, upscale and luxury for the Americas, said in statement announcing the three deals, "We look forward to bringing the local neighborhood stories to life in the development of these unique hotels. With more than 50 Hotel Indigo properties open in the Americas region, these signings demonstrate confidence from owners and further momentum for the brand."
The 138-room, eight-story Hotel Indigo Vancouver Downtown will be along the Columbia River, adjacent to the 12-story luxury Kirkland Tower Condominiums, an entertainment pier, retail shops and restaurants, all of which are part of a waterfront mixed-use development. The hotel -- which will have several dining outlets, including a rooftop bar, and 3,300 square feet of meeting space -- will debut in the first quarter of 2020.
The 142-room Hotel Indigo Everett will be on the Puget Sound waterfront, within the Port of Everett, 29 miles north of downtown Seattle. The new-build, four-story property will feature a full-service restaurant and bar, 6,100 square feet of meeting space, a business center, a fitness center and an indoor pool. It is expected to open in the second quarter of 2019.
The 112-room Hotel Indigo Spokane will be a conversion from an existing historic building erected in 1911. The five-story property in the city's downtown will feature a restaurant and bar, a fitness center, a business center and 1,500 square feet of meeting space. Scheduled to open in Q2 2019, it will be less than one mile from the Spokane Convention Center.
Since the launch of Hotel Indigo in 2004, IHG has grown the brand's portfolio to 88 properties worldwide, with an additional 86 in the global pipeline. In November 2017, the brand celebrated the opening of its 50th hotel in the Americas, the 118-room Hotel Indigo Kansas City Downtown.
