The new Hotel Indigo opened by the Galleria in Houston on June
29. The 132-room property, the fourth in a new boutique brand from
InterContinental Hotels Group, offers four meeting rooms for up to
Hotel 1000, a luxury property set beneath the residential
condominiums of Madison Tower in downtown Seattle, opened last
week. The hotel features 120 guest rooms, a spa, a restaurant and
bar, a golf club featuring virtual golf, and 6,200 square feet of
indoor and outdoor meeting space.
Renovations have begun at the Renaissance Austin Hotel that will
create a new Internet café, expand the fitness center and
completely rework the property’s 30,000-square-foot exhibit hall.
Upgrades to the 492 guest rooms already have been completed.
The proposal to build a Cesar Pelli-designed 40-story office
tower and a 200-room hotel over South Station, Boston’s rail and
bus hub, received final approval from the Boston Zoning Commission
last week. David Perry, senior vice president of Hines Interests
LP, which leads the development team, told the Boston Globe last
week that he plans to begin construction on the 40-story tower next
year, if the group can find tenants for the office space.
The 327-room InterContinental Geneva has completed a
refurbishment of its 16 meeting rooms, public spaces and fitness
center. The property also added a Clarins institute & Spa.
