NEW YORK—Marshall Hotels & Resorts has been selected by owner 10-12 MLane, LLC to manage the under-construction Hotel Indigo Manhattan Financial District.
Marshall will handle all pre-opening activities, as well as operate the hotel when it opens in 2016.
“This will be our third current hotel in Manhattan and eighth new-build project in the city,” stated Mike Marshall, president/CEO. “While the hotel will not open its doors for another 18 months or so, the hotel’s future success begins now. We will provide input throughout the construction process to help maintain schedules and optimize efficiency, initiate a comprehensive marketing outreach program and bring on experienced staff to ramp the hotel quickly in order to open the property smoothly with a solid book of business."
The Hotel Indigo Manhattan Financial District is located on Maiden Lane between Nassau St. and Broadway, one block from the new One World Trade Center.
The 25-story, 190-room property’s design will incorporate the theme of time to honor the area’s history of being a craftsman center for fine jewelry and watchmaking. The hotel will offer 1,450 sq. ft. of meeting space, a fitness center and a rooftop lounge.
“Our plan is to operate the hotel so that it becomes an immediate classic in one of the most dynamic neighborhoods in Manhattan,” added Marshall. “We expect the Indigo brand and its amenities to be a significant factor in achieving that plan.”
