ATLANTA—IHG is continuing expansion of its Hotel Indigo brand in top-tier markets across the U.S., with nine signings in the first seven months of 2014.
Locations include Seattle; Baltimore; Austin and El Paso, TX; Orange Beach and Tuscaloosa, AL; Gainesville, FL; and two hotels in Atlanta.
These signings are in addition to recent agreements signed in late 2013 for hotels in New York City, Miami and Philadelphia.
The Hotel Indigo global pipeline now stands at 56 hotels, with 28 of those hotels in the Americas, following the latest addition to the portfolio, the Hotel Indigo Cleveland-Beachwood hotel, which opened in July in Ohio.
The hotels signed this year are expected to open in 2015 and 2016 and are a mixture of new builds and conversions.
