MIAMI—Hotel Indigo has signed its third location here in the Brickell neighborhood, once known as Miami’s “Millionaire’s Row” and now considered a cultural mosaic. The 24-story, 140-room hotel is a joint venture by HES Group and Sunview Companies, and will be franchised by an affiliate of IHG.
“Each of our hotels has a unique neighborhood story that is woven throughout the guest experience, from the locally sourced food and drinks served in the restaurant and bar, to the art, photography and architecture incorporated into the hotel’s design,” said Mary Winslow, director, Americas Brand Management, Hotel Indigo. “We think Brickell has an undiscovered story that many people don’t know about, and we look forward to helping guests discover something new when they visit.”
The Hotel Indigo Miami Brickell, expected to open in late 2016, will be located blocks from historic Brickell Avenue and Downtown Miami. The new-build $48-million property will have approximately 2,000 sq. ft. of meeting space, a full restaurant, fitness center, and an outdoor pool with its own bar and grill.
Guestrooms will feature hard-surface flooring with area rugs and spa-inspired bathrooms. The hotel will feature the brand’s new Neighborhood Guide, an innovative touchscreen display that connects guests to each other, the local neighborhood, and to Hotel Indigo locations around the world.
