ATLANTA—InterContinental Hotels Group’s (IHG) Hotel Indigo brand has opened its first hotel in Pennsylvania, the 135-room Hotel Indigo Pittsburgh East Liberty. Located at 123 North Highland Ave., this hotel consists of both adaptive-reuse and new-build prospects among four buildings representing four different eras of Pittsburgh’s history, including the building that formerly housed the Governor Hotel.

When guests first arrive at the Hotel Indigo Pittsburgh East Liberty, they will be greeted by staff outfitted in uniforms custom-created by local designer Kiya Tomlin. The art, photography and architecture incorporated into the hotel’s design brings East Liberty’s theatrical neighborhood story to life at every touch point, according to IHG. The guestroom decor features a nod to the majestic theater era with a velvet curtain entrance, theater- inspired murals and lamps designed to mirror stage lights, while photo stills of vintage movie Academy Leaders mark each floor in front of the guest elevators.
