IHG’s HOTEL INDIGO ® BRAND BRINGS LOCAL BOUTIQUE EXPERIENCE TO Vibrant OLD TOWN, ALEXANDRIA NEIGHBORHOOD
Hotel Indigo Old Town Alexandria will be first hotel along scenic Alexandria waterfront
InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG), one of the world’s leading hotel companies, announces the forthcoming opening of the Hotel Indigo ® Old Town Alexandria hotel. Located at 220 South Union Street, Alexandria, Virginia, the hotel will be Alexandria’s first waterfront hotel, delivering a stylish, local experience informed by the city’s picturesque waterfront, and paying homage to its maritime roots.
Each Hotel Indigo property is uniquely designed to reflect the culture, character and history of the surrounding neighborhood. While the Hotel Indigo Old Town Alexandria hotel will boast modern design elements, nods to the city’s nautical history include a statue by local sculptor Chris Erney. His work features a fisherman pulling in a net, inspired by photos found in the Library of Congress archives showing primary source photos of a Potomac fisherman taken in the 1920s. The Potomac River’s original shoreline, which falls along the hotel’s lobby, will also be featured. Upon breaking ground, a Revolutionary War-era ship was uncovered as well as John Carlyle’s 1755 public warehouse, to the great excitement of local archaeologists. These discoveries inspired marine, colonial, and warehouse motifs throughout the hotel’s design.
The Hotel Indigo Old Town Alexandria property will be LEED Silver certified, featuring five stories, 120 rooms, and a 5,000 square foot terrace overlooking the river. Designed by Dash Design, the aesthetic was inspired by Alexandria’s historic wharves and warehouses.
With a soon to be announced partner restaurant and bar, the hotel will create a welcoming outdoor patio with fire pits and programming through the spring and summer to appeal to neighborhood residents and guests alike. More info on the Hotel Indigo Old Town Alexandria can be found online; on Facebook; and on Instagram. Further details on the hotel and its opening will be forthcoming.
The Hotel Indigo Old Town Alexandria hotel is owned by Carr 220 South Union Street, LLC, and is managed by IHG.
