Denver, Colo. – InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG) has recently signed the first Hotel Indigo property in the state of Colorado. The boutique hotel chain will debut the luxurious Hotel Indigo Denver in the winter of 2016 at 1801 Wewatta St., in the city’s highly sought-after LoDo neighborhood.

Hotel Indigo Denver will be located on the 5th through the 8th floors of Union Tower West, a 200,000-square-foot mixed-use development adjacent to the newly redeveloped Denver Union Station. The 180-room hotel will encompass approximately 1,950 square feet of meeting space, fitness center, business center, bar and restaurant. Guestrooms will feature murals, area rugs, duvets and slipcovers, and will reflect the culture and history of the surrounding LoDo neighborhood.

Developed by Atlanta-based Portman Holdings and Hensel Phelps Construction Co., Union Tower West comprises 200,000 square feet of retail and Class AA office space in the heart of downtown Denver. Designed by John Portman & Associates, the building is expected to achieve LEED Gold certification from the U.S. Green Building Council.

“We are excited to expand the Hotel Indigo brand into this incredible Downtown Denver neighborhood,” said Jason Moskal, vice president, Lifestyle Brands, The Americas, IHG. “The local area around Union Station is home to many historical storefronts, warehouses and industrial buildings that help define the neighborhood, creating the perfect location for our newest hotel.”

Hotel Indigo Denver is owned by CUOF IV LODO, LLC, and will be franchised by an IHG affiliate, according to a news release. Portman Holdings is also developing a 203-room Hotel Indigo in downtown Atlanta.
