InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG), one of the world’s leading hotel companies, and Greenland USA, a leading developer of modern and transformative properties, today announce the opening of the Hotel Indigo® brand’s first hotel in Los Angeles—the 350-room, 18-story flagship Hotel Indigo Los Angeles Downtown hotel. Located at 899 Francisco Street in the new 6.3 acre mixed-use Metropolis development, the boutique hotel sits in the heart of Downtown Los Angeles, a neighborhood with a burgeoning art, culture and entertainment scene. With the design concept created by Hirsch Bedner Associates (HBA), the design of the property is inspired by 1920’s Prohibition era, infusing elements from the underground speakeasies and tunnels, the Fiesta de las Flores parade, the budding Hollywood movie industry, as well as historic Chinatown.
Jason Moskal, Vice President, Lifestyle Brands, The Americas, IHG said: “We are proud to play an integral role in the revitalization of the Downtown Los Angeles neighborhood with this expansion of the IHG family of brands. Located in a city full of art and history, the Hotel Indigo Los Angeles Downtown hotel is a gateway for both guests and locals alike who visit the city to experience the thriving creativity, urban vibe and diversity of downtown Los Angeles.”
Hu Gang, CEO of Greenland USA said: “As the first hotel developed by Greenland USA, Hotel Indigo represents an important step forward in our commitment to developing transformative properties and supporting the local downtown community. Not only does this hotel help meet the city’s need for increased tourism facilities, but it has served as a source of well-paying jobs to more than 2,700 local workers and will help bolster the local economy here in Los Angeles.”
The new-build Hotel Indigo Los Angeles Downtown hotel is part of the downtown area construction boom that’s transforming the popular Los Angeles city center into a walkable destination. The property is walking distance to the city’s major attractions including the L.A. Live entertainment district, Staples Center and Los Angeles Convention Center. The hotel is also close to other area attractions including museums, shops, restaurants, bars, sports and concert venues. It’s the ideal location for the leisure or business traveler wanting to experience all that downtown Los Angeles has to offer.
