    The newly opened Hotel Indigo Pittsburgh East Liberty is both an adaptive and new build property which enjoys a prominent location in the heart of Pittsburgh’s rejuvenated and thriving cultural district. Featuring 135 rooms, the boutique hotel has been designed with strong references to art, photography and architecture which uniquely brings East Liberty’s theatrical history to life at every turn.Inspired by East Liberty’s historic nightlife, theatre scene and innovators such as Carnegie and Mellon, guests entering the lobby at Hotel Indigo Pittsburgh East Liberty are greeted by staff outfitted in uniforms custom created by local designer, Kiya Tomlin.

    Wallace’s TapRoom, the hotel’s restaurant and bar, offers an American Tavern style menu as well as seasonal and locally sourced food and drinks from purveyors such as Zeke’s Coffee, Natrona Bottling, Mediterra Bake House, Thoma Meat Market, Turner Dairy and Emerald Valley Artisans.

    Guest rooms feature plush bedding, wooden flooring (perhaps in reference to “treading the boards”?) with area rugs and a nod to the theatre era with a velvet curtain entrance and lamps designed to mirror stage lights. The hotel also features a two-room Governor’s Suite which offers a private sitting parlour, bar area and master suite with a separate powder room.

    Guests also have access to a 24-hour fitness centre and 2,400 sq. ft. of meeting space.

    The Hotel Indigo Pittsburgh East Liberty hotel is owned by Governor’s Hotel Company, and managed by IHG.

    The Hotel Indigo brand recently announced new properties signed in Los Angeles, California; Kansas City, Missouri; Denver, Colorado and a second hotel in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, as well as two new international signings including Berlin, Germany and Bali, Indonesia.
