    InterContinental Hotels Group’s (IHG) Hotel Indigo® brand opens its first hotel in Maryland, the 162-room Hotel Indigo Baltimore – Mt. Vernon. Located at 24 West Franklin Street, this unique hotel is also a historic building that once housed Baltimore’s first YMCA. The boutique hotel sits in the heart of Downtown Baltimore’s Historic and Cultural Districts making it easy to discover the local neighbourhood scene. The hotel is located near the Washington Monument of Baltimore, The Walters Art Museum and The George Peabody Library. The Mt. Vernon neighbourhood story is brought to life through art, photography and architecture incorporated into the hotel’s design, bringing local character to guests at every touch point. The library located in the lobby houses many books, including some by local Baltimore authors; the bar’s design was inspired by a lady’s perfume cabinet; and guestrooms include murals of literary-themed etchings.

    The Hotel Indigo Baltimore – Mt. Vernon features restaurant and bar Poets Modern Cocktails & Eats as well as a grab & go option. Both areas offer guests and locals the opportunity to enjoy seasonal and locally sourced food and drinks from purveyors such as Tanner’s Pickles, Ottenberg’s Bakery, Clement’s Pastry Shop, Lancaster Farms, Richardson Farms and Baltimore Coffee & Tea.

    Guestrooms feature plush bedding, hard-surface flooring with area rugs and spa-inspired bathrooms. In addition, the hotel features 112 different guestroom floor plans and five bi-level suites, providing a different room experience upon each stay. Guests also have access to a 24-hour fitness centre and 4,000 sq. ft. of meeting space. The Baltimore hotel features the brand’s Neighbourhood Guide, an innovative touchscreen display that connects guests to each other, the local neighbourhood and to Hotel Indigo locations around the world. Hotel team members, many of whom are locals themselves, will share their favourite hidden gems with guests looking to explore and discover the neighbourhood.

    The Hotel Indigo Baltimore – Mt. Vernon hotel is owned by MVH Baltimore, LLC, and managed by Chesapeake Hospitality.
