    Hotel Indigo has recently announced the opening of its second location in Atlanta in one of Georgia’s largest historic districts and just minutes from Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport.The hotel, located at 1776 Harvard Ave. in historic College Park, offers guests a unique hotel experience with a comfortable design that blends well with the surrounding neighbourhood. As unique as many of the area’s historic homes and buildings, the hotel offers guests the intimate service typically associated with boutique lodging along with the peace of mind and consistency expected from a large hotel group.

    The 142-room, five-story hotel offers a warm and inviting environment with each room featuring a vibrant décor with touches of starbursts and turquoise. Vintage photographs of the neighbourhood can be found throughout the hotel that invite and inspire guests to explore the surrounding historic areas in the city of College Park. Common areas, including the reception area, are well furnished and reflect the region with layered marble brought in from Tate, the marble capital of Georgia.

    The College Park neighbourhood has a small town feel where shops and restaurants are family owned and operated along College Park’s Main Street. The town’s architecture mimics the historic Georgia Military Academy founded in 1900 that is now home to Woodward Academy, one of the largest private schools in the nation.

    The new hotel is reflective of its surroundings from the artwork on the wall to the menu at BlueGoose Bar and Kitchen, which serves breakfast, lunch and dinner in a casual environment. Guests can enjoy outdoor dining on the spacious patio and visit the exclusive wine and scotch bar that’s open nightly. Whether they’re visiting the restaurant or attending a function in one of the hotel’s two meeting rooms, guests will discover outstanding service provided by a staff that is courteous and intimately familiar with the surrounding area.

    For business travellers, the new Hotel Indigo is within five miles of the headquarters of Delta Airlines, Chick-fil-A and AirTran Airways. It is also close to Federal Aviation Administration offices. Among the nearby attractions are the Georgia International Convention Center, the Georgia Aquarium, Six Flags Over Georgia and Turner Field.

    The hotel offers free high-speed wired and wireless Internet access in guest rooms and public spaces, a 24-hour business centre and a fitness centre.

    Reflective of the trend toward creature comforts with a smaller footprint, space-efficient guestrooms feature plush bedding, high-definition flat-screen TVs, iHome stations and spa-inspired showers with Aveda products. Hard surface flooring with area rugs create a fresh, residential feel.

    Hotel Indigo Atlanta Airport College Park is owned and managed by College Park Hotels LLC under a license agreement with a company in the InterContinental Hotels Group.
