The Hotel Indigo Downtown Atlanta location will occupy eight floors of a building first developed 50 years ago by one of Atlanta’s most respected and influential architects, John C. Portman, Jr., whose real estate development firm, Portman Holdings, purchased the building. The Hotel Indigo Downtown Atlanta hotel, expected to open in fall 2015, will be located at 230 Peachtree St. NE, near Atlanta gems including Centennial Olympic Park, the Tabernacle and the Rialto Center for the Arts. The hotel will be adjacent to AmericasMart, one of the world’s largest permanent wholesale trade centres, consisting of four buildings and more than seven million square feet of trade show space. AmericasMart hosts several trade shows throughout the year including the Atlanta Apparel Markets and the Atlanta International Gift and Home Furnishings Markets. The approximately 200-room conversion property will have a fitness centre, business centre, bar and restaurant.
The hotel is owned by Portman 230, LLC, and will be franchised by an affiliate of IHG.
