    Hotel Indigo, one of the InterContinental Hotels (IHG), has opened an upscale boutique in Nashville, Tennessee, US.Centered in the heart of downtown Nashville, the 97-room conversion property joins the Hotel Indigo Nashville Music Row Vanderbilt. Both Nashville properties were developed by Wesley Hotels & Resorts, which currently has three Hotel Indigo properties in its portfolio with plans to develop more in the future.

    The Hotel Indigo Nashville Downtown is owned by Union Street Plaza Operations and managed by Wesley Hotels & Resorts, under a license agreement with a company in the IHG.

    Located on Union Street, the Hotel Indigo is a conversion of what is still considered two of the most significant historic buildings in downtown Nashville – the historic American Trust Building and the adjoining Nashville Trust Building.

    While preserving the integrity and architecture of the 1920s buildings, Wesley Hotels & Resorts created a mixed-use facility that includes the Hotel Indigo, three floors of extended-stay suites, eight floors of prime office space, the only two-story Starbucks in the city and a parking garage.

    The Hotel Indigo Nashville Downtown opened to the public on March 19. The 96 guestrooms and one penthouse suite are complete with original terrazzo floors and marble vanity tops.

    The property features signature Hotel Indigo standards including inviting guestrooms with oversized beds, spa-inspired showers and photo murals with local imagery. The hotels also offer casual gourmet dining, 24-hour business centers, a fitness center, and free wired or wireless high-speed internet access.

    With the addition of the second Nashville property, there are 34 Hotel Indigo locations open worldwide and more than 60 hotels under development, either in the pipeline or in final negotiation.

    IHG, America brand delivery director, Mary Dogan said: “The Hotel Indigo brand is a flexible development option as there is no maximum or minimum number of rooms or rigid requirements surrounding the public spaces, which makes it perfect for conversions. In addition, our developers have the opportunity to interpret the design of the building as well as the interior to reflect the local environment. We can attribute our success, especially in this economy, to working with the right owners like Wesley Hotels & Resorts to put the right hotels in the right markets.”
