Intercontinental Hotels Group has opened a new Hotel Indigo in Miami, with two more to follow.
Located in the Dadeland business centre, the 122-room boutique hotel is 10 miles from Miami International airport, and was formerly a Ramada Limited property.
Jim Anhut, senior vice president, franchise development, the Americas, IHG, commented: “We’re excited to bring Hotel Indigo to Miami, a city known for embracing the individuality of the boutique hotel concept. We’re looking forward to the opportunity to provide our unique blend of branded-hotel consistencies with the design and service personality of a boutique.”
The Hotel Indigo Dadeland Miami features guestrooms with hardwood-style flooring and spa-inspired showers, as well as a “Phi”tness Studio with cardio equipment and free weights. The hotel also offers a 24-hour business centre, more than 300 square feet of meeting space for business functions or special events, and wireless high-speed internet access throughout the hotel.
The Golden Bean café serves breakfast and Starbucks Coffee, and Phi restauarant will offer evening dining, although guests can also choose to dine in one of the hotel’s oversized lobby chairs or in their room.
The other two Hotel Indigo properties are set to open in Miami later this year. An 86-room conversion of the Don Shula Golf Club will open in Miami Lakes, and in South Beach a 135-room new-build property is planned.
The boutique Hotel Indigo concept is IHG’s newest brand, and is expanding throughout North America, with 19 locations open and more than 60 under development. The first Hotel Indigo opened in Atlanta in October 2004, with future sites to include Miami, Las Vegas, New York and London.
