November 20, 2015 // Franchising.com // ATLANTA – InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG), one of the world’s leading hotel companies, today announces the opening of the Hotel Indigo® brand’s third Metro Atlanta area hotel, the 160-room Hotel Indigo Atlanta-Vinings. Located at 2857 Paces Ferry just 20 minutes from Downtown Atlanta, this boutique hotel sits in the heart of Vinings which was once known as the social crossroads for many in Downtown Atlanta. As the young elite would travel to Vinings as a riverside retreat for social mixers and afternoon tea with the Governor’s wife, locals could be found socializing among their small farms, gardens and artist enclaves.
Jason Moskal, Vice President, Lifestyle Brands, The Americas, IHG said: “As the high demand for boutique hotels continues to grow, we’re thrilled to open our third Hotel Indigo hotel in Metro Atlanta. This unique hotel truly reflects the local culture, character and history of Vinings. Guests will be inspired by the artistry and allure of Vining’s past which is seamlessly integrated into the design and service of the stylish Hotel Indigo Atlanta-Vinings.”
When guests first arrive at the Hotel Indigo Atlanta-Vinings, they will be greeted by a front desk resembling whiskey distillery barrels inspired by the abundance of local whiskey once produced in the area. Moving further into the hotel, guests will be surrounded by the influence of famed American folk artist, Nellie Mae Rowe, who previously owned the land where the hotel now sits. The bold color palette throughout the hotel is reminiscent of her work, and the wall behind the front desk is made of recycled bottles; a nod to the glass bottles frequently used in Nellie Mae’s art. Guestrooms and elevator lobbies feature murals depicting the history of the riverfront town, artfully crafted to create the illusion of a front porch view in historic Vinings, further bringing the Vinings neighborhood story to life at every touch point.
At the hotel’s restaurant and bar, The Public House at Vinings, guests can enjoy locally inspired dishes with a southern flair. Atlanta favorite, Jake’s Ice Cream, even created Bourbon Pecan as a custom flavor for the restaurant. Signature cocktails feature house-made syrups and juices, as well as spirits from local distillers, American Spirit Whiskey and Old Fourth Ward. The hotel also offers guests and locals the opportunity to enjoy seasonal and locally sourced food and drinks from purveyors such as Caly Road Creamery, Heywood’s Meathaus, Revere Meats, Wild Heaven, 3 Taverns, Monday Night Brewing, Sweetwater Brewing Company and Red Hare Brewing.
Chad Couture, General Manager, said: “We’re honored to be part of this great community in Vinings. When guests stay at the Hotel Indigo Atlanta-Vinings, they will discover the many charms of this quaint and historic village. Whether it’s a picnic by the Chattahoochee River, a culinary adventure at Canoe or a visit to The Pace House, we look forward to connecting guests with everything the Vinings neighborhood has to offer.”
Guestrooms have a more residential feel and feature plush bedding, hard-surface flooring with area rugs and spa-inspired bathrooms. Guests also have access to a 24-hour fitness center and over 3,200 sq. ft. of meeting space, aptly named the Crossroads and Riverside Ballrooms. The Vinings hotel features the brand’s Neighborhood Guide, an innovative touchscreen display that connects guests to each other, the local neighborhood and to Hotel Indigo locations around the world. Hotel team members, many of whom are locals themselves, will share their favorite hidden gems with guests looking to explore and discover the neighborhood.
The Hotel Indigo Atlanta-Vinings hotel is owned by Rialto Capital Management, and managed by Valor Hospitality Partners.
