Hotel Indigo Savannah Historic District opens
Noble Investment Group has announced the opening of the 252-room Hotel Indigo Savannah Historic District, which is managed by InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG). Located at 201 West Bay Street, the Hotel Indigo sits in the heart of historic Savannah in the former Guckenheimer tobacco warehouse and grocery, a nationally registered landmark built in 1850.
“We are excited to welcome guests to the Hotel Indigo Savannah Historic District in the heart of City Market at Ellis Square,” said Kellie Lindner, General Manager. This boutique hotel delivers a truly authentic local experience inspired entirely by the very community that surrounds it. You will taste the local flavour on our menus and see it in the art and photography displayed on our walls.”
Upon entering the hotel, guests are immediately drawn in by an etched glass piece of art that depicts Savannah’s famous oak trees. The building was returned to its original historic shell, preserving century-old materials and historic details including exposed brick and unearthed structural timber beams which are visible throughout the property. Students at Savannah College of Art & Design (SCAD) submitted various art pieces to be featured in the hotel, and the winning piece is displayed in an art installation on the east end of the building. Local artist Meryl Turret designed the guest room murals which showcase historic bottles that were unearthed in this district of Savannah, and each room also features unique watercolor pieces that highlight the original market building. There are also several additional murals throughout the hotel which are replications of original advertisements from the Guckenheimer warehouse and market.
As a nod to the beautiful Spanish moss covered oak trees that provide a canopy in Savannah’s historic district, the hotel features The Five Oaks Taproom restaurant, offering breakfast and dinner. The restaurant serves locally inspired dishes with ingredients sourced from within 90 miles of Savannah, whenever possible.
Guestrooms feature plush bedding, hard-surface flooring with area rugs and spa-inspired bathrooms. Guests also have access to a 24-hour fitness centre and 6,000 square feet of flexible event space.
