4 Reasons Hotel Indigo is the Ultimate Power Getaway


Published:

Five Oaks Bar - Grab a seat at the bar and let Hotel Indigo’s award-winning mixologists spoil you with their creative concoctions.

Artistic flair, boutique service, and a location right in the heart of it all. Your room awaits.

You’ve no doubt noticed the six-story art installation of intricate ironwork adorning Hotel Indigo Savannah Historic District’s façade on Barnard Street, further enhancing the visual appeal of the hotel’s exterior that also includes the historic Guckenheimer Building. Based upon a wrought iron staircase railing from the Art Nouveau period, the same period in which the Guckenheimer Building was constructed in 1892, the art installation is just one part of the multi-million dollar renovation of the space and your first hint at the unique experience that awaits inside. So what makes Hotel Indigo the ultimate power getaway in Savannah? Read on and find out why your next Savannah stay should be at the “Grand Lady on the Bay.”

 

Radiant Awakening, a custom art installation designed by SCAD, lights up Hotel Indigo and the city at night.

A Celebration of Savannah 

It goes without saying that a stay in the center of City Market puts you in the heart of some of the city’s most exciting attractions. With an eclectic mix of Southern history and modern design, Hotel Indigo Savannah Historic District is a stunning urban retreat in the heart of the city and features a chic blend of vintage and vivacious, with a true sense of connection to the neighborhood.

“The hotel sits in a prime location for guests and is ideally positioned directly adjacent to both City Market and River Street,” said Hotel Indigo General Manager Michael Cooper. “We see a lot of business travel where companies want to take their teams to a place where they can meet during the day and utilize our advanced technology meeting rooms and then in the evening, they are literally steps away from the best restaurants, nightlife, and shopping the city has to offer.”

Each Hotel Indigo property is built to embody the culture of its city, providing a unique sense of space and neighborhood feel. This philosophy is elegantly demonstrated throughout the Savannah property down to the finest details.

With 252 guest rooms, including 57 spacious suites, Hotel Indigo offers seven floors of inspired design and every amenity you’d expect from luxury boutique hotels in Savannah. Upscale touches like hard surface floors, sleek furnishings, beautiful rugs and designer fabrics make your stay as fashionable as the city outside your window.

Let's not forget those murals. Inside each and every room, you’ll find vibrant floor to ceiling murals featured within the focal point of the room and created locally by SCAD professor Meryl Truett, who also runs a gallery on Liberty Street. That’s to say nothing of the architecture’s redesign, which brilliantly incorporates elements from the building’s history as a merchant center for downtown. Original, beautiful wood columns were reclaimed during the renovation and are on display at Five Oaks Taproom, the hotel’s farm-to-table, merchant inspired restaurant and bar (with a fantastic selection of craft cocktails and bartenders who know their stuff).

“We definitely cater to the traveler who is looking to be totally immersed in Savannah and southern culture.” said Cooper.

 

Boutique Service, Big Name Benefits

Guests also enjoy the brand’s dedication to providing a boutique hotel experience along with all the privileges of IHG Rewards Club membership, the largest hotel loyalty program in the world.

While Hotel Indigo properties can now be found around the globe, as no two neighborhoods are alike, no two Hotel Indigo hotels are the same. This allows each one the freedom to pursue a closer connection to its city and provide guests with the elevated service of a boutique hotel.

"Hotel Indigo provides the best of both worlds,” said Cooper. “You can stay at a modern luxury boutique hotel and also reap the benefits of IHG Rewards Club."

 

Indigo’s Queen Suite equals 465 sq. ft. of studio inspired space featuring two plush queen beds and a stylish sofa bed.

Seriously Suite Experiences

Let’s get serious for a moment. With both city and river views, Hotel Indigo’s 57 suites truly offer the best value and guest experience. Enjoy your spacious room with either a king or queen pillow top bed; indulge in a spa inspired shower with designer toiletries; handle the office from a spacious work space; Bluetooth music player, complimentary internet service; and let’s not forget the 42 inch TV which you can watch from your West Elm designer sofa. Done!

“Don’t discount the added value of having the extra space,” said Cooper. “The suites are a unique feature of ours. Whether for business travelers in need of a quiet place to meet with clients, those bringing the whole family, or guests simply looking for a more enhanced experience, our suites are a perfect place where everyone can come together while also having their own personal space.”

For the full power getaway, especially those traveling with the entire family, look to six of the specially designed loft suites that hold an additional queen bed on a loft set atop a spiral staircase. “The loft suites are especially great for families,” said Cooper.

 

Locally inspired and sourced, Five Oaks Taproom delivers a fresh, farm-to-table dining experience you won’t forget.

Pamper Your Pooch

If you’ve traveled with pets before, you know it can be… ahem, rough to find somewhere willing to accommodate guests of the four-legged variety.

At Hotel Indigo, they don’t just allow pets, they celebrate them. Fido will enjoy a special doggie treat from local Woofgang Bakery, a Hotel Indigo collar clip and special food dish.

Downtown Savannah is notoriously dog-friendly, so staying in the heart of City Market with some of the best places to head out with your furry friend makes Hotel Indigo Savannah Historic District an ideal getaway for you and your pets.
