Hotel Indigo is bringing its gritty and eclectic style to Melbourne
One of the world's top boutique hotel brands has special plans for Melbourne.
Melbourne's heritage listed Docklands precinct is going to have a new feature soon, in the form of a Hotel Indigo, from a company that claims a position as the world's first globally branded boutique hotel experience.
Details of what we can expect from the 170 room 5-star hotel are still vague, but according to Karin Shepphard, COO of Hotel Indigo operations in Australia, it's going to be something special and "not just liveable, but gritty, with an eclectic style".
Livable might be an understatement. So far what's been revealed is that it will boast an indoor resort-style pool and gym, meeting and board rooms, a street-facing restaurant and bar stretching across two floors and uninterrupted waterfront views from all large rooms. The design is envisioned to be unique, the palette vibrant and modern, and the decor inviting, stylish and refreshing.
The diverse nature of Salta properties, who have been signed to build Hotel Indigo, also hints at the possibility of a permanent apartment in the building, with all the amenities to serve as a home, and flourish as an outstanding investment property.
The immense growth of boutique hotels in recent years has shown that there are a plenty of discerning travellers out there who want more than just a place to sleep, which is where Hotel Indigo in particular has seen immense success. In fact, the Melbourne location is just one of over 60 Hotel Indigo properties currently in the works.
The 170 room hotel is slated to open in 2019, ready to welcome visitors to Melbourne's waterfront gateway. Until then, you've got plenty of other winning 5-star hotels in Melbourne to rest and recoup in after a long day exploring the city.
