    Upscale Boutique Hotel Brand Continues North America Expansion

    Hotel Indigo®, IHG’s (InterContinental Hotels Group) [LON: IHG, NYSE: IHG (ADRs)] upscale boutique brand, is continuing its expansion in major U.S. cities with plans for its third hotel in the Chicago market. The hotel, which will be located in the historic downtown area’s Atlantic Bank Building, is expected to open in spring 2014.

    The Hotel Indigo Chicago-Millennium Park hotel, located at 168 N. Michigan Ave., will undergo an estimated $20 million renovation by the ownership and will occupy a 101-year-old building that first opened in 1912 as the Federal Life Building. The 156-room hotel will feature design elements that reflect its local neighborhood just north of Millennium Park within Chicago’s central business district.
    As part of the extensive renovations, the hotel will add four floors to the building -- bringing the total to 16 stories – housing a rooftop bar, and a restaurant managed by celebrity chef David Burke. The hotel will maintain many of its historic features, including the original white enamel terra cotta exterior, while including the benefits and amenities guests expect from staying with a brand from one of the world’s largest global hotel companies.
