Hotel Indigo

Gee, Richard. You may have been gone a while, but you've shown up with some good stuff. I'd have never thought of the Indigo for downtown, especially being announced before the other one opens. And the W? This is great. Thanks man.

That's a cool looking building...great for a Hotel indigo. Little surprised though that there will be 2 Hotel Indigos only a couple of miles apart.

One of the more redeeming qualities of this Indigo development are the amenities accessible by the public, the coffee shop, etc. That, in addition to the Stahlman, and the project soon to commence at AmSouth along with the completed courthouse plaza, should be a great shot toward revitalizing yet another quiet, dark intersection.

Now we just need to start planning the implosion of the public square parking garage. :thumbsup:

I personally think the building in question for this hotel is my favorite high-rise downtown. It's got an absolutely beautiful exterior. I really wanted to go inside, to see what jewels it might offer, but it's been empty for quite some time. Hopefully there's some special design inside that they can make use of if/when it gets renovated.

I went to the Hermitage Hotel event just a bit ago where it officially announced five-star status and someone from the downtown partnership told me they never saw the Hotel Indigo thing coming. The story caught a bunch of people off guard. Now Lineberry and those have to really make sure it flies.

Wow! I'm nearly speechless! This is a building that must be saved (as opposed to the Trail West, etc) and I hope this project is successful. I also hope we don't overbuild too many hotels at once. Time will tell.

I hope somebody can scare up a recent report that occupancy in DT and West End is over 70%. Can somebody confirm.

It's in my story on the site. 75.6% through Sept. $109 average room rate. That rate of course takes into account the limited service hotels and special packages offered for conventions.

Wow, all the better! Thanks.

That building reminds me a lot of the Hotel Monaco (a Kimpton Hotel) in Salt Lake City. However, it is tough to pull off a quaint, comfortable hotel in an old bank building.

Great building! It should make a perfect hotel. Nashville needs more top-flight rooms downtown. I do not think that 110 rooms is too many to add to the existing stock.

With the five-star rating on The Hermitage, hotels like Indigo, Westin, Palomar in Signature (if the latter two indeed get built), Nashville's downtown begins to look like a real downtown more so than ever. Of course, the condo towers and renovations help as well..

You are absolutely right. A real downtown has activity in the least expected places - the ones that are just around the corner. I envy Nashville's developments, just wish I could add something to the mix. Anyone care to become a venture capitalist??? LOL

I hope this plan actually sticks. I can't figure out how the math works for 7 hotel rooms per floor though, unless some of the rooms are going in the adjacent Regions building.

This couldn't happen to a better buidling downtown. By far one of my favorites in the city. Easily.

That building will look great once the exterior has been cleaned. Great location and will add even more life in that end of DT.

Big question here..................... I thought Hotel Indigo was supposed to be DT in a historic renovated building..... The site that I believed it to be is undergoing a transformation with a ton of scafolding along the exterior and garbage shutes leading to large dumptsters on the street........but what is this Hotel Indigo???? I grabbed a photo while out this morning. It is on West End just down the street from the WES........ and it's being painted keylime green...

You cant see it in the first photo but the banner is out front and there are large banners drapped over the side of the building facing DT

There are going to be 2 Hotel Indigo in Nashville and both are going in building conversons. The first is on West End in an older office building across form Palmer Plaza. The second is in the old American Trust Building on Union St. DT.

That paint looks like crap. I hope it's just primer or sealant.

I think it could be pretty sweet. West End needs a little lime green!

Actually it looks like baby crap. Whoever picked that color (even if it is a primer) must have done so at their desk, under some kind of artificial neon. It's not befitting of fireworks stand in Gattlinburg.

Funny - we drove by there the other day as they were painting and thought it looked great.. I'd wondered what they were going to do to spruce up the bunker-like exterior of that building. I like it a lot..

Thanks for making me feel not so stupid.

Ha! Thanks for not being facetious with your earlier comment about the lime green! I wasn't sure, so I just plunged on in! So, then, that's two in the FOR column :thumbsup:
