Sydney is set to welcome its first Hotel Indigo in its CBD.

The hotel, signed by IHG and Watson Elite, is set to open in 2021.

The press release noted that 'no two Hotel Indigo properties are the same' and it will draw on the rich heritage of Sydney's Central precinct.

Hotel Indigo Sydney Central’s design will draw its unique identity from the neighbourhood’s rich heritage and the nuances of the site.

The cantilevered northern wing will provide a backdrop to its neighbour, the heritage-listed Corporation Building, while a grand artwork will become a distinctive external feature, celebrating the hotel’s location within the Haymarket entertainment precinct.

Inside, the design will ensure the hotel fits naturally into the neighbourhood, telling stories of the local culture by weaving together rich materials, colour palette and custom pieces from local artists, photographers and furniture makers.

The 168-room hotel will include a restaurant, café and bar which will echo the produce markets were located in Haymarket from the early 20th century through to the 1980s. 

It will also include five suites, rooftop terraces for meetings and events with views over the city and a gym.

IHG's Abhijay Sandilya said he expects the hotel to become one of Sydney's leading boutique hotels.

“Hotel Indigo Sydney Central will be IHG’s first lifestyle-branded boutique hotel in Sydney, providing its signature ‘effortless authenticity’ to guests visiting Australia’s largest business and tourist hub," he said.

"It’s also the third Hotel Indigo signing for Australia, demonstrating the appetite for a hotel that offers a local and unique experience as well as the reassurance of a global hotel chain.” 

“We expect Hotel Indigo Sydney Central to become one of the city’s leading boutique hotels, making its mark thanks to its unique, eclectic style.

"It will perfectly complement our existing midscale to luxury IHG assets across this landmark city, building IHG’s scale in Australia’s largest city.”

Launched in 2004, Hotel Indigo is the world’s first globally branded boutique hotel brand.

It launched in Asia Pacific in January 2015 with the opening of Hotel Indigo Bangkok Wireless Road, Thailand, followed by the opening of Hotel Indigo Singapore Katong, Singapore in July 2016 and then Hotel Indigo Bali Seminyak Beach in late 2017.

There are currently 82 Hotel Indigo properties (10,645 rooms) in the global pipeline.
