IHG and City Tattersalls Club team up to open Hotel Indigo Sydney Centre

The momentum behind IHG’s Hotel Indigo brand in Australasia continues with the signing of a new agreement with City Tattersalls Club (CTC) in Sydney.

Scheduled to open in 2025, Hotel Indigo Sydney Centre will sit atop the iconic club’s premises in a newly renovated, 49-storey, mixed-use tower that includes new restaurants, event space, an exclusive business lounge, retail, health and wellbeing facilities, along with a circa-110-room hotel and 246 residential apartments.

CTC’s 125-year history will be the inspiration for Hotel Indigo’s famous neighbourhood story concept, which will embrace the tale of a club that was founded by 25 bookmakers and is now one of the most sophisticated and oldest community clubs in Sydney, boasting more than 20,000 members.

According to IHG, that history will influence every element in the hotel offering, including design, food and beverage and service offerings across its neighbourhood café, bar and gym.

Guests at the hotel will also benefit from access to the facilities within the broader development, including meeting and event space, and the exclusive lounge.

Hotel Indigo Sydney Centre will enjoy a prime location within the Pitt Street frontage, just a stone’s throw away from Pitt Street Mall – the pedestrianised heart of Sydney CBD – and the city’s premier shopping, food and entertainment precincts.

Abhijay Sandilya, vice president of development across Australasia, Japan and the Pacific at IHG, said: “There’s something wonderful that happens when great brands come together, so it’s an honour for IHG to partner with one of Sydney’s oldest and most beloved business and sporting clubs to bring another amazing Hotel Indigo to Australasia.

“It’s clear that our boutique neighbourhood brand has truly resonated with guests and owners, and I’m looking forward to seeing how City Tattersalls Club’s rich history plays into the neighbourhood story to create a spectacular hotel.

“With a perfect location in the very heart of Sydney and the development’s fantastic facilities, Hotel Indigo Sydney Centre will undoubtedly become a favourite destination for business and leisure guests alike.”

Marcelo Veloz, chief executive at CTC, said: “When we made the decision to open a hotel as part of our exciting new development, we knew it would not only need to be a brand that would do justice to the history of the City Tattersalls Club legacy, it would need the power of a global system behind it as travel ramps up again in 2021.

“After months of assessing hotel brands, we resolved that Hotel Indigo was the perfect brand for our club and the CBD, and we look forward to developing a successful partnership with IHG in the years ahead.”

There are currently 126 Hotel Indigo-branded hotels open globally and another 99 in the pipeline.

In Australasia, Hotel Indigo Adelaide Markets will open in March 2021 – the first to open in this market – with more to come in destinations including Melbourne and Auckland.
