Kings Cross scores new boutique opening in Hotel Indigo Sydney Potts Point
Edited by Travel Weekly

    Kings Cross’ newest hotel, the 105-room Hotel Indigo Sydney Potts Point has officially opened its doors marking a new chapter in the partnership between Pro-invest Group and IHG Hotels & Resorts.

    The unveiling of the hotel marks a new dawn for the building’s history thanks to Pro-invest Group’s multi-million-dollar refurbishment inspired by the eclectic Kings Cross neighbourhood that’s been a place for creatives and revellers for nearly a century.

    Tucked behind the city’s iconic neon Coca-Cola sign, the new style of the boutique hotel will provide curious travellers a front-row seat to King Cross’s round-the-clock culture of hospitality and entertainment.

    Playful, neighbourhood-inspired elements continue on the guest room floors, with lenticular signage and commissioned artwork paying tribute to the area’s deco architecture and famed cabaret and drag show scene.

    Sought after city, Sydney Harbour views or distinct neon-lit streetscapes provide the outlook from creatively furnished rooms, some offering private outdoor terraces and balconies. Mini bars are generously stocked to help start a night out or kick-start the morning, an all-day in-room breakfast menu is expected to be a popular order while local designer bathrobes and Biology care amenities add another level of comfort.

    Renowned Sydney chef, Luke Mangan will oversee The X Café, a bijoux-sized early morning to late afternoon café nestled in the hotel lobby serving daybreak lattes and lunchtime bites every day to guests and locals.

    “Our multi-million-dollar refurbishment has reimagined this property, introducing Hotel Indigo‘s creative spirit to Sydney for the first time and adding to the incredible re-energisation taking place in this famous part of the city,” CEO (APAC), Pro-invest Group, Jan Smits, said.

    “Our whole team have revelled in finding ways to celebrate the storied history of the neighbourhood from arrival to departure, and we look forward to sharing Hotel Indigo Sydney Potts Point with curious travellers seeking a new style of hotel where they can stay and play.”

    Hotel Indigo Sydney Potts Point is Pro-invest Group’s fourth owned and operated hotel in Sydney and the third Hotel Indigo in the Pro-invest portfolio, following the August opening of Hotel Indigo Melbourne on Flinders and Hotel Indigo Brisbane City Centre late last year.

    Pro-invest Group has a total of 32 hotels open and in the pipeline across Australia and New Zealand. The group is IHG Hotels & Resorts’ largest franchise partner across Australasia with an extensive estate of Holiday Inn Express hotels, as well as recent openings under the Kimpton and voco brands.

    “No two Hotel Indigos are alike and with Sydney’s most famous neighbourhood as its inspiration, Hotel Indigo Sydney Potts Point will be another exceptional example of the brand’s culturally rich boutique offering,” MD (APAC), IHG Hotels & Resorts, Matt Tripolone, said.

    “I’d like to congratulate Pro-invest Group and thank them for their continued partnership that’s debuted Hotel Indigo in Sydney and helped grow the brand across Australasia.”
