Hotel Indigo opens for business on Wall Street

by | 23 Mar 2022 | Design

The first guests are now being welcomed at Hotel Indigo NYC Downtown – Wall Street, which sports attractive interiors by Gene Kaufman Architect PC, in the Big Apple’s Financial District.

This exciting addition to IHG’s boutique lifestyle brand aims to capture the spirit of the world’s most famous financial hub.

A historic location

The second Manhattan property for the Hotel Indigo brand, Hotel Indigo NYC Downtown – Wall Street offers a new place for travellers to stay amid the towers of the city’s Financial District

Claudio Pereira, general manager of Hotel Indigo NYC Downtown – Wall Street, said: “We are truly excited to have opened the doors to this modern hotel on an intersection rich with history. New York City’s Financial District has long been celebrated for its abundant energy, and our hotel will welcome guests with warm, gracious service and the amenities they need to fully embrace their experience of the local neighbourhood.”

The stylish property is close to the energy of South Street Seaport and Stone Street, and just moments away from subways and ferries providing access to downtown sites including One World Observatory, the Fraunces Tavern Museum, Battery Park and – of course – the New York Stock Exchange.

A reflection of the area

The newly opened hotel’s interiors, designed by Gene Kaufman Architect PC, reflect this storied area through the inclusion of gold accents, rich leathers, reflective surfaces and a vintage ticker tape machine, referencing the business that has been conducted in the vicinity for centuries.

Hotel Indigo NYC Downtown – Wall Street’s 127 guestrooms each feature a headboard showcasing an abstract interpretation of an interior oyster shell in honour of the tradesmen who shared oysters here throughout history. Plaid detailing is then integrated into the wardrobes as a nod to the Wall Street uniform.

Taking its name from the Buttonwood Agreement that brokers signed when the stock exchange was first founded in 1792, the hotel’s signature restaurant Buttonwood provides the setting for business lunches and after-work aperitifs. New York classics on the menu include matzo ball soup and truffle grilled cheese, with a wood-smoked evening cocktail programme paying homage to the buttonwood tree that the eponymous agreement was signed beneath.

A real highlight of the property, meanwhile, is the 25th-floor Highwater Rooftop, serving up classy cocktails with a breath-taking view. The Hotel Indigo brand now has 130 hotels across the world, with 114 more in the pipeline.
