Hotel Indigo NYC Downtown – Wall Street

IHG Hotels & Resorts’ boutique lifestyle brand, Hotel Indigo, launched its latest New York property this month with an opening in the city’s Financial District. The brand’s second hotel in Manhattan, this establishment pays homage to the history of Wall Street. The hotel’s contemporary interiors were designed by Gene Kaufman Architect PC to reflect the neighborhood, with gold accents, leathers, reflective surfaces, and a vintage tape machine woven into the design of the property’s 127 rooms.

The hotel’s signature restaurant, Buttonwood, takes its name from the tree under which the Buttonwood Agreement was signed when the stock exchange was established in 1792. This restaurant now offers business lunches and aperitifs after work with a menu of New York classics. Other highlights of the new hotel include the Highwater Rooftop cocktail bar on the 25th floor. The hotel was created by The Rinaldi Group, Atlas Hospitality New York and IHG Hotels & Resorts, with Fortuna Reality Group managing the property.
