Columbus, Georgia is a vibrant and exciting city with so much to offer. Whether you are looking for sun-filled days on the Chattahoochee River or an adventurous nightlife, Columbus has it all. But if you’re looking for a unique boutique hotel experience, there is no better choice than Hotel Indigo Columbus.
Located on the iconic Chattahoochee River, Hotel Indigo Columbus at Riverfront Place is situated in the heart of Uptown Columbus, which serves as the city’s epicenter for dining, exploring, shopping and entertainment. Just steps away from the Chattahoochee River Walk, Mathews D. Swift Park, Banks Food Hall and Whitewater Express. The hotel is the latest addition to its developer W.C. Bradley Real Estate’s most significant commercial development to date, Riverfront Place. When completed, Riverfront Place will serve to encompass the popular “live, work play lifestyle” for both residents and visitors alike. There is a wide variety of retail, restaurants, and nightlife options all within walking distance of the hotel. Its prime location is perfect for those who enjoy the outdoors, as well as business and leisure travelers who are looking for a place to relax.
IHG® Resorts and Hotels recognize the importance of preserving natural environments and the intimate stories that each place holds. Therefore, they’ve devoted themselves to developing the “Neighborhood Story,” a global initiative to promote responsible hotel operations that prompt community engagement. Guests staying at Hotel Indigo Columbus will notice the building’s interior and exterior design pay homage to Columbus’ rich history, with certain elements in the furnishings and artwork referencing specific aspects of the city’s past. For example, the green woven handles on the nightstands reference Fort Benning, and the numbers “243” on the dresser mark the elevation of Columbus above sea level. Additionally, the old pine wood at the elevator entrance was reclaimed from one of W.C. Bradley’s mills, and the artwork throughout the hotel honors Columbus’ diverse history as an artists’ haven, nature preserve, military outpost, and technology hub.
Perhaps one of the more popular amenities the hotel provides are its two unique dining options: Eighteen85 Rooftop Bar & Kitchen and Denim & Oak Riverfront Restaurant. Eighteen85 derived its name from the year the W.C. Bradley Company was founded, and features a design inspired by blues legend and Columbus native Ma Rainey. It is the only rooftop bar and restaurant in the Columbus area that overlooks the Chattahoochee River. The hotel’s second restaurant and bar, Denim & Oak, was named after the textile industry that once flourished in the area and the forests that surround it and offers farm-to-table dining in a charming setting directly on the riverbank.
