Hotel Indigo Guadalajara Expo

Hotel Indigo, part of IHG Hotels & Resorts’ luxury and lifestyle collection, continues to expand its footprint in Mexico, with the opening of Hotel Indigo Guadalajara Expo located in Guadalajara’s historic district, Chapalita.

Hotel Indigo Guadalajara Expo embraces its neighbourhood’s architectonic influence through a mix of classic Mexican and contemporary styles.

Originally built for the 1970 World Cup, this hotel hosted Pele and the Brazilian national team during their trip then. After a remarkable renovation, it resonates with its legacy, helping guests connect with its heritage, history and authenticity.

Carol Hoeller, Vice President of Hotel Indigo, commented:“We’ve embarked on a journey to increase our estate in the next three to five years, to 200 hotels globally and are seeing an increase in desire from both our IHG One Rewards members and investors for more lifestyle brands in Mexico.

“So we are meeting that demand with Hotel Indigo, a brand that captures the true essence of its surroundings to offer guests a gateway into local culture and community. We are excited to bring our brand to Guadalajara which is not only Mexico’s second largest city but a cultural and technological hub, filled with distinct culture and character, as unique as each of our hotels.”

The seven story, 162-room Hotel Indigo Guadalajara Expo, managed by Operadora Javipa, sits near Glorieta Chapalita – a park where artists and musicians gather and celebrate the informal nature of the neighborhood.

Other nearby spots not to be missed include several famous fountains – such as Hermana Agua –designed by Mexico’s most influential avant-garde architect, Fernando González Gortázar. And the stunning collection of art deco and Mexican modernist buildings – amongst them Finca Las Rosas, designed by Luis Barragán, which is now home to a boutique, coffee shop, and a lively events terrace that allows you to get up close and personal with one of his most joyous creations.

General Director at Operadora Javipa, said: “The history of our privileged location made for a dream spot for a Hotel Indigo property, which celebrates and elevates the communities they are in. Chapalita remains a place powered by its people, the result is local pride like no other, one which we share.”

This city is renowned for its culinary delights, and Hotel Indigo embraces this aspect wholeheartedly by showcasing the flavours and ingredients that define the local cuisine of Guadalajara and Jalisco at the brand’s on-site restaurant, JAL Cocina de Raíz, and rooftop bar Setenta -in a gentle nod to the property’s historic ties to soccer -which offers unparalleled views of the city. - TradeArabia News Service
