Say hello to Australia's hottest new hotel brand—Hotel Indigo, elevating the style game across the country. With 143 global hotels, the brand’s bringing its boutique vibes to down under with four chic pads across Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane and Adelaide. Each hotel is immersed in the local art, culture, and culinary delights that make the city unique. 

Nestled into the most vivacious walkable neighbourhoods with hidden haunts and cosy corners aplenty, we’re a tad obsessed with the unique themes and vibes of each lush spot. From rooftop bars serving up a side of city view with your sips, to art-filled lobbies and modern eclectic interior design, we’re ditching the sterile stays for staycays and adventure pads with a twist.

Hotel Indigo Melbourne on Flinders

Dive into Melbourne’s artist core at Hotel Indigo Melbourne on Flinders, where the vibrant essence of Flinders Lane unfolds right in the historical bustling heart of the CBD. Immerse yourself in the Hollywood-glam of the lights, camera, action-themed styling inspired by legendary artist Helmut Newton that echoes throughout this chic space. From the art gallery lobby to the bright, eclectic furnishings and street art views directly out your window, this is an urban canvas of cool for those explorers wanting to unlock the hidden gems to dine, drink, shop and play around the city.

Hotel Indigo Adelaide Markets 

Sitting pretty in one of Adelaide’s most celebrated cultural hubs, Hotel Indigo Adelaide Markets is all about bright, bold interiors and pieces that pay homage to the city’s festivals and local artistic flair. Head sky high at Merrymaker rooftop bar for a sip above the city or make a splash with a dip to cool down after a day of exploring the city’s best markets and bar scene, before heading downstairs to Market & Meander for a multicultural culinary journey. With locally-influenced design elements like copper fixtures that tell the story of South Australia’s rich mining history and Moroccan-inspired tessellated tiles, there’s a ton to love at this bright, light-filled spot.

Perfectly poised in one of Sydney’s most bustling leafy suburbs, Hotel Indigo Sydney Potts Point oozes lavish design—think moody crimson velvet walls, decadent marble bars and meticulously-curated artwork inspired by Kings Cross’s vibrant spirit at every turn. Tucked away off Penny’s Lane, casual on-site wine bar Luc-San slings French and Japanese-inspired cuisine for late-night date nights infused with Chablis and Sake. Once you've dined, meander on up and check out the spectacular twinkling lights of the harbour from your spacious king room.
