InterContinental Hotels Group’s Hotel Indigo® brand has opened its first hotel in Pennsylvania, the 135-room Hotel Indigo Pittsburgh East Liberty. Located at 123 North Highland Avenue, this unique hotel is both an adaptive reuse and new build property comprised of four buildings representing four different eras of Pittsburgh’s history, including the building that formerly housed the Governor Hotel. The boutique hotel sits in the heart of Pittsburgh’s rejuvenated and thriving cultural district making it easy to discover the local neighborhood scene.
East Liberty’s nightlife and theatre scene was first brought to life by innovators such as Carnegie and Mellon, and is now a flourishing cultural center with several art venues, trendy boutiques and historic sites. When guests first arrive at the Hotel Indigo Pittsburgh East Liberty, they will be greeted by staff outfitted in uniforms custom created by local designer Kiya Tomlin. Guests will immediately be drawn further into the hotel by the art, photography and architecture incorporated into the hotel’s design which uniquely brings East Liberty’s theatrical neighborhood story to life at every touch point.
At the hotel’s restaurant and bar, Wallace’s TapRoom, guests can enjoy an American Tavern style menu along with one of many signature cocktails including the S’Liberty Swizzle. The drink features rum hailing from local distillery Wigle’s Craft Sprits which was the first distillery in Pittsburgh since prohibition, and the only one still currently in the region.
The guest room décor features a nod to the majestic theatre era with a velvet curtain entrance, theatre inspired murals and lamps designed to mirror stage lights, while photo stills of vintage movie Academy Leaders mark each floor in front of the guest elevators.
Guestrooms feature plush bedding, hard-surface flooring with area rugs and spa-inspired bathrooms. In addition, the hotel features a two-room Governor’s Suite which offers a private sitting parlor, bar area and master suite with a separate powder room.
