Chance Partners, LLC, announced the opening of Hotel Indigo Tuscaloosa Downtown - an upscale riverfront boutique hotel, minutes from the experience and tradition of the University of Alabama, and only steps away from Tuscaloosa's entertainment district. Located at 111 Greensboro Avenue and nestled on the banks of the Black Warrior River, the hotel creates a personalized experience with distinctive design and amenities expressing the history and culture of the area. The 91-room hotel debuts as Tuscaloosa’s first riverfront hotel and is Alabama’s first Hotel Indigo property, a brand which is part of InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG), one of the world’s leading hotel companies.
Each Hotel Indigo property is uniquely designed to reflect the culture, character and history of the surrounding neighborhood. When guests first arrive, the lobby provides a welcoming space with contemporary design mixed with rustic elements that convey the area’s rich Southern history of freight transportation and cotton and whiskey production. High contrast tones of vibrant yellow and deep blue are integrated with dark wood architectural elements to mimic driftwood in the natural surroundings. Guests relax in spacious guest rooms featuring modern furnishings with twists of bold color – steel gray, navy blue and vivid green - inspired by the adjacent Black Warrior River.
Debuting The Lookout, an upscale rooftop bar, guests can enjoy a craft cocktail menu and local distillery options. Dining is inspired by Southern culture at the on-site restaurant, Shoal’s Kitchen. Serving breakfast and dinner, Shoal’s Kitchen has partnered with a seasonally changing cast of local vendors such as Snow’s Bend Farms, Southfresh Farms, Heritage House Coffee & Tea, among others, to offer a fresh, locally sourced menu. Specialty menu items include the Catfish and Hushpuppies, Tuscaloosa Shrimp & Grits and Chicken Ala Alabama. With Pure Provisions -- a boutique grab-and-go option within the hotel -- neighbors and guests enjoy fresh sandwiches, snacks and beverages.
Guests also have access to a 24-hour fitness center and approximately 1,000 square feet of executive meeting space, a business center and a 2,500 square foot outdoor terrace with breathtaking views of the Black Warrior River and the Tuscaloosa Amphitheater. Additionally, the hotel is proud to provide guests with Tesla electric car charging stations. Strategically placed, the complimentary charging station allows guests to plug in when convenient and get back on the road quickly to enjoy Tuscaloosa’s distinct Southern charm. The property also features the brand’s Neighborhood Guide, an innovative touchscreen display that connects guests to each other, the local neighborhood and to Hotel Indigo locations and guests around the world. Hotel team members, many of whom are locals themselves, will share their favorite hidden gems with guests looking to explore and discover the neighborhood.
