Located in the heart of downtown Los Angeles with convenient access to the burgeoning art, culture, entertainment and nightlife scene of the city, Hotel Indigo allows guests to experience the thriving creativity, urban vibe and diversity of DTLA. Hotel Indigo’s eclectic but cohesive interiors pull influence from prominent periods of Los Angeles’s dynamic past from the 1890s to 1920s, including the Fiesta de las Flores, which is now the Rose Parade, the theaters and galas of the Golden Age of entertainment downtown, the prohibition period, and the Jewel district. Tailored elements relating to these historic time periods will surprise and delight guests, along with a contemporary approach to the extensive amenities and delightful views from its top-level bar.
