Marshall Hotels & Resorts Opens 63-Room Hotel Indigo in Birmingham
BIRMINGHAM, ALA. — Marshall Hotels & Resorts has opened the 63-room Hotel Indigo Birmingham Five Points S-UAB. Located in the Five Points South area, Birmingham’s arts, entertainment and dining district, the hotel is near attractions including the Birmingham Botanical Gardens, McWane Science Center and the Birmingham Civil Rights Museum. In addition, the property is a half-mile from University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB). The building was originally designed in the 1930s for medical offices and was converted into a hotel in the 1980s. Marshall Hotels completed a $5 million renovation to convert the hotel from the Hotel Highland Downtown to a Hotel Indigo, a chain of boutique hotels under the InterContinental Hotels Group umbrella. The hotel features the Rx lounge, a themed bar and restaurant that captures the building’s medical arts origins.
