Team Hotel Indigo Sydney Potts Point welcomes guests

Debuting in Sydney: Pro-invest Group’s neighbourhood-inspired global boutique brand opens after a multi-million-dollar "spirited" refurbishment

This week heralded a new era for Hotel Indigo Sydney Potts Point as Pro-invest Group and IHG Hotels & Resorts proudly unveiled Hotel Indigo Sydney Potts Point. The launch saw the team set to welcome guests and celebrate the brand’s introduction to Sydney’s vibrant scene.

The transformation of the 105-room hotel is a nod to the Kings Cross neighbourhood—a hub of creativity and celebration for almost a century—realised through Pro-invest Group’s extensive multi-million-dollar refurbishment. This momentous occasion marks a significant milestone in the property’s storied legacy.

Jan Smits, CEO, Asia Pacific of Pro-invest Group said of the hotel opening: “Our multi-million-dollar refurbishment has reimagined this property, introducing Hotel Indigo’s creative spirit to Sydney for the first time and adding to the incredible re-energisation taking place in this famous part of the city.”

Tucked behind the city’s iconic neon Coca-Cola sign, the new style of boutique hotel will provide curious travellers a front-row seat to King Cross’s round-the-clock culture of hospitality and entertainment. 

Mr Smits said: “Our whole team have revelled in finding ways to celebrate the storied history of the neighbourhood from arrival to departure, and we look forward to sharing Hotel Indigo Sydney Potts Point with curious travellers seeking a new style of hotel where they can stay and play.”

With a nod to the locales past, present and future as a mecca for musicians, entertainers and artists, guests are welcomed into a theatrical Lobby where a specially curated art collection sets the tone – from NFT dance projections that come alive at night to striking photographic portraits of famous and up-and-coming performance artists that have graced local stages. Guests can even add their own touch to the atmosphere, selecting vintage vinyl records to spin on the lobby’s turntable each evening.

Playful, neighbourhood-inspired elements continue on the guest room floors, with lenticular signage and commissioned artwork paying tribute to the area’s deco architecture and famed cabaret and drag show scene. Sought after city, Sydney Harbour views or distinct neon-lit streetscapes provide the outlook from creatively furnished rooms, some offering private outdoor terraces and balconies. While mini bars are generously stocked to help start a night out or kick-start the morning, an all-day in-room breakfast menu is expected to be a popular order. 

Renowned Sydney chef, Luke Mangan has also taken up residence in the neighbourhood with his new restaurant and bar, Luc-san. Another part of Pro-invest Group’s revitalisation of the site, this streetside French Izakaya is already a buzzing addition to Potts Point and places Hotel Indigo guests next door to the city’s latest dining hot spot. Hotel guests can also enjoy items from the French-Japanese menu in the comfort of their rooms.

Luke Mangan will also oversee The X Café, a bijoux-sized early morning to late afternoon café nestled in the hotel lobby serving day-break lattes to lunchtime bites every day to guests and locals.

Discovering more Potts Point bistros, boutiques and galleries by day and bars, clubs and theatre by night starts right from the hotel’s doorstep on Kings Cross Road, while Sydney’s Botanic Gardens, harbourside and the CBD are all within easy strolling distance. 

Hotel Indigo Sydney Potts Point is Pro-invest Group’s fourth owned and operated hotel in Sydney and the third Hotel Indigo in the Pro-invest portfolio, following the August opening of Hotel Indigo Melbourne on Flinders and Hotel Indigo Brisbane City Centre late last year.

Pro-invest Group has a total of 32 hotels open and in the pipeline across Australia and New Zealand. The group is IHG Hotels & Resorts’ largest franchise partner across Australasia with an extensive estate of Holiday Inn Express hotels, as well as recent openings under the Kimpton and voco brands.

I’d like to congratulate Pro-invest Group and thank them for their continued partnership that’s debuted Hotel Indigo in Sydney and helped grow the brand across Australasia.”
