Hotel Indigo Brooklyn to Open on October 4 at $224 a Night [UPDATED]
UPDATE 8.15.12: Sike. The Hotel Indigo Brooklyn actually opened as initially promised on August 1st, even though when we wrote this story the hotel's website was saying October 4. Nevertheless, you can check out our in-person visit of the new spot right here.
A few weeks ago, we learned that the forthcoming Brooklyn hotel, Hotel 718, would instead turn into the Hotel Indigo Brooklyn with an opening date of August 1.
Well, it's still going to be an Indigo but the opening date has been moved to October 4. The hotel's website is up and running and we found rates for $224 a night for a queen-sized bed. That rate also includes a 37" HDTV, free WiFi and even a microwave and refrigerator. A king room was going for $254 a night while a king suite was $324.
We couldn't see any square footage measurements and we're not sure we can trust those room photos. The first one looks like it is up to Hotel Indigo standards with that hardwood floor. But the second one is a shot of the rooms at Aloft Brooklyn. What the what? See for yourself below.
What are Aloft's rooms doing on the Hotel Indigo Brooklyn's site?
Regardless of the website snafu, the hotel promises the guestrooms will feature plush bedding, spa-style bathrooms, hardwood floors, and of course, that beloved free WiFi.
The rest of the hotel will feature murals in the public spaces depicting Old World New York; freshly prepared dishes at the Brooklyn Cafe which will serve breakfast, lunch and dinner as well as room service; a bar/lounge scene and even a small fitness center.
While we were hoping to see an Indigo grow in Brooklyn this August, we guess we can hold out until October.
