The Hotel Indigo is thataway!

More great news for Disney lovers--a Hotel Indigo is opening in Anaheim near Disneyland.

Indigo's parent company, InterContinental Hotel Group, has converted the Holiday Inn Express at 435 Katella Avenue, near the convention center, into The Hotel Indigo Anaheim, a"retro-style" hotel with 104 rooms, a pool, a fitness center and restaurant, The Chambers Bar & Bistro. (The rebranding was made possible by New Century Enterprises, LLC who poured about $5 million into the property.)

As with all Hotel Indigos, the surrounding area and its history play an important in the hotel's identity. But how does this work when the surrounding area is ruled by Mickey? Well, Indigo went way back for inspiration. Apparently, the hotel is located near what used to be a wagon trail that connected several ranches responsible for producing nearly half of America's walnuts in the early 1900s. Seriously. So the Hotel Indigo Anahemi now features mosaic murals with blooming walnut trees. (No nutcrackers in the minibars though.)

Additionally, the hotel's restaurant is an homage to the Chambers Ranch which was home to the families who made their living growing walnuts.

Rates at the Hotel Indigo start at just $159 next weekend. However, the website is still showing some old photos of the Holiday Inn Express but the hotel is indeed a Hotel Indigo now.
