InterContinental Hotels Group and Salta Properties have signed a management agreement for a Hotel Indigo in Melbourne’s heritage-listed Docklands waterfront precinct, due to open in 2019.
The 170-room Hotel Indigo Melbourne Docklands will boast a resort-style pool and gym, a meeting room, as well as a street-facing neighbourhood restaurant and bar split over two levels.

The property is the second Hotel Indigo confirmed for Australia and New Zealand, following the signing of Hotel Indigo Brisbane Fortitude Valley in late 2016.
Karin Sheppard, COO Australasia & Japan, IHG said: “The Hotel Indigo brand is extremely important to our continued growth in Australia, as we know the appeal that these ‘local’ hotels have for our guests.”
Sam Tarascio, executive chairman of Salta Properties, added: “With some 20 million visitors expected to visit the Docklands each year, it’s great timing to be developing this hotel in Melbourne’s new and contemporary neighbourhood.”
