Hotel Indigo in Newton, Massachusetts Opens Following
a Year-long Renovation and Conversion
Hotel Indigo features the distinctive design of the brand that combines
math, art and nature in perfect symmetry. Based on timeless beauty
found in nature and realized through the Golden Mean (also known as the
Fibonacci Sequence or Phi) the design and décor of Hotel Indigo
creates a welcoming environment. Phi and the Fibonacci Sequence describe
a pattern of numbers that increases by adding the two previous numbers
until it reaches the fixed value of 1.618034—the Golden Mean. For
centuries this principle has been applied to achieve beauty and balance
in art, architecture, music and design. The use of the Golden Mean
in the design of Hotel Indigo is also reflected throughout the property.
For example, the headboards in the guestrooms are ‘Golden Rectangles,’
meaning the sides are made up of two successive Fibonacci numbers.

In keeping with the brand’s Interpret Indigo™ philosophy which emphasizes creative design interpretation of the Hotel Indigo concept to suit a property’s local market, the hotel will also offer a heated outdoor pool, hot tub and relaxation deck with cabanas outfitted with LCD flat-panel televisions, fire pits, and area heating for extended season enjoyment. All 191 guest rooms also feature such state-of-the-art elements as 32-inch LCD flat-screen televisions with high definition, MP3 docking stations, and complimentary wired and wireless high-speed internet access, available throughout the hotel.
The soul of the Hotel Indigo brand’s retail-inspired concept is renewal – thoughtful changes that are made throughout the year to keep the hotel fresh, similar to the way retailers change their window displays. The renewal concept provides even the most frequent guest a unique experience with every stay. The hotel will feature renewable elements such as vivid murals, area rugs, plush duvets and slip covers that will change periodically. Public spaces will be transformed seasonally through changing artwork, music, flora and murals.
Also, in the spirit of renewal, the hotel is taking steps to ensure that conservation and preservation also take center stage. The hotel has installed a cogeneration power system that recaptures used energy, and will operate a voluntary conservation program, which will encourage guests to reuse linens and towels, to reduce water, energy and detergent use. The hotel is committed to using recyclable glass and reducing plastic use wherever possible; takeout meals will be packaged in biodegradable containers made of sugar cane.
“The unique amenities and design features make the Hotel Indigo a perfect destination for travelers who want a boutique hotel experience,” says Paul A. Ferreira, Principal at Blue Hawk Investments. “Visitors can have the luxury amenities of a city hotel with the convenient location of the suburbs.”
Hotel Indigo is located off of Route 128 at Exit 22 (Grove Street) in Newton and directly adjacent to the Riverside MBTA Green Line station.
“We believe this location is perfect for the first Hotel Indigo in New England,” says Justin Krebs, Principal at Normandy Real Estate Partners. “There is nothing else in the market that offers a boutique hotel experience so close to the city and convenient for weekend and business travelers.”
