EVERETT, Wash. – Hotel Indigo® Everett announced today it is on track to open in August 2019 as part of the 65-acre Waterfront Place development in the heart of Fisherman’s Harbor on Port Gardener Bay. The hotel is part of the Port of Everett’s transformation of the waterfront, and it is positioned to be a gathering place where locals and visitors alike can come to relax and enjoy tranquil moments and views of the marina and bay.

An InterContinental Hotels Group® property managed and operated by Seattle-based Columbia Hospitality, the modern hotel will be Everett’s newest full-service boutique hotel and feature exciting amenities, such as a locally inspired restaurant with a seafood-forward concept, a large indoor saline swimming pool, nearly 8,000 square feet of indoor meeting and event space, over 5,000 square feet of outdoor event space, and proximity to a wide variety of outdoor recreational activities.

“We are thrilled to share Hotel Indigo with visitors and locals alike in one of the best locations in the region,” said Patty Davis, general manager of Hotel Indigo Everett. “The rich local history and stunning setting provided endless inspiration for the design and concept of the hotel and restaurant. In addition to rooms overlooking the sound and a fantastic restaurant, we’re thrilled to offer dynamic event spaces to host corporate groups, weddings, banquets and other social gatherings.We are excited to welcome everyone in soon and become part of the growing community of Everett.”

Hotel Indigo’s flexible event spaces can be customized for every occasion. From a large reception or meeting in the Grand Ballroom to an outdoor party, the property will create memorable indoor and outdoor events of all sizes. One featured space is the hardscape outdoor courtyard overlooking the water, perfect for summer weddings and private gatherings. The hotel will also offer a 79-foot private yacht called Aqua Villa for groups of up to 55 looking for a unique event setting.

The hotel embraces its location near Port Gardener Bay: 119 of the 142 guestrooms feature water views, and the design evokes a subtle nautical theme, inspired by the surrounding Port of Everett Marina. Guests will also enjoy other amenities, such as pet-friendly accommodations, a fitness facility and The Marketplace, a grab-and-go retail shop selling fresh sandwiches, salads, sundries and local goods.

The highly anticipated on-site restaurant, Jetty Bar & Grille, will serve quintessential Pacific Northwest coastal cuisine and will be open for breakfast, lunch, dinner, happy hour and weekend brunch. Chef Andrew Cross will lead the culinary team for the restaurant and Hotel Indigo. Cross’s background includes experience at other seaside properties, such as Semiahmoo Resort in Blaine, WA, as well as iconic restaurants like Canon Whiskey and Canlis in Seattle. The menu will include ingredients sourced by local purveyors, such as Lummi Island Wild and Taylor Shellfish, with a focus on approachable seafood dishes inspired by the Salish Sea. Anticipated favorites include Scuttlebutt beer-battered halibut and chips, Lummi Island smoked salmon chowder, and a variety of local oysters on the half shell. An outdoor patio will provide a beautiful summer space overlooking the marina where guests and locals can enjoy a bite and handcrafted cocktail. When the weather permits, Jetty Grille Express will be open as a food service window, selling to-go dishes for passersby and boaters exploring the area.

A variety of recreational activities are easily accessible for hotel guests, including a 3.5-mile trail for morning jogs and bike rides, paddleboard rentals and the free ferry to Jetty Island for nature trail walks and a relaxing afternoon by the beach during the summer months.

“We are thrilled for the upcoming opening of Hotel Indigo,” said Lisa Lefeber, the Port of Everett’s deputy executive director. “This historic milestone represents the completion of the first private development at Waterfront Place and a new opportunity at the recreational waterfront, contributing to the Port’s overall vision of creating a vibrant community where people can live, work and play.”

Hotel Indigo Everett is owned by a group of investors with local ties, including Omar and Christine Lee, who also own Hotel Interurban in Tukwila, WA. The hotel was designed by MZA Architecture, and Ferguson Construction is the general contractor. To learn more about Hotel Indigo, visit the hotel website..
