HATTIESBURG, MS (July 31, 2018) – IHG (InterContinental Hotels Group) is proud to announce the opening of its newest location, The Hotel Indigo®-Hattiesburg. The first and only Hotel Indigo in Mississippi opened July 26, 2018.

The Hotel Indigo-Hattiesburg hotel is located at South 31st Ave. and Chevy Chase Dr. and is within walking distance to the University of Southern Mississippi and The Avenues. The five-story boutique hotel features 100 rooms and business conveniences such as a 24/7 business center with wireless internet and printing available.

“All of the team is really excited to be a part of this, especially with it being the first one in the state,” said Rhonda Cunningham, general manager of Hotel Indigo-Hattiesburg. “This is such a beautiful hotel with custom-detailed work – there’s nothing else like it.”

Each Hotel Indigo® property is uniquely designed to reflect the culture, character and history of the surrounding neighborhood. The Hotel Indigo-Hattiesburg hotel provides the perfect destination for travelers looking for an experience that is truly reflective of the Hub City’s timber and rail industry, as well as the University of Southern Mississippi.

“We have murals throughout that reflect the railroad and timber industry and are very artsy,” said Cunningham. “It’s not your normal chain, box hotel. We’ve customized all the features and the décor. We’re telling our neighborhood’s story.”

Guests can also visit Brass Hat, the hotel’s restaurant/bar reminiscent of a 1930s railroad dining car.

“We’re very excited for Hotel Indigo to open their doors to Hattiesburg residents and visitors this August,” said Micajah Sturdivant, president of MMI Hotel Group. “Plans are underway for a ribbon cutting ceremony, and once the date is set, we encourage the public to attend and find out all they (The Hotel Indigo®-Hattiesburg) have to offer.”
