Every Hotel Indigo has a neighborhood story, and the Atlanta Midtown’s is “visual music.” The theme was inspired by the famous Fox Theatre, located a stone’s throw from the property. The experience starts at the check-in desk, which was designed to look like a drum set. A collage of theater tickets from the past 30 years decorates the wall behind it. In the rooms, you may see a mural that makes it look like you’re either attending a concert or starring in the show.
The property is located in the former Cox-Carlton Hotel, which was built in 1925 as an apartment hotel for men. The top floors were reserved for members of an elite fraternity, named the “Bell House Boys”. It opened as the very first Hotel Indigo in 2004. Now a historic landmark, the hotel has the same layout as the Cox-Carlton, but the updated rooms feature wood flooring, flat-screen televisions, free Wi-Fi, and Aveda products.
