Hip Hotel with Lakeside Pool Opens Today in North Houston

BOUTIQUE-STYLE HOTEL Indigo opens today just north of Spring, near The Woodlands. The IHG property is a part of a chain, but tailored to the individual community with bespoke design elements.

Each of the 103 guest rooms, including four suites, boasts individually unique art and a palate of earth tones with splashes of color. The building itself homages a Spanish Mission design, inspired by the Catholic missionaries who settled in the area. Installations in common spaces provide a handful of Instagrammable moments, as does the lakeside pool with an al fresco bar.

Inside, the hotel's restaurant, Crudo, offers its own stylish bar, flecked in gold to reflect the region's abundance of black gold. Food and beverage offerings include local specialties like 8th Wonder beer, Katz coffee and Alex Bregman's salsa, Breggy Bomb.

"With our unique design and thoughtful touches taking cues from the local history, architecture, colors and culinary scene, we are able to provide guests a window to the neighborhood through our hotel before exploring it for themselves," said hotel GM Brandon Kitchen in a statement.
