Hotel Indigo

A unique location nestled between Old Town’s iconic cobblestones to the north and the Potomac’s storied banks to the east, this boutique hotel showcases the neighborhood’s dynamic allure. Within charming surroundings of Alexandria, in the middle of one of the busiest ports in America, Hotel Indigo is an enclave of colonial treasures and historic waterfront architecture, which is evident throughout the hotel. Take in views of the river from the guest rooms or from the restaurant overlooking the water, then head out to explore the quaint streets of Alexandria, once home to George Washington, Robert E. Lee, and Jim Morrison.

The hotel includes 121 rooms in all, including 43 waterfront-facing rooms, 67 city-facing rooms, and 10 patio-facing rooms. Restaurant Hummingbird Bar & Kitchen, run by Chef Cathal Armstrong of Restaurant Eve, Eamonn’s, PX, and Society Fair, is also located on-site. The restaurant features a seafood centric menu, a raw bar, and a full cocktail menu. It is open for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and Sunday brunch.

The hotel is part of a larger redevelopment of the waterfront, spearheaded by Carr, that includes residential and retail development, a fitness center, business center, and two meeting rooms.

In addition to other amenities, there’s also a library, an outdoor patio, and a small market in the lobby stocked with baked goods from Together We Bake and Society Fair, beer from Port City Brewing Co., and candy from Blüprint Chocolates.

Enjoy a leisurely bite to eat at the on-site restaurant, or have a drink at the bar/lounge. Satisfy your hunger from the comfort of your room with room service. Start your day off with breakfast which is available for a fee.
