Hotel Indigo and Kirkland Tower Vancouver, Washington


The city of Vancouver, Washington had made it a priority to begin taking full advantage of its location on the Columbia River. Enter the boutique-style Hotel Indigo, a 138-room high-rise hotel as part of Kirkland Tower with sweeping views of the river and surrounding downtown environment.

Adding Mixed Use Development to a Prime Location

Otak provided comprehensive planning and design services for the mixed-use property, which also includes 10,000 square feet of retail and 7,700 square feet of restaurant space. Kirkland Tower’s mixed-use also includes luxury condominiums across its 12-stories. The design highlights the hotel chain’s signature brand while creating an iconic destination on the prime site. A six-story atrium, second-level meeting and conference hall, rooftop bar, expansive terrace, and valet parking will provide visitors and residents with luxury amenities and an inviting setting to enjoy the riverfront festival street and parks. The hotel, one of the few Indigo properties west of the Mississippi, is within easy walking distance of downtown Vancouver.
