Our Story

Our Story

At the Hotel Indigo® Newark Downtown hotel, you’ll notice a unique connection between our boutique hotel and the neighborhood. Our building was erected in 1912 and designed by Cass Gilbert as the National State Bank; we still honor these roots today with a front desk created from reclaimed teller desks and by integrating the original bank vault into our restaurant’s design. With exposed brick, beautiful windows, and unique loft configurations, our refreshing guest rooms all feature décor and artwork that reflect the neighborhood’s spirit of innovation and invention. Our restaurant, Alva, invents dishes full of local flavor, while our Skylab bar features freshly prepared cocktails, all just one block from the Prudential Center and a short walk to the New Jersey Performing Arts Center (NJPAC).
