Staff Report From Charleston CEO

Monday, August 6th, 2018

Hotel Indigo Mount Pleasant, the first Hotel Indigo in The Palmetto State, has officially opened.  Located just minutes from Charleston, one of the world’s most celebrated cities, the new five-story boutique hotel offers discriminating guests an affordable and convenient option to Downtown Charleston hotels.

Hotel Indigo Mount Pleasant has 158 distinctively styled guestrooms (including seven suites); a full-service restaurant and bar (eliza’s bar + kitchen); a resort-style oasis with pool, indoor/outdoor bar, cabanas, fire feature and sun chairs; 6,000-square-feet of meeting space; state-of-the-art fitness center; yoga room; and complimentary self-parking.  Located at 250 Johnnie Dodds Boulevard, Hotel Indigo Mount Pleasant is just across the Arthur Ravenel Jr. Bridge, the “Gateway to Historic Downtown Charleston.”  The hotel’s easy access to the Charleston International Airport, US Highway 17, I-526 and I-26 makes for a quick and comfortable drive to beautiful beaches, award-winning golf courses, Patriots Point Naval & Maritime Museum, plantations, gardens and other area attractions.   

The hotel’s namesake indigo, a plant that produces a blue dye and was an important part of the state’s economy in the 1700’s, is commemorated throughout Hotel Indigo Mount Pleasant.  Elements include striking walls, carpeting, furniture and columns in the hotel’s public spaces, guestrooms and suites, and meeting space.  Eliza’s bar + kitchen was named to commemorate Eliza Lucas Pinckney, an extraordinary Charlestonian who developed indigo in the Lowcountry and turned it into one of the state’s most important cash crops.

Executive Chef Alecia Angioletti and her culinary team serve breakfast and dinner daily at eliza’s bar + kitchen.  At dinner, a wide variety of delicious menu items prepared with local ingredients from area farmers and purveyors are offered in a relaxed and sophisticated setting.  

Operated by Atlanta-based NorthPointe Hospitality, Hotel Indigo Mount Pleasant also features 6,000-square-feet of custom-crafted gathering space, including the spacious 3,000-square-feet Palmetto Ballroom that can accommodate up to 250 guests and may be divided into separate meeting rooms.
