Gold Coast’s Hotel Indigo Will Take on Original Name Post-Renovations

The Hotel Indigo, acquired out of foreclosure by San Diego-based Interwest Capital in 2016, will get a “new” name following the completion of a $9-million renovation. Its post-renovation moniker will be the Claridge Hotel, the name under which this 165-key Gold Coast property opened in 1923.

Locally-based Oxford Hotels & Resorts, an affiliate of Oxford Capital Group, will manage the renamed Claridge. “We thought resurrecting and reinventing the Claridge name gives it a nice hospitality orientation,” said Oxford Capital CEO John Rutledge. “It has the feel of a home away from home.”

Interwest will continue to own the property, which took on the Hotel Indigo brand in 2005. The renaming will take effect sometime next month, when the renovation program designed by Chicago’s Gettys Group will be completed.
