An 800-room downtown hotel slated for construction in Pan Am Plaza across from the Indiana Convention Center would carry the flag of a new Hilton brand focused on conventions and events, the hotelier announced Friday.
Hilton said Indianapolis is one of three markets where it plans to launch the Signia Hilton brand. Atlanta and Orlando are the others.
The Signia is one of two hotels planned alongside a $120 million expansion of the convention center. The hotel would include 80,000 square feet of its own meeting space.
Danny Hughes, executive vice president and president, Americas, for Hilton, told IBJ in an email the Signia brand will “offer everything that’s necessary to host great events,” including high-end technology and ritzy cuisine.
