​EL PASO - Hotel Indigo has opened in Downtown El Paso in a 53-year-old building that was transformed through a yearlong multimillion-dollar renovation.

The building at 325 N. Kansas St., a block from City Hall, was gutted and turned into a sleek, hip, 119-room boutique hotel at a cost of more than $12 million.

It's part of the Indigo chain started in 2004 by InterContinental Hotels Group.

The hotel employs about 45 people. Rooms at the hotel currently cost $119 to $229 a night.

The hotel's ground-floor restaurant is still under construction and is expected to open by the end of February, said Miguel Diaz, the hotel's general manager.

The 12-story building, with a three-level parking garage sandwiched between its ground floor and seven floors of hotel rooms, housed several hotel brands over the years.

Madhi Nair, one of the hotel's owners​, estimated it will take at least six months to get business to an ideal 70 percent average nightly occupancy.
