The Hotel Indigo Everett held a grand opening party on Wednesday. The four-story, 142-room hotel, which overlooks Port Gardner and the Port of Everett’s Waterfront Place, opened this summer. It is the first completed private development of the port’s Waterfront Place, a 65-acre, multi-million dollar development near 13th Street and West Marine View.
In 2018, Columbia Hospitality, which operates the hotel, and the port agreed to a lease that will pay the Port of Everett $15,000 a month for up to 80 years. The lease will be reviewed every 10 years for market value and inflation adjustments.
Seattle-based Columbia operates more than a dozen hotels in Washington, including the Salish Lodge & Spa at Snoqualmie Falls and Semiahmoo Resort in Blaine.
