Under the Coca-Cola sign: a new beginning

It has been the location of the Diamant Hotel, the Millennium Hotel and, more recently, the Larmont by Lancemore.

Now 2-14 Kings Cross Road, Potts Point will be home to the Hotel Indigo Sydney Potts Point.

New owners Pro-Invest have signed a franchise agreement with IHG Hotels & Resorts and an extensive renovation is planned to bring the hotel in one of Sydney's liveliest neighbourhoods back to to life.

Set to reopen late this year, the multi-million-dollar transformation of the former Larmont Sydney by Lancemore into a Hotel Indigo marks a new chapter in the property's history - and will be the brand's debut in the city.

The 105-room hotel is in walking distance of the CBD - although it is an uphill climb on the way back - and is situated behind the famous Kings Cross Coca-Cola sign.

The revamped hotel will feature Art Deco nuances.

With 262 open or or in the pipeline globally, the Hotel Indigo brand is one of the world's fastest-growing boutique brands

Hotel Indigo Sydney Potts Point will be the fourth Hotel Indigo in Australia, and third Hotel Indigo in the Pro-invest portfolio. 

Jan Smits, CEO, Asia Pacific, for Pro-invest Group, said: “We purchased this property knowing we had the opportunity to bring it to life in a whole new way for guests and the local community.

"With our multi-million-dollar renovation, and rebrand to Hotel Indigo, the next chapter of this hotel's history is being written.

“The hotel's location puts it front and centre of Sydney City Council's revitalisation program and the re-energising of the area's 24-hour economy. The resurgence of this neighbourhood promises to revive the energy it's been so famous for, and our team can't wait to be a part of that.”

IHG is enjoying a major period of growth in the region, with numerous openings under brands including InterContinental, Kimpton, Vignette Collection, voco, Crowne Plaza and the Holiday Inn brand family.
