Hotel Indigo® Seattle Everett Waterfront is now open as the first completed private development of the 65-acre Waterfront Place project in the heart of Fisherman’s Harbor on Port Gardner Bay. The hotel is part of the Port of Everett’s transformation of the waterfront, and it is positioned to be a gathering place where locals and visitors alike are invited to relax and enjoy tranquil moments and views of the marina and bay.

An InterContinental Hotels Group® property, managed and operated by Seattle-based Columbia Hospitality, the modern hotel is Everett’s newest full-service boutique hotel and features exciting amenities, such as a locally inspired restaurant with a seafood-forward concept, a large indoor saline swimming pool, nearly 8,000 square feet of indoor meeting and event space, over 5,000 square feet of outdoor event space, and proximity to a wide variety of outdoor recreational activities.

“Welcoming our first guests to Hotel Indigo and Jetty Bar & Grille is truly special along with the enthusiastic community support that is essential to our success,” said Patty Davis, general manager of Hotel Indigo Seattle Everett Waterfront. “The tranquil setting paired with views of the Port of Everett Marina from most guestrooms is ideal for a leisurely getaway and the hotel’s amenities are perfect for special events and group meetings of all sizes. We are excited to welcome guests from near and far and look forward to being part of the vibrant and growing community here in Everett.”

Hotel Indigo’s flexible event spaces can be customized for every occasion. From a large reception or meeting in the Grand Ballroom to an outdoor party, the property has the ability to create memorable indoor and outdoor events of all sizes. One featured space is the hardscape outdoor courtyard overlooking the water, perfect for summer weddings and private gatherings.

The hotel embraces its location near Port Gardner Bay: 119 of the 142 guestrooms feature water views, and the design evokes a subtle nautical theme, inspired by the surrounding Port of Everett Marina. Guests can enjoy other amenities, such as pet-friendly accommodations, a fitness facility and The Marketplace, a grab-and-go retail shop selling fresh sandwiches, salads, sundries and local goods.

The highly anticipated on-site restaurant, Jetty Bar & Grille, serves quintessential Pacific Northwest coastal cuisine and is open for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and happy hour. Chef Andrew Cross leads the culinary team for the restaurant and Hotel Indigo. Cross’s background includes working at other seaside properties, such as Semiahmoo Resort in Blaine, WA, as well as iconic restaurants like Canon Whiskey and Canlis in Seattle.

The menu showcases ingredients sourced by local purveyors, such as Lummi Island Wild and Taylor Shellfish, with a focus on approachable seafood dishes inspired by the Salish Sea. Anticipated favorites include Scuttlebutt beer-battered halibut and chips, Lummi Island smoked salmon chowder, and a variety of local oysters on the half shell. An outdoor patio provides a beautiful space overlooking the marina where guests and locals can enjoy a bite paired with a handcrafted cocktail. Weather permitting, Jetty Grille Express is open as a food service window, selling to-go dishes for passersby and boaters exploring the area.

“Hotel Indigo and Jetty Bar & Grille, along with our other great waterfront restaurants and services, are truly putting Everett on the map as a must-visit destination. We are grateful for our partnership and the Port of Everett in making this happen,” said Mayor of Everett Cassie Franklin. “We couldn’t be happier to welcome Hotel Indigo to our city.”

A variety of recreational activities are easily accessible for hotel guests, including a 3.5-mile trail for morning jogs and bike rides, paddleboard rentals and the free ferry to Jetty Island for nature trail walks and a relaxing afternoon by the beach during the summer months.

“I am happy to officially welcome Hotel Indigo and their guests to the Port of Everett as they open their doors to the community,” said Lisa Lefeber, Port of Everett Deputy Executive Director. “This exciting and historic milestone marks the first of many openings to come to Waterfront Place, adding to the overall vibrancy and livability of this waterfront destination.”

Hotel Indigo Everett is owned by a group of investors with local ties, including Omar and Christine Lee, who also own Hotel Interurban in Tukwila, WA. The hotel was designed by MZA Architecture, and Ferguson Construction is the general contractor. Rates start at $169 a night. To make reservations or learn more about Hotel Indigo, visit
