Hotel Indigo Harrisburg, PA
Pennsylvania’s capitol, Harrisburg, is defined by its temperament that mirrors the Susquehanna River, the longest and oldest river in the Continental US. Thoughtfully crafted textiles, lighting, and furniture are inspired by the Walnut Street pedestrian bridge and the Susquehanna River. Pops of red pay nod both to the beloved Pride of the Susquehanna Riverboat and the fire that once burned down the original Capitol building. The tenacity of Harrisburg’s people kept the Capitol from relocating to Pittsburgh or Philadelphia, and a grandeur Capitol building was erected. Indigo’s carpet design, ceiling murals and artwork pay tribute to the new Capitol building that was completed in 1906 with the artistic help of Violet Oakley, the first American Woman to receive a public mural commission. A portrait of Violet herself can be found subtly in plain sight at the hotel.
