IHG Hotels & Resorts opened its first premium hotel in the nation’s oldest city, voco St. Augustine-Historic Area. This new property offers guests an upscale experience just a short walk to Downtown and area attractions.

The hotel’s new bar overlooks the rooftop pool and is focal point for the lobby. The bar features a locally hand-crafted countertop in deep navies, sea blues and shimmering hints of gold set in a pearlized background. The guestrooms are designed with a soothing color scheme of rich navy and crisp white, with a mix of local photography and colorful abstract artwork. 

“We are thrilled to host guests visiting St. Augustine and invite them to come on in and feel the voco difference,” says Scott Russom, general manager, voco St. Augustine-Historic Area, in a press statement. “Together with IHG, we’ve created a hotel experience that’s unique to the market. Our elevated design and personalized service deliver a premium stay, while the unstuffy atmosphere allows guests to be themselves.”

Voco St. Augustine-Historic Area offers hosted service and upscale amenities including a fitness center and pool with sun deck. Each of the 50 guest rooms feature voco touches to make the most of “me time,” including indulgent beds dressed in sustainable linen, high-end bath products and premium coffee. The design-forward bar is perfect for living the “voco life” and socializing, and the BLVD bistro offers breakfast options and a menu of local seafood dishes and small plates. 

Set on the Anastasia Island by the Bridge of Lions, voco St. Augustine-Historic Area is located near historic Old Town shopping, beaches and favorite attractions including Matanzas Bay, the Lightner Museum and the St. Augustine Lighthouse. Guests can enjoy strolls on the city’s 17th-century streets to explore the local boutiques, art galleries and eateries, or sightsee from a horse-drawn carriage or trolley.

“The opportunity to reinvigorate a local property that celebrates this historic area while delivering a playful, trusted experience to our guests instantly attracted us to this unique project,” said Bryan Greiner, president, Augustine Development Group, in a press statement. “As a St. Augustine company, we’re proud to bring the unique character and premier offerings of the voco brand to the local community under the trusted umbrella of the IHG Hotels & Resorts.”

As part of IHG Hotels & Resorts, voco St. Augustine-Historic Area is part of IHG Rewards. Voco St. Augustine-Historic Area is the second location under the brand to open in the Americas. Other voco properties now open or coming soon are located in Chicago, New York City, New Orleans, Olympia, Washington and Columbia, MO.
