Nice place but pricey

I had a very pleasant stay at the Indigo. The room was clean and QUIET - even though the hotel was sold out- and very comfortable. I like the green features. My visit coincided with UGA graduation and the price for the room was sky high. For that much $$ I expected things to be a bit more cushy. But all in all, it was a nice stay.

Fancy withouth heart

The receptionist treated us as if she was doing us a favor. There was no southern hospitality, no smile, she was very happy to inform we would be charged $10 a day for parking. The place felt like a museum of modern art. Would you like to sleep at a museum of contemporary art? Maybe yuppies couples do. But to me other accommodations nearby looked much more inviting!

Hip Hotel

This hotel was very hip. It could have been cleaner. The room was very ambient. Mood lighting. Comfortable bed. I will go back.

Overboard on the Eco stuff

There were several buckets left in the room. At first I thought the cleaners had left them. Upon further investigation they were recycling buckets. Overall hotel was clean and quiet. No carpet in the room was a plus.

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

The hotel charges $10 per day for parking. If you can snag some street parking nearby that would be good.

Anniversary trip

Trendy hotel located steps from downtown. Room was nice, bathroom was quite big. Hardwood floors in the room with modern furniture and nicer finishings throughout. Staff was exceptionally courteous and helpful and allowed us to check in early (probably helped that it was a quite weekend). Parking is on-site and $10 per night, which isn't bad (not sure how other hotels nearby compare, but for Athens it didn't seem unreasonable). Rate for the room was competitive. No coffee machine in the room or free coffee downstairs, which would be a nice improvement. There is a decent gym downstairs, but no pool. Overall it was great for what we wanted for our anniversary weekend--something close to downtown with a little more class and style than a typical mid-price hotel.

Parking Fees!!!! ask first!

Very good overall in terms of cleanliness and service - but watch out for the expensive parking charge! Parking is NOT FREE at the Indigo.

Nice room, great shower -

Explored Athens - cool college town. Bridal rehearsal dinner nearby. Wished hotel had a pool. Found entrance to hotel confusing - signage would help. Shower door squealed & could use some grease. Vending machine had only liquids & nothing within 2+ blocks @ night for snacks. Map from concierge was helpful to exploring town as was small booklet in room. Maids were pleasant & helpful.

Shopping tip: Short walk from hotel

Found 3 neat thrift/ consignment shops within 6 block s of hotel. Chilies was If you like used cowboy boots this is your town! Barmaids @ mcCoys helped us find 24 hr CVS , IHOP, Chicos, TjMax & PO which required car to access - they were near St. mary's hospital . Last Resort restaurant had great food, ambience & waitstaff & was next to one of the 2 nd hand stores near the university.

Posh Athens Hotel

We had a wonderful time at the Indigo Hotel. The rooms are very modern but comfortable. I was particularly impressed with the customer service. The front desk staff was very helpful in making cab reservations and giving directions. Parking was secure since you had to use your room key to enter gated lot. I would definately recommend the Indigo to my friends and family.
