Nice hotel, great location. Perfect for a quick visit with our son! We’ll be back.

The stay was greatbut room waS not ready at check in

I loved this hotel! Great location! Hip & inviting. We stayed in a two room suite and it was awesome! So well decorated and so well laid out! Super comfy king bed. Great hotel experience. I had been looking for an Airbnb bc I wanted more than one room and homey feel. The suite we stayed in #231 delivered!

Love this hotel. Do not love the extra parking fee.

I’ve stayed here several times before and always have a great experience

Great hotel! Plan to stay there the next time we’re in Athens. Easy walk to downtown and the university.

Hotel was really nicely decorated! Felt super modern. Staff was really friendly. It's a bit farther from the main strip than a few other hotels, but we are talking a block or two, so its no big deal. Would definitely stay there again.

The hotel was 5 minute walk from the downtown, huge parking lot next to it (not the hotel's though), great parking garage. Modern style rooms, great service.

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.

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!

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

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.

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.

We had to stay in the Athens area for a wedding and the hotel was great! The staff was wonderful, and the room was amazing!

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

Thank you for your review. We love you! Our parking fee, while a sticking point, does provide for added security, lights, and cameras to make our staff and guests feel more secure in the bustling heart of downtown Athens. Thank you for letting us take care of you. We look forward to the next opportunity.
