My wife and I like to spend the weekend in Athens sometimes to kick back, unwind, and enjoy some of the Athens cuisine and culture. Hotel Indigo is a great base for our excursions. The hotel is in the heart of Athens and is walking distance to anything downtown. I have stayed at Indigo a few times and have been... More

We love taking care of you when you are away from home. our location is far enough away from the big crowds of downtown but close enough for you to experience the full Athens Downtown culture.

Very nice hotel, and staff were outstanding. It is a modern hotel that seems to be following LEED standards. Rooms were large, beds were comfortable, and bathroom very modern with glass door on shower and nice tile work. (water pressure could have been better, but no lack of hot water)

My daughter and I stayed in one of the suites as a special occasion mother daughter treat. From check in, to dinner, to the room, we felt pampered and right at home. Staying here is less like staying in a hotel and more like being a guest of your swankiest friend! And don't forget the delicious in room Jittery Joes... More

From the location to the room, this hotel was spectacular. The layout was so cool, with shag carpets and furniture that looked like it was vintage. Indigo is one of the first LEED certified hotels in the country so they are very eco friendly. Their bar promotes drinking locally with tasty craft beers and cocktails. They have local bands like...

We were in town for a wedding. The Hilton in Athens was the designated hotel. As we booked late, there were no rooms for us. Thanks to reviews on Tripadvisor and the suggestions of friends, we went with the Indigo. It was the first time at an Indigo property for me, but it won't be the last time. Everything about... More

Lovely wooden floors, great beds, excellent service, small breakfast, room has a lovely unique boutique feel and near downtown Athens. All good and the hotel feels different to a standard hotel of the same price range. Recommended.

Dear JerrryCornelius, Thank you for your review and clever epithet. I'm gonna take the "hip" part of your title and say that it does uniquely suit our property. We are definitely unlike any hotel you've seen before and that's because Athens is such a cool little town that we are proud to be a feature in the neighborhood. Thank you... More

Dear Laneyster24, Thank you for your review. We're so glad you enjoyed your stay at our hotel. Our design and look purposefully tries to force the hotel experience out of the cookie-cutter mold of our competitors. Drab coloring, dirty carpets, the same stuff day in and day out gets tedious and tiring. I am sorry our design does not speak... More
