We love, love Kimpton Hotels. On the advice of some friends we decided to upgrade from our usual Hilton Garden Inn in Athens to the Hotel Indigo. Pictures were promising - cool rooms, hip lobby and outdoor space, eco focus. Sadly, it was not to be.... Hotel Indigo is good enough, better than the Hilton. But...something is just not quite...

A few girlfriends and I planned a trip back to Athens for a weekend of yummy food, thrift shopping, and live music. We stayed at Hotel Indigo and it was a blast! We never had to call a taxi since the hotel is conveniently located downtown. The rooms have a rad design and the artwork they used incorporated local band's... More

Hotel was very nice. They tried really hard to make this look first class, but it was inadequate in many respects. Lighting in the room and bathroom was dim. When I came back to my room at the end of my first day, the dirty wine glass, mugs, and used glasses have not been removed, and glasses were not replaced... More

Dear Nora L, I apologize that we did not meet your expectations while in Athens at our hotel. It is my understanding that your cc has been credited with the parking fee charges since you did not bring a car. As for lighting and small gym, I apologize that these did not meet your expectations either. We always ask any... More

Excellent hotel experience; from the room to the meeting space everything was great. I will stay here every time I return to Athens. Easy walk to anywhere in downtown. The staff quickly remembers you by name and is willing to help with any need you may have.

Enjoyed the weekend at hotel indigo. 2 nites with a Friday house party. Band and drinks included, not a bargain rate but good base to explore Athens and see a great game. Hotel has a funky design and spirit to it including a large club downstairs with limited hours.

Hotel Indigo's staff is very friendly and very accommodating to all your needs. They also allow for pets under 75 lbs. On game day, they have a trolley that will take and pick you up from the game, plus take you to downtown to restaurants, which is a great feature. Out stay was excellent.

It's fun to alway come back to Athen, GA. Hotel Indigo is one of my favor places to stay. You can bring your dog up to 75 lbs. Staff is friendly. Trolley service provided by hotel to game and lots of good restaurants downtown. My son was married here a year ago. Breakfast is very good at a reasonable price.
