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. We also had our sons wedding... More

I have stayed at Hotel Indigo Athens several times in the past, however I booked the entire UGA football season this year and after the first weekend, it's worth the money! The location is the best in Athens as it is walking distance to everything downtown and easy access North Campus! The staff is always so helpful and the trolley... More

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.

The hotel is very trendy- industrial and colorful. The rooms are spacious, there is a small workout room, an outside patio, and a bar. My only wish is that there had been a pool. Otherwise it is a great place to stay and it is close to everything downtown. Do remember there is a parking fee per night but it... More

The hotel is 'green' and they do a great job of it. There are recycle containers in the rooms (but we could not figure out where the teabags or wrappers belonged). Aesthesically, the rooms are light and airy- contemporary beauty. Your room key/card inserts on a wall receptacle to turn power on and off in the room- no way to... More
