I would stay here again. When you travel often for business many tend to get liery of non-chain hotels, especially in college towns. This was well cared for and well thought out. Recycle bins in the rooms. Spacious shower. Very nice outdoor sitting area. Large work area. The entrance is actually from the side street and not the actual address.... More

"BEST PRICE GUARANTEE" is promoted on the Hotel Indigo website. I consider this to be misleading. If I stayed overnight during the week, the average price is $149 per night. However, I stayed overnight on the weekend and the price of my room was $239 (then add on taxes and parking and my total bill was approximately $280). How is... More

I had the occasion to stay at the Hotel Indigo for my niece's recent wedding. The hotel is very unique and offers wonderful amenities. The location is perfect and the staff is simply outstanding! I should also tell you that it's dog friendly and my Allie also had a great time.

Dear sjayne, So glad you and your canine had a nice visit to Athens recently and that you both enjoyed your stay. We have many pet owners who enjoy their stay with us too. We have recently implemented a new pet program with bedding, treats, places our staff recommends that are pet friendly restaurants and more. We hope to see... More

I took my dog to the university of Georgia veterinary school. Beautiful rooms, great customer service. Close to the school. Will be back! The desk clerks were friendly and professional. I had to find a ground floor handicap room when my dog needed to walk as little as possible so i stayed elsewhere. My favorite place to stay in Athens.

A delightful ultra-modern hotel with bright, spanking-clean and artistically laid-out rooms. From the moment you walk in and are greeted by the terrific front desk staff, you can tell what a gem this place is. A special shout-out to Carey and Megayn at the front desk who were so nice and helpful. Makes you want to live in GA! Hands... More

This was my first experience with the Hotel Indigo in Athens, but it definitely won't be my last. My entire stay was truly delightful.

The Hotel is in a great location and we were able to walk everywhere. Decor is very hip. Our room was nicely appointed but good grief, the floors echo every little noise! Unfortunately, our room was next door to some really loud young women who were up talking all hours of the night. It seemed like every time we were... More

I have a yearly conference in Athens and love staying here. This is truly a unique hotel that strives to please it's customers. Front desk clerks are always more than accommodating and welcoming.

My husband and I never stay anywhere else on trips to Athens. From the friendly front desk staff, modern and clean rooms, great toiletry products, and heavenly beds, this is a true home away from home.

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...
