I visit often for work and conferences. I am never disappointed. The rooms are always clean and the staff is exceptionally cordial. A bar restaurant and room service are available and if you are lucky, free beer and wine during happy hour on most Wednesday nights. I think they also do happy hour on other week nights. I actually prefer... More

The staff was professional from check in to check out. My husband and I found the room to be very comfortable, albeit a little tight on space (though not a problem!). We dined at the hotel restaurant on Sunday morning and was pleased with the food and service. The most winsome quality about Hotel Indigo was that upon my husband... More

We stayed here one night for a business trip. The rooms were nice, the gym is better than most hotel gyms, the business rooms are nice w/ the conference table and write-on dry erase wall, etc. The staff was very friendly and helpful and the rooms were quiet. I also left my charger there and they shipped it to me... More

Visit: July 17, 2015 The staff, the young lady at the desk, was very professional and helpful. They were also very knowledgable about the property. This was a surprise. The check in was smooth and effortless. The rooms were clean, comfortable and spacious. I was surprised and pleased to see that the facility has a LEED rating. (And that they... More

I booked this hotel based upon Trip Advisor recommendations months ago in preparation for Freshman move in at UGA. The hotel is stylish and very well-appointed. Our room was very spacious with a modern flair. The bed was excellent and the pillows were good. The bathroom was very large and nicely designed. The room did not have a fridge. The... More

Dear Robert C, Thank you for your review. I apologize for the unfortunate delays in your breakfast order and with your room keys during the power outage and the following day. Bad weather tends to put a damper on most experiences. I have shared your concerns with our F&B Director so that things like this won't occur again. Ryan Crenshaw... More

I recently stayed at this hotel as part of a group of travelers. The property and rooms are attractive but not necessarily well-planned for convenience. I found the desk staff to be pleasant, but not knowledgeable about the surrounding area. As an example, I was sent miles for a drug store errand into a questionable neighborhood, only to discover later... More

Dear 714MartinR, Thank you for your review. Sorry to hear about the confusion during your stay. I apologize for the directions. Our staff usually directs guests to the pharmacy that is on the main road and a little further, so they won't get lost finding other smaller ones. Our Penthouse rooms are located on a keycard exclusive floor for guest... More

I stayed at this hotel for several days while my furkid was being taken care of at the UGA vet hospital. I love this hotel. Great rooms, ridiculously comfortable beds - they even have room service! Visited the hotel bar - drinks were good and bartender was friendly. Most of all the front desk staff was the best. Asked about... More

Dear BRRStravels, I'll admit that I had to reread the term furkid as I had not come across that one but it's true! we love pets! your pets! We certainly know the bond between humans and the animals that care for them. To be honest, sometimes I greet the puppies first, then the owners. I'm so glad you and your... More

The hotel is quite basic, but it seemed to have everything I needed. The Internet was not good, and it's definitely best to go out to eat and drink, but for a bed and roof it's good. It's local to a lot of great bars and restaurants so the location is great.
