This is a great place to stay with a very convenient location in the heart of town. It has all the character of an artsy, eco-friendly boutique hotel at the affordable price of larger chain establishments. The hotel is actually part of the InterContinental Hotels Group, so you can earn points staying here but still feel like you're someplace unique.... More

Dear Peeshysmom, Thank you for that glowing review of our hotel! We are so glad you found us inviting, intriguing, and inspiring. I apologize for any misconception given about our eco-friendly business model. We do take care to recycle and separate our municipal solid waste into easier-to-recycle groups. What I believe our Guest Service Agent was trying to say was... More

We stayed at H.I. Athens to attend a wedding in the area. Over all we were very pleased with our stay. All the staff we encountered were friendly and helpful. (Rebecah in the restaurant/bar was particularly friendly and accommodating.) We booked a king suite which was very spacious had lots of light (and also excellent blackout curtains). The bathroom had... More

I stayed at the hotel recently with some buddy's for a golf trip I've traveled a ton for business and stayed at a lot of nice hotels. The Hotel Indigo was as nice as any I've stayed. The staff was very helpful and made great restaurant recommendations. The hotel manager helped us with golf accommodations. The hotel was super clean... More

Big City Feel in a small town If you’re thinking that Athens doesn’t or wouldn’t have a Cosmopolitan Hotel then you’re absolutely wrong. Hotel Indigo Athens exceeded my expectations and as a matter of fact was by far a better experience than the Hotel Indigo in downtown Atlanta. I surprised my husband with an overnight stay celebrating his birthday and... More

This place is nice and has a cool modern style that fits Athens perfectly. To be honest, I was super excited to stay here. However, to pay what they ask and get zero hot water is not worth it. The staff was friendly and tried to be accommodating, but complementary breakfast in exchange for an ice cold shower doesn't quite... More

Athens is a tiny town, so pretty much everywhere you stay is close by. However, it's where you stay that makes a huge difference. Granted this is a university town, it's also known for their art and music scene. The Hotel Indigo really focuses on bringing out this to the public's eye. Which is what I love.

Dear Travel_Experta Those are great photos! So glad you enjoyed your time at our hotel. I want to thank you for such a great review. So much focus in this town is on UGA and of course football. But Athens has a great art, food, and music scene; and that's what we try to emphasize when you visit. We hope... More
