I often recommend Hotel Indigo in Athens to parents who are going to visit their kids going to school in Athens. It is clean, friendly, modern and convenient to downtown. We were there during Christmas Break a few years ago and loved our stay. The room had hardwood floors and comfy bedding and throw rugs. There were four of us... More

I spent a week at Indigo and despite a few bumps, had a great experience I want to share. I booked at Indigo because they had a reasonable (but not cheap) rate and allowed pets, which enabled me to skip pet boarding fees at the vet (plus be with my baby kitties!). When I checked in the standard king room... More

This a a fresh modern hotel in the heart of Athens. The rooms were spacious, comfortable and clean. We loved the large shower! The staff were professional and very helpful. I have nothing negative to say about this establishment.

This is a nice hotel that is clean and spacious. The urban design means you are staying in a concrete room with hardwood floors. I thought the hotel would be noisy, but I only heard the echos of my own activity. I came for a one night business stay and the hotel was probably too cool for that purpose. I... More

Loved the decor, front desk staff great, rooms beautiful, beds great, shower roomy. The problem is that you can't sleep past 8am. Every room has 2 trash pails made of metal so every morning the cleaning staff are clanky these buckets. I also would suggest separating the employees so they can't keep up a constant dialog as they clean. Some... More

We stayed here while passing through Athens in September. This is a LEED certified hotel (forget what level certification) with many interesting design features. Rooms and baths are large. Beautiful and thoughtful design in the rooms. Many of the furnishings were sourced locally and the detail to source and design really sets this hotel head and shoulders above the rest.... More

This hotel has a great modern decor, comfortable beds, good service, clean & spacious rooms, aveda toiletries, and a convenient restaurant, all within good proximity to UGA. Light/late sleepers may want to bring their earplugs, as the doors to each of the rooms are a bit heavy and create a loud noise when closing that can be heard throughout. Otherwise,... More
