Well located in a very old neighborhood, yet not out of the way, but north of the loop in the Gold Coast area. (South of Lincoln Park). Very convenient to good places to eat. Food is pricey in the hotel, but the service staff is great (especially Fred!). We had a small room on the 14th floor, but will opt... More

I called in ahead of time asking for an early check-in and they said they'd be able to accommodate me which was great. Upon arrival, I was informed that I had a Queen bed, so I asked if can get 2-beds or a king bed. Apparently that would cost me $40 and $20 per night respectively. I needed it, so... More

My husband and I visited Chicago to celebrate our 5th anniversary and stayed at this hotel. Hotel Indigo is in an excellent location. It's in a nice quiet area but within a 15 minute walk of shops, food, and some great bars! Staff was polite, service was great, and the room was smaller but decorated in soothing bright colors. We...

This was my second time staying at the Indigo and using the Priceline 'Name Your Own Price' feature. The first time I was alone so the SMALL room with a Queen bed was fine. This time, though, I was traveling with a colleague and wanted a room with two beds. I have used Priceline about 75 times all over the... More

My teenage daughter and I wanted to visit the sites and do some shopping in Chicago. We have been wanting to try a Hotel Indigo because of the attractive decor. We had a room with double queen beds. The room was very clean and bright. We were on the 8th floor facing the front of the building which provided a... More

What a terrific location and property. Was upgraded to a larger suite for a 5 night stay. View of Lake Michigan from room. Easy walking distance to Michigan Ave., went on daily walks on the beach every morning when we stayed at the Indigo last summer- it's just a few blocks and easy walk. Bathrooms are small, note this is... More

Greetings, Thank you for staying with us and providing feedback, we appreciate it and are happy you had an enjoyable stay with us. We certainly agree with your comments with respect to our bathrooms. Being built in 1924, we all wish they had the foresight to construct them much larger! We like to think most guests find we make up... More

I booked this hotel through priceline. When I called the hotel to confirm my reservation I requested a room with two beds. They wanted to charge me $50 to do this! I didn't end up having to pay that much, but they did charge me for two beds. I have pricelined hotels with more stars all over the country and... More

We have stayed here twice and loved it. Yes the rooms are small but they are very nice and comfortable. It feels like staying in a guest room at family's house instead of a hotel. We will stay here again.

I really enjoyed my stat at the Hotel Indigo in Chicago. The rooms were clean, the decor was bright and different. The bed was very comfortable minus a big dent in the middle! Only one elevator was working, and the elevator was unusually small, could only fit about 6 ppl, the hallways were small, and so were the rooms, the... More
