Stayed here for 4 nights in November 2014 while on business. Hotel rooms were really large, comfortable and clean. Hotel is well located for shopping malls and restaurants which I took advantage of during my stay. Would stay here again given the opportunity.

Lets be honest the number one reason you stay at a hotel is to sleep. It's really the only thing 99% of the customers there have in common. This place was not built with that in mind. I will say the bed was pretty comfy, but past that I might have stayed at a Motel 6 (which I've had better... More

Thank you for relaying your comments regarding your stay. I am sorry that we failed your overall satisfaction and apologize for that.

I worked with the Indigo staff: Jennifer, Agnes, Dan, Jeff, Alex, Bob Laura and Delia who were very helpful to me to run our conference effectively and efficiently.

The hotel is located next to shopping place with various restaurants, less than 5' from I94. Also close to Lake Forest Academy and Lake Forest College. The rooms are spacious (hotel probably converted from Park Place now Hyatt Place), studio type rooms with a small desk, large sofa and bedroom separated by a wall. Shower nice but regulators not very... More

This is a nice hotel, and is in a convenient spot - just 5 minutes west of 94 off of Town Line Road, and near all sorts of shopping and restaurants. The rooms were fine; unique for sure, but clean, bright and spacious (the showers were weird, however, and difficult to use). All staff were very pleasant and helpful. We... More

Stayed one night for business trip. The room is laid out like a studio apartment, with a partial wall separating the bedroom from the other area. Bathroom is separate but adjacent to the sink. The room vibe is neither "warm and romantic" nor strictly business (the latter limited by a somewhat small computer desk and less than ideal computer chair).... More

I have stayed at this hotel many times, and it is a very pleasant stay. Good location next to malls and food. Close to work, and just the right distance from O'hare and Chicago. (recommend getting CNBC channel for business guests).

I have been doing consulting work for a large corporation in Vernon Hills this year and my favorite place to stay is Hotel Indigo. I like the location and the scale of the place -- small enough not to be a overwhelming, but large enough to offer amenities. The rooms are ample and the furnishings are up to date and... More

If you can afford to commute from further away I would. the hotel is convenient for local business parks and seems better than the alternatives in the area, but that's unfortunately not saying much. the recent renovation has freshened up the rooms but the fabric of the building is 80's with noisy air heaters right by the beds and it's...

This is not the worst hotel but the worst Indigo Hotel I ever stayed in. Rumor is the franchise is really upset with how this hotel is managed. It's located in the middle of nowhere and no tourist will come here, it's only business travelers and the area is surrounded with business campus suburbs. Let's start with few good things:... More
