I love the Hotel Indigo. I have always that one of my issues with staying in a hotel is the dark hallways and basic boring rooms. This hotel does away with that and has bright halls with windows and art on the walls and rooms that are each decorated with modern styles and colors. I love it! The wood floors... More

It is a great hotel within walking distance of all downtown businesses and the Millrace park. It offers an experience unique for Midwest. The hotel is usually busy with Cummins guests. If you can find a room, it is the best place to stay in Columbus. The options for food are amazing as well with many independent locally owned restaurants... More

My husband and I just needed to get the heck out of our town and have a relaxing weekend. We booked this hotel and didn't regret it! It's located in a wonderful location. The rooms were fantastic for the two of us. Nice decor. Loved the wood floors versus the hotel carpet at most hotels. The shower was great and... More

The hotel location was great. The room was small, but clean and we loved the hardwood floors. The beds were too firm for my liking. Rooms do not have fridge- something I would definitely look for next time. Bathroom was nice, aveda products and very functional. The customer service was great, & the front desk personnel was extremely friendly &... More

The hotel itself is bright,contemporary, and fits in perfectly with Columbus' architectural vibe. Rooms are a bit small (especially the bathroom) but very nicely decorated with fun touches. First floor includes an indoor swimming pool and hot tub which we had all to ourselves late one afternoon. Location is excellent, within easy walking distance of the Columbus Visitor Center (where...

I stayed here for few days whilst on business and was generally very happy with the hotel.

Be sure to say "hello" to Miles the hotels mascot. The staff is so friendly and helpful. Within walking distance of many restaurants and pubs. Great location. We stayed in Presidential suite which does not cost that much more and is worth the price for so much space. Very modern hotel.

Great hotel, great location, super friendly staff. And there actually is a little dog that roams the lobby. Everything was clean, rooms were unique, and many have a balcony, which is pretty unique for a hotel in this price range. The only minor disappointment is that they did not have complimentary breakfast like most hotels in the Holiday Inn brand.... More
