We were there Aug. 9th for a wedding. Contemporary styling was very nice and easy to keep clean for the staff. (Especially the hardwood floors), and it was clean. Front desk staff was very friendly, and the resident dog made everyone smile. Minor complaints: one of the world's slowest elevators, AC was hard to adjust, and shower temp. was also... More

From the minute you walk in the door, you'll see why this is not your typical 3 star hotel. The colors are vivid, the furniture is modern, and the staff are friendly (including the hotel dog). The rooms are also fun and have hardwood floors (none of that sticky carpet!). I'd avoid the restaurant, which was so-so, but the hotel... More

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 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 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...
