Stayed for business meetings in Waltham. Room was nice and clean, very European, but did not have a fridge or microwave. Staff was helpful. Workout facilities were good. AC worked great and the room was quiet. Restaurant was VERY EXPENSIVE, at least $8-10 overpriced on entrées. Bar was full of 40 yr. old guys, reliving their youth, trying to pick... More

We like this hotel for the great South Beach style pool with cabanas and the nice refit of a poor Days Inn. The rooms are nice but tight given this was Days Inn size rooms. Nice baths with walk in glass showers. Good amenities with Keurig coffee, in room safe, good closet and drawers, good desk with lots of plugs... More

We attended a wedding and this was the guest hotel. Very nice, the rooms are updated, clean. The pool area is great. There were a few celebrations while we were there. Bar at restaurant was fun, the only thing is after last call the "bouncer" and some of the staff pushed us out and made gestures that were not called... More

My husband and I stayed here for a weekend trip in Boston to celebrate our first wedding anniversary. We would definitely return! The biggest positives: -Great location. About a five minute walk to Riverside. The train ride isn't short, but much better than dealing with Boston traffic. -The decor. We loved the artwork, hardwood floors, and overall "feel" of our...

If you're traveling with teens, young children, and you think you'll want room service or an easy decent meal in the restaurant, stay at the Marriott nearby. The rooms at Hotel Indigo are comfortable, but no matter what you order, whether from room service or at the restaurant, you can count on its being entirely inedible. Room Service took three... More

I have a number of complaints about this facility, and lest you get the wrong impression, I don't mind staying here, and will likely stay here again. Read all the way down to get to the positives! The design of the room is modern, and I'm sure many like that style - I can see the appeal. It would probably... More

My wife, daughter, and I recently stayed at this hotel for three nights. Our goal was to explore Boston without experiencing the traffic. The location of this hotel is fantastic for this purpose as long as you don't mind the 1/2 hour ride into Boston on the "T". The hotel is adjacent to the terminal of the "T" Green Line... More

My review is as a local patron of the hotel pool rather than as a hotel guest although I have stayed overnight at the hotel and believe that those considering this hotel should understand its policies for pool use. This place has always allowed non-hotel-guests to use the pool for a fee. I think it used to be $25/pp and... More

Rooms were "city" sized which is fine with me. Adjacent to end of D green line. Free parking and wi fi. Nice and quiet. Great, nice staff. Very clean. Was here to visit Boston not hang out in the hotel but did have a gorgeous pool with cabanas.

I had stayed at this hotel before when in the Boston area for business, and really enjoyed it -- location is ideal, a decent fitness room, a place to pick up a quick coffee on your way out the door.
