Stopped by Hotel Indigo for possibly one of the only decent pool parties in the Boston area. It's is all the way out in Newton, about 20 minutes outside the city, My experience was extremely disappointing. Got to the hotel pulled in and was greeted by the valet at 2pm. The valet asked if I'm on the guest list, I... More

Dear MCollins10: I am sorry that you did not receive the service and assistance you expected when arriving on Sunday morning to attend a private party on our pool deck. It appears to be a communication problem because the group you were joining did not identify you as a member. Since the party is by invitation only any guest arriving... More

Overall its a nice place to stay if your main intention is to be in Boston. The pool gets overcrowded during busy times and it takes away from enjoying it. Lots of little kids just spashling water at you while you are trying to sip on your drink and just relax. The train station is right next door to hotel... More

Located adjacent to the Riverside MBTA terminal and just off I-95 makes this hotel a gem. Rooms are a little small and the restaurant and lounge are expensive. The only ice machine is in the basement. No free coffee in AM. However, rates at only 60-70% of usual Boston hotel rates more than make up for these shortcomings.

Allowing your family members to just swim and lounge around the lovely pool or to take the train into Boston. I know that my grandchildren will be super happy around the pool or going to Boston by train. I know that the meals will be scrumptious and I know that the rooms will be comfortable.

Our first impression driving up was that the building must have been a nursing home originally from the way it looks. Once inside that thought is put aside. Lobby and reception were very inviting and check in was fast. The room had a fresh modern decor. Furniture is Ikea-ish,sleek and simple. The floor is a faux wood that complements the... More

My wife and I recently spent 2 nights at Hotel Indigo. This hotel is a decent alternative to expensive hotels closer to Boston and has a T station about 1/4 mile walk away. The train ride takes about an hour to get into Boston (Quincy Market/Faneuil Hall/etc.) and costs $5.30 per person round trip. Rooms are small but adequate and... More

There were not many options for a business trip to the Newton area, but we were pleasantly surprised with this Hotel Indigo. Very well renovated with a great restaurant. The staff was very friendly and helpful with a couple of requests. Easy access to I-90 into Boston.

At the time for our visit to Boston many hotels were sold out or highly priced, so Indigo Boston was a priceworthy alternative in the Boston suburbs. 15-20 min by car from South Central Station, or 40-45 min with tram (from green line end station to Boston Common). We charged tickets with 5$ each, but it cost only $2,75 for... More
