So let me put it this way, while the staff is rather helpful, the construction of the hotel is flimsy at best. I was wakened from a dead sleep at 3.30am to a couple "enjoying themselves" for the sixth floor to hear. I have no idea how near or far their room was to mine but for a good 30... More

Indigo is a well kept hotel that is convenient to the Riverside T (1/4 mile). It is not much to look at on the outside, but the interior is nice and the rooms are spacious. There are a couple of issues, however, that made this less than perfect. As noted by other travelers, the doors close loudly, and the pressure... More

What a poorly conceived, poorly designed, poorly built, and poorly furnished hotel! Noisy inside (doors slam on closure, your door rattles when another opens) and outside (route 128 roars if you open a window). The furniture doesn't fit (can hardly squeeze past the desk chair), ventilation is poor, a/c is noisy...there's no provision for recycling paper and a $4 bottle... More

My family and I stayed here for one night during a lacrosse tournament last weekend. We arrived at about 8pm at night, and left by 10am the next day. We did visit 2 other hotels near by- the Marriott and the Crowne Plaza. We were so happy we chose Hotel Indigo and regretted even leaving to visit the other hotels.... More

My husband and I wanted to go to Boston for a few days but didn't want to deal with driving in the city and the nicer hotels were out of our budget. The hotel had free parking (which you don't get in Boston), was right off 90 and one block from the "T (that runs every 5 minutes). The hotel... More

Great hotel and price was right. Very easy to walk to the T-station, only a 20 min train ride to Fenway, about 40 min into Quincy Market area. Room & hotel was very clean and had a nice, quiet stay. Staff was very friendly. Newton itself is a cute town and the Knotty Pine is a GREAT place in town... More

Stayed for the second time in a year. This time from 3/20/15 - 3/22/15. Got an advanced purchase deal with very good rates. The hotel provided a small fridge for my husband insulin at no extra cost. Room & bathroom were very clean. Didn't try the restaurant this time. Walking distance to Riverside MBTA Station.

I stayed here on 4/22 to come see my boyfriend. The hotel was very modern looking, however the lighting throughout the hotel was a bit uninviting. I wanted to thank Saori for being so helpful and informative and Donna for being so accomodating and pleasant. I would definitely recommend this property to anyone looking to do something romantic.

The room was nice, bed was cozy and comfortable. But the restaurant is very costly. I was told that breakfast was part of my booking but turned out it was not (some confusion).
