I was there on business, and being a business traveler, I get lots of mediocre service. This place was amazing thanks to the staff. Alyssa in the dining room was attentive as well as the bartenders. When I challenged them to make a proper Tom Collins he not only made it right, but came to the table to make sure... More

Everyone who stays with us assumes we are a leisure or resort style hotel when in reality 70% of our guests are business or corporate travelers. With the sleek contemporary design and the amazing lounge & restaurant there simply is nothing else like it in Waco!

If you are looking for the best place to stay in Waco, Texas... this is it. Far and away the pick of the litter. Best rooms, nice bar area, good location, and close to everything. Pamper yourself. Open the pocket book and stay at the Indigo.

Great (clean) Room! Spa Shower! Tasty Breakfast! Fantastic Bar with a bartender with explosive product knowledge! This hotel just makes you feel good! Very close to Baylor and walking distance to the local pubs. Cameron Park and the river walk look nice but I wasn't able to experience a good walk in the morning thanks to Blake (the bartender).

Hotel is lovely, rooms are spacious and comfortable. Staff couldn't be nicer especially Bryce who went out of his way to bring a bucket of ice to our room. On this trip to Waco we plan to visit the Farmers Market and the Magnolia Store nearby.

This was a last minute decision to stay at this hotel. I was looking for places to stay on the fly since it wasn't a weekend. This was a nice hotel set up for travelers with dogs.

We wanted to stay at a hotel close to Baylor University in order to attend an event there, and chose this hotel based on other reviews. This hotel looks and feels brand new.

From the spacious rooms, over sized glass paneled showers to the KUERIG coffee makers and AVEDA spa products you're in for a treat.

Baylor University is amazing and one of the best things about it is its high placement ratio for graduates! If by chance we are fortunate enough to have you and your daughter here for the next four years, please know you'll have an extended family here at the Hotel Indigo!
