We found Hotel Indigo completely by accident --- we were planning a party at the bowling alley at Gardenwalk and needed a hotel within a safe walking distance for any mildly-to-moderately intoxicated members of our party to get between the party and the hotel without any concern for driving or the like. So we started walking down Katella and within a minute found the beautiful looking Hotel Indigo!
It looked great on the outside so we were concerned it might be too pricey for us to rent enough rooms for our whole party. Almost ready to move on to something that looked more affordable, we went to their website and saw their prices were completely within our target range. Satisfied with the location, the exterior, and the prices, we went for a tour. Alex from the front desk walked us through the entire hotel, showed us the (free!) underground parking lot, the pool, hot tub, cabana, etc. Don't be fooled by the fact that this was previously a Holiday Inn --- the amenities and decor and service are all top notch.
We booked the rooms in person and got a great rate. Luckily we went a few weeks in advance to plan --- on the busy weekend of July, the hotel was clearly booked up when we arrived but we had no trouble finding parking spots for ourselves and our guests.
Although we only stayed one night, everyone swore they enjoyed the stay immensely. We hung out in the pool/lounge area to cool off on the hot night, and relaxed in our rooms at the end of the long day of excitement.
The biggest asset the hotel has is its staff --- everyone we met & worked with was incredibly accommodating even to us as a high-maintenance, large and active group of young adults. We saw other guests there of all types; families, business travelers, couples. All appeared to be enjoying their stay as much as we were. The guy that helped us from start to finish was Alex, but everyone else that worked there seemed to share his attitude of doing anything to find a way to make sure we were enjoying our stay.
Our group is already telling me to plan our next day of fun/adventure and that Hotel Indigo should be our landing spot at the end of it once again. I agree and can't wait to stay again!
