“Great Hotel, pet friendly, stay here”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2010

Overall service and stay was excellent. Stayed 1 night with wife and dog while traveling thru GA. Getting too is a little off path, but minutes to UGA campus. Plenty of places to shop and eat at with-in walking distance. Hotel is very clean and modern. Good free parking. Rooms have wood flooring, large bathrooms with walk-in showers (no tub), good size room. Bar/restaurant in lobby is above average. Menu has variety but is limited. Reasonable prices. There is a outdoor area that allows dogs right off of lobby also. Grassy area in parking lot is small, but safe to walk dog. Highly recommend if traveling with dog.

My fiancé and I stayed at Indigo this past Saturday and the only bad thing is that we had to leave. The complimentary valet was incredibly fast, accommodating, and courteous. When we walked into the lobby it was open, clean and very well adorned. We got in line behind two other couples to check-in but didn't wait longer than 30 seconds before another staff member came in from the concierge desk to assist us. We stayed in room PH 12 which was nothing shy of amazing: huge ceiling, comfortable bed and furniture, nice TV, very clean, floor to ceiling windows, great shower, GREAT SHOWER, a bathroom that you would expect from a room that cost $200 more per night, and my fiancé seemed to think that the shampoo/soaps were top line.

All in all I spend a lot of time coming in and out of Athens but after finding Indigo I know where I will be staying from here on out!

We stayed here the first week of August for a wedding in Athens. I thought this was a great hotel. The rooms were set up in a way that made you feel like you had a lot of space. The over sized shower was a nice touch, no bathtub but for us this was not a problem. I also enjoyed the aveda bath products. The fitness center was nice, good equipment and free weights. We were selling our home and needed to fax something to the realtor, the front desk was very nice and accomodating. There is a nice outside patio area great for having a cocktail. The hotel was very clean and the staff very accomodating. I would recommend this hotel to anyone staying in the area.

We really enjoyed our stay at this hotel. It is centrally located and within walking distance of the convention center (the "Classic Center"), downtown shops and restaurants and the college. My only complaint was that it did not have a pool.

I recently stayed for two days with my chocolate lab. It was perfect, very welcoming and helpful staff, walking distance to everything yet a few safe blocks from the congestion and chaos of Clayton St. Quiet, lovely, clean. The lobby and outside patio were perfect for me and Beau. The staff went out of their way to help me get to where I needed to be on time. I will definitely stay there again.

Absolutely loved this hotel. After a stressful mishap with our rental car in Atlanta, we anticipated being 2 hours late for our check in. I called the hotel to let them know, and when we arrived after 10 pm, the clerk remembered me and saw how stressed out and tired we were and gave us a $15 breakfast credit. When we inquired about street parking (we didn't want to pay for parking), he said he would comp us parking also. All with such warm hospitality - it was great to feel like something went right with the day!

The rooms were gorgeous - I felt like I was in a spa and wished I had more time to spend in the room. Very relaxing atmosphere, and the rooms were huge! Only minor issue is that it took about 5 min for the water in the shower to heat up, but the presence of bath robes made up for it (I am a sucker for bathrobes in hotels!) Bed was very comfy.

Breakfast continued the great experience. This was a sit down table-service breakfast with many healthful and tasty selections. The food was very fresh and made to order. I got the frittata which didn't have any added salt (loved it after having eaten oversalted food for the several days I was in Atlanta prior). My business companion got oatmeal and it came beautifully presented with fruit and nuts. Coffee was strong and freshly brewed. With our $15 credit we only spent $2 (plus tip) - such a great deal for the breakfast.

I cannot rave about this hotel enough. It was an especially excellent value given that they have a government per diem rate (I work for govt). I wish there were one in every city I visit from now on.
