“A gem of a hotel especially if you have pets”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2014

This hotel is a total fit for Columbus Ind. The town is known for architecture and has some great architectural buildings and the Hotel Indigo carries on that tradition with a modern art masterpiece of a Hotel for a reasonable price. You know when you walk in and see this modern clean, colorful and bright lobby that you are in for a great stay. To top it off, if you own a Pet this Hotel is a must stay.. Normally seated at the front desk is the wonderful Dog Ambassador Miles, who is ready to say hi to you and your pet. The hotel is very central to downtown and is easy to find.

What characterizes the Indigo hotel in Columbus - for me - is service excellence. The hotel is nice and clean - rooms are spacious and quite comfy without being luxurious. Food at the hotel is OK - an expansion of the menu would be welcome, but quality is OK.
The service - however - is top notch.Every person in the hotel staff works to really make you feel at home- and at the end of the day - that trumps everything else.

Room Tip: Some people claim the hotel is noisy - personally I do not agree so. At the front it faces the post...

We were driving back from Hilton Head and stayed at the Hotel Indigo. We were between the snowstorm and the frigid weather, so we ended up staying 3 nights. It feels so comfortable at this hotel. The rooms and common places are very clean and new. The staff is very accommodating. They have made our experience enjoyable. I have been impressed with everyone from the front desk staff, the servers, the housekeepers, maintenance and of course, Miles, the hotel dog. You won't be disappointed if you stay at this hotel.

Your response is warm enough to melt the snow outside! We are so happy we could shelter you from the frigid temperatures recently. I know the delay you faced probably wasn't what you planned for your trip and our team was thankful to hear your comments. All of us at the Hotel Indigo Columbus look forward to your return if or when you visit the area again.

The hotel is very pleasant and staff very friendly. Very central to down town so walking is best for getting to local amenities. Overall it was a good stay but be aware that walls are paper thin, heating system was noisy and breakfast can be slow if busy.....having said all that I liked it!

I am happy to hear you liked us overall even if there were a drawbacks. While we love being busy, it can be challenging to serve breakfast to so many at the same time. Our staff will take encouragement from your review as we strive to continuously improve the quality of our services. Thank you for sharing your feedback, we look forward to your return.

This hotel has a very achitectural feel to it but the hotel staff is super friendly including Miles, the hotels four legged ambassador. The pool and fitness facility were top notch, the food and drink in the dining area were delicious and the service was great. My room was spotlessly clean and super comfy.

Room Tip: Rooms away from the post office are quieter.

The Hotel Indigo has a great staff, interesting decor and an upbeat style at a reasonable price. However the walls are paper thin--not what you expect from the look and feel of the place!
We were kept awake all night by a wedding group that wanted to party to the wee hours after their reception. The staff did their best to quiet them and finally moved them to the only other available room...only to keep those guests awake as well. Book a room away from the elevator and ice machines and as far away from any groups that might be staying as you can!

Room Tip: run the fan to keep out noise of your neighbors

Thank you for your review. I am so sorry the guests nearby disturbed you and appreciate that you brought it to our attention. Moving them to another room is always a last resort but hopefully you were able to sleep soundly afterwards. I am like you, and always ask for a room away from vending areas or elevators because I know I seem to hear every noise in the hallway when I'm away from home. We look forward to your return and offering a quiet location for you!

I highly recommend Hotel Indigo in Downtown Columbus. The amenities are great (gym, pool, restaurant, parking, etc.) and the entire place is impeccably decorated from head to toe. AND, they have an adorable little dog who lives in the lobby.
