“Stunning building and room in a great location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2014

Columbus was a surprise, being such a hub of modernist architecture.

Hotel Indigo fits right in with a stylish building with gorgeous rooms.

My room felt more like a NY apartment with curved walls, dividers and a lobby.

The bed and pillows were very comfortable. The bathroom with it's walk-in shower was lovely with toiletries by Aveda and lush towels.

There's a Keurig coffee machine, free WIFI and a clock radio with AUX for iPod.

Onsite parking is free. There is also complimentary bottled water in the stylish lobby.

We love reading comments posted by our guests, thanks for the great review! We are proud to be a part of the Arts Community here in Columbus and drew a lot of inspiration from our stunning art and architecture when we designed the hotel. Come back soon and enjoy the great events over the summer.

In a town renowned for its architecture, the Hotel Indigo offers an ideal in town location and a welcome break from the standard hotel chain decor. Part of the Intercontinental chain, the Hotel Indigo is beautifully decorated in vibrant colors from the small foyer in the guest room to the high quality sheets and bedding. It's the small details that set this hotel apart: the Aveda bath products, the thick towels, the large shower, in room coffee maker, complimentary water bottles in the lobby, and a well-maintained indoor pool and fitness center. The only negative was the fast food quality egg-white florentine breakfast sandwich we ordered from room service ( soft, sandwich bun; meager spinach portion).

We posted a negative (sort of) review of our stay at the Indigo in Athens Ga, but this was much nicer. First, it was easy to find, had a doorway, and lots of free parking out front without going through hoops. Second, it was much brighter than the Athens place, and well lit. Third, they have a house puppy, a bichon or something called Miles, who is very friendly and played with our pooch. And fourth, their pet fee was a reasonable $35. The room was nice and the bed very comfortable.
I would recommend this to anyone staying in the Columbus Indiana area.

This hotel has it all. Warm, bright colors, a dog to greet you in the lobby, a restaurant, comfy spaces, a great, clean and bright workout room. We also used the meeting space and catering services. I had a wonderful visit!

Awesome! Thank you for describing so much of what I personally love about my hotel. It is very bright but even with the modern architectural elements, still warm and friendly. We try to cover all the bases by offering great services and features while our guests are away from home. It sounds like you found them during your visit in our work out room and meeting space. We hope you visit again soon.

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...
