I went here on New Years Eve 2012. I had purchased a party package so my experience is a little different than just someone staying the night. But there are some things that I think apply regardless.
The hotel is right off the main road, but the entrance is set back a little so it doesn't feel so much like an overnight stop for travelers. The rooms are all situated on one floor, and there's ample parking in front and around the side if the hotel.
Upon my arrival, my boyfriend and I were welcomed warmly by a cheerful concierge at the front desk. We checked in quickly and with ease. The decor strives to be more urban chic than one might think. It's a much different feeling walking into a Hotel Indigo as compared with another InterContinental hotel like the Holiday Inn. You can tell that they are a little more upscale with the dark wood floors and vaulted looking ceilings.
The rooms are small, but really not much different from a regular hotel but the bedding and furniture were definitely. The drab floral patterns were replaced by trendy geometrical ones. The lighting if the room really set a good, relaxed mood. The bathroom was completely up-to-date with an energy efficient toilet and a very modern shower, which only included half a glass door. There were some toiletries included (soap and shampoo/conditioner).
The restaurant is designed as a small open floor space with a bar and is situated next to a fireplace. I had ordered some type of fruit & cheese platter and thought the food was delicious. There's also a room downstairs which looks like it could be rented for special events, as there are tables, a bar, a dance floor and couches to lounge on.
All in all, I very much enjoyed being here. It's not very close to where I live but if I were passing through the Riverhead location again, I would strongly recommend staying here.
