I am generally a fan of Indigo Hotels. I stayed here last November, where things went amiss, starting with being given a key to someone else's room and walking in on that person. Since I was given some compensation on that trip, I thought I'd give them another try since I like Indigo. Stayed there again last week, and there were a long string of mis-steps. Nothing catastrophic, just lots of missed details. I was there for 4 nights, and there was some new glitch every day. Not what I expect at $152 per night in Durham, NC. It strikes me as having some overall management problem - or poor staff training. They mean well, but it's just a little off. After writing a detailed email outlining all of the things that went wrong on my second stay, I got an email back from the hotel manager apologizing but then going into a litany of how many awards they win for service and how great they are. Nothing bugs me more than this kind of clueless response to a complaint - my experience did not come close to what he was telling me. It's time to be quiet and listen. Next time I'm in RTP, I'll be trying one of the many other hotels within 2 miles of the Indigo - very competitive market, and especially at $152/night, they need to try harder and oil their machine.
