My husband and I live in the Dallas area and decided to do a downtown "stay-cation" for our 5th wedding anniversary. We stayed at the Hotel Indigo and really enjoyed it. They have live music in the lounge on Friday nights, although it was pretty loud for the small area. The hotel is older and has that type of charm - creaky elevator and all! :-) We ended up in a corner suite on the top floor, and it was very nice and roomy. The bed was comfy and it was nice to have a mini fridge and coffee maker in the room. The shower had great water pressure and got hot fast. The bathroom smelled a little weird though (and not a "typical" bathroom smell) - not sure what that was all about.
The only downside was the service during their happy hour at the lounge, and at the valet. The front desk gave terrific service when we checked in, but the bartender was extremely slow (we were one of just two couples in the bar at the time). The staff tended to chat with each other rather than attend to the guests - we even heard them making fun of one of the other staff members! I'm not sure if the valet is a contracted company or if they are employed by the hotel - either way, they only had one guy working during check-out time on Saturday, which we thought was kind of weird. We had to wait quite some time for our car, and there were several people waiting after us.
Overall, we enjoyed this hotel and had a nice time. If you're looking for fancy luxury, you won't really find that here. But it was nice in a sort-of vintage way. The front desk staff was great, and the location was perfect for walking to restaurants and bars in the main street area - very walkable to other districts as well. I also liked that they had a discounted rate if you paid at the time of booking online - that made it a great deal for a central/downtown location.
