Hotel Indigo is an excellent choice if downtown Asheville is your target. A European contemporary decor distinguishes the space as well as the rooms, as do exceptional views of the valley, city and mountains. With free parking and a location next to one of the city's arteries, access is easy. Walking a block or so lead to downtown restaurants, shops, and entertainment. Staff proved attentive, the room comfortable, and service good. Think the spare and sleek style of a Swedish contemporary hotel and you won't be disappointed. Prices vary with season and day of the week making the hotel a great buy for mid-week stays and approaching pricey for weekends and high-season. That said, compared to other downtown locations, it should be near the top of the list.
