This place is nice and has a cool modern style that fits Athens perfectly. To be honest, I was super excited to stay here. However, to pay what they ask and get zero hot water is not worth it. The staff was friendly and tried to be accommodating, but complementary breakfast in exchange for an ice cold shower doesn't quite... More

Athens is a tiny town, so pretty much everywhere you stay is close by. However, it's where you stay that makes a huge difference. Granted this is a university town, it's also known for their art and music scene. The Hotel Indigo really focuses on bringing out this to the public's eye. Which is what I love. Unique hotel stays.... More

Dear Travel_Experta Those are great photos! So glad you enjoyed your time at our hotel. I want to thank you for such a great review. So much focus in this town is on UGA and of course football. But Athens has a great art, food, and music scene; and that's what we try to emphasize when you visit. We hope... More

We enjoyed our stay at the Indigo. The friendly, helpful staff added to the experience. I especially want to call out Abby H. and Jules S. for service above and beyond the call of duty. Thanks guys, I will be staying again and will recommend to others as well.

we have stayed here twice in the last year. Staff was very friendly and rooms are nice. I would say they are unusual in lay out and don't take they key out of holder while your wife is in bathroom, it will cut off lights. Only issue we had was there was no hot water. Evidently they knew and have... More

Nice modern hotel. Staff was friendly and the room was clean and comfortable. We were on an upper floor away for the street and had no problem with noise. However, just be warned that our room did face the firehouse adjacent to the property. While we were there this was not an issue and we were not disturbed. The hotel... More

We went there to take pictures for a photo shoot. The staff was very understanding and sweet. We used almost their whole lobby. We were there for about 2-3 hours. They never bothered us. It was very pleasant and an overall easy experience.

Stayed in a suite for my birthday, loved the location, the room service, and the room. Until a closer look revealed a number of worn pieces of furniture and broken items. No big deal really except they were charging for pristine. The manager contacted me immefiately and asked me to let them prove the remodel will be perfect. Can't ask... More

Stayed here for a week on a business trip and this is hands down the best place I've stayed in Athens. The rooms are spacious and modern and my only complaint would be that the lighting was too dim.
