The hotel is advertised as pets friendly, However, they first said that they will only charge $40 for our pets when we checked in, but later they changed mind and called us to add extra $20. We were disappointed that they called us several times to disturb us for the pets stay. We don't think that it's good idea to... More

I travel on business twice a month and found this gem worth revisiting. Staff is friendly and courteous while the rooms are clean and efficient. If you don't mind small rooms it's a great place to stay. Did I mention it's the perfect location?

We have been staying at Hotel indigo for the past five years. It's a great hotel with small but efficient, clean and modern rooms. Great location with reasonable price. Reminds me a lot of Europe. Staff is fantastic and service is five star. We love staying there when in town.

We absolutely loved the location of this hotel. The hotel itself is very chic and I enjoyed the art exhibit from the art museum around the hotel. We had the best seats around for the Old Spanish Days parade, as we sat in the hotel's outdoor couches to watch! I would highly recommend this hotel for a couple, but for... More

Nice hotel - would likely stay here again. The rooms are small, so having more than one person per room could be a challenge, but a nice place to sleep if you are traveling alone and don't require much space. It's close to the water and the funk zone.

Hotel and people are great... The 4am and 7 am train that comes thru with horns blaring, are not. Room wasn't cleaned or towels replaced, and VERY LOUD train. Beware. Very expensive all things considered... I would rather pay extra and stay a couple blocks away from the railroad tracks in the future. However, if you can sleep thru a... More

Came down for a birthday weekend getaway. Hotel is nicely put together and has a boutique feel. Valet parking is very convenient. Hotel staff is accommodating. Room is small but efficient. Everything you could need for two people. Bed was comfy. Would highly recommend and would stay again.

Overall our stay at Hotel Indigo was comfortable. I loved the art around the hotel - apparently this hotel is a satellite for the Museum of Modern Art. The room was a bit small, but it was cozy and tidy. I felt it was a tad bit overpriced for the size of the room, however the location is fantastic. About... More

The Indigo is a delight. Though some might complain about the small rooms, each is luxurious and the space is better spent on the interesting communal spaces anyway. In addition, the location is great—walking distance from both the wharf and downtown.

Hotel is in a great location a few blocks from the beach. Nice and clean and modern. Great amenities. The front desk was super helpful and courteous. This reminds me of a European hotel in terms of feel and efficient use of space. Was big enough for the two of us and our large suitcase, with room to spare. The... More
