We have stayed in several other Hotel Indigo properties. As usual, the staff is very nice and efficient. The color scheme is upbeat turquoise, blue and green- a bit odd for downtown Chicago as it seemed like a tropical vibe, but cheery. This hotel is in a great location in the Gold Coast neighborhood with restaurants, drugstores, coffee and the...

I chose this hotel based on location. Great location. I liked the decor, it felt like a Carribean Vibe. The front desk was very helpful and knowledgeable. They held our luggage for us before we checked in, since we got there very early, and after we checked out. The breakfast was included in our room price, and it was great....

I used to live in Chicago and now travel there frequently for work. It was a pleasant surprise to find this hotel through IHG for my stay. Normally similar hotels in the area cost much much more. The Pros: -Very very good location. Walking distance from a lot of food, convenience stores and red line train stops (and main bus...

Book through the hotel website for a stay plus parking deal, otherwise you pay $50 to park in the garage next door. Wow. That said, the hotel was lovely - same slight disrepair you will find in any old city building but nothing that impeded our comfort - and the staff was seriously wonderful to us. Desk staff, people helping...

I love the Indigo brand and have stayed in many around the country. This wasn't their finest example. While checking in, we were unloading the car in the pouring rain while the bellhop stood inside and watched us struggle with the doors. When we went to the bar, all local beer on tap was out so we were left with...

Had a girls weekend trip here during the spring. Thankfully weather was great so we were able to enjoy all the activities within walking distance very easily. The room was hip and fun. Morning coffee delivered to your door and breakfast was yummy!

Great find in the heart of the Gold Coast. Just 2 blocks from the Clark/Division "L" stop. Hotel Indigo is a nice combination of boutique and chain hotel.

Neighborhood Profile
