This hotel is located on a quiet residential street a very short distance away from the CTA red line, and is also within an easy walk to the shops of Michigan Avenue. Several busy bars and restaurants are also close by, which makes for an all-round great location to be when visiting Chicago. The hotel itself is a bit dated.... More

We were fearful coming to Chicago for 3 days when the news says they have the more shootings & gunshot deaths than New York & Los Angeles combined. We found the Indigo to be in an upscale residential area that was safe for walking. The room was very pleasant with pleasing colors and everything up to date. The prices were... More

If you need to stay on the Gold Coast, the Hotel Indigo is a (sometimes) affordable option. I've stayed here a couple of times and it's consistently beat up and a little dirty. On this last visit, I "enjoyed" a really dirty bathroom wall, mold in the shower, a laminate floor that's peeling up and a stained comforter.

There are 3 of us in Chicago for a wedding. We wanted to be on the north side of the loop and we chose the Hotel Indigo on north Dearborn. The hotel is in a quiet area and there is a parking garage next door. Parking was $48 per day via a valet -with no discount for hotel guests. We... More

Loved this boutique hotel in a great area. Rooms are nice, comfortable with great views. This is an old hotel that has been redone so the configuration will be a bit odd but we loved the boutique vibe. Service was great and be sure to have a drink in the bar. GREAT FEMALE BARTENDER...she makes a mean drink

The people were friendly. The beds were super soft, and the bathroom reminded me of being at the beach shower house. The food was a bit pricey but it was healthy foods :) Parking was usually full but we took a taxi to the hotel. If you want to go to places, use a taxi.

Great Hotel with an even better location! The room was spacious, though we did have the corner room. We had a king bed, with room for a roll-away bed and another air mattress plus a little table to sit at and a lounge chair. There were four adults that slept in this room and we were not cramped. We were... More

Firstly this hotel was in a great location. Very easy walk to Michigan Avenue and the many restaurants in the local area. Also close to a Metro station, which made getting further afield easier. Most of the staff were very welcoming and efficient, and the room was very quiet, roomy and really comfortable. Had a good nights sleep and the... More

This was our first stay here, I wasn't wowed but I wasn't disappointed. Our single bed room was small, but since we were not spending too much time there it was fine. The room seemed clean, not spotless but I felt comfortable enough, there were a few minor things that could use repair. We opted to just have the room... More

Staying in Gold Coast

Neighborhood Profile
Gold Coast
Located just north of The Loop, Gold Coast is one of Chicago’s most affluent and popular neighborhoods. The original Playboy, Hugh Hefner, once had a mansion here. In addition to prestigious hotels, historic mansions and luxury high-rise apartments, you’ll also find upscale specialty boutiques and Michelin-starred restaurants. Walk along Oak Street for your shopping fix and dance through the night along Rush Street. The Newberry Library is also a great stop to check out noteworthy exhibits and rare book collections.
