Hotel Indigo Baltimore Downtown is located in the heart of the city, our uniquely designed hotel is one of a kind; and we want your experience to be as personalized as possible. Hotel Indigo offers all the amenities you have come to expect in an upscale, independent, boutique hotel. From our complimentary wireless internet to the full service restaurant and service that is second to none. Let us help you make our visit more enjoyable, helping you to get to know our neighborhood, we will recommend some fantastic independent restaurants and help you find your way, like a native. Walking down the cobblestone sidewalks, skirted by rows of elegant brownstones, ornamental wrought-iron gates and manicured greenery, it's impossible not to be enamored by the timelessness and quirkiness of Mt. Vernon. Between the architecture, marble and monuments, you might think you've been transported to turn-of-the-century Europe. But behind the conventional facade, a lively eccentricity radiates from nearby Johns Hopkins, and it's anything but old fashioned. In face, this neighborhood has always been a forward-thinking place, defined early on by a dynamic network of social clubs. We're talking about the city's movers and shakers - the bankers, presidents, preservationists - and they gathered often in the name of culture, cocktails and creativity. You could say it all began with George Peabody's institute, which ignited the cultural movement of the 19th-century Baltimore. Housing over 300,000 volumes, it's easy to see how the "Cathedral of Books" was the catalyst for dozens of cultural clubs that soon shaped the community. Modern scholars stood on the checkerboard marble floor in awe, staring up at the six stories of hardback knowledge wrapped in intricate ironwork. Often times, club members were so inspired by the Peabody's string aesthetic they hired many of the same craftsmen to design their own breathtaking gathering places just steps away from the institute. Here, at the center of Mt. Vernon's social scene, you can see a lady reaching for her delicate perfume bottle, about to play hostess to Baltimore's elite. Mingling downstairs, a gentleman raises his glass, welcoming his distinguished guests. The opulent drawing rooms of these stately homes were a nice fit for the club craze sweeping through Mt. Vernon. Whether you were interested in German lore, literature or laying bricks, there was a club for it. At one point The New York Times declared, "Baltimore has club fever!" From five-course holiday feasts to festive performances by the Vagabond Players theater group, the great windows of the many clubs offered glimpses for passersby, as they still do. One group enjoyed attention way more than the others. Easily the most colorful of the bunch, The Charcoal Club, was founded with an independent streak on the fringe of conservative culture by artists who were fond of drawing from live models, as they did in Paris. This club particularly enjoyed practical jokes, poker nights and feisty battles with the Baltimore Museum of Art. They went so far as to invent an artist, I.L. Glutz, who like today's Banksy, was never seen, but whose paintings were discovered mysteriously several times a year, usually in alleys or attics around town. So, a slightly twisted love of art brought them together, and their individuality set them apart. It's with today's generation of social renegades that the essence and energy of Mt. Vernon's club culture lives on. Even though time seems to stand still in the unmovable bricks and cobblestones, these streets were paved with the intention of leading the way for those who live by their own rules. They are the new class of creatives, undeterred by those monumental shoes to fill and determined to do things their way.

A 6 night stay in Baltimore, in the midst of pandemic,ic, to help family. We have liked Hotels Indigo in several different cities. They tend to be efficient, uncomplicated, unique, and often rehabilitate historic buildings in creative, offbeat, attractive ways. That was so, in Birmingham, in the marvelously redone and historic Central YMCA building. The room was sizable and spacious, the bed firm and comfortable, and the bathroom/shower modern and highly functional. Staff was beyond friendly and helpful, attentive, and made our stay easier. A convenient city parking garage is across the street. Indigo followed all there AHLA guidelines for sanitizing a place during a pandemic, and we felt safe there. Some of the usual things one would rate are not available in this particular strange time, but the large bar area offered easy social distancing, and go-bags of food and snacks were available for purchase. Hotel Indigo does a good job.

I'm in Baltimore for a friend's wedding. I had previously lived here for 4 years during college, so I'm no stranger to the city. First, I appreciate the mask mandate and seeing hotel staff wearing a mask during the pandemic. Check-in was quick and simple. Our first room (we are here for 4 nights) had AC problems that I reported to Ivy, the virtual assistant. A hotel staff member promptly stopped by the room to inspect the unit. He said he wanted to check something on the roof, but we never heard back from him. We tried to push through (our room temperature would not go lower than 74 F) but finally called the front desk to follow-up. The front desk person offered to come up and inspect but after the first person fiddling with the unit with no resolve, Im not sure what she'd do differently. I request a new room in the morning because it was late in the evening at this point and we were tired from traveling. In the morning we stopped by the front desk after working out and the front desk person said she'd call us and let us know our new room number and we could go back downstairs to get the keys. I was irritated by how inefficient this seemed as I was in front of her and she could've given us new keys then. She stated she wanted a staff member to inspect the room and ensure that it was ready first. I was still irritated because shouldn't your service system let you know which rooms are available? If that wasn't the case why wouldn't the staff person inspecting the room drop-off new keys to us rather than us having to go back down stairs? I didn't voice these thoughts instead I went upstairs to shower and pack. My boyfriend retrieved the keys for our 2nd room which was across the hall. This room faced a brick wall and was so dreary compared to the first room. I asked if there were any rooms comparable to our first room with functioning AC. After a short wait, we were offered a 3rd room that was a suite and much better than our first. While this story may sound like a series of things gone wrong, I do want to highlight how the hotel seemed vested in customer service and our comfort. The virtual assistant text was a nice touch. We also received a text to surveying how we enjoyed our first night. For these reasons, I'd highly recommend this hotel and stay here again. Also, I do appreciate the decor especially the hardwood floor in the rooms rather than the usual hotel carpet. This hotel is also in my favorite part of the city.

Have been here a few times. It's the only place I stay in Baltimore! Far away from crowded harbor, but still close enough to visit downtown with ease. Also, Indigo is in Historic area...near Cathedral, Pratt Library, Mount Vernon and it's Museum and the Peabody Institute, etc. Great place to stay!

We really could not rate all the amenities at this Hotel since it is still during the Pandemic and has several restrictions. The Hotel has been remodeled recently and is charming. It has a very nice Dining area, which we hope will be opened on our nezx visit.
