Having now stayed twice at the Indigo, two weeks apart, I agree with others that this is a contemporary European-eqsue hotel - smallish but stylish rooms throughout with larger Priority Club "executive" rooms on the 7th floor. The people are very nice. The food is not great -- no surprise but again, doesn't matter much - it's Baton Rouge, but they should at least have decent bar food (no fries available??) because the bar is indeed hopping at times.
The challenge here is that there are surprising things that people who run hospitality businesses should be paying attention to, and not after the fact. The physical plant works fine - but the filters hang out of the air conditioners visibly onto the floor. The desk in my room was cheap veneer on the second stay (no matter at all) -- had end pieces split off and hanging. When reported, timely "repair" occurred and I had a beer on the house. The first time I stayed, though, I had hair in my sink, no bathmat and trash from prior occupant.
Both the management and staff are very attentive and very nice folk.
Hmmm....I really wonder if some part of this Indigo's business is outsourced to a third party and they are the reason for ongoing challenges...just a thought.
I guess the real surprise is that this Indigo, the chain is part of the Intercontinental chain that includes Holiday Inns, seems closer to a Holiday Inn versus the Intercontinental end of the spectrum.
I can't give a Very Good rating here yet, but we shall see.
