Not sure what other reviewers expect when they're checking in (the Four Seasons?) but our needs were not only met but exceeded. What we wanted was a clean, modern hotel with friendly staff in a good location. What we received was a clean, modern hotel room with very friendly staff in a good location with a business center, a welcome drink (champagne or sparkling cider), a large bottle of water, and a good night's sleep in a very comfy bed. We did not eat in the hotel's restaurant in the lobby. We stopped by the local bagel place just a short distance from the Indigo for great NY-style bagels. The only downside was the couple in the room next to ours decided to have a knock-down drag out fight from 11pm-nearly midnight, which consisted of a lot of cussing, swearing, yelling, screaming, and otherwise inappropriate behavior. We tolerated it for longer than we should have (our fault) before calling the front desk. The manager on duty called their room and must have said something to get them to shut up (separate rooms perhaps?). I don't hold the hotel responsible, but as our rooms shared an adjoining door, we could hear their entire fight. The only other issue we had was in the bathroom there was a vent above the counter that blew exceptionally cold air into the bathroom. I imagine this is to keep the mirror from fogging during showers (there is no separate bathroom fan) but it was really cold! I hung a towel over the vent during our stay and it raised the temperature in the bathroom at least 10 degrees. Installing a closeable vent would solve this problem.
This was my husband's second stay at an Indigo and my first. I like the decor, the lack of carpet (no skeevy carpet to clean) and modern design. I look forward to returning!
