Just a one night stay as we toured Baylor. Rooms were great, loved the hard wood floors, no yucky carpet. Staff was helpful in directions and local restaurants. The location can not be beat Will look forward to going back and discovering other areas of Waco. The bar and restaurant looked like a fun place for drinks and meals.

Thank you for spending the night with us here at our New Hotel Indigo! We are hearing more and more from our guests on ho much they prefer the rich hardwood floors in their rooms as opposed to other properties where the carpets just don't seem clean and fresh.
We hope you have the opportunity to visit with our exceptional bar staff, Stephanie and Andrew as they are sure to please and entertain!
We look forward to visiting with you on your next visit to Baylor University!

Kindest regards,

My new favorite place to stay when visiting Baylor! Very close to campus, and it's beautiful, convenient, comfortable, and spacious. I highly recommend it. It has a nice restaurant with excellent food, a beautiful pool and exercise facility, and the lobby has a bright, airy feel to it. Rooms are freshly decorated, bathrooms are lovely, clean and well stocked.

Room Tip: I requested a view room--don't expect to see a beautiful river or anything, but a nice skyline a...

This was a surprise gem stumbled upon in Trip Advisor. Not familiar with Waco and was looking for a place to stay overnight for a quick trip close to Baylor University. It is very close. 4 minute drive if that. The hotel is less than a year old. Greeted at the lobby by name. It the atmosphere is modern. Bar looks great and later that evening, several locals arrived to hang out. I had a glass of wine early in evening. Nice recommendation by waiter. Friends had dinner. Said food was "okay". I later ordered room service. Although a bit slow, my tacos were very good. My son had the short ribs which were a very large portion but they were somewhat bland. Overall, pleasantly surprised by the food quality. The rooms are modern, large in size with a nice big shower. Beds were comfortable. I would have given this 5 stars but for this: the room temperature and unit. The temperature fluctuated and became uncomfortably warm during the night. Even though set low, I had to get up and lower the temp some more. Which brings me to the unit. LOUD. When it kicked on it was loud and when it kicked on again around 5 AM it woke me up. It was that loud. I thought garbage trucks were outside. Overall, I was delighted with the hotel and would stay here again and will also try others in this chain.

Stayed there for first time during Baylor Sing weekend. Great spot with a big city feel. Great lobby and rooms were very nice. Great overall weekend and super location to the Baylor campus. Very comfortable beds and great walk in shower in room. Would highly recommend to anyone.

Yes, the design of the Hotel will give everyone a Big City feel yet with the Southern Hospitality and service you like and appreciate!
The Ownership built this property from the ground up keeping it centrally located between the Waco entertainment district, Baylor University, The new Baylor Bear's stadium set to open in 2014 and many local sights and attractions.
Thank you for sharing your kind words with everyone.

Great addition to the hotels close to Baylor. Nicely decorated and lots of extra touches. The beds were very comfortable. The internet connection worked fine. Check in/out was very quick. The bath had oversized shower and shower head. The hot tub was nice. The pool is not heated but has a very nice setup with half of it covered. Nice area for summer time visitors. The exercise room had good equipment and was adequate space. Great deal compared to other area hotels.

Room Tip: The center rooms are slightly larger. We stayed in 240 which seemed to be one of the larger rooms.

This hotel is beautiful! Very clean,modern, with a god bar and restaurant. The staff was always courteous and helpful. Our daughter is a student at Baylor, so the location is perfect! Our king size bed was wonderful! The sheets were crisp and the down pillows fantastic! The bath towels were nice and thick and the Aveda amenities a nice touch. I love the colors that were used in our room and throughout the hotel. If there is one criticism it would be not having a cozier rug underfoot when you get out of bed. It was 29 degrees outside during our stay and it just felt a bit "cold" stepping onto hardwood. To sum it up, this hotel would be our first choice for any future trips to Waco!

This Hotel may not seem to be located in the ideal neighborhood but what a great find. You can walk to most entertainment and eateries. The hotel is ultra modern and decorated very upscale. The entire staff is very customer oriented. I would recommend this to all age groups. It has fitness center and pool and hot tub. A nice outdoor area for relaxing.
