“Good location, neat room and very good service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2013

Walking distance from the ball park. Front desk staff were very helpful. Good restaurant in the hotel - weird name but good food. If you want to eat out, plenty of choice within walking distance. Supposed to be pet-friendly but still very clean alround. Environmentally friendly place -- interesting history.

What I liked most
- Location: in the trendy heart of SD, Gaslamp Quarter
- Huge room, huge bathroom and super clean. Spaciuos walk-in shower
- Nice lobby

What I didn't like
- Parking: only valet service, extremely expensive (39 USD/day). There are public parking facilities in the area (2 blocks from the hotel) at 15 USD/day
- Breakfast: expensive and not good. Continental breakfast is a croissant defrosted with a microwave and a small cup of fruit. All for 10 USD! Avoid the bar of the hotel, there are many bars in the area for a good breakfast

the beds were very comfortable, and the staff was courteous, and very friendly. The whole hotel was all very clean, updated. The bathrooms were clean, an the shower was great! The rooms were spacious, and the hotel was next to the Petco field. There were many places to eat within walking distance, and the front desk staff was very helpful. Next time I come to the area, I would definitely stay here.

Myself and three friends recently stayed at the Hotel Indigo while in town for a baseball game over a weekend in August. On top of one of the best locations we could have hoped for, the hotel was absolutely beautiful and the staff was fantastic. Do yourselves a favor and stay here!

The hotel is walking distance from the Petro Park Stadium and the Gaslamp District. We stayed here are 2 night and we loved it very much. The room was great and pleasant with modern furnishing and comfy beds. The service from the staff was also great and they were very welcoming and polite. The parking was expensive but there are various other parking lots which offer reasonable parking prices surrounding the hotel. Otherwise I would recommend this hotel for the quality of service and ideal location. I would stay here again if I were to return to San Diego.

Room Tip: Room with two double beds was quite spacious.

Our party of three recently stayed at the Hotel Indigo for two nights while visiting San Diego as tourists. The hotel is nicely placed on the edge of the gas lamp quarter. It's an easy two block stroll to Petco Field and we took in a Padres baseball game one evening. All of the hundreds of restaurants and bars on 4th and 5 avenue are just three blocks away and we found scores of nice places to have breakfast and for dinner. it's a 10 minute walk to the cruise ship pier where the ferry to Coronado and the harbor cruise ships depart. Balboa Park with the museums and the zoo is only a short drive away as well.

Our room was very comfy and decorated in a hip, contemporary style. The room wasnt huge but was spacious enough for three with two queen beds. Good mattress and great pillows ensured a good nights sleep. Nicely appointed bathroom with high quality toiletries and a great shower were appreciated. In room coffee maker, flat screen tv, and free wi fi complete the picture. Valet parking was included in our package and they valet park cars for Padres games for $15. The negatives: I would avoid the hotel restaurant as our one breakfast experience there was not good: cold food and very slow service. The roof top outdoor bar was closed for private functions both nights we were in the hotel which was annoying. What's the use of having such a facility if the paying guests can't use it!

Room Tip: Not much street noise but get a room higher up.

Thank you for stopping by and writing such a detailed and wonderful review! It is amazing to hear you enjoyed your time in San Diego and were able to take advantage of what the location brings! I apologize for the inconvenience you experienced at Table 509 and the fact that you were not able to experience our Level 9 Terrace due to a private event. I thank you though for the feedback because we learn best from our guests in what we can improve on.

Again thank you for taking the time to write a review and we hope to see you again in the future.

We stayed at hotel indigo for 4 nights and it was wonderful. The location is awesome- easy walking distance to gaslamp and (cheap) mass transportation (with no car we did everything we wanted to without cabs)! Rooms were great (just with they had a refridgerator). At the rooftop bar, Chris and Pat were great, both really friendly and nice to talk to while hanging out; excellent service! Ellen at the front desk was awesome as well! Overall perfect place to stay, right near all night life and good restaurants and really great hotel!
