I recently stayed at the Hotel Indigo for 4 nights. The hotel is brand new so everything is well kept, clean and nicely decorated. The rooms are great...the bathroom is large with a lot of counter space, the beds are unbelievably comfortable and the views are fantastic. The gym is small but has treadmills, bikes and free weights...not to mention the view from the wall of windows! A separate meditation deck is off the gym...beautiful!
For location, you can't find a better hotel. It's 3 blocks from all the restaurants and bars you could want and just a short cab ride away from attractions like the zoo, Balboa Park, Coronado Island, etc.
The staff are amazing...especially the front door crew! I can't say enough about them, specifically James, Brian and Vince. They always had great suggestions for restaurants and for places to see. Any questions you have, go directly to them!
For great restaurant selections go to both 5th and 6th streets...try the Strip Club which is a really cool 21+ steakhouse where you grill your own steaks or a good breakfast place just a couple of blocks south of the hotel is Broken Yolk...never thought sour cream on omelettes could taste so good! :)More
