Having stayed in hotels coast to coast and The UK, I was thrilled to discover the beauty, perfection and stellar service of Hotel Indigo, Athens GA. I checked in, promptly, just before 3 and went to my room. The elevators are lightning fast which was a nice surprise. Upon entering the room, I knew I made the right choice in...

First time staying at this hotel and I was very pleased with location and amenities of this property. It was a holiday weekend and the staff went overboard to make sure each of their recommendations were open and if reservations were needed. They had great understanding of the community. This was very helpful. With parking at a premium the location...

This is a beautiful hotel. The staff is very courteous and attentive. The rooms are very nice but a little small. We were on the penthouse floor but the room was smaller than one I have had in the past on a regular floor. Still, very nice. We loved the atmosphere of the hotel. The lobby bar was festive and...

We stayed 2 nights to attend a wedding. Check-in went smoothly and desk staff always eager to help. All staff members were very polite and helpful. Room was large and clean. Bed was comfortable. Wi-if worked well. Some negatives: 1. They make a fruit water each morning in the lobby but apparently don't refill it during the day. 2. No...

I have stayed at the Indigo Athens on business for the last 7 Years.

The only negative I have is the location. You won't feel safe after the sun go down. Although we stay here each time we come to Athens, Ga. We have never had a problem it can get a little uncomfortable at times when walking around the area of the hotel.
