I love this hotel! It's beautiful and modern, and the rooms are clean and spacious. I stayed on the "penthouse" level, and the details make it so special. There was a pitcher of iced tea next to the elevator. The bed in my room was very comfortable and there are huge windows with blackout curtains. There was a comfy chair... More

We planned our event here in the on-site Rialto Club room and it could not have been more perfect. From the planning (thanks to sales manager, Meg Kozinsky), to the execution - the venue, staff, and atmosphere were amazing. We also secured overnight accommodations for 48 people and every single person loved their rooms. Such a neat night out and... More

We stayed there over the weekend for my daughter's wedding. We had many rooms, suites and even had a hospitality suite set up in a room called the art gallery!. Everyone enjoyed the hotel very much. The only slight glitch was the restaurant...it was good with a nice selection, but totally understaffed. There is no room service. The servers could... More

Stylish and comfortable hotel. The staff was very nice, the room is large and comfy, a nice sized bathroom, a useful desk area and a full lineup of tv channels (a rarity). The breakfast in the lobby is good and reasonably priced. They do charge for parking. I would definitely stay here again and highly recommend.

I stayed for two nights at Hotel Indigo Athens, GA. I was more than satisfied with my experience. From check-in to check-out, the hotel offers a beautifully decorated room, large shower and big soft towels, a great TV with lots of channels, and a nice little business center. The best parts were the people who worked there. They were very... More

From service to perfectly appointed rooms, this is how you do hotel. Hotel Indigo is a great concept in the hotel industry and this hotel in Athens is a perfect execution of a great concept. The Athens Hotel Indigo is the only place I'll stay in town.

Stayed three nights for a conference. Room was very nice, clean, and comfortable. Staff was very nice and helpful. Short walk to downtown area. The bar was nice and the outside space was great. Will stay again when in Athens.
