I found someone else's hair on my bed and the bedside table was full of dust. No shower cap neither. Yuck! I trusted IHG but this stay make me never want to stay with Indigo no more. For over 200 bucks a night, I deserve better.

Unfortunately, this is the second time this hotel has under performed for me. As a frequent business traveler and an IHG Platinum member, I can confidently say this hotel does not live up to Hotel Indigo expectations. This should be a Holiday Inn Express or at best a Holiday Inn. This is an older property trying to pass for something... More

I'd stayed at an Indigo in Boston area before, it was hip, trendy, but also comfortable. This Indigo falls well short. Suburban location, easy to find. Appears to have formerly been a Hampton or Quality Inn. Interior decor mostly modern, but there are still traditional touches from original construction. Over the look is a bit contrived. But that is minor.... More

A resort hotel - spacious, in a country like place. not very new but quite nice. Food (room service) is great, though a bit expensive. Service is fantastic , when I try to call taxi to my company office in the rain they kindly offer me a free pick up by hotel van.

We stayed here for one night when the AC in our new house died. The hotel is pet friendly and we are grateful for that. It was also clean, fairly inexpensive, and the staff was very nice.
