Hotel Indigo Atlanta
Travel Blogs from Atlanta
The Atlanta airport is very big! We had to ride a subway to get to our concourse. We walked around in the food court and i got a burrito. We still have one more hour until our flight takes off so we're just sitting around waiting. I am a little nervous about this long flight, but it will be ...
... it's the contrasts that stick with me. On the one Han you have the small and harsh cells. Open to the elements and probably v v cold in the winter months. The isolation cells that would have been depressingly dark and kept prisoners locked up in for 23 hrs a day. But then, in contrast, there are the stunning views towards SF and the Golden Gate Bridge. Which the prisoners would have seen each and every day - reminding them of their lost liberty. More to ...
OK, so as they say, "The best laid plans..." and all that. (Yesterday we decided we would visit Stone Mountain then go downtown Atlanta to visit a couple of things, this morning we changed our minds again and thought we would visit Stone Mountain and then Jonesboro for a couple of GWTW places.) We arrived at Stone Mountain this morning about 10:30 and started looking around at all the things there are to do. Well, we knew we would not visit the amusement park or ...
... Of the 49 cars given, only 46 remain (at least at the complilation of the exhibit). The Great Locomotive Chase was about Union soldiers stealing a train engine and trying to get to Chattanoga with it. It was made into a movie by Disney and starring Fess Parker (that tells you how old the movie is).
Our second stop was the Kennesaw Mountain National Battlefield. This battle was fought because the Northern Aggressors wanted into Atlanta and ...
I am about to embark on a long journey toward the West, but beyond the land of Lewis and Clark expedition. It's been awhile since I had such a long flight, but I am ready. Atlanta's Hartfield -Jackson Airport has become a familiar sight. I am onboard a plane for a 9.5 hour flight - DIRECT (thank ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Indigo Atlanta
Other reviews are right on target... unique decor, visually pleasing colors and murals on the walls, soothing music from a CD called "With Indigo in Mind" (really) when you first enter the room... definitely not your run of the mill chain hotel. I was just in town for one day, and found this hotel a pleasant diversion from the ordinary... and at a decent rate.
I stayed at the Hotel Indigo for one night and was very happy with my choice. The hotel looks great, the decor is very trendy without being obnoxious. The location is great and there were plenty of bars and restaurants within walking distance. The hotel was very clean and the room smelled great when I walked in - no stale hotel-room odor. Overall, I think the hotel room was the highlight of the weekend and I give recommendation to anyone who would like to stay at a nice, clean hotel with an excellent downtown location.
Staff is friendly and helpful. Great Midtown location, close enough to Marta, with restaurants nearby, and safe feeling for solo female traveler. Fun and eye catching decor both in lobby and rooms. Lobby has Starbucks coffee bar and full cocktail/wine bar but skip the food except maybe a snack, it is all microwaved. Free! internet access on lobby computer with free printing or copying. But, be forewarned, rooms are small and bathrooms are teeny tiny, hence the "European" descriptor used in their ads. Queen bedded room was fine for one person but two would be constantly tripping or climbing over one another, at least in my room. The decor is extremely attractive, assuming you like bold and colorful, and the bed was one of the best I've ever slept on. The shower was large and well equiped with hand held shower head and wooden bench; a drainage problem was promptly fixed. BUT, the rest is so tightly squished together that my chin risked hitting the basin while sitting down on the commode. Even 3 and 2 star European hotels I've stayed in had bigger bathrooms than this one and I'm sure men would hate it even more than I did. Intercontinental better work on this design in future locations...the concept is great but the details need work.
The decor at this hotel was very refreshing...it seemed more appropriate for a beach destination, but was still a nice change to the typical city hotel decor. The lobby and guestrooms looked like they would be featured on the Home & Garden Network...dark blue and lime green hues and cheery white furniture. A relaxing CD was playing in our room when we checked in, creating a spa-like atmosphere. My friend said that the fitness center was well-equipped and a pleasant experience.
My boyfriend and I recently stayed at Hotel Indigo for our anniversary after being told of it's quaint decor and friendly staff. The decor was very unique and inviting giving you the feeling of being in the Hamptons. The staff was friendly enough. Not overly nice but not rude either.
My family and friends recently stayed at the Hotel Indigo to be near a relative who was receiving medical treatment at a nearby hospital. They honored an excellent hospital rate. The hotel is clean, stylish and comfortable with very good service. The location is excellent with many good eating and entertainment options nearby. The rooms are small and the bathrooms even smaller. Tall individuals will find sitting on the toilet a very cramped activity with the sink right in your face. No bathtub but a very comfortable shower. It would be difficult for more than two people to feel comfortable in these rooms for more than a few days but at a rate under 150.00 it becomes a very good value. The beds are very comfortable and the furnishings were quality. Free high speed internet in rooms and nice snack bar in lobby. If you read the reviews on this website there will be no surprises.
I'll agree with pretty much everything said before. Really great furnishings (comfy bed w/ big comforter) and arguably the best location in Atlanta. Friendly desk clerk. Downside, as mentioned, is that the rooms are tiny -- not a problem for a night or two but you may want to think about it before you go for an extended stay. Also had a really loud heater that woke me up a couple times when it clicked on.
Overall, though, great value in Midtown. Better than your average budget hotel.
Our weekend at the Hotel Indigo was a lovey experience. The building itself has been beautifully renovated in a relaxing contemporary nature motif, very different from next-door-neighbor Georgian's stuffy grand hotel feel. The floors, in both lobby area and guest rooms, are hardwood and lend an open "loft" feel to the hotel.
Will definitely stay there again!
We have just returned from a very memorable stay at Hotel Indigo. Fabulous! The room was beautiful and tastefully decorated. The bathroom is tiny, but extremely clean. The size of the bathroom won't keep me away. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Not the snobs you find at other Atlanta hotels. They made us feel at home! The manager recommended a great restaurant down the street and he was so right! Great food! Great location. The hotel is located across the street from the Fox Theater. We will definitely return!
Completely renovated and so brand new that our bedsheets felt like they were right from the mill and had never been washed yet. The room was very nicely decorated and the beds were comfortable. Food and beverage is well thought out, with the stuff we wanted such as Starbucks and a few good dishes, but without an elaborate high-overhead operation. The staff was very friendly but unsophisticated; they seemed to have no hospitality industry experience. The new Indigo chain will not compete with the W chain with that staffing strategy.
