Hotel Indigo Atlanta
Travel Blogs from Atlanta
It was time for us to make some time and head for St. Cloud, Florida, to see brother Tom, who is now home from the hospital and waiting for us. We looked at all the route possibilities from Asheville and saw that we could take Interstates 75, 85, or 95, but we needed to be on 75 at the end. We opted for a route that was a combination of 75 and 85 and headed south. We were happy that we drove around Atlanta on ...
We left our hotel in Atlanta and headed to the zoo. We have seen enough zoos but the kids were excited to visit this one because there was a baby rhino, gorilla, orangutan and pandas. It was drizzling when we got there and then started pouring. We were patient and got to see the baby gorilla and orangutan. We made it to Memphis as the sun was setting.
... that Martin Luther King Jr. would have taken his entire life, first as the son of the preacher, and then as the pastor at Ebenezer Baptist. After we left we all felt a bit drained but uplifted from the experience.
I should also mention that we visited the eternal flame and the grave site of Martin Luther King and Coretta Scott King. This site is also along Auburn Avenue. This site is not to be missed if you are anywhere near Atlanta.
... doesn't help that public transport is so poor. Pretty productive at work today, got a lot signed off, and clients are enjoying the accent. Everyone also always seem to mention their own British heritage, and ask whether I like the Royal Family. Went to a mall after work - picked up some stuff for ...
... Peru. I must say thanks for all the advice and suggestions I have had from friends along the way (Kate, Martha, Paul and others) that have shared their Peruvian experiences. Also, notes of thanks to CJ for letting me borrow his camera lens and to Phil for lending me his Nepalese Sherpa hat to keep my ears warm.
Stay tuned for the next update. I aim to keep this as current as possible depending on Internet and computer availability. Adios.

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.
