“Perfect for Athens stay”
Reviewed 6 October 2013

I really enjoyed this hotel. The decor is minimalist but warm, bed was very comfortable, great shower, loved the wood floors and concrete ceiling!! It had everything I needed. It is not luxury necessarily, but it is very clean, very comfortable, very inviting. Front desk was great. Location perfect: I left my car in the lot for the length of my visit in the downtown area. I will definitely definitely stay here on my next visit.

The Indigo in Athens is an example of an environment friendly hotel, Swedish Style.
The look is a bit modern retro with a touch of rough materials that add to the vibe. I guess it's a popular hangout for the moms and dads of the students since the rate is not realy student oriented.
Perfect and clean rooms, perfect bed and powershower, we liked!
A few blocks away from the bars and dinners.

Recently I stayed over night at the Hotel Indigo in Athens, Georgia and thoroughly enjoyed my stay. The hotel was well situated, close to the UGA campus and conference center. Because of the IHG loyalty program parking and internet access were free and the wi fi speed was great; there's also a nice bar with a limited but creative "bistro" menu and an enclosed patio. The interior decor is more like the interior of contemporary European hotels than typical IHG properties. I liked that there was a recycling container in my room and the fact that instead of a bathtub, which I don't use in hotels, there was a very large shower.

This won't be my last stay at a Hotel Indigo.

Room Tip: I really enjoyed the penthouse floor, it had extremely high ceilings, floor to ceiling windows and t...

I will NEVER stay here again! We go to Athens 3-4 times/year with a group to enjoy live music and a night on the town. This was my first and LAST time for Hotel Indigo. Our reservations were botched and over half of our group found themselves without a room at the last minute. Those of us who had rooms had them under wrong names and mine even had a wrong credit card. The room was clean and nice, but considering our long, well planned weekend was almost totally ruined because of incompetent people booking our reservations (and yes we were all given confirmation numbers when we booked...). It was very pricey, so at the very least I expected a room after I booked and received a conformation number!!!

Room Tip: Another hotel...

For those who are interested in being Eco Friendly, this is the place to stay. The room is furnished with your own recycling containers that go well with the decor. The staff were very friendly and anxious to help with anything I needed. Room was very comfortable and roomy.

My boyfriend and I stayed here to watch the opening UGA game and had an amazing time. The hotel was very beautiful and clean. The room was gorgeous! All of the hotel staff were so friendly and professional. The food was great and we loved The Bistro. I highly recommend staying there and will definitely be back!!!!!

I stayed here a week and loved it - great room, great shower, great breakfast (no nasty buffet served here!) and great staff. I loved little touches such as Jittery Joe's (local) coffee in each room and great Aveda toiletries. I liked the art everywhere and the high ceilings - a really pleasant place to stay. Nice comfy couch in the room too and free wifi! My only negative would be that the bar closed too early (10pm) on most nights. Would definitely stay again - a real breath of fresh air!
