My recent travels allowed me the pleasure of staying at this wonderful property for four nights. As a hospitality professional, my expectations are usually higher than the average traveler and this place EXCEEDED my expectations. A beautifully designed and appointed hotel with an amazing staff that truly understands southern hospitality, why would anyone traveling to Athens stay anywhere else. Great downtown area with plenty of great restaurants and shopping. Special thanks to Rusty and the food and beverage team for creating great memorable experiences during our stay and to the Gen Mgr Barry for running a simply great hotel.

I decided to surprise my daughter for her birthday. She was staying at the Hotel Indigo--Athens, GA. From the beginning, every one was so helpful. Nora at the Front Desk came with me to my daughter's room to help me decorate it and leave gifts. Rusty from Food and Beverage had gone in already, and set up a nice little St Patricks Day/ Birthday tray with a bottle of wine and vegan birthday cake. ( My younger daughter had called earlier, spoken with Rusty and he did a stellar job of setting up a display) I don't know the Bartender's name, but she was wonderful also. The hotel was clean, and any of the staff I dealt were great. Thank you-- Hotel Indigo, for hiring great people, and giving them the space to shine! Oh yeah-- the bed was delicious!

Thanks so much for recognizing both Nora and Rusty in March when you were in Athens and at Hotel Indigo. We are sure all went well, as many of those in your party shared those thoughts with us. We thank you for your business and hope to see you again soon.

I must say I was very impressed by what I experienced this past weekend at the Indigo hotel in Athens. Our son's fraternity hired a wonderful band that played in a private room at the hotel. I think the area was called "the Ria." We had our own "private" bar outside the dance area and stage the band was on. The room was the perfect size to fit our group. The drinks were fantastic. After the party we opted to stay (pre arranged). We only live 40 minutes away and have never stayed in Athens before except for our college days. This was a splurge since driving was not a problem. But we decided to stay. We had a corner room. I believe it was room 402. It was fantastic! It was spacious and large enough for our daughter to stay with us. We had a king bed and a sofa bed, two large flat screen TV's and a refrigerator. I am a mattress snob and I Loved the mattress! The hotel was a LOT more than what I expected and a bargain for the price. I would recommend this as a place for friends to stay when visiting Athens, Ga.

Was at this hotel in March for a business conference and all I can say is WOW!! From my initial greeting when I arrived till my departure the staff were excellent. My room was very comfortable and CLEAN!!!! The hotel even has an art gallery inside and one outside. Very unique. Would highly recommend this hotel to anyone going to Athens.

Room Tip: All rooms have a good view but maybe ask for a higher floor facing the downtown area.

If you want to truly experience Athens, you MUST stay at this Hotel Indigo!! The service is second to none, they are knowledgable, friendly, engaging and can recommend the best of Athens. The hotel is in one word...AMAZING!! You have to take the time to enjoy the Art in this hotel. I'm still considering reaching out regarding a piece of local artwork I fell in love with at this wonderful hotel bringing art, music and the best of Athens all together under one roof!! I would love to bring my family back to this hotel for a true Indigo experience. If you have time, be sure to stop by Pauley's (sp?) for crepes. You can't go wrong, this excellent recommendation made by the hotel team still has me craving crepes several days later. I can't say enough great things about this hotel, my room was large, the showerhead was amazing, the hotel was clean and the entire Team was incredibly accommodating. As a final note, be sure you enjoy a refreshing drink in their Bar, the raspberry mojito is heavenly and the Bartender's and servers are engaging, insteresting and fun!! Happy Travels!!!

I attended a business meeting at this hotel and found it to be great. My guestroom was very comfortable, great wireless internet speed, room was very clean and the bed was comfortable. The staff was professional and friendly, and seemed to care about the guests of the hotel. My room rate was also very reasonable for such a nice hotel. The food at all breaks and meals was excellent.

I travel almost every week of the year on business, and I would highly recommend this hotel.
