“Great place, always busy”
Reviewed 30 June 2014

It is a great hotel within walking distance of all downtown businesses and the Millrace park. It offers an experience unique for Midwest. The hotel is usually busy with Cummins guests. If you can find a room, it is the best place to stay in Columbus.
The options for food are amazing as well with many independent locally owned restaurants and bars. I would highly recommend this place

Room Tip: Ask for a room looking towards Mill race park

My husband and I just needed to get the heck out of our town and have a relaxing weekend. We booked this hotel and didn't regret it! It's located in a wonderful location. The rooms were fantastic for the two of us. Nice decor. Loved the wood floors versus the hotel carpet at most hotels. The shower was great and the towel swan was a sweet touch. We slept well. This was the relaxing night we were looking for. We also loved that there was a Keurig in the room. Also, room service is free (we didn't use it, but nice to know). I highly recommend this hotel and we would definitely stay here again.

The Hotel Indigo is very nice hotel if you are staying in Columbus, IN! My wife and I stayed at this hotel because we attended a wedding and the Hotel Indigo was chosen as the host hotel. The Hotel Indigo is a welcome break from other chain hotels in that the hotel is very nicely decorated and the use of color throughout the hotel sets this hotel apart from other properties that I have stayed at. The rooms are spacious and well appointed, use of hard wood floors was an added benefit and really made the room seem larger. The beds and pillows were super comfy and very conducive to getting a good night sleep. The bathrooms were also very spacious and clean, having a Krieg coffee maker in the room was the touch that topped off the experience for me where the room was concerned. No more dealing with those small coffee makers that spit hot water at you and use less than quality coffee.

When it came to the bar and restaurant, John that bartender is awesome! John engaged us both nights that we sat at his bar! John knows the area and he balances bartending with banter very well! The absolute highlight of our stay was meeting and hanging out with Miles the house dog. The thought of having a dog in a hotel usually doesn’t vibe well with me, Miles changed my mind. Miles was so well behaved and lovable that I fell in love with him on the spot!
If you travel plans call for you to be in Columbus, IN; be sure to make the Hotel Indigo your destination for a good night’s sleep, stay, and place to relax! The breakfast service and coffee service was great as well.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a balcony! The views are amazing and the breeze will hypnotize you!

The hotel location was great. The room was small, but clean and we loved the hardwood floors. The beds were too firm for my liking. Rooms do not have fridge- something I would definitely look for next time. Bathroom was nice, aveda products and very functional. The customer service was great, & the front desk personnel was extremely friendly & helpful.

The only minor disappointment is that they did not have complimentary breakfast like most hotels in the Holiday Inn brand. But that's a minor thing.

The hotel itself is bright,contemporary, and fits in perfectly with Columbus' architectural vibe. Rooms are a bit small (especially the bathroom) but very nicely decorated with fun touches. First floor includes an indoor swimming pool and hot tub which we had all to ourselves late one afternoon. Location is excellent, within easy walking distance of the Columbus Visitor Center (where the architectural tours start) and all downtown restaurants. Lots of parking. We stayed on the top floor which likely mitigated noise issues; I see a few other reviewers have mentioned noise problems. (We didn't have any problems.) Also we requested a room facing the park rather than the road for a quieter space. The one downside, as others have noted, is lack of free breakfast. That would have been much appreciated. I don't really understand why this hotel offers a full menu for dinner and lunch; we saw NO ONE eating there (except breakfast) during our stay.

Room Tip: Ask to be on the top floor facing the park.

I stayed here for few days whilst on business and was generally very happy with the hotel. The staff are really friendly and helpful and the hotel is well decorated and maintained with some characterful features. It's well situated in downtown, handy for Cummins offices, the park and local shops, bars & restaurants.

One thing I struggled with was the noise levels in my room. I was on the 2nd floor where it's open to reception and it was really noisy from anybody talking in reception and also the road on the other side (especially in a town where removing your muffler seems to be a required upgrade to every vehicle). Oh and the aircon in the room sounded like a pneumatic drill!

I would also like to have seen an in-room safe and some curtains that actually fitted and blocked out the light...and a laundry service at the weekend...and some faster lifts.

Room Tip: Avoid rooms overlooking reception...215 for example...very noisy

Thank you so much for sharing your experience and the tip about the room. I am so sorry the reception noise carried through the open lobby to your room upstairs. I know our team would be happy to accommodate any future requests for a quiet location the next time you visit. If you are willing, please contact me and I'll see that we update your guest profile to insure we offer the best room suited to your needs next time! We appreciate the feedback and hope it helps others when they visit us too.

Be sure to say "hello" to Miles the hotels mascot. The staff is so friendly and helpful. Within walking distance of many restaurants and pubs. Great location.

We stayed in Presidential suite which does not cost that much more and is worth the price for so much space. Very modern hotel.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Presidential suite. It is not that more expensive and offers lots of room.
