We recently stayed at the Indigo in Athens Georgia attending our son's graduation. The location is excellent, right in downtown Athens, walking distance to everything. The room and bathroom were good sized if not somewhat sparsely furnished. The desk was basically a plank of wood and the dresser was kind of funky with open shelves and baskets. The lobby has...

I stayed at hotel INDIGO Athens during a business trip. My room was spacious, modern, clean and comfortable. When I returned home I realized that my iPad didn't check-out of the room when I did. The staff at INDIGO located it and shipped it to my home free of charge. Very nice touch. I will definitely stay with them next...

Nice hotel in a great town. Glad we stayed here, Eco-friendly and relatively new. That said, you pay for it, it's not cheap. It's location and very friendly service though, make the stay at the Hotel Indigo very worthwhile. Would recommend.

Think dorm room with a comfortable bed. Overpriced hotel, food. The desk clerk on check in was great. The next morning on check out, not so much. I'll be visiting Athens again... need to find a different hotel.

Fantastic surprise when stopping in Athens for a few nights. Proximity to tons of great restaurants and pubs, this property was fantastic. Staff was friendly and knowledgeable about the area. The room was amazing. Balcony was a nice touch.

This is a great place to stay with a very convenient location in the heart of town. It has all the character of an artsy, eco-friendly boutique hotel at the affordable price of larger chain establishments. The hotel is actually part of the InterContinental Hotels Group, so you can earn points staying here but still feel like you're someplace unique....
