Great hotel. You are gonna drop a lot of money but it is worth it one time. If you're a UGA grad then you can afford it. Like most hotels the lobby is the best. On gameday the lobby is not overly crowded like the Holiday Inn. The run an fm radio station from the lobby too. The rooms are...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 4 January 2017

My great experience with the Indigo began before I even arrived, calling and emailing the hotel with questions (many of the rooms don't have bathtubs, and I wanted a tub--could I do that while also using my IHG points for a room?) which were resolved quickly and cheerfully (sure, book the room and we will upgrade you to a room...

Dear Snoozan, Thank you for your review. It was so great to read about your awesome experience. Our Billiard Suite is very cool. I'm glad you were able to be upgraded to fit your requirements. Our goal is to bring the cool outside neighborhood of Athens indoors, surrounding you with the vibrant art and music scene, even in your suite!...

What a great property! Sleek, modern & clean, this property is exactly what you need when visiting Athens. The staff is incredible, the food is terrific & the rooms are huge. Tall ceilings, big bathrooms & a comfy bed, the guestrooms have everything you need. The location is perfect for a weekend visiting UGA or a weekday business meeting in...

First let me tell you Hotel Indigo has always been our hotel destination for the four years we have had the pleasure of coming to Athens. They consistently go beyond the call of duty but this past Saturday was an exception our family will never forget. Our daughter graduated from the Terry School of Business on Friday March 5th and...

First time staying at this hotel and I was very pleased with location and amenities of this property. It was a holiday weekend and the staff went overboard to make sure each of their recommendations were open and if reservations were needed. They had great understanding of the community. This was very helpful. With parking at a premium the location...

We were on the penthouse floor but the room was smaller than one I have had in the past on a regular floor. Still, very nice. We loved the atmosphere of the hotel. The lobby bar was festive and...
