Our organization has used the Rialto Club for the last 2 years for a catered dinner for about 40. The gathering area was spacious enough for the passed hor d' oeuvres, and the dining area easily accomodated us. We used a lectern without a mike and could easily hear. This space is in the basement of Hotel Indigo, which at...

This hotel hits the perfect combination of comfortable, relaxing rooms and an energetic, up-beat, (but not rowdy) bar area. I have stayed here multiple times over the last few years and I am happily return each time. (I look forward to my next visit!)

This definitely is the place to stay in Athens. Comfortable rooms, excellent staff, eclectic decor -- all within walking distance of myriad restaurants and bars. Not to mention the free and fast WiFi. If you want to visit UGA and don't stay here.....

I am tired of standardized chain hotels that feel and look the same -boring- everywhere. At last there is something different in Athens: the Indigo. It's Eco friendly, spacious, and downtown. Service is excellent The bar has great cocktails

I really like this hotel. I've been staying in this hotel since they opened every time I have to come to work to Athens. I know a lot of people come here because of the "ECO ideas", personally... I come here because it is a very nice and well design hotel. The rooms are very comfortable and I don't want...

Dear Chaufa, Thank you for your review! We are so glad you found peace in our bedrooms. That's exactly what we were going for.

Love the Hotel Indigo. The staff went above and beyond to send back my phone charger I left in the room. I've stayed here many times over the past four years, and will continue to stay here each visit to Athens. I will come back to the Hotel Indigo everytime I visit UGA!

Hotel was basically clean...but that ended the good things. Staff outright lied to us about coming upstairs to correct an internet problem. They never showed up...I had to call back downstairs after about 20 minutes. Their internet only worked for about 15 minutes from check in to check out. They blamed it on their third party provider -- typical "it's...

After trying most of the hotels in Athens, I finally food the perfect spot for a business or even leasure trip. From the bar area to the Jittery Joe's coffee shop inside the hotel and walking distance to restaurants, only positive comments to make. BTW, the rooms are big and airy in a very contemporary style.
