We stayed here for one night when we were in Chicago to see a play, and could not have asked for a lovelier hotel. I especially liked the sea decor, done all in blues and greens, making it very refreshing and relaxing. The front desk staff was extremely friendly and helpful. Our room was smaller than what I thought it might be, but that didn't really matter. The bed was so comfortable, and the bathroom well-stocked with thirsty towels. The hotel is located in a residential neighborhood but is close to all the night life. We were able to walk to a cool little bar on Division St. and enjoy supper. We would stay here again. I thought it unusual, and it offered a great respite in the middle of a busy city.

Room Tip: Be sure to ask for a room with a city view.

Hotel Indigo is located within walking distance to great shopping, dining and cultural activities. The rooms are clean and decorated in seacoast fashion. We loved the hardwood floors and gas fireplace, it was perfect to get warmed by after an afternoon of sight seeing. Lincoln Park and the zoo are within 15 walking minutes, as is shopping on Michigan Ave and great food on Rush. You can walk to Navy Pier and Millenium Park but it is a bit of a hike. No worries though as taxis are everywhere. Even the subway to Wrigley Field is right around the corner. Unlike other hotels in town, the bar at the Indigo is small and really designed to serve guests rather than the public We did not try the restaurant as there were too many great places to eat close by. If you are visiting family in the area they do offer a neighborhood rate. Definitely not a large scale hotel like the Marriot or Sheridan, but a great place to stay.

Very charming and cozy hotel! Love the decor, good value, good location. The only downside is there is no dresser or drawers to put your clothes in. For a week-long stay, I want to unpack my bags and settle in, but there's not one drawer in the whole room. There is a bureau with a shelf, but small, dark and awkward to get to. They seemed to go with function follows form with the decor...cute, but not very functional. I would stay here again though if the price was right!

Greetings,

Thank you for staying with us and providing your feedback, we appreciate our guests comments and are happy that you enjoyed your stay. As you mention, some of our rooms are more on the petite side with limited storage, however we do also offer much larger rooms that can accommodate those that are staying with us longer. Although these double-queen and corner king rooms are the most demanded room types, our staff is always happy to assist in providing them upon request if available. And, if you happen to be a Platinum Priority Club member, these are available as a complimentary upgrade if available at check-in!

Again, thank you for your comments, and we look forward to seeing you again soon!

Regards,

Hotel Indigo Chicago Downtown Gold Coast

My mother and I wanted to take a quick mini vacation in Chicago on a tight budget. We booked this hotel at a GREAT price. Hotel Staff is Super friendly. Hotel is very trendy and hip and well decorated w a beach theme. It has a small restaurant w a great selection and great prices for a hotel. The also have a nice mid size bar right down in the lobby. Our room had a great view, Comfy bed, clean room. I liked that the hotel had plenty of reading material of attractions in the area, if you ask the staff as to where to go and eat, they will be more than happy to direct you and they also have some coupons for restaurants in the area. They also offer Free Wifi which many hotels in Chicago do not and right next to the hotel there is a parking garage where you can pay to leave your car overnight. It is within walking distance to Many places to eat and several pharmacies, supermarket. Super convenient location and there is a train stop about 1-2 blocks from hotel. Will def stay in this hotel again.

Room Tip: If facing the hotel. Get a room on the left (opposite side of elevator) so that you can get a view of the Chicago Skyline.

I visit Chicago often, and rarely find a hotel I really like, but I recently stayed at the Hotel Indigo, and had one of the best hotel experiences. I had two single rooms reserved, and as we went to check in (early mind you) the gentleman, Mr. Hilton, at the front desk upgraded both my rooms and got us in early! As we got up to the room I was shocked at how clean and nicely put together the rooms were, not to mention the beautiful decor and view. The location was great, just a couple blocks north of Magnificent Mile, and tons of bars and restaurants within a block, including the restaurant/bar in the hotel. The outgoing and friendly staff plus a wonderful location makes this hotel a definite do-over.

I stay at many hotels, especially IHG hotels, and I can definitely say this was one of the best! I am hoping to stay when I visit again in May and June.
