Very nice facility, friendly staff, excellent food

5 out of 5
by from Boston, Ma.
Posted Feb 21, 2017
Pros: Staff was very accommadating, eager to assist
Cons: it was a very pleasant stay.
Location: Restaurants, art galleries, inner harbor area within 1 mile walk.
We were in town for a couple of days. Easy walk from the train, as well as to Inner Harbor area. The hotel looks recently renovated. Lobby is lively, with a quiet sitting room with a large fireplace off to the side. Excellent place to watch the comings and goings. The hotel restaurant has great food, excellent craft cocktails. We have a chef in the family and she was equally impressed. The hotel is centrally located with UBaltimore to the west, and the Inner Harbor to the east. Many local watering holes, and restaurants in the area to satisfy any taste. The staff was fantastic. It was all hands on deck all weekend, with managers helping out at the bar, and serving tables. Even the bellman was helping out.

In the heart of Baltimore

Posted Jan 24, 2017
Pros: Please see above
Cons: If a sign could be erected for the carpark across the road that says Hotel Indigo patrons park here (for those with car) so entrance not missed.
Overall our experience at this hotel was excellent. The staff were friendly, the location was perfect, the room was clean and nicely decorated. I wanted to stay longer I enjoyed the experience so much. Will definitely book this hotel again.

Perfect for a downtown holiday stay

4 out of 5
by
Posted Dec 26, 2016
Pros: It was perfectly located, the price was right and staff were friendly.
Cons: It would be ideal if there were a discount for the Franklin Street Garage. Street parking is tricky due to hours and limits.
Location: Shops and food in Mt. Vernon, Walter's Art Gallery (free!!), Peabody, shops along Charles Street, downtown Enoch Pratt Free Library, Inner Harbor.
We enjoyed our stay in the historical YMCA building that is now the lovely Hotel Indigo. It was easy to get to a myriad of restaurants 3 blocks away on Charles St, walk down to the Inner Harbor, catch the bus to head elsewhere in the city and enjoy the sights and lights of Mt. Vernon and the Washington Monument.

Posted Dec 12, 2016
Pros: Location, staff and facility. Friendly in house restaurant and lounge.
Cons: Parking is a bit inconvenient, with a public lot across the street. They should offer valet parking (if they do we did not see it)
Location: Can walk (or take the free transit bus) to places. Hotel is close to Walters are museum and one of our favorite restaurants - The Helmand.
We frequently travel to Baltimore on personal business. We like to stay downtown and walk (or take the free transit bus) to attractions and restaurants. Hotel is close to Walters are museum and one of our favorite restaurants - the Helmand.

Everything about our stay at the Indigo was incredible. The staff was very friendly and helpful, our room was spacious and we loved the no carpet thing!

Rooms on the Reception Floor aka Maids Quarters

2 out of 5
by
Posted Oct 27, 2016
Pros: Rooms are nice and staff generally is as well; Oops I dont have anything else to say. Also would I recommend the hotel, maybe straight yes or no is not applicable, which is why I usually do not take surveys as they are written by individuals with limited ability to conceive of all the complexities of a situation.
Cons: This stay, my room was on the first floor behind reception, the business center and the hotel restaurant kitchen and apparently above or next to the loading dock for the facility. On my first night there, I was awoken by loud banging, the sound of heavy items being dropped on the floor and the room shaking, hence why I believe I was near the loading dock. Also, to walk by the restrooms for the restaurant to get to my room and the staff changing room made me feel like I was staying in the servants quarters. The fact that a vacum cleaner and cleaning suppy cart were in the hallway most of my stay furthered the impression. The hotel should not rent out these rooms to guests ever, there are about 5.
