Indigo is my first choice in Columbus. Spacious room with hardwood floor and nice beddings. The cafe serves nice breakfast and decent lunch/dinner. Convenient to walk to town for restaurant. It is booked up quickly so best to reserve well in advance.

On a jaunt to tour the (Spendid) Miller House, the Indigo's fresh, bright, mid-century style was a perfect option...and the rooms are spacious, bright, well-appointed. Our small suite had two sinks, a shower and tub, very large bathroom and private toilet, with plenty of space for a group of friends or family getting ready all at one time. Loved meeting... More

Great hotel in heart of a small interesting Midwest town. Perfect location, short walk to restaurants, shops, visitor center (where architectural tour originates), kid-type entertainment areas.

I've stayed at this property a half dozen or so times in the past 5 or 6 years, and have always loved it. But, it seems to have slipped a bit service-wise judging by my stay last night.

I admit I grade hotels based on cost. A basic $100 hotel deserves expectations for a $100 hotel. A $200 hotel has a different set of expectations. This would be a great $100 hotel, at $200 plus (including tax) this is average. The staff is very good,the rooms large and clean. They are however noisy. The street noise comes is... More

We are so sorry our hotel doesn't appeal to your sense of style. We realize design is a very subjective sense and hard to quantify.

Made an impromptu stop in Columbus to see the architecture and decided to stay at the Indigo Hotel while travelling from Cincinnati to Indianapolis. Super nice people and very cool and funky hotel. Lovely room with great bed and bathroom. Hardwood floors. Very contemporary. The service was great. Also at a good rate. Highly recommend and will come back again.

If you're looking for a quality hotel in Columbus that's conveniently located downtown and in walking distance of many architectural sites, this is the place. The hotel and rooms are distinctly modern and clean. Check in was smooth. Breakfast was decent.
