Great hotel and staff, near central location

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on October 28, 2012

I was directed here by a friend who lives no less than 30 seconds down the street, but unfortunately lives in an apartment the size of a shoebox and could not host me. I could not have found a better hotel in the area. The staff have all been excellent, both courteous and helpful. The rooms have all had a major facelift to not only modernize the decor, but also to improve the bathrooms, fixtures and ventilation systems. The result is a very comfortable and worth while stay.

The beds are large, comfortable and give a great night's sleep. The bathrooms have quality toiletries and spacious showers (no bathtubs).

Hotel is located right near lots of the bars of Division Street, yet the hotel is on a quiet block. However my only criticism is that the doors to the hallways are not sound insulated, so some noise will carry through the halls.

Unique Quality: Hotel Indigo is a member of the IHG network of hotels, so if you have "Priority Club" membership, you can continue to accrue and/or spend your points here.

WiFi is free with use of a password. Breakfast is served 6am~11am, which is included depending on your room rate and/or if you qualify with your Priority Club membership.

Parking is not offered by the hotel directly, but the parking garage next door will charge to the room if you want (~$38/day with unlimited in/out access).

Directions: A half block north of Division Street. On Dearborn Parkway, which is between Clark and State. About 3 minute walk from the Red Line stop at Clark/Division.

We had such a positive experience at the Nashville Hotel Indigo that, when my niece decided to get married, it was an easy choice to book into the Chicago version. I was intrigued to see that the musical motif carries forward -- but rather than the "country" theme in Nashville, Chicago's hotel is definitely a "blues" temple. Our room was substantially smaller than the Nashville version -- and the hallways and elevators are quite narrow, too, reflecting an older fashion in hotel construction -- but the beds were the same sublimely comfortable and multiple-pillowed marvels and the miniature bathroom had the same amenities (including high end toiletries and a really great shower). The location was excellent, only blocks from major shopping and close to the Lake in case you wanted some beach time. One of the things I liked best was that it was quiet. By contrast, my son claimed one of the things HE liked best was that it was close to some great bars!

Another plus was that Starbucks had taken up residence as the catering station for breakfast (and obviously coffee, etc. later on), and the area in which one could eat was very comfortably appointed. We enjoyed that convenience. And a final, though quirky, observation: when more than one lady is getting ready for a wedding, it's useful to know that the Ladies' Room in the lobby has outlets so someone can go down there to dry her hair!

Directions: Three blocks from Clark/Division intersection

i really enjoyed my stay at Hotel Indigo.The guy @ the counter gave us a map and showed us where the stops/starts for the L-Train were at nearby.This hotel had a PERFECT location in the city.Within walking distance is a lot of bars,pubs, and restaurants.Eduardo's Natural Pizza is down next door,they had GREAT Italian food.There's also a 24 hour Walgreens right next door,which is nice in case you forget anything.The rooms were clean and quiet. We made the mistake of taking a taxi-cab to the hotel from Midway Airport,which cost about $32!! be SMART,take the L-train if youre staying @ the Indigo,it costs you $2!!!!! takes about a 1/2 hour(same as the cab ride basically)and you come out about a block from the hotel.Only took us about 2 minutes to walk from the hotel to the nearest L-train station.We were within 5 minutes of the hancock Building and Old Chicago WaterTower.This hotel was close to Clark & Division are,which is just full of places to drink or eat.
