Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 152 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Comforable bed The bed was nice and soft. Room had wood floors and a great view. Would recommend for anyone staying in the downtown area. September 2, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Comfortable bed and great service A refreshing surprise, good food and great staff. For me the mattress could be more firm but still very comfortable. August 27, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Fun hotel Rooms are not massive but well designed and clean. Our AC went out but repair failed. When I notified staff, we were quickly given a new room and, without asking, part of rate was comped. August 27, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Stay Great hotel in downtown BR area. Enjoyed our stay. August 26, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Nice stay in BR Had to stay a night in downtown Baton Rouge and chose Indigo - Good valet service (pricey), but great service - rooms clean and quiet - though the showers did leak considerably all over the floor despite the mat. Service at the restaurant was very good, though not very busy. Food was standard. Would return in the future. August 25, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Comfortable bed, great location We chose this hotel for its location and previous reviews. We were very happy with the hotel as a whole and its location. Just a couple of slightly negative comments: the bathroom had a combination light and fan and the fan was pretty noisy - would have preferred a separate fan switch. Also, the air conditioning unit was on the window wall while the thermostat was on the opposite inner wall. It seemed the room would be freezing while the air was on and then get too hot before it would come on again. Overall, however, a very nice and comfortable hotel with friendly staff. August 20, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great service and clean, comfortable rooms This was my first stay at the Hotel Indigo. I was presently pleased to find the room clean, well furnished rooms and extremely good working air condition units in place. The front desk staff were very friendly and helpful and answered all of my questions. I was especially pleased when I drove up and saw the convenient valet parking right in front of the front lobby. The valet staff were also friendly and helpful. My only disappointment during my trip was that after a busy day and a long drive I was actually looking forward to a long soak in a hot bathtub. When I discovered that my room only had a standup shower I was more than a little disappointed. August 19, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very friendly staff, beautiful hotel We give the Hotel Indigo in Baton Rouge high marks in all respects, other than food. August 14, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Chic hotel downtown We enjoyed our stay at Hotel Indigo. It's a beautiful property in downtown BR. The only thing we were missing was a pool. But then again, in August, it was almost too hot to go outside anyway. Really neat bar area! August 14, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great BTR Hotel Hotel staff are fanastic and friendly. Hotel is well maintained and in a great location for work and pleasure in BTR. August 11, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 I'm Coming Home! To the Hotel Indigo Baton Rouge Staff, you simply amaze me! Being a native Louisiana Belle, I was eager and excited to come home for my 25th high school reunion. When the Social Committee reserved a block of rooms in your hotel, I had the option to be at a hotel I did not know to be with my fellow classmates OR pick a competitor that I was comfortable with...my gut & heart told me to try HOTEL INDIGO. I'm glad I did! I rushed in from a long day of flights, car rental to 5 o'clock traffic and was graciously greeted by a charming Front Desk Manager. The entrance was clean, the bar was sexy and the elevator was cool. When I walked into my room, I had a corner view that overlooked the Mississippi River. My bed was plush and my bathroom was comfortable. I threw myself together for the evening's event and I can thank the comfort of my weekend home for setting the atmosphere to a lovely weekend! The biggest compliment I have is to Security Rep, Emmitt. He didn't even blink to my request when I needed an escort to the 6th floor of the parking garage after 2am festivities! What a gentleman and so polite! I walked outside Saturday and Sunday mornings for exercise enjoying the riverfront views. What a great location you have! Walking distance to everything, coffee shops, restaurants, bars, history/USS Kidd, exhibits, gambling, entertainment, etc. Hotel Indigo is a safe, clean, sexy hotel. I will return! Many thanks to all who made this a wonderful 25th Reunion for returning Baton Rouge High graduates of 1989!! Truly, Shari Nashville, TN August 6, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very nice place Had a great stay again. I love staying here. Just a nice place to stay when on the road. August 5, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Inhospitable staff It's disappointing that a nicely decorated and pretty comfortable hotel in a great location can be ruined by the staff. If you can look past the unwelcoming nature of the staff, do stay here. My stay here was quite poor. A freely roaming dog in the main lobby attacked my leashed pet and took some time for the staff to restrain. Additionally, walls are thin at this hotel and beds are okay. August 4, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Birthday Night out The hotel was very nice. The only issue that I had was that my reservation was for a King bed, but the bed felt much more like a Queen. July 31, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Best Bed EVER!! I recently stayed at hotel Indigo in BR. The beds there are so comfortable. The staff is very helpful and attentive. The bar tenders are great! The location of the hotel is very convenient. July 31, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Perfect Place in the place to be in Baton Rouge Used to stay on College but decided to chase some points and went for downtown and the Indigo. Great location and a great staff. Could walk to everything I needed and actually enjoyed the best happy hour pricing in town with $1.50 beers. great start to the night. Cannot imagine how you could go wrong here. Also loved the hotel dog. (cannot remember his name) I will be back July 30, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Awesome stay Awesome, Awesome Awesome and more awesome. I really enjoyed the hotel. Both my wife and I enjoyed Mr. Bill (pass on a hi from "Mr. Williams"). So, was there anything to pick at or on? NO. I have to absolute favorites...South Haven, Ms, and Indigo in B-R. Awesome sauce....thee was obviously a well oiled machine as workers were a team.... July 26, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Overall Service Great room, friendly staff and a great breakfast/coffee stop across the street. Plenty of good places to eat nearby. July 23, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by eager to please i arrived late to find desk help eager to please with a quick check in. the room was inviting and cozy after a long day. the next morning i awoke to rain and worried about the 2 block walk to my meeting. the staff quickly arranged for the hotel shuttle to deliver me to the meeting - arriving dry and prepared. great hotel going beyond the average to satisfy their guests July 22, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Nice location Everything was great with the exception of the restaurant. We wanted to eat breakfast the next morning but there was no one working there or if there was they did not wait on us. We had to go across the street. July 22, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by almost a great stay... Beautiful new hotel, great rooms, great location with awesome day staff at both the front desk and the bar. Unfortunately, the overnight/early morning staff wrecked our short stay. Ignorant, arrogant and worse...unhelpful. I'll withhold any more comments on subject. I would recommend the hotel if I knew that these overnighters were anomalies, but who knows? Maybe the day staff were the unusual ones. July 17, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Perfect Place to Stay The staff at this hotel are welcoming, friendly, and overall awesome to interact with. My girlfriend and I had a great time borrowing the hotel bikes for a ride along the nearby levee, and taking Huey (the hotel) dog for a walk. June 17, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ABOVE AND BEYOND!! If I could give this stay 10 stars, I would! We made a last minute reservation based on a few recommendations from friends. It was a last minute anniversary trip, but based on the staff's reactions, we might as well have been royalty. We were greeted BY NAME every time we went in or out of the lobby. We had a personalized greeting card in our room along with a complimentary gift for our anniversary. Hotel was clean, modern, comfortable, and within walking distance of everything we wanted to do. Valet was knowledgable, extremely friendly, and quick with our car during our departure. Bed was so comfortable, and the bathrooms were spacious and spotless! We look forward to our next trip to Baton Rouge because WE WILL BE BACK TO THIS HOTEL! I have never had this level of customer service anywhere. Thanks for going ABOVE AND BEYOND. June 16, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great staff, bar, and clean room. This was my second stay at hotel Indigo. It's very modern and comfortable. The staff are very friendly and customer-focused. The A/C was noisy this time, but we only stayed one night, so didn't make a fuss. There isn't a tub in the bathroom, but there is a very roomy shower. June 12, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Wonderful bed and GREAT pillows We all enjoyed our stay. We were there for a wedding party. We hung out at the bar and everyone was friendly When we arrived we hung out in the room for a bit and the bed and pillows were wonderful June 10, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Nice location, trendy hotel Was disappointed this time around with receivng a small room with just a queen size bed. Front desk staff were somewhat indifferent to making our stay special. Restaurant and bar staff were excellent. June 6, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Loved the Hotel Ambience Downtown Baton Rouge stay was a great experience. Really enjoyed Saturday morning walking to the the farmers market and just getting out and enjoying the beauty of downtown on a cool beautiful morning. I live in Baton Rouge and still enjoyed my stay with my wife downtown celebrating our anniversary. Baton Rouge downtown is really starting to turn into a happening place with so many resturants, bars and nice hotels moving into the area. June 3, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Outstanding Customer Service The one thing that sets this hotel apart from the others I have stayed at in Baton Rouge is its customer service. I have never stayed at a hotel with that level of service. Everyone goes out of their way to be friendly and speak. Everyone from housekeeping....maintenance...valet...room service....everyone. Even though I was only there for 2 nights the gentleman that worked in valet remembered my name. All the employees I encountered seemed like they enjoyed being at work and never treated me like a room number. The Hotel Indigo has it figured out that a smile, friendly face and kind words go a long way when dealing with travelers. April 28, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Room Service Room Service was prompt and the service and food was outstanding! April 22, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent stay We had a great time and I walked around downtown Baton Rouge by myself and felt very safe! We did not eat at hotel and u have to go out of downtown to really find places to eat but hotel stay was just fine! April 21, 2014
