Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by smoochie4dr Overall great place to stay
We chose to stay here due to it's location on the Riverwalk and reasonable price. It is about a mile walk to the main part of the Riverwalk, but for the price it's worth the nice bit of exercise. The room was spacious and clean. The staff was friendly and helpful. Really we only had two complaints. First, we are IHG rewards members and had signed up for a riverfront balcony room but ended up having to choose between a riverfront room/no balcony or a street view balcony. The room we stayed in was nice, but it was still disappointing. Our second complaint was the breakfast selection. Everything we ate was great, but more variety would have been appreciated. They attempted a buffet on Sunday for the first time I believe, which my husband appreciated since he eats a lot of eggs and meat for breakfast. Sat he had an omelet which he enjoyed but it was only a 2 egg omelet I believe. The waiter thought there was bacon on the buffet, but there was only eggs, sausage, French toast sticks, biscuits and gravy, 2 flavors of kolaches, and fruit. We had to pay an additional 4 dollars each as they said the breakfast voucher (normally an $8 value) was not adequate). Many hotels of equal quality would offer this type of breakfast complimentary. For a $12 breakfast buffet I would expect a larger variety of items such as yogurt, bacon, oatmeal, grits, more pastries, etc. Not a major complaint, just something they could improve upon. I will say the steak nachos are wonderful. We would definitely stay here again for the overall value and location.
There is construction going on across the river so if staying during the week you may actually want to be street side as there was quite a bit of noise pretty early in the morning. Not sure how long construction will continue.

I just love this hotel! Always stay here when I am working in San Antonio. Awesome rooms, great staff, nice little bar...and they always have my platinum room upgrade ready when I check in. I wish all of the IHG properties I stayed in through the year were this nice! See you in January.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by skinsfann44 Great Staff
I have to start by saying that I stayed here 4 years ago and had such a horrible experience, we left early and Holiday Inn refunded all my points used. I like to give second chances so I tried the hotel for my business trip, and this time it was a world of difference. The entire staff, from management to front desk to bar and restaurant, were exceptional. I got in a jam when my company sent a package needed for a presentation the next morning to the other Indigo in town. The staff immediately jumped on helping me and they called the other hotel, who searched everywhere for it(it was refrigerated so they had already stored in their fridge), found it, then they went to pick it up for me. It was a meeting saver! I want to call out Armando and Holly for all the help. Great hotel.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by SwamiJohn Nice hotel
This is a nice hotel with a vibrant décor and very friendly staff. Parking arrangement is odd with no parking at the hotel, but located across the street in a somewhat sketchy neighborhood. Don't let that deter you, just be prepared. The deep fried avocado wedges in the bar with jalapeno dipping sauce are to die for1

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 Great stay with a beautiful view
First time saying here, was quite surprised with how good it was. Spent the weekend with my girlfriend and we both enjoyed it very much, nice big rooms and I highly recommended the river walk view rooms. Very clean and neat, it's nice to see a modern styled hotel in the downtown area.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Hg1071 Nice hotel, rude front desk staff
The evening I checked in, the front desk mixed up the credit card info the room should be charged to and (twice) mixed up the room we were supposed to be given keys to. No one in my party was angry about the mix-up, we just had to come back down to straighten it out in order to be able to get into a room. The employee who helped us was named Michael, and he was astoundingly rude to us. He treated us as if we were being aggressive when everyone was totally calm. As a member of my party was calmly telling him what should be charged to her credit card, Michael put his hand up towards her face and told her to "Simmer." After Michael corrected the mix-up and we went up to our room, I was furious with his behavior towards my guests and me. So I came back down to the front desk alone and asked to speak with the manager on duty. Michael told me that he was the only manager on duty, so I told him that my complaint was with the way he treated us. I had absolutely no problem with the room mix-up, only with his poor customer service. He insisted that he was joking (although his speech, facial expressions, & body language had indicated otherwise). Michael apologized and gave me drink coupons for each member of my party, however, I still wanted to express my poor customer service experience because it will deter me from staying at that hotel again.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by tina77 staff over charged room 3 times and cancelled my reservation! !
My girlfriend called to confirm the reservation and someone had cancell it, this was the night before we was headed there. Not to mention the lady told us that they would not charge for the room until the day of the reservation. They charged then and when we got there my girlfriend gave them a different card and they charged that and when we left she checked with them to make sure everything was good and they told her there was still a balance and charged her card again and when it was declined from over charging she placed it on her bank account card. So for a room that should of been 230.00 they ended up charging almost a 1000.00 for it. She got all thw money back but it was such a hassle to deal with.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by FleurdeLirious Beautiful hotel on the Riverwalk
We stayed one night at the Hotel Indigo after attending the Meatopia Festival at the Pearl Brewery. The front desk staff were very nice, the hotel was gorgeous. Parking was available on an open lot directly across the street from the front entrance. The room was a river view room, which was spacious and well appointed. The bathroom was lovely, with a large shower head. Aveda bath products were indulgent and invigorating. Bed was quite comfortable. Balcony with table/chairs was great for winding down with a glass of wine. AM room service breakfast was affordable and good -- esp. the spinach/egg white croissant. Only complaints:
1. There is construction going on in the immediate area, creating a ruckus starting around 0745. The walls/doors are insulated, but it was still noisy enough to be bothersome when the heavy machinery got going. Not their fault, and hopefully won't last too long.
2. After walking across the room post shower, the bottoms of my feet were BLACK. The laminate floors LOOOKED clean, but I guess they weren't... we were only there for one night, and never left doors open or anything, so I can only assume that a less than complete job was done cleaning the floors before we checked in. Everything else was clean and nice.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by indpoly Stay on November 1st & 2nd
The most disappointing part of the trip was that we were locked out of the hotel from the river entrance on November 1st. We were not happy to have to find our way back to the street at midnight. The person at the desk said we should have seen the sign that said the gate was locked at 11 pm.
We did not understand when we booked the hotel that the restaurants were at best estimate, a mile up river. There was a lot of walking involved before we got to what I consider civilization.
upon checking in we were given a parking pass but not advised to place it on the dashboard of the car. After noticing the passes on other cars in the parking lot, I asked the staff if one was needed. I had to go back to my car across the street and place the pass on the dashboard. I am concerned that if I had not asked, my car would have been towed.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jimmy72 Best Stay I have had in San Antonio
I must say this was the best place I have stayed in San Antonio. The management was great at price matching for me and the beds was one of the best I have slept on. Loved the wood floors and tile in the bathroom. I also loved the walk-in shower. The only thing I wish is there was more water pressure in the shower. Other than that I had a great stay.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by NoBalconySteve Not what I paid for
Found Hotel Indigo on the web (IHG) and paid for a River view balcony room.
Got to the hotel and went to my room to find the balcony was a tiny balcony just big enough to stand on.
Back down to the front desk to ask for the room that I had paid for 45 days prior.
I was told that those were first come first serve. I wrongly thought that 45 days would mean I would be one of the first. NOT how it works! If someone walks in the door that day and asks for one of those rooms, they will let them have it. Being a platinum member of IHG and paying for a room 45 days in advance does not get you the room you pay for.
I did not get moved to one of those rooms.
I did not get a discount.
I did get a free breakfast. (I did use this one day and waited for about 45 minutes for an average omelette...)
I will pay less and stay at a better location the next time I head to San Antonio.
BTW, they are building a new Performing Arts center across the way so you get to wake up to heavy construction Monday - Saturday for the next 6 months or so.

Having lived and worked in South and Central America for 38 years, we are generally unimpressed by American lodging establishments. This is the most inviting, home setting, enjoyable and service oriented hotel in which we have stayed since returning to the U.S. It is relaxing, restful, convenient and has the most cheerful and helpful staff of any in our experience. Five stars and THANK YOU for caring for us.

Made visit to Hotel Indigo and thought hotel was unique and interesting. The hotel was clean and staff was very good. My lady friend and I were happy that the hotel had a restaurant and bar on site. We actually entertained friends at the bar. My only con was how far the hotel was from all the action. The good thing was that you could take the River taxi to the to the mall and all the action.There was a taxi stop outside the hotel along the Riverwalk. All in all we had a good time at Hotel Indigo.

What a nice treat to have home baked cookies available in the lobby! The rooms were clean, spacious and modern. The pool was small but nice. There was a fee for parking. The hotel is on the Riverwalk but away from everything. The water taxi is close to the hotel or about 20 minutes to walk to shops and restaurants. The hotel food was very good and the bar was nice. Also nice seating area outside the restaurant and bar area.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by mg57 maybe just bad week for hotel
-first day, only one elevator in service. Large drawer in table between beds would not stay closed, a hazard when getting out of bed.
-second day, woke up to jack hammering at construction site outside my river view room. No iced tea with my breakfast, server told me they used leftover tea from night before for breakfast and they ran out. He also said he could not brew tea.
- third day city water main breaks in front of hotel, no water for that evening or night. Management makes no attempt to let guests know what situation is.
-fourth day, waken up at 5:00 am by false fire alarm. Decided to call it quits & left my conference early.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Awinda Comfortable bed clean room, poor location on the river.
I liked the hotel, but it was far from everything fun. The area was a little scary at night. I though the price was a little high for location. It was at least 1/2 hour walk anywhere to eat. But the hotel staff was great. The room was too warm. Not cool enough for me, even though we turned down the thermostat. I won't stay again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by greengo48 Awesome staff
one of the nicest staff I have ever encounter. Everyone goes out of their way to provide you service. The Décor is so modern and the rooms are modern ,large, and inviting. I love the Kerig coffee maker in the room. And it is great that they allow pets, so many hotels do not allow pets! the parking is across the street so there is not a long walk to your car. It is a little farther away from all of the activities of the River walk so get ready for a long walk. They do have a river taxi which comes by every 30 minutes but we were never able to catch one. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone. The hotel service is the best I have ever experienced.
