Hotel Indigo Scottsdale Old Town guyonthego

Hotel Indigo is a midsized and mid-range hotel in the Entertainment District of Scottsdale. The hotel was built in 1998 and was originally a Hampton Inn. It became an Indigo in 2007. Floors 2-5 are the primry floors with facilities and guest rooms; the ground floor has a parking garage, outdoor pool, and the hotel entrance. Indigo has 126 rooms and 9 suites. Basic room rates tend to range from $110-250. There is a $9 parking fee Thursday-Saturday. Pets are accepted and don’t require an extra fee. Smoking is not permitted.

The Indigo brand is part of the Intercontinental Hotels Group and features a more eclectic and boutique experience than as with a traditional hotel like a Hampton Inn or Courtyard. Indigos offer such accoutrements as stylish wall art, eccentric light fixtures, slip rugs, and hardwood floors. Also, both the guest rooms and common areas are frequently updated or otherwise enhanced to keep things looking trendy and cool.

The outdoor pool is on the smaller side but is heated and so is open year round. There also is a medium size workout room. A hotel restaurant serves breakfast, lunch and dinner; room service is offered during meal times. Dinner typically ends at 10:00pm, and breakfast usually starts at 6:00am. One of the benefits of the hotel's location is proximity to a range of bars and restaurants, including a mellow bar right next door. Some of the restaurants include Don and Charlie's, Zipps Sports Grille, and El Hefe Mexican food. A free courtesy shuttle is usually offered within a few miles of the hotel.

After arriving late to the hotel, really late, the night clerk annoyingly assigned a room with a connecting door. He then made amends for it with an upgrade to a suite. The suite's main room was about the same size as a standard room, but the entrance area was large as was the bathroom which had double sinks and a spacious walk-in shower. Suites here include a small fridge, and a microwave was delivered upon request. As for the room itself, it was very clean but did had a few nicks and scratches in the walls and furniture. The AC was not cool enough in the morning which necessitated getting up early to adjust the temperature. The bed was large and comfortable. Bathroom equipment worked properly, but the sink bowl did not leave a lot of space to wash your hands. Hallway noise was audible even though the hotel was only half full. If you are noise sensitive, request a room at the end of the hall. Exterior noise was not a factor. This hotel gets points on style, and service was generally strong. Room quality was good but not great. Overall the Indigo was better than average, so when a night in the Entertainment District is on the agenda, this hotel is a decent choice for convenient lodging.
