I have visiited Birmingham many times and this was my first time staying at Hotel Indigo. I was very impressed with the Hotel over all. The staff especially Deshun, at the front desk went above and beyond to make my stay an enjoyable one. His customer service and attention to guest needs was exemplorary and fantatic! The room was perfectly designed and made me feel like I was staying at a friend's house. It was a wonderful experience, and I will be staying there again when I return to Birmingham! I highly reccomend Hotel Indigo! Read less

There are not enough words to describe our amazing experience at The Indigo! From the first call to check in a night early, till the end of our stay, the staff went above and beyond to accommodate us. Stephen ' THE STEPHEN" at the front desk was a angel on earth! He was always present with the best knowledge of restaurants, selecting the perfect room for us, making reservations, phone calls and genuine hospitality. Stephen is the reason I bragged so much and brought my family with 2 additional rooms to the Indigo. They had other accommodations at a , Ummmmmm , not so pleasant B&B in the area. Stephen made sure we had a crib, close rooms, accommodated a late check out for delayed flights and the list goes on and on and on. Our room 503 was a 2 room king suite with views of Birmingham. So many windows with cushioned seats. A yummy comfortable bed with the perfect covers and pillows. Clean, spacious, cool colors, black out blinds, living room, kitchen and seating area with a bathroom stocked with Aveda products. Valet was not just valet. These guys were fantastic. Garrett stood out like a jewel in a crown. He was a "can do" guy. Always professional and personable. Have you ever checked out of a hotel and need to store your bags for a bit and a valet ask HOW would you like me to load and place your bags? I"ll come to your room, load your car how you'd like it and pull it around for you when you're ready?! A first for us and so grateful. We got in our car for a long drive home. Garrett left a THANK YOU card with his business card for future travel. Casey the co-valet was courteous and full of outstanding service with a smile! My husband and I travel a lot. Being in the airline industry we have had hundreds of hotel encounters. Indigo Birmingham is a TOP experience. 5 Points area has many restaurants next door and walking distance. We'd like to return just to feel like ROYALTY Read less

During a recent procedure at UAB we used the hotel to recover. It was quiet, clean, and comfortable. The best part of the stay was the Valet Casey who was one step ahead of our every need. The only knock on the hotel was the kitchen in the suite. It didn't have a microwave and the refrigerator was poor. Normally this would not have mattered… Read more
During a recent procedure at UAB we used the hotel to recover. It was quiet, clean, and comfortable. The best part of the stay was the Valet Casey who was one step ahead of our every need. The only knock on the hotel was the kitchen in the suite. It didn't have a microwave and the refrigerator was poor. Normally this would not have mattered to us traveling, but our stay was medical and we really needed those amenities since getting out to restaurants wasn't an option. It's close to UAB Medical Center so ambulance noise is factor to consider. Read less

The property was originally a medical building, so the design team used its history to create a cool, hip, modern, apothecary theme, complete with front desk staff in white lab coats. The spacious apartment-like rooms are awesome with a cool modern boutique hotel vibe. It can be pricey as the rates fluctuate depending on local events and conferences. The fun apothecary motif is carried through to the cocktail lounge. On display is a myriad of test tubes with brightly colored liquid and various lab equipment. It completely draws you into their "cocktail lab" for an enjoyable concoction! The hotel is located in the trendy hip Five Points district so there are plenty of places within walking distance to eat and enjoy craft beer and cocktails. Valet parking is pricey but I recommend it, as it solves the problem of downtown parking. Best Tip: Don't forget to get your IHG points since this hotel is part of the InterContinental Group.

This is a nice hotel for a decent price. The location is spot on for any business downtown. The staff is friendly and goes over the top to make your stay a nice one. Special recognition to Casey the valet and Marcus the bartender.
