"Lots of positives..."
Very good, stylish,hotel; really excellent staff and service; strong location a short walk from centre of city. Room was lovely, although quite a bit of corridor noise which did make a good night's sleep a bit tricky (probably just unlucky). Parking not far away at £9 for 24 hours. Good breakfast. Would recommend for a short stay in York.
"Pluses and Minuses"
I'm a big fan on IHG hotels and booked directly with them. The price, for a couple of nights was good and competitive with just about anything else in the city. It's near the center of York, or at least the historical center, although it is a little walk. The area has some good restaurants in (although our experience was that wanting to eat in them and getting a reservation were two separate things!) very close to the hotel. The area around the hotel isn't perfect though and one evening when we left there were some juveniles basically making themselves unpopular and trying to block us walking on the pavement. This was within 100 yards of the hotel entrance The hotel is modern, and the rooms not unpleasant. However there's a large amount of 'fake' art trying to link the hotel to the history of the area. To my mind it looks rather cheap and I doubt if it will age well. I understand the hotels intent - but trying to give a modern building a historical context with 'objets' on the wall isn't easy. In terms of dining and drinking there's certainly a large area set up for it, but it's all rather cold, sterile and 'hotel in a box. There weren't many people there whenever we passed through and it didn't look particularly cheap. For IHG members there obviously isn't the full range of benefits you might expect. There were some we hadn't seen before (points if you chose not to have your room made up) but frankly I think IHG is taking some of these opportunities to gain points a little far. If you are in the city on business this hotel would work well. For a vacation - it depends on whether you want a nice room with a comfortable bed, or a property with rather more 'real' character.
"Excellent central position"
Nice clean hotel. Modern. Plus points for position. Park up your car because you will have no need for it, this hotel is perfectly placed right in the centre of York. Safe parking within 2 minutes walk of hotel
"A great change from your usual chain"
Hotel indigo is charming. Some might say the decor is a little cluttered but it's really tastefully done and a lovely change from the bog standard chain hotel. Great location central to all city sites and amenities Good restaurant with wide breakfast choice
"Worth every penny"
We stayed for a couple of nights in December. Easy to find and lucky enough to get one of the five parking spaces at the rear of the hotel. The cost is £12 per night. The room was 133, on the first floor. What can I say' Beautiful, stunning, interior design was lovely. Has everything you would need. Big tv well placed, fridge, lovely bespoke furniture, air con/heating controls. Very clean. Wooden floor with a nice rug. Plug sockets next to the bed. Complimentary chocolate, water, milk etc. Dressing gowns, slippers, nice plush towels. Top banana, gorgeous and quirky. We paid extra for breakfast, which I thought was included with the price. The breakfast is £12.95 each. Really nice selection of cheeses, cereals, pastries, even a hangover cure! Thena nicecooked breakfast of choice. Lovely Yorkshire tea and the staff are the politest I've known. The hotel is about 5 minutes walk from town centre. Really can't fault the place.
