Hotel Indigo Brooklyn: Just Basic

Hotel Indigo Brooklyn Hotel Review is part of the TPOL in NYC ongoing Trip Report and the ANA, Take Me ‘Round the World Trip Report.

Getting There: Take the AirTrain + LIRR combo.

Some people swear by the IHG brand. I do not. I never participate in their points promotion and typically only stay at one of their hotels if there is a smoking points deal (see IC Phoencia vs. Le Vendome Beirut: Either Way, Time to Splurge) or if I have a stay certificate (InterContinental David Tel Aviv: Worth Burning the Cert). Another trip to NY meant another night in a hotel. This time prices weren’t dirt cheap so I used my stay certificate for the Hotel Indigo Brooklyn. a black double doors with glass windows


There’s a cluster of hotels in downtown Brooklyn including the Sheraton, Aloft, and Indigo. The location is convenient if you need to be close to the federal courthouse or near the financial district.

What a view.


The service is lousy. The front desk is rude. I had a suit pressed and delivered to the hotel. They didn’t bother calling me to say that it had arrived. They did call to say that I had stayed past my ‘late’ 2PM checkout. I said I was waiting for my suit to be delivered. I called the dry cleaners and asked when I could expect it. They said it was delivered at 12. I called the front desk again and they said it had arrived. Too annoyed to fight, I went down, retrieved my suit, changed, and left.


This is a basic room. The night I stayed, the room was going for $800. I can’t believe anyone or any company would spend that much for this.

No free bottled water but there is a free glass for water provided. two white bags with text on them


This place has zero value. I burned the certificate to avoid paying crazy NY hotel prices.

      • Yes. And 20% of NYC hotels are now hosting some homeless people, so do call before you check into a hotel so there’s no surprises (many homeless people are just fine, but many have other problems like drug and alcoholic or mentally ill or sex offender.)
