Bottom Line

The 170-room, upper-middle-range Hotel Indigo occupies a historic building with a classy city feel, and offers easy access to downtown Dallas’ businesses, museums, and restaurants. Business travelers appreciate the free Wi-Fi, free breakfast, and business center, while good food at the restaurant and a small fitness center appeal to all guests. The elegant and comfortable rooms have modern amenities like flat-screen TVs, mini-fridges, Aveda toiletries, and coffeemakers, but like bathrooms, some are tight on space. The affordable price in such a desirable location is a draw, but it's worth comparing rates with the charming and stylish Magnolia Hotel nearby.

Oyster Hotel Review


Modern elegance that captures the historic importance of this downtown building

Hotel Indigo operates in cities that are cultural wellsprings, and designs hotels to reflect the flavor of their location. The Dallas location is in a building designated a National Historic Landmark, and was once the location of the Dallas Opera House. The exterior maintains its traditional facade on a street heavy with traffic and city noise, but once inside the busy city feeling slips away. Renovations in 2016-17 resulted in a contemporary, chic style. The white-and-gray color scheme with rich maroon accents is elegant, and historic elements give the design a classic city feel. Murals reflect the history of the building with black-and-white photographs, and the bar -- Titches Bar and Bistro -- is named for the well-known local department store that occupied the building for many years. Old-fashioned suitcases, travel trunks, and arrays of framed mirrors serve as decor. The hotel is popular with business travelers for the city location and convenient on-site amenities, but leisure travelers are also drawn here by nearby sights. 


Centrally located in downtown Dallas, within easy reach of entertainment and businesses

In the heart of downtown Dallas, this hotel is easy to reach and has convenient walking access to plenty of sights, restaurants, and businesses -- many within a 10-minute walk. It is on a corner of Main Street, diagonally located from the city’s municipal courts and across from a parking garage and the Main Street Garden Park. The hotel is built over a section of the old Dallas underground system, and it has an access point for shops and dining in the tunnels. The historic Majestic Theater is just around the corner, a minute’s walk away, while the Dallas Museum of Art is an 11-minute walk from the hotel. A bus stops just outside the building, and there’s a rail station a six-minute walk away. The Sixth Floor Museum, a moving tribute to the shooting of President Kennedy, is a five-minute drive from the hotel. It is also a five-minute drive to the Kay Bailey Hutchinson Convention Center, a huge facility hosting all kinds of major events. Dallas Love Field Airport is a 15-minute drive away, and the massive Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport is a 30-minute drive.


Relaxing rooms with an elegant, modern design, mini-fridges, and coffeemakers

Contemporary rooms are tastefully done in shades of gray, with a few maroon accents and touches of black. The design is clean and elegant, consisting of wood floors, modern furniture, and minimal embellishments. Artwork is in the form of black-and-white photographs focused on the history of the area, including large murals on the walls behind the beds. Space is tight in some rooms, due to the historic building, and occasionally, guests find the placement of the television awkward, depending on the layout. Suites have separate living areas with sleeper sofas and are more comfortably arranged. Each room has a flat-screen TV, mini-fridge, coffeemaker, desk, wardrobe, and an iron. Sleek bathrooms -- some of which are rather compact -- have large, walk-in showers with rainfall showerheads. Hairdryers and a range of free Aveda toiletries are provided.


Bistro and bar, small gym, business center, and free Wi-Fi, but no pool or spa

The features here add convenience for visitors to the city, but they're not designed for a relaxing, pampering vacation. The bistro serves good food for breakfast and dinner in a stylish space with houndstooth-patterned accent walls, leather seating with geometric- and floral-print backs, and a gallery wall of mirrors. There’s a fitness center with a good range of equipment, though it is small for the size of the hotel. A stylish and spacious business center has a couple of computers, a TV, and a few seating areas for gatherings. There are several meeting rooms, and Wi-Fi is free throughout the hotel. There’s no on-site parking; the valet service or nearby garage each come with a daily fee. On the upside, free shuttle service is available within a three-mile radius of the hotel. Pets are allowed for a deposit.
