It's hard to miss the Hotel Indigo. Rising 11 floors above busy West End Avenue near Vanderbilt and Music Row, the bright-blue exterior is a beacon for trendy travelers looking for a stay with a bit of snob appeal (most folks consider this Nashville's only real boutique hotel—even though it's part of a chain owned by the InterContinental Hotels Group). Indigo's rooms are a bit cramped, something that probably has more to do with the large proportions of the dark-wood furniture and awkward placement of interior walls than actual square footage. But the extra-tall beds and long chaises are good-looking and comfortable, and the Aveda products in the bathroom and sizable walk-in showers are nice touches. On the downside, parking is expensive ($21 a day, even if you self-park), and the lobby restaurant and coffee bar are kind of dinky. The real problem with Indigo is what lies outside the front door: Unless you like gazing on parked cars and the occasional derelict, the view outside the floor-to-ceiling windows is far from attractive. But it's a great deal for the location, so keep your eyes focused on the interior of the lobby, which has large paintings from area artists.
