2/10 Poor

I would consider this more of a motel than a hotel. The walls were all scuffed up and baseboard trim was peeling off the wall. I highly do not recommend wasting your money at this run down property.

This is a party hotel.
Mixed feelings about our stay. You should know that this is a party hotel, especially Thurs-Sat. I didn't know - I've stayed at many NYC hotels with rooftop bars and a little late night energy is cool but...Mr. purple is a full blown club with very young and trashy clientele. Having to wait behind huge groups of messed up kids just to catch the elevator to our room was really unpleasant. I expect noise in nyc and come prepared, but if you're on a floor close to club no amount of noise canceling is going to help you. The staff was always helpful and polite - they recognized that we were not here for the party and put us on a floor away from the club. The room was ok for the price point - comfortable enough and surprisingly spacious. They rectified some pretty bad mistakes very someone "forgetting" to put in a last minute rsvp I made over the phone and a glitch that charged everyone in the hotel 7k. know, those things really should not have happened to begin with. I've worked in hospitality all my life - things happen. They did their best to recover and the staff really deserves credit for how they handled everything. Unfortunately, between these issues and the whole 'coked up kids with fake IDs' vibe...we will not be repeating this stay.

Rooms are not as pictured
We booked a premium queen and got what looked exactly like a standard one. One small window, tiny space, minimal amenities in room. When we inquired in the reception and showed them the photo, they told us we've got the right room. Definitely not worth $500...

Fun location and loved the decor.
Great location to be near where our daughter lives and many restaurants/coffee places. Easy walk to subway to get anywhere in the city. Glad there was a work out room.

Nickel'd & Dimed, not able to use entire hotel
Overall, a great hotel in a good location with a comfortable bed, great view (19th floor). I booked with a chain as I was concerned about having staff at the hotel and felt there was a better chance here. Cons: Limited access to the patio area, as it's managed by a third party (Mr. Purple). When I booked was thinking it would be nice to bring up and have some wine at night on the patio before dinner - no-go. Along with that, the pool is only available to guests until 1PM (which I didn't know and wasn't told at check-in), and after that reservations have to be made through a third party. I was unable to get a reservation so not sure if a cost is applicable. Amenity fee is a bit of a joke - includes local calls, gym and really nothing else, it's primarily a way for the hotel to charge less per night and then get extra $ on top amenity fee is ~$28/night. I'll plan to stay at another hotel the next time I visit.

...Or just sleep in a dirty night club
Absolutely a terrible experience. Lobby staff failed to inform me that my premium "city view" room was one floor above the night club which would have thumping music until 3AM on a weeknight. They explained that weekends could get loud and apologized that they did not inform me. I explained that Wednesday is NOT a weekend. If you want to party like an idiot, it might be a fun place to stay. But if you want a clean, quite spot to enjoy exploring the Lower East side, don't stay here. And don't get me started on the non-disclosed $25 amenity fee they charge for "prepaid" minibar service that doesn't even include potable water.

Loss of amenity?
Indigo is ideally located for Lower East Side. But COVID (or so the hotel says) has resulted in a loss of amenity inside the hotel itself which makes it difficult to justify the high “resort fee”.
