Hotel Indigo

For part of our anniversary celebration, our dear friend, Mary, volunteered to watch the kids...overnight.  She is a saint.  And the kids LOVE her.  We got a hotel up in Durham to stay after we went to the temple.

It.

was.

awesome.

AND affordable.  (Our room with a king bed was $79.  If I would have booked sooner, I could have gotten it for $64!  Weeknight rates are more.)

I HIGHLY recommend it.  It's called Hotel Indigo.  
 
 It is gorgeous.  Very modern.  100% smoke free.  

Take a peek at our room.

I loved all the bright colors.

And big, bold artwork.

I even loved the bathroom.

But the huge tulip wall was a bit over the top for me.

My new favorite hotel.  I'm already trying to scheme up reasons why we need to go again.  Maybe I'll schedule the latest appointment possible with Dr. Buckley and convince Andrew that we need to stay the night instead of driving home.  

I also told Andrew that I'm ready to redecorate.  He's not so sure.  Even though I promised leave out the tulip wall.

They just finished a Hotel Indigo in downtown Asheville last October. We just finished a room in the Blau Hotel this spring. Plenty places to stay when you come to visit.

That room is hilarious with all those colors.

Ooooh, Ryan. How about the kids stay at Hotel Blau and Andrew and I check out Asheville's Indigo?

If the 1970's Houston Astros jerseys were a modern-day hotel, they would be the Hotel Indigo. I totally digged it, babe. What a weekend!

Looks like we're going to have to do some updating of our condo. Maybe a large gladiola wall!
Thanks for sharing.
