Hotel Indigo, San Diego

Hotel Indigo, San Diego, California

While Kev was was at Sony, they put us up in La Jolla, right across the street from the offices where he was testing video games, so he could walk to work each morning. After he was done, we decided to spend an extra couple of days exploring the city together and moved down to the Hotel Indigo in the Gaslamp District of San Diego.

I was completely smitten with this boutique hotel! Loved the wood floors.

Oh my gosh, this bed. I don’t know how I ever got out. The bed, the pillows, the comforter.. It completely swallowed me whole.

Cute little desk for email checking.

Kev took over this comfy chair by the big window.

Loved this round closet and the funky art wall.

Here’s the bathroom. The large amounts of counter space were much appreciated.

The steam shower was pretty.

And my favorite, the little wood tiki bench.

And finally, the funky hallway with the flower-patterned carpet. Mesmerizing!

Totally loved our stay here. I don’t think I’ll ever forget how scrumptiously comfy that bed was!

Hi Amanda,
I just love your photos!
Can I ask what settings you use on your camera to get such clear bright pictures indoors? I’m having problems getting really sharp indoor images…
As a newby to DSLR photography I need all the help I can get! :-)
Many Thanks – LOVE your blog!
Nicollette

LOVE THIS HOTEL! My husband and I stayed here for our honeymoon. They gave us a corner room with floor to ceiling windows on both walls. AMAZING! And how about the roof top terrace with the super cool fire pits? I want to go back to San Diego JUST to stay at this hotel! :)

How fun! Beautiful bed! And I’m a sucker for comfortables ones, too – especially in hotels, when you never know what you’re going to get. =)

How could you leave this beautiful place. When a vacation is really wonderful it is hard to go back to the real world. Love all the light, modern styles of today’s fashion furniture.

My husband and I stayed at a Hotel Indigo in the Chicago area. When we walked in it was as if we had taken a flight to the tropics. Everything had an island feel to it with the colors and furnishings. We felt as if we were on a double getaway!

Glad you had such a great experience. Loved seeing your room and the photos are super. Gives me the traveling bug!

A view of a ballpark? And a Keurig machine right in the room? That’s my kind of hotel room!

How did you ever get yourself placed in that little square? :)
Gasp, you are NOT wearing your strap! I was told that was RULE #1 when taking pictures!

Love your review!

La Jolla is so beautiful. I haven’t been there in years. What a great opportunity for you. And that hotel looked delightful!
Your blog is so enjoyable. I especially liked the dogs with the hose. That was so funny.

I’ve stayed there, and it was AWESOME. I wish I would have researched it more because it’s pet friendly too with no breed restrictions. When you have a pit you look into those things. That’s why they do the wood flooring; to ensure no allergies! So in tune.
