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.

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.

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

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!

    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.

    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.

    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!

    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!

    Keurig coffee maker in a hotel room? Awesome! Great pictures. I am new to your site…love it. Thanks to you & your “weight-loss” story. It has given me a new found vigor to get back on track. =)

    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.

    Looks like you had a fabulous stay. That bed totally looked like one that I would crawl up in and never want to get out of!! :)

  15. Kristen@PrettySweet

    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. =)

    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! :)

    Take me there, right now I am looking out my window and its 18 degrees and snowing. The place you stayed looks gorgeous. I’m jealous, but so glad you had a nice time and again thanks for the pics. Paulette

    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!
