They only place to stay in Ft. Myers as far as i'm concerned and i've spent quite a bit of time in Lee County.  It's a classic boutique hotel, with a little bit of a modern twist.  The only problem is the room service and the restaraunt, they are horrible, but the rest of the staff is absolutely the best group of people you'll find working in the industry anywhere.  They really know how to make you feel at home from the front desk to the housekeepers, the bartenders and the valet.  They get to know their guests by name.  The pool is small and the gym is too, but the rooftop bar is a nice spot to relax and unwind from a long day at the courthouse across the street.  If that doesn't get it, then Bacchus, The Indigo Room or the World Famous Cigar Bar all in walking distance will.  Overall, even though it's the only place to stay in Ft. Myers it's still a boutique hotel and it is in Ft. Myers.

Hands down the best Northern Italian restaurant in Fort Myers. Not another one of those places that just serves eeverything with a red sauce - this chef uses interesting ingredients and turns out tasty fare. Best veal chop I've had in forever. The pastas rock especially the sausage, white bean, rapini in the veal stock reduction. And we order one of their pizzas as a starter everytime (five visits so far). Best crust I've had since I moved to Florida. Lets hope this place can start a downtown Fort Myers resurgence.

Small place but LOVE the food. Staff is very nice. I had the Tuna put over a bed of Risotto. i was very impressed it is hard to get a good Risotto anywhere. The good thing about this place is you can have a romantic dinner and go upstairs to your room at the Indigo Hotel or a night out on the town. you are in downtown Ft Myers within walking distance to atleast 7 night clubs/cigar bars. A block away to walk to the water and see the sunset or rise. Happy Eating

This was my first stay at any Hotel Indigo and absolutely will not be the last.  The staff at the hotel were nice and very accomodating.  The roof top bar and pool were very nice, although the pool is small, it is still very welcoming.  

If you are looking to be near the nightlife in Downtown Ft. Myers (and yes there is a nightlife forming there again) this is the ideal hotel.  I didn't eat in the hotel (nor do I usually) so I can't comment on the restaurant.

I am planning another trip to Ft. Myers in a few weeks and already booked my stay there.

Really the only place to stay in Fort Myers if you have any business downtown.  clean rooms and friendly staff.  Good burger from room service and good breakfasts at the restaurant.

As most, if not all, of my reviews so far in Florida have started, so shall this one start. My wife and I just moved here from Seattle, IMHO, home to one of the best Italian restaurants this side of Italy, Osteria La Spiga. If you are in Seattle visiting, go there. You won't regret it. And if you talk to Pietro or Chris, tell them Jason and Georgia sent you (and that we really miss them!!!).

A couple of months ago, someone told me, "Don't bother going anywhere else for Italian, go to Donato's in Port Charlotte". I may have a hard time taking advice from that person again because the food was mediocre at best. If you like Italian-American mafioso style 'classics', you might like it but if you like actual Italian or Italian inspired food, don't go there. We also went to some other place in Port Charlotte which was unremarkable and have driven past the Cucina-Carraba's-Olive-di Beppo or whatever the big chains are called. Ughh....no.

So my wife was looking up Italian restaurants and came across the Yelp page for Vino de Notte. Good reviews...looks promising. I didn't get my hopes up though, I hate being disappointed.

We get there on a Sunday evening and there's not another diner in the place. Not a good sign, even considering it's a Sunday. But we ventured down from Punta Gorda so I didn't want to mess with finding somewhere else to eat.

Before you read any farther, I can tell you right now, being empty is the only negative thing I have to say about Vino de Notte.

We're seated by a friendly hostess. A few moments later someone dropped off some bread and a white bean based spread which turns out to be delicious. This bodes well...

As an appetizer we ordered the veal and ricotta meatballs. Tender, moist, seasoned just right and very tasty. So far...things are looking good.

For our main dishes, we both ordered pasta. My wife ordering the pasta bolognese (I don't remember the actual pasta type, seems like it could have been linguine but I'm not sure). It was intriguingly good. The cinnamon in the sauce was unexpected but a nice change. The flavors were not too heavy as so many bolognese iterations can be. Very nice.

I ordered the rigatoni with sausage, white beans and broccoli rabe. Fantastic! I loved it. Again, the flavors were bold but not heavy. The sausage had a bit of a spicy bite to it. The broccoli was a perfect addition to this dish, providing a great 'green' flavor to balance the sausage, which alone could have been way too overpowering for a whole dish of pasta.

In all, I was far from disappointed, I was actually impressed. My bar for acceptable Italian food has been set pretty high and they definitely exceeded it. Not only was everyone we interacted with friendly, the waiter was great. Not like he had much to do, but he still stood there and talked to us quite a bit, answered all of our questions and indulged our requests for extra this and that.

Go forth and enjoy good Italian food @ Vino de Notte.

So, let me start off by saying I really want to give this place more stars! I really really do, but the last visit will not allow for it.

On several occasions, I have had appetizers at the bar inside the hotel and above on the rooftop deck. The calamari has been outstanding every time I have had it there. So was the thin crisp pizza.

This visit, my husband and I decided to try the actual restaurant. It was a Friday night around 8pm when we arrived to a virtually empty dining room. We actually asked if they were open for service.

We decided to start off with wine and appetizers and then decide on entrees. The wine, a Gavi di Gavi, was excellent. We ordered the appetizer plate of veal and ricotta meatballs in a creamy tomato sauce and the Vino de Notte salad to start.

Everything looked beautiful when it arrived, but our excitement plummeted after tasting the first lukewarm meatball.  I mean, really, we are the only people in the place and you can not even heat up the meatballs and sauce thoroughly? It broke my heart.

Our salad, which consisted of arugula, spinach, blackberries, cayenne dusted cashews, & caramelized onions in a bacon, Dijon, apple cider vinaigrette (which sounded amazing) turned out to be  lackluster. All we could taste was bacon drippings in the dressing. We think they forgot to add the Dijon mustard and vinegar, because it was lacking the acidic bite we were hoping for in the imaginative dressing.

We did not complain...we are not the type. Our server told us they have a new chef, and he created the new salad. She also noted that the place has gone through several chefs since opening. Could this be the reason for the inconsistency that we experienced on this visit? Or, is the kitchen staff only able to produce hot food when it is busy? Either way, the appetizers were so disappointing that we skipped ordering entrees and got the check.

I think from now on, we will just stick with an order of calamari and a drink at the bar.

I have been staying at this hotel every week for the last 6 months. I LOVE the location, the rooms are comfortable and "cool" without being pretentious. Unfortunately the hotel has changed owners recently and I am already seeing a downward turn.

The restaurant quality has taken a step or two down-- what used to be a great place to eat is now just "OK." I eat there in a pinch when I am too tired to go out after a long day at work, I don't exactly look forward to it like I once did.

The owners have let some of the staff go recently-- people that made my stay a joy, including 2 of the bartenders at the rooftop bar. Why? Who knows. They were well known and drew a crowd. The new staff is again, "OK" but not great.

I still love you, Hotel Indigo, I just miss my old hotel. Step it up, please! I will be staying there for another year!

It's always a pleasure staying at the Hotel Indigo in downtown Ft. Myers!  I've stayed there many times.  The valet staff is always very courteous and efficient.  The hotel is always very clean.  Above all, it's a boutique hotel located right in the middle of downtown.  Make reservations early, especially for holiday/event weekends.

Stayed there May 29th. At $109.00 a night one would expect that they would put you in a room with a working shower? Then you'd think they would care when you contact them. Over rated no guest servives and poor front desk service.

This is a fabulous little restaurant, nicely located downtown in the Hotel Indigo. The bankruptcy of the hotel has apparently not affected this place because it is certainly open & serving outstanding food.

My mushroom pizza was fantastic with an extremely thin crust, just the way I like it!  Three of us shared a bottle of Italian red wine (Montepulciano) and it was perfect. We also had calamari as an appetizer and the others had a meatball sandwich and the yellow beet & goat cheese salad. Everything was delicious and all were quite happy with their meals.

I highly recommend this place!

There's several reasons to enjoy staying at The Indigo; here are mine.

Location:  for doing business in or enjoying the downtown Fort Myers area, you can't beat the Indigo.  There are several really cool restaurants and bars within just a few blocks' walk from the hotel.

Rooftop bar:  this is a sweet spot to have a drink, take a dip in the pool, or just enjoy the view of the river and Fort Myers.

Rooms:  they're very comfortable, furnished in a clean and modern style, and the housekeeping has been good on the occasions I've stayed.

Very nice property in downtown Ft Myers. Walking distance to many restaurants and bars in the area which is being revitalized.
The hotel is a converted landmark-- post office and has a roof top bar and pool. The staff is always friendly and accommodating which really makes a difference. I am a Hilton guy but this hotel has converted me when I am in Ft Myers every other week.
Oh there is a good Oriental restaurant in the building, a Starbucks and a French Bakery next door. Doesn't get much better for a home away from home!

Stayed at the hotel on 6/9.  Overall experience was ok.  Clubs / wedding parties make for a loud evening.  Didnt sleep much that night....Hotel room was located in nice area, the room was oversized and bathroom was also bigger than average.
Plenty of street parking and valet.

I've never stayed here but me and my fiance' tried using them for our wedding which is going to be a couple miles down the road. We talked to a lady at the reception counter, who was nice and informative about the hotel and it's offerings. The lady who runs the bookings for big wedding parties was off that day so she took our info down and the credit card info to hold a "block" of rooms which is either 5 or 10. We were told they have plenty of rooms available for our date and the wedding booker would contact us. My fiancé then received a letter in the mail a few days later saying thanks for the info request but they were completely booked for our date. This typically wouldn't be bad but upon a phone call, she never had the credit card info to hold rooms anyways and we should think about switching our wedding date. She was rude and unprofessional on the phone. I'll never give them my business by how they conducted the whole situation. Unfortunately, one bad apple can ruin the bunch.

I have been coming to the Indigo for a while now and have, thus far, put up with it.
Last night I filled the bathroom sink with, what I can only describe as, pee water. I let the water run for a while but it did not clear. Even the morning after it had lightened in color, but still was discolored (see photo). There was also a slight sewage smell in the shower. The showers themselves are poorly designed. One cannot help but flood the floor as all there is to keep the water in is a glass panel that does not extend far enough (see photo).
If you like to relax in your room and watch tv with the a/c on, forget it. The a/c units are basically wall units that are so loud it is impossible to hear the tv. This was evidenced by the tv speaker being blown and distorted... obviously a previous inmate had attempted to adjust the volume up and the high volume had a detrimental effect.
Honestly if there was another hotel within walking distance of the courthouse I would not hesitate to jump ship but, sadly for now, convenience wins over comfort.

This is my first Hotel Indigo experience, and on the whole I'm fairly pleased.

+Spacious room
+Hardwood floors, trendy-ish decor/look.
+Aveda hair products
+big flatscreen, Keurig coffeemaker
+Friendly staff
+Cookies at front desk (lemonade too, but it's gross)
+Fast & free wi-fi
+Recycling bin! Never saw that before in a hotel room.
+Great location; walking distance to restaurants

-$14 valet parking, no hotel self-parking (though there are a couple nearby lots that they'll tell you about)
-No easily accessible outlet by bed...while I appreciate that we should be less tied to our electronics, the reality is that many of us want to be able to charge devices near our bed.

Beautiful Hotel! stayed one night here with a family member when we travelled to Fort Myers. Modern Decor, nice hard wood floors, the wifi was a little slow, awesome and friendly staff, big rooms, comfy bed. Its located just minutes to all these beautiful little town shops around fort myers. Excellent shopping. starbucks walking distance a plus. friendly neighborhood kind of feeling outside the hotel. gorgeous area. will definitly stay there again next time!

ROYALTY. That is how I was treated at Indigo and I'll be back. The hotel was upbeat and modernly decorated. My corner room was large with a funky, sophisticated set up. I travel for business and this hotel has the best value for your buck.

LOCAL: It's a great area to check out fun bars, bistros and artsy boutiques. There is a nearby pier and all of places are within walking distance. Connected to the hotel are two restaurants and on the corner is a Starbucks and locally owned bakery. The local shop owners and residents are super friendly. It made my trip feel less like a business trip and more like I was at home. Love it.

SERVICE: I noticed there wasn't a room service menu so I called the front desk. They came up, brought me the am paper and menu and took my order right at my room. Then within a few minutes I was sitting in bed eating my breakfast sandwich (2.5 star on breakfast).

The pool is tiny. My view was of rooftops and windows needed a wipe-down. Street parking, but valet is 14.00.

Fair sized gym. Free wifi. Beds are super comfy. The room has 2 robes, beach towels, a large bathroom, a Kuerig and nice HD tv.

I'm a "New Urbanist" and believe you me Fort Myers need lots of gentrification, but this is not the way to go about it. What a ghastly overhaul, but Fort Myers has never had the determination to make the best of some of the best it has; a charming downtown. They went the low road I am sad to say and while I am thinking about I would advise you to stay out of the dreadfully, uuuugggly lobby which looks like something in suburban Paris that the French have rated ***.

Staff is unresponsive, rooms can be small and have AC/Plumbing issues.  No on-site food and amenities are minimal.  Overpriced for what you get, look else ware.

Had a great stay with the BF! For the price and the location (free parking on the weekends), it fit our needs perfectly. We spent more time on excursions than actually in the hotel, but it was clean and the staff was friendly.

Honestly, I was nervous heading into this trip due to some of the emphatically negative reviews. I travel a ton for work and have stayed in fantastic hotels, as well as a few dumps. And I have to say, this has been a great stay.

Yes, if you're used to top-of-the-line amenities and a bustling restaurant/bar area with gourmet food... then you'll probably be disappointed. But Hotel Indigo, much like (in my opinion) the majority of downtown Fort Myers, is working on it. And I'm sorry - the Starbucks is about 3 steps away and there is a strip of decent restaurants a block away. Deep breaths, everyone.

Ok, so the good stuff: The staff was wonderful, from the front desk employees (and super sweet intern), housekeeping staff, and bartender on the roof. Our room was large, clean, and the beds were comfortable (though I'll admit that the A/C unit might be the loudest one I've ever heard - maybe bring earplugs?). The bathroom was big enough for two of us to get ready in and the shower was also quite nice. The pool is small, but nice. And the gym had more than enough in it; it was never crowded.

This was my first trip to Fort Myers, but if I had to stay in the downtown area again, I'd totally stay here. Don't be scared off!
