Our reservations said that breakfast for 2 was included. We were given a voucher for $15. This did not even cover 1 of the meals.

Thank you for your review. We will look into the disparity between our offerings and what's advertised on this website. We have a full service kitchen and bar on site and do not offer complimentary breakfasts, but instead a voucher for cash value towards dining.

Amber at at the front desk is awesome. We think INDIGO Athens is terrific, though having stayed there now 4 times in the past 6 months, I will tell you that no matter what their breakfast service is slow.. and that does not seem to matter whether I am the sole customer at 6:30am or whether it's busy.

Thank you for your review! We absolutely love Amber too! She's a shining example of our commitment to customer service. Our food and beverage team creates fantastic food in our Madison Bar. We will look into making our morning service more expedient. Thank you for bringing this to our attention.
