Hotel Indigo Tuscaloosa Downtown

Travel Like An Explorer, Stay Like A Local

Experience the true spirit of Tuscaloosa at Hotel Indigo® Tuscaloosa Downtown, the city’s first waterfront hotel overlooking the Black Warrior River. Admire river views from our rooftop bar, or grab one of our bikes on loan and head to the Tuscaloosa Riverwalk to watch paddleboats and kayaks ride the current. Less than a mile away from the University of Alabama, we offer the perfect place to stay for the electric excitement of football games and graduations. You’ll find a myriad of unique shops and restaurants downtown, and you can see both local and nationally touring acts at Tuscaloosa Amphitheater, the largest outdoor music venue in West Alabama. Inside the hotel, locally inspired murals fill the walls — we also host a gallery expansion from the Kentuck Art Gallery just across the river — and our restaurant and bar feature authentic Southern food and drinks. Even your room will reflect the neighborhood’s tradition of culture, education and industry through modern décor and rustic furnishings that are distinctly Alabamian.
