Fodor's Review

The closest hotel to the train station, artsy Hotel Indigo (opened in 2012) is a great choice for travelers who appreciate contemporary art and want easy access to dining, nightlife, and the beach. The eco-friendly, Euro-style hotel partners with the Museum of Contemporary Arts as a satellite space, with curated exhibitions that change annually. Some rooms have private outdoor gardens and mountain views, and the spalike bathrooms have collapsible glass-wall showers. Several

small upstairs lounges provide guests with alternative social venues and a bird's-eye view of the waterfront or downtown scene. If you are a light sleeper, ask for a room on the beach rather than the train side of the hotel.
