    • Couple

      Rooms were small, but decorated nice and felt homey. I would definately stay here again. I like the fact that everything still felt and looked new because its only a yr old. We walked to Lucas Oil Stadium in no time which was a plus.

      Instead of heating up a Jimmy Dean sandwich, I would rather have fresh scrambled eggs and bacon or sausage. The sandwich bagel was chewy and the sausage and cheese were gross. I have stayed at cheaper hotels that serve the eggs and bacon and dont have a large kitchen to cook in so I would think it could be done.

    • Older travelers

      We chose to valet park our car which was only 5 dollars more and a wise choice. We had no problem with retrieving our vehicle. The check-in and check out went extremely smoothly. We have a good view from the eighth floor of the museums and some of the city..The room was clean, modern and very comfortable. The bathroom was also very clean and up to date. The shower had hot water and great water pressure. It was awesome... The breakfast was good. There was a good variety of sandwiches and fruit as well as hot oatmeal and cold cereals and waffles.... TGI Fidays is attached on the first floor and was also excellent. For the money I would say it was overall a very nice experience..

      The wi-fi continually cut off and we had to keep signing back in.. May have been because we were both trying to use it at the same time on our own mobiles but that should not have been an issue.. Be sure to write down the code you receive when you first sign on. It was only an issue when we opened our browser. Smart phones and apps worked fine. First morning wake up call was great second morning did not receive wake up call at all...

    • Family with children

      That everything I need to go to was within walking distance of the Hotel.

      That they advertised having roll away beds available and they did not have them. Due to them being taken away by the cities fire marshal.

    • Group of friends

      Not any one thing. Closeness to the event we attended. Very friendly check-in staff. Great breakfast

      Parkin garage was a little confusing

    • Older travelers

      Continental Breakfast Close vicinity to Lucas Oil Stadium Close vicinity to TGI Fridays

      Everything was good or better.

    • Older travelers

      It was clean, bathrooms were updated and the staff was friendly

      I did not like the price of parking, when I stay at other hotels in small cities the price of parking is included in the hotel rate. For example the Marriot in downtown lexington has parking included and has special rates 4 times a year of $ 90 per nite. I also felt the rooms were small, no where to put suitcases for and other bags for 2 people

    • Older travelers

      The staff was exceptionally friendly. I love the location. Customer service is top notch! The morning we needed to get our car out of Valet, it was blocked in or something , so the manager went to help the valet attendant and the manager himself pulled the car around . It means a lot to me when I see people working together like that!

      My only complaint was our bed . We stayed about a month prior to this visit and the bed was wonderful . This time our bed sunk into the middle and we did not sleep well at all. But that is my only complaint .

    • Older travelers

      The rooms was very comfortable. Nothing ot fance but elegant. The beds and pillow were amazing. We are thinking of buying on of those beds for home. The personal were all freindly all the way from the valey, house keepers, desk everyone was great.

    • Older travelers

      Liked it's closeness to downtown - was a great weekend weather wise and could just walk to where we wanted to go.

      Breakfast was not up to par and the parking is way too expensive.

    • Older travelers

      This hotel is a great venue right next to the convention center! If you want to be quiet, Breakfast is included in the price, be at breakfast early though, because you won't have much fruits left anymore if you arrive late! Great place to stay if you attend a convention in Indy

      Choose bedrooms at the front (the noisy aircon from the JW Marriott is right next to the back yard bedrooms!!!)

    • Single

      Everything was very clean and the breakfast was good each morning. It was an excellent location for visiting White River park and the main shopping centre (had a covered walk way all the way).

    • Single

      The service was nice and friendly. The room was large and had all that I expected and the bed was really good.The wifi speed was quite okay as well. The location was not in the inner city but it was quite okay, close to a couple of museums

    • Single

      Good hotel in the price range, very new construction, so room was very perfect. Good breakfast. A restaurant just outside which remains open til midnight.

      Nothing bad.

    • Couple

      Parking is very overpriced ($23 parking, $27 valet) espically when I've stayed at other hotels in the downtown area that have free parking and fee valet for guests. That is my only complaint.

    • Older travelers

      Fast friendly service.

      The room was smaller than we anticipated however it did not effect our stay.
