“Great stay at a downtown hotel without the downtown price”
Reviewed 1 February 2012

Stayed here one night while visiting the super Bowl Village.

The good:
Check in and out staff where very friendly
Free parking (saves $20-25 other downtown hotels charge)
Decent free breakfast. I've had better and I've also had worse.
Within walking distance to central downtown and sports venues. From the hotel to the Super Bowl Village was a 7 minute walk. I felt safe the entire walk.
Beds were very comfortable.


Some things others may have an issue with:
Parking is a little tight. I have a compact SUV and had no problem. Someone with a very large car might struggle a bit.
Elevator is very small. But its only 3 stories. If able, take the stairs.
Lighting in the room is not that great
Our room did not have a fridge. The couple we went with had a fridge in a similar room next to us. Our room had a place for one but it was not there. If you think you need a fridge then you might want to request a room that has one.
Hotel is next to Heliport. This did not bother us. You could here helicopters taking off and landing but it was only during daylight hours and I'm sure busier than normal due to Super Bowl.
Walls are thin.


As for some of the others that left negative comments. One said there was no closet. Our room had a closet. One person mentioned homeless people a block away. I did not see any.

For the price we paid, the hotel was great. Clean, updated and a close walk to Super Bowl Village and downtown activities. Very friendly front desk, as well.

My family really enjoyed our stay at this hotel. We came to Indy for my niece's gymnastic event and were happy from the moment we checked in. The staff was very friendly and made sure we had the adjoining rooms we requested. This hotel is right on the edge of downtown and was about $35 cheaper and well within walking distance of most everything. They gave us a map and some take out menus right away, which was nice because we were not familiar with the area. The rooms are nice and modern and the beds were very comfy. The free breakfast was very good with both hot items and pastries to choose from. The parking was also free which is always a bonus. The hotel is about 5 blocks from the convention center where we were going which was a 2 minute drive. They also have a cab service that will take you for about $5. I would recommend this hotel for anyone coming to the area.

The hotel is nicely located with parking, which is good for business travellers. Arrived at 2am, surprisingly, the lobby is still busy with lots of people come and go. But the staff at the desk is great, good service.

The room is ok, shower is not as clean though. Given the price, I expect a better place actually. Noice is an issue though, the walls are thin, you can hear almost everything next door, even walking. Fortunately I arrived at 2am, so I just crashed even with the noise.

They have a simple breakfast ready, nothing much really. But again, the good service from the staff made it enjoyable still.

Reviewed 17 November 2011

Stayed 3 nights in Nov. Hotel was what Hotwire gave us. Free parking was nice to have and hotel was within walking distance of any downtown destination. We had a room with two double beds. It was adequate. The door didn't shut properly. Had to give it a shoulder nudge to get it open and shut. The closet door didn't open or shut properly either, making it a waste of time to use. The tracks on it needed maintenance. I'll be coming back to Indy but won't risk another Hotwire pick of this place.
