This 33-floor behemoth is a downtown landmark, one of five Marriotts connected to the Indiana Convention Center. Guest rooms sport mid-level luxuries like 40″ LCD televisions and marble bathrooms, but the greatest perk is the floor-to-ceiling windows with superstar views over the city, especially from the upper floors. Dine in-house at one of two restaurants, the Tuscan-inspired Osteria Pronto or the lively High Velocity sports bar, then work off the calories at the well-equipped fitness center, which also includes an indoor pool and whirlpool.
In the Area
Along with the steak house at the hotel, the immediate area is rife with temples to carnivorism. One of the most popular beef bastions is St Elmo’s, which has been firing up award-winning steaks since 1902. For a slightly different take on the beast, try one of the burgers at Bru, whose meat is sourced from Creekstone Farms, the same purveyor used by legendary New York chefs Mario Batali and Danny Meyer. Finally, it’s time to watch animals get fed at the acclaimed Indiana Zoo, renowned for its animal conservation and breeding programs.
How to Get There
The hotel is very clean and the service is Everything was great. The beds were super comfortable and we had a wonderful view from the 21st floor. This is definitely the hotel we will stay at when we come to Indy!
The overall experience was great! Staff very friendly and helpful. The room comfortable and clean. The restaurant food really tasty! BUT....the internet connectivity was frustrating in that it would drop the connection from within the room to elsewhere in the hotel (like the lounge or restaurant) and wasn't at all helpful in needing to be connected to address work commitments. The WIFI experienced in other Marriott hotels is more effective and seamless.
This hotel was amazing. We had such a great experience from the moment we walked through the door to check in to the time we checked out. Our view was amazing and the beds were so comfortable. The gym was great to work out in too!
