We travelled to Indianapolis to attend Gen Con. This is our second visit to the city so we knew we wanted to stay downtown. We were initially thrilled to be able to secure a downtown location, but the location is the ONLY thing this "hotel" has going for it. Upon arrival, we were greeted by incredibly friendly, helpful valets (Steven... More

Our family celebrated a wedding last night and we thoroughly enjoyed it! Service, food, and atmosphere were unbelievable. The ballroom in the top floor was just perfect for the event. The Presidential Suite 502 for the after party has a great bat and lovely view of Monument Circle.

We loved staying at the Columbia Club. You can't beat the character of the place, especially the Crystal Terrace with fantastic view of Monument Circle. If you are a history buff or love early 20th century archtitecture this is the place for you. Just an overall great atmosphere. Service was very good and the rooms were nicely updated. Great location... More

I was a little worried about this booking based upon past reviews that said some rooms were not renovated, and others from the usual assorted guest who seem not to like old hotels, plus a dress code that seemed to be all wrong for our 4th of July weekend. Not to worry all turned out great. The room (#804) was... More

As much as I want to give this a 5 star, I can't. I love historical buildings and can overlook a lot of period appropriate quirks, but this hotel needs a once over. I felt the housekeeping was fair and the rooms were average. Had trouble with plugs for charging phones. Most of the lamps and such were plugged in... More

Poor experience. Older downtown hotel, historic building with great character. Common areas are nice. Wedding was fantastic. Food was good. We went through 4 rooms and finally upgraded to a suite. First room had huge issue with mold. The ceiling had black mold all around the air vent and the vent itself was covered in mold and dirt. Next they... More

Really Beautiful Hotel in excellent location! We're from SoCal, so not used to hotels requiring collars on men, not allowing spaghetti straps on women, jeans, shorts or ball caps- (it's not super high-end) -thus the 4 stars- We were there for the Indy500 on a week that was over 90 degrees! BUT staff was super nice and the TOILETTRIES are... More

As the guest of a friend for an overnight stay at The Columbia Club, Indianapolis, I found the facility and services to be excellent. It had been years since my visit to this club for dining, but this was my first for lodging. To my delight the Columbia Club has kept pace with the times while staying consistent with its... More

If you like the "boys" clubs in Mad Men (not mid-century..think dark oak) then you will like this place. The downstairs is beautiful but the rooms are a bit dated. However, I booked through Delta and got a very reasonable price for downtown Indianapolis. It is right by lots of restaurants and if you are a runner it is not... More

I get that this is an old school hotel with tons of character. What I don't get is why they charge what they do but have not updated anything since the 70s. The common areas were beautiful. The bathroom was dirty and old. The fitness center oddly split into two rooms in the basement, the one with cardio was no... More
