We stayed at this historic facility this month while at a conference 2 blocks away. We were referred by the concierge from one of the larger chain hotels because they were fully booked. The Columbia Club has a wonderful old world feel and is well located downtown. Our room on the 7th floor was small and in need of renovation... More

Not a first class hotel, but the architecture and old styling is wonderful. Exceptional service and the food is excellent. 8th or 9th floor rooms are remodeled. Definitely get a room with a view of monument circle.

Beginners, the lobby is spectacular with the huge fireplace and, what, 45 foot ceilings? So comfortable to read the paper or catch up on email. 3 people can stand in the fireplace. The dining room experience was exceptional. Wonderful service, expert staff. And they are ladies and gentlemen. Every meal was wonderful! I had the rack of lamb and was... More

As a recent member of the club, you must ask for a renovated room or suite. The club has undergone extensive renovation in its infrastructure, but could only afford to upgrade about three floors, so ask for an upgraded room or suite because they are beautiful, especially those facing the Circle. Dining has been spotty unfortunately because the Harrison Room... More

Before I explain everything wrong with this "hotel" I will say that the staff is nice and helpful and the location is central. HOWEVER...it's run down once you get to your actual room. 1.The room had a door that adjoined to another room. There was about a 1.5 in gap between that door and the floor. I could hear the... More

The location was great, however the hotel was just not my style. It is a historic hotel but it just seemed old. My room smelled like my grandma's basement. I had to stay here due to the hotel offering a reduced rate for a conference I was attending. I wondered if anyone else stayed at the hotel as I only... More

True to history, the main rooms were absolutely stunning and lovingly kept up. The sleeping rooms were tight, dated, and a little yucky. I was at a conference, so I barely spent any time in my room. It met my needs. The room service was quite reasonable, as was the restaurant. The service was impeccable, except for the wake up... More

Location, location, location. And then add a historic building with an original interior, and you get real character. But maybe it's just me, I don't like a hotel to tell me how to dress. Being an old hotel, the rooms are small and the a/c noisy. Then there's the price. Three blocks away, I can have a suite for $100... More

Paper thin walls, told to take off ball cap, told I couldn't bring a bottle of wine in, not told 20% tip was already added when I tipped at the bar (yes that's a 40% tip) and to top it off I had $190 of charges on the bill that we're not mine. While the management has acknowledged that fact,... More

I was in Indianapolis recently for a social event. Even though I didn't stay at Columbia Club I ended up spending time there because most my friends were guests. The Club is absolutely beautiful, classic and historic. I spend several times at the bar which is the focus of this review. The bar is not huge but very nice and... More
