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

The Columbia Club provides the opportunity for a peek at old world position and power, a bit of history, and exclusivity. Add in the feeling of a really special boutique hotel, and the combination provides a great experience. All this being said, the real essential element is the staff, Whether Jay, the concierge is giving you that special tour of... More

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
