“Modern, Fresh and Affordable”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2012

We loved staying at this modern, fresh hotel while in Indianapolis for the weekend. My partner is someone who is hard to please and very picky (typically won't "settle" for less than a 4-star hotel) but this one was a winner. I had looked at multiple hotels and was planning to stick to my budget--and the SpringHill Suites was the only one that had everything we wanted. The king-size room had a fabulous layout/great use of space, nice views, huge windows, beautiful bathroom, and a luxurious feeling for an affordable price; we loved everything about it. Plus, the hotel is in a great location near the White River State Park, shopping, museums, the canal...which was all on our want-list.

However, because this is such a family-oriented hotel (which makes sense, because of the suites and the room layouts), there were kids everywhere during our stay. Which is not so much a problem in itself, except they were crawling en masse all over the pool, lobby, and running around the halls, even in the evening. Even so, we still thought the room was romantic and loved our stay. So we would return again and recommend it to friends and couples as well as families. (We thought it was smart how the room had a separate shower/sink area and a separate water closet with another sink.)

Also, though the parking can be relatively expensive, during the warm months there are very reasonable low-cost options nearby. Plus, with complementary Wi-Fi and a hot breakfast, this hotel was absolutely a great value. In fact, because we liked it so much, we almost wanted to keep it our secret. :) But I couldn't resist sharing it with everyone else.

Downtown hotels charge for parking (This hotel garage is $23, and it's in/out privileges) and if you look at comparable garages nearby price is consistent. If you do not want to pay for parking, stay in the suburbs.

There is complimentary breakfast (good selection and variety) and complimentary coffee/tea during certain hours in the day and night so it offers value. Hotel is relatively new so furnishings are nice. The gym is convenient and there is an indoor pool. There are restaurants in this complex (JW, Fairfield, Marriott Courtyard and Springhill) although the Springhill does not have a restaurant, you can order room service at TGI Friday's. You can walk to other places downtown although it's not as central as some other hotels to the Circle Center Mall.

Room Tip: Ask for a view, White River State Park is next to hotel but depends on which side of hotel you get

We had a two queen room and a sofa, desk and frig/micro. The decor in the room is bright. There was a sink and toilet in a tiny room and another sink and tub/shower in a different room with the closet between. I guess if someone had to shower and someone else needed the bathroom, it would be a nice layout but it seems like they could have made a huge bathroom if they had moved the closet to either end. Ha...maybe I should become a motel room designer!
The room overlooked the canal and was very quiet. Beds were firm with lots of pillows.
The breakfast area was large and had hot food, eggs and sausage, as well as the usual items.
The guy at the desk was very helpful and highlighted a map for us. We had a bit of trouble with the printer and the internet was slow.

My wife and I stayed at SpringHill Suites in Waukegan, IL last year and were just blown away by a great hotel and great service. It impressed us enough to ensure that SpringHill was our only choice on a recent trip to Indianapolis. We were not disappointed. The downtown Springhill had everything we expected and more. The location is perfectly situated within walking distance of EVERYTHING downtown, the parking underground was plentiful, the front desk staff were VERY welcoming and friendly, and the hotel and room we were in were extremely clean. The lobby area is very vibrant and contemporary. One of the reasons we love this hotel is the layout of the rooms. For the same price as a regular room elsewhere, you get:

1.) FREE Wi-Fi
2.) a living area with an L-shaped sleeper sofa and lots of throw pillows
3.) a large flat panel tv
4.) a large work desk with sliding smoked glass panes that provides privacy from the sleeping area or opens it up
5.) a refrigerator and microwave oven in its own little bar area
6.) a toilet with wash sink compartment that is separate from the main bathroom and shower
7.) lots of pillows
8.) extra bedding in the closet for the sleeper sofa
9.) a very comfortable bed

On top of all this, you get free breakfast which included scrambled eggs and sausage (not simply muffins and juice). The same day we checked out, I received an email from the front desk manager ensuring our stay was great and asking me to let him know if there was any aspect of our stay that was unsatisfactory. The answer is NO, our stay was perfect. Anytime we go out of town, we will look for a SpringHill Suites to stay in first and foremost. I HIGHLY recommend this hotel.

I recently stayed at this hotel when I was in town for the Indianapolis Monumental Marathon. It was easy walking distance to the start of the race and the expo at the Convention Center. You can even walk through indoor walkways to get to the Convention Center. I got a very good price through a AAA rate. Overall, I loved almost everything about this hotel. The room itself was by far the best part; it was absolutely beautiful and very classy. I was in a king room and was very impressed by the cleanliness, decor, bathrooms, etc. There was one bathroom with a toilet and sink and another bathroom with a larger sink and shower. The sitting area was a nice size. The entire room just felt fresh and clean. I asked for a quiet area and they put me near the ice machine, which I though would be a problem but it wasn't. The pool is small and I didn't use it. No hot tub. :( The lobby area is nice and relaxing. They let me check in early which was a nice bonus. The only bad part about my stay is that they forgot to give me back my driver's license upon check-in and when I called about it late the next day they told me they didn't have it. Then they called back 5 minutes later to say they had it; the woman tried to explain why she had been given misinformation. It was a small incident but with potentially major consequences since I was flying out early the next day. I should have been more careful to get my license back but they should have been more forthcoming about what happened. You would think that as soon as they saw my license on their counter they would have called my room! I would definitely stay there again but would make sure I got my license back!

Room Tip: A higher floor seemed to be quiet.

The hotel is new with a modern design and in a great location. Very nice to be able to walk through JW Marriott and use the skywalk to get numerous places without going outside. Unfortunately, the hotel was at capacity two of the nights we stayed and it appeared they were understaffed, especially for breakfast. Both Saturday and Sunday mornings the breakfast line was long because of a bad design, only one place for plates, one toaster and everything is crammed together in one line. Two staff were working hard to keep up, but still kept running out of plates, utensils, and food. Monday morning was much less busy and was a much better experience. We planned on using the pool, but it's very small and was always busy so we didn't. We would stay there again, but if they were full I'd find someplace else.
