4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2013

Stayed here for four days while attending a conference. Would recommend for a conference because the it is one of three or four Marriott properties in a row that share a garage and allow someone to travel from one hotel to another without going outside; one can also go from the J.W. Marriott by skywalk to the Conference Center. Parking was easy with the parking garage next to the building, although I did not like that one could not use a stairwell to go directly to the hotel. If one wants to use a stairwell, they have to go outside and reenter the hotels through the front entrances.

Only blip in trip was the front desk did not seem to have a record of my call asking for early check in, so we had to wait until normal check in time. Granted, we asked for a room on a lower floor, so perhaps the wait was for one of those rooms to be cleaned.

Lobby included a snack bar area on one end, next to the front desk, and a mini-restaurant at the other end with sandwiches, coffee, etc.

Room was nice, albeit a bit smaller than we expected. It included a fridge and sofa. Bed was comfortable and the shower was especially nice.

Free wireless was nice but whenever we both tried to use it, it would drop one of us.

Disappointed in the limited options for recycling. There was only one recycling receptacle in the lobby and no recycling bins in the rooms. Did make use of the options to reuse sheets and towels.

The hotel is very clean. The hotel is more like a complex... with JW Marriott, SpringHill Suites, The Courtyard and possibly another brand sharing a huge underground parking garage. They all seem to be linked together. Easy check-in... professional but not always friendly staff. The self parking and valet use the same parking garage. We felt safe. It was well lit and believe it had camera's as well. I self parked and Im betting it was easier as well as being a little cheaper. Although I think it is ridiculous to pay to park with a hotel you are staying in but what can you do?
With the exception of hearing an infant cry next door and call to front desk for more coffee that never materialized, it was a good stay and wouldnt hesitate to stay again. Luckily, I found a cleaning lady with coffee on her cart in the hallway!

Excellent one night stay at the Courtyard Indy Downtown. Typical modern Courtyard amenities. Very comfortable bed and super clean room. Located at the edge of downtown (about 10 minute walk to the Monument Circle. Friendly service (valet and front desk). Nothing wrong with this Courtyard. You should enjoy your stay there as well!

Great place to stay. Staff is friendly, rooms were clean, well-decorated, clean and modern. Did not get to use the pool or fitness rooms, but they looked good also. Hotel lobby nice and modern, inviting. Had cookies and coffee. Food service was good also and bar was always attentive to the guests needs.

I stayed here for the first time while in town for the NTEA Work Truck Show earlier this month and I was pleasantly surprised! In previous years, I've stayed at the JW Marriott and the Indianapolis Marriott Downtown and I must say this hotel was spectacular! Very modern, clean, chic and conveinent to restaurants, shopping and of course to the convention center. The staff here was very friendly and I of course enjoyed having TGI Fridays as an option for room service. I will definetly keep this hotel in mind for any future travel to Indianapolis.

I stayed here for the first time last year for The Work Truck Show, then stayed here again for the same show a couple of weeks ago. I am glad to see my first excellent experience was not a fluke. 5 stars again! Love this place and, as before, the staff have a huge input on my rating.

Excellent stay - very quiet, comfortable, everything you expect from a Marriott. Connects directly to the Convention Center. Only trouble I had was in not getting a requested wake-up call (I wonder about the room that got it instead!). Would stay here again.

Room Tip: Look for AAA specials and the like to bring down price
