Another convention to attended but this time in Indianapolis. After driving for a few days my wife and I were ready for some comfort and rest. We arrived Wednesday for a Convention at the Marriott Indianapolis Downtown at 8AM. The hotel quickly accommodated us and allowed us to check in early (this is not a guarantee but was nice of them).
We entered the room to find it large and with a pleasant view. As this convention brings over 35k people into town we knew this weekend would be busy and packed. We were pleased that the hotel and its staff did not disappoint in the 4 nights we spent there. They were busy at all hours for the 4 days but kept up with our requests and our needs. The cleaning staff was a pleasure and never skipped our room!
Due to the convention the room was on the expensive side but was worth it as the location is across the street from the convention center. I have given this hotel 4 for value only due to its location.
TIP: There are bridges that join the hotel to the convention center so that not matter the heat or snow walking to the convention will be comfortable.
The pub / eatery in the hotel called Champions has many televisions so that you do not miss your games and had a decent selection of beer. While our convention was in town they even had a special brew on tap with a fun name.
The hotel also has a convenience store next to the reception counter. This was an easy and fast way to find drinks and a bit of food while working and attending a convention.
Lastly there is a indoor pool and spa which was wonderful to sit in at night. The warm water and bubbles always help with all the convention walking!
