We were not actually needing to stay near the airport - but had a night in Indianapolis on the road trip - and loyalty points to use. We chose the Radisson as a name we trust.
Glad we chose this one - and it may not be central to Downtown - but equidistant from the speedway and the city centre. We arrived about 4:30pm on the Sunday 8th September. The ladies on the front desk were busy on the phones and checking rooms were ready for arriving guests.
We didn't have to wait long for Tracy on the front desk to tend to us. Despite being busy she was able to allocate our room - with the upgrade we requested - and happy to pay the additional as a "freebie" room as far as we were concerned.
We took the lift up to the room with our cases - and the room faced the back of the hotel as if facing the airport - but we did NOT hear a plane at all throughout our stay.
The room was MASSIVE! While my husband was showering I measured it with my UK Size 6 feet .... and it was 31 of my feet from one end of the room to the other and much the same from door to facing wall.... We had 2 arm chairs, a flat screen TV - fridge, coffee and tea making facilities, nice and clean --- and the wonderful NUMBER bed - which kept us amused throughout the stay ... trying to adjust it just right for both of us - and laughing hysterically when one of us was on 15 (super squidgy) and the other was lying a foot higher at 100. Sorry if we woke the neighbours with our laughter.
This bed is great for a good nights sleep - whether you like it squidgy or like concrete!
The bathroom was lacking a hairdryer - and on our way out for the evening I thanked Tracy for giving us a fab room and mentioned the missing hair dryer. On our return the hairdryer was in the bathroom. Brilliant service.
We had a few drinks in the bar before bedtime as there was a special on - and it's a DRY state on a Sunday - so you cannot purchase beer or Liquor from the usual outlets (as we discovered in a nearby gas station). Despite this - they didn't overcharge for the beer - and there were some good special offers on too. Barman was friendly and we watched the Colts Game that was on the TV at the time.
Wifi in the room - free and worked all the time.
Check out was swift and painless.
Cannot fault this hotel at all - hence the 5 rating. Staff were great, room was all that we wanted and more for the night, the sleep quality was good too, no noise heard from inside or outside the room, and it was worth cashing in our points for.
