“Cool Place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2013

This is a new hotel located blocks from Lucas Stadium. Very cool place and located near lots of great restaurants. Very cool artwork! Loved it. It's got a young hip vibe. We stayed here for three nights and it is a super place to stay!

Cool, modern, nicely appointed hotel. Attentive, helpful staff. Interesting art everywhere. Very nice and new. Nespresso coffee makers in every room. Nice desk area and robes. Very comfortable bedding and great reading lights and other lighting.

Room Tip: I think they are all pretty good but mine did look out over rooftops so not good views.

My stay at The Alexander was fantastic. The hotel is located very near to Eli Lilly and Company and within walking distance of the Colts and Pacers stadium/arena as well as to downtown Indianapolis. The staff is very friendly and helpful. I received a "Hello" everywhere I went. The sleeping room was very comfortable with a large bathroom and free WiFi. The hotel has ambiance, decor, and artwork throughout with an Indianapolis, Indiana theme. Each piece has a story. There is a relaxing bar area, Plat 99, off the main lobby. Plus, there are multiple restaurants in the hotel with excellent atmosphere and food. If you are looking to have a meeting, The Alexander offers very funcitional meeting space with high tech capabilities, including virtual meetings. If you are coming to Indianapolis, I highly recommend The Alexander as it is a MUST STAY.

My first visit to the Alexander was amazing. The architecture, art, ambiance, staff, location and amenities were the best I have seen in Indianapolis. I have yet to book another hotel in the area with such class, sophistication, and fantastic restaurants and lounges. If you are there for lunch, you must hit either the hotel lounge or Cerulean on the first floor. Both have a great menu and the best drinks in town (mixology type spirits). I was amazed at the amount of time and effort it appeared that was spent on the finishes, technology and art decor within the hotel. Where I see most hotels try to cut corners on certain finishes, the Alexander did not. The staff was very accommodating and knowledgeable about the surrounding area attractions and "what to do" on a Wednesday night. I would definitely recommend the Alexander to anyone who will be staying in the Indianapolis area. Even if you are not staying overnight, you should check out the hotel and make sure to grab a bite to eat at one of the on-site restaurants.

I couldn't be more pleased with my recent stay at The Alexander. The hotel was clean and modern. I liked the attention to detail and the art displays. Definitely upscale. The staff was friendly and accomodating. The room was spacious with a great view of Lucas Oil stadium. Had a unique cocktail at Plat 99 (with the helpful suggestion of our server), then headed to Cerulean for another cocktail as well as a wide varitey of specialty appetizers. The location was well within walking distance to other downtown Indy locations, even on a cold February night. I would definitely recommend The Alexander.

I stayed at the Alexander recently for three nights. The hotel staff was excellent in every way, the room beautiful, spacious, and quiet. This is a brand new hotel, decorated exquisitely, very nice restaurant, and free WiFi, unusual for a 4-star. Rate was very competitive with much lower rated downtown hotels. The only thing missing was a store to buy incidentals but apparently that is coming.

Recent had the opportunity to stay at the Alexander Indy, it was a very newly opened hotel. it is fantastic in every respect. the staff in reception could not do enough to help me and the staff in the bar off reception was brilliant as was the tapas style food.. I recomend the Beef panini and also the pork belly slider and the scallops!
I have stayed in many places in the US and this place is one of the best I have stayed in yet. It is walking distance to the convention centre and just over the road to Lucas Stadium.
I didnt eat in the main restaurant but had breakfast there, once again the service was great as was the omlettes and maple saucages.
I have never filled in hotel questionaires or reviews on trip advisor but the quality of this place wwarraanted this!
I will be looking for more Alexander properties when I travel in the US again.
Quite surprise to read some of the other review, guess because it is so new they are still working the bugs out of it???

Room Tip: this is a fairly quiet part of town so all of the rooms would be OK
