The Alexander, I thought was going to trump the J.W. Marriott and other hotels in Indy, but sadly, it wasn't special enough.
The positive is decor. It feels like an art gallery.
The issue is you have to go up the stairs or wait for ONE elevator to go to the lobby. People want to check in fast.
Other major issue was the overall staff attitude. Lisa in the Marketplace dining was the best, but others were not. Amber in front desk was very good. Very professional, cared about the customer.
Rooms were very spacious, clean, but the cleaning lady didn't clean the bathroom very good.
The drawers were dusty and dirty, and my clothes had to be cleaned again when I got home.
With so many options in Indy, I'll pass on the Alexander. Sadly, I didn't feel the quality and service that other hotels provided in the past.
