“Best hotel experience--worth the premium cost!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2012

My husband and I traveled to Indy for a concert at Conseco Fieldhouse and this hotel was the best location for us, as our goal was to not do any driving while there. It is almost directly off of the interstate and many attractions are easily within walking distance (including Lucas Oil Stadium, Conseco Fieldhouse, the Convention Center), as are several restaurants, bars, and shopping.

The hotel lobby and the rooms are gorgeous, clean and the decor is unique and beautiful. The bed was FANTASTIC! This hotel was converted from a shoe warehouse and has stunning original exposed beams and brick walls. Customer service was great and all of our needs were met. The weekend complimentary breakfast was fantastic--best I've ever had at a hotel and included Belgian waffles, cheese eggs, sausages, pastries, bagels, cereals, fruit salad, etc and fantastic coffees!

Also, we stayed there on St. Patrick's Day weekend and there was an Irish pub directly across the street--during the day, we heard a little bit of music but nothing that our own TV didn't drown out. And at night, even with partying going on, our room was quiet! (Security side note: the hotel locks its doors at night and has security stationed so it's a safe, secure place to stay, as well!)

The cost of the room was a little more expensive than we are used to paying but we would do it again in a heartbeat--it was such a fantastic experience. Don't hesitate to make your reservation here, you won't be sorry.

A note on parking if you aren't familiar with the area--in general, the hotels don't have dedicated parking. Homewood offers valet parking for $20+, but there are lots of other parking options in the area. We were pleased with the nearby Union Station Self Parking Garage. They offer 24-hour parking, which was the cheapest in the area and was literally a few buildings away from Homewood Suites.

My husband and I decided to stay here for a little weekend getaway and we had an amazing time! We had planned to spend a lot of our time walking around the city, but frigid temperatures kept us inside a lot of the time and we did not mind a bit. The rooms are warm and inviting, and the decor is absolutely beautiful. The high ceilings and wooden beams in the room definitely cast a unique feel. The history behind the building is also very interesting. The staff is very accommodating, particularly the girl that works overnight. I would recommend this hotel to anyone and will definitely be staying again in the near future. Something else that is noteworthy is the pool. I've been to several hotels claiming to have a heated pools and it ended up not to be so, but theirs is perfect! Also, if you choose this hotel definitely go with the Valet! It is worth every penny.

This Homewood Suites has a great style and elegance to it. It's a old building that was remodeled and so you have high ceilings (with ceiling fans) and very unique room designs with plenty of the original brick on the walls. The room sizes are great and it's always nice to have the full kitchen when you are staying for a week and attending a convention (GenCon).

Homewood Suites have always been nice, comfortable, and offered great amenities. The breakfast was great with a full assortment of hot plate items, cereal, baked goods, and more.

Everything was great and we didn't have any issues during our stay. The only thing we did not like was that the Elevators were painfully slow. Sometimes it could take up to 4-5 minutes to get an elevator. We learned that the rear elevator was typically much more responsive (since less people use it apparently) and so that helped after we discovered it.

We were lucky enough to stay at the Homewood Suites during Super Bowl weekend. The hotel is clean, new and bright. The beds were very comfortable and the hotel is within walking distance to Lucas Oil Stadium and all that downtown Indy has offer.

Room Tip: Ask for a room away from S Merridian for less street noise.

I make a few trips per year to Indianapolis and staying in hotels for a week or more at a time quickly becomes wearing. The Homewood Suites is a nice alternative, with spacious rooms (including cooking facilities if you need them, I didn't) and a simple but good light evening buffet meal weeknights.

There is a small gym and a pool, however the pool was closed for most of the time I was there.

Staff are generally pleasant, although the standard varies - some of the poorer ones could learn a lot from the better ones.

The beds are very comfortable - the best I've ever found in a hotel. This alone would make it worth returning!

Room Tip: Rooms facing the street can be a little noisy/bright, drapes don't close fully.
