I needed to stay one night in Indy recently. I did not want to pay a ton of money for a one night stay, but I also wanted a nice hotel. I found the Downtown Sheraton, and it was great. The value was outstanding. The lobby was very nice and welcoming. The front desk staff was very professional and courteous. The room itself was comfortable and clean. Everything was just fine. Are there better hotels out there? Sure, and I've stayed at all of them. But for the price and value, you cannot beat this location. The location is prime too, just off Monument Circle.
What really made my stay even better was the meal at Alexanders Bar and Grill. My original plan was to go to one of the "famous" steakhouses in the area. I had been to one before, but wanted to give it a second try. Due to the weather that night, I decided to stay at the hotel and eat at the restaurant. I was very pleased with my decision. The shrimp appetizer was perfect (and I know seafood too). I also had the crab cake, and it was absolutely delicious. Being a native of the Gulf Coast, I was very pleased with the seafood. I had the New York strip, and it was one of the best I've had. It was wonderful. My two gin martinis were made perfect, and not bruised (many bartenders do not know how to make a martinis, but this one did!). I had a couple glasses of Louis Martini Cabernet, and was also very pleased with the price, and quality.
Parts of the hotel are under renovation, but not a big problem.
Next time in Indy, my location is already decided: the Downtown Sheraton.
