skormama, Thank you for your feedback! We are pleased that you enjoyed your time with us and you enjoyed the newly renovated rooms. I apologize for the noise you experienced, being off of a busy downtown street, it seems we have some traffic and stadium noise at inconvenient times and we are working on ways to alleviate some of that if we can. We do hope you will come back and see us again.

We could not believe this awesome location when we checked in. Walking to the stadium (to watch the Ohio State Buckeyes win the BIG 10 Championship) was great! The hotel was VERY nice and everything ran smoothly - despite being sold out and crawling with Buckeyes. We came in

Take a look in the hole and you'll get an idea how they handle room repairs - there is trash stuffed into the hole to try to keep the shower head from moving around, then the cover wasn't sealed to the wall. I mentioned the need for repair to the front desk and someone came up and just pushed the cover up the pipe to the wall.
Not much to say
Warm comforters, soft pillows, and room temperature control.
Very Pristine bathroom. Body Works amenities
Are you with walking distance to IUPUI? Thank you!
I wouldn't think so. It's right across from the Lucas Oil Stadium, so it would be a pretty long walk.

Yes, they are still renovating that I saw March 1,2018. However, I did not have it interrupt my comfort during my overnight visit. The workers were pleasant and cordial and about their work. More to admire than to find fault.

"My 3rd floor room was on the side of the hotel facing Tavern On South and had a nice open view."
"Hotel is tucked between two streets and across from the stadium, so not quiet."
"Odd numbered rooms face Lucas Oil Stadium- home of the Colts"
