I read several reviews about the food quality but decided to take a chance for the Holiday View. My wife and I had leisurely dinner while restaurant made two 360 degree rotations to see all of the Indianapolis sky line in the evening. Our server Beatrice was outstanding and made thoughtful suggestions. My wife's prime rib was excellent. I had... More

What could be more satisfying than sitting back in your chair sipping on your beverage of choice watching the sights of the city go by? The Eagle's Nest does not just offer dinner, it offers an experience to remember. From the glass elevator up to the restaurant to the friendly and attentive server, we enjoyed the atmosphere even before taking... More

Was told immediately upon asking that bar was full. Asked how long of wait and were told 'just full, no waiting.' Looked, tables were open around lounge. Guess just didn't want business. How is it possible to know that at 9p, nobody (including families in the bar area) would leave. Then noticed dinner tables were sparse as well. Inquired about... More

Service was great, Food was good, the bread is delicious! Highly recommend timing your dinner so you can have a bit of daylight time and evening lights as well.

While the atmosphere is still wonderful (who can resist a 360-degree view of the city?), the food and service are only adequate.

My wife & I went for our anniversary. As soon as we stepped off the elevator we started to notice scuff marks on the wall's, dirty glass windows and screws sticking out of the drywall. The chair I was seated at needed maintenance. The food was really bad. The drinks & the view are the only thing worth seeing here!

Very nice views at the rotating restaurant at the top of the Hyatt in downtown Indianapolis. The service was fast and friendly, and the food was quite good. However (and this is a big however) the rotating mechanism seems to need service. The rotation is very slow, and it jerks constantly as it moves, and I honestly felt seasick! Very... More

Oh where do I begin? I'll start at the beginning, service was as if we were at Ponderosa not a 5 star steakhouse. We were told about the bread that "came from a bakery in Chicago" and it never came. We received our food - we ordered a filet and I asked for no mushrooms and it had mushrooms. The... More

We stayed at the Hyatt and decided to have an after dinner cocktail here. A waitress promptly seated us and took the order for our drinks. After finally getting served by another server, she disappeared for the next 45 minutes. We decided not to order a re-fill but to get the bill and go to bed. However, we waited until... More

I was warmly greeted upon my arrival. The bell staff to the front desk and housekeeping staff was superb.
