My husband and I recently visited this hotel, which is near Indianapolis. Below are the Pros/Cons/Tips from our experience:
~Good A/C (we stayed during the hotest days of the year....106 degrees...and the room stayed very cool and comfortable)
~Lots of parking
~Easy to find
~Upon leaving, the front desk person did not ask about our stay. We have found this in other hotels, so it seems to be more common than not. Considering we are reward members and stayed in the hotel for two nights, asking about our stay would have been nice, if not expected.
~Pay-per-view movie channel had technical issues (static, cutting in and out, etc.).
~Shortly after we arrived, we went to the club level room to get some sodas. When we came back to the room, one of the employees was entering our room with his key (even though we had just checked in and had the 'do not disturb' sign on the door. Apparently, he was confused about where he was supposed to be, but we can't help but wonder what would have happened had we not arrived back at the room as he was entering, considering all of our belongings were in the room and unsecured).
~The shower did not drain well and continued filling up as we showered
~While the location is close to the freeway, there are not many options as far as dining. There are several businesses in the area, but not a lot of restaurants nearby.
~Ask for a quiet and/or room on a high floor. We requested this and not only did they place us in a corner, quiet room; they also provided us with club level access.
~Request extra towels and pillows or you may not have enough for your stay if you don't.
As a side note: I noticed a couple of people stating there was a funny odor to the hotel and/or the hotel rooms. I have a pretty keen sense of smell, and I did not notice any unusual or bad odor, nor did my husband.
This is a very nice hotel; however, I guess I expect more out of a Renaissance hotel. This property was just very nice, but it in no way blew us away. This would be a great place to stay if you are in town for a conference or event and just need a nice and comfortable room for the night.
