“Clean and Comfortable”
Reviewed August 1, 2013

Basic hotel that is clean and comfortable. Breakfast is basic and the same every morning we were there. There is room service from TGI Fridays with a minimum of 10.00 per order. So if you get a craving for dessert at night you need to order more food. The only downside was coffee in the lobby was not always filled and they do not offer hot chocolate. Location is convient to downtown Indy.

This hotel was a great location for activities downtown Indianapolis. TGIF located in the lobby, an outside bar on the patio. Walking distance to shops downtown, tons of restaurants, museum, baseball field, and probably Lucas Oil Stadium. An easy commute to the airport. Breakfast in the lobby each morning and late night snacks in the pantry available.

Stayed with friends in a suite. Great location near main attractions. Used AAA discount and saved a fair amount. Arrived and they did not have my reservations but no problem, they had a room for us but had to wait 1 hour before it was ready. Comfortable room with nice view. As usual they are clean and attractive. Breakfast was OK but they ran out of eggs. Fairfield Inns are always a safe bet to stay.

What a nice place. Great location if you need to be downtown. Near many of Indy's best attractions. Clean, clean, clean. Comfortable beds. Staff very friendly and helpful. Breakfast area large enough so one doesn't feel squished into a small space. Better then average selection of food: hot eggs and hot sausage. Nice selection of all breakfast items.
We would stay here again in a heartbeat. Great value for the money.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the front of the building and on a higher floor. We were on the 5th floor on t...

We were in Indy for a Indians ball game and 4th of July fireworks.
All went well until it was time to leave. The card they gave us to get out of the garage did not work well at all! I was not the only one having trouble with the card, as I saw another car having the same problem as in the card not opening the gate. I have had this problem before and have seen other people have the same problem. For a fee of $20.00 to park you would think it would not be such a problem?

This hotel exceeded my expectations. It is a newer hotel in a great location close to the state museum, zoo, Imax, Victory Field, the mall and NCAA, etc. The rooms are really clean and modern. The room rate was fantastic. We chose valet parking as we were going to walk everywhere. This hotel is linked to the other Marriott hotels and you can walk inside through the convention centre to the mall. However, I would not recommend walking inside unless the weather was not cooperating. We did the walk inside and it took forever with a lot of escalators, etc. It is much faster and easier to walk outside which we did in a quarter of the time. Front desk staff are a bit slow but I think staff may have been new. The breakfast is decent with a good selection of items. The only downside to the hotel is that we booked a room with double beds without realizing it. When you're not used to sleeping in a double bed, it is quite a size adjustment trying to get the family into them. Also there is no safe, fridge or microwave in the room and valet parking is $26 a night. However, it is free in and out with the valet parking if you want to drive somewhere. I would definitely stay again.

Stayed for a conference at this hotel. Really convenient that the hotel is connected to the conference center thru the JW Marriott. However, it is a long walk. About 15 minutes, taking multiple elevators, bridges and even thru the underground parking garage. Rooms are small, but clean and we did not stay long there anyways. Breakfast was very decent, but service seemed to be overwhelmed by the number of people that wanted breakfast, because the refill of the breakfast options was slow and the garbage was overflowing. The coffee was kind of so-so. Beds were nice and the shower was great.
