I live in the Indianapolis area and have used this hotel for weekend nights out downtown, and also used it for one of my first visits to Indy before moving here from the East Coast.
My wife and I have had really great stays. The rooms are not overly luxurious but very nice and still feel very new (hotel is pretty new, opened perhaps 10-12 months before the NFL Super Bowl in Indy).
Views from upper floors are terrific. Service is attentive. Lobby area, bars and restaurants are well appointed and often crowded with visitors on weekends.
The location of the Conrad might be better, in terms of walking to shopping and restaurants, but the JW is only 3-4 blocks away and located next to museums, Victory Field (home of AAA Indianapolis Indians) and White River State Park.
As with most hotels they soak you for the small stuff: $15 for wifi, $35 for parking - which seem ridiculous with room rates that can dip below $200 during certain periods.
We really like this place and can strongly recommend it to locals or visitors.
