“Modern hotel but reasonable price.”
Reviewed August 12, 2014

Stayed here during B1G basketball tournament. Get access to BankersLife and downtown spots. The staff is top notch and attentive to our every need. I highly recommend staying here if you need a place while in downtown Indy.

Room Tip: For more room, ask for corner suite.

A truly unique hotel in an up and coming section of downtown Indy. Loved the art throughout the hotel. Incredibly attentive and friendly staff. Very graciously took care of an issue we had with housekeeping. Highly recommend this property as they are truly on top of their game. Location is a bit out of the way from the restaurants and such but a brisk block will bring you to where the action is.

My boyfriend surprised me with a night away at The Alexander for our anniversary this past weekend, and it exceeded our expectations on all regards. Entering the hotel and seeing beautiful works of art by Alyson Shotz, Paul Villinski, and other contemporary artists, I knew it was going to be a great night. We walked into the perfectly designed lobby and checked in with our dog Yoda, and were given the cutest little doggie goodie bag for him. The people at the hotel are so kind and went out of their way to make our stay special. Our room was simple but chic with a comfortable king sized bed and a bright and airy bathroom (loved the rain shower).

We visited Plat 99 Mixology Lounge for cocktails and a cheese board and absolutely loved the ambiance. The complimentary truffle popcorn was to die for! I love the fact the hotel has complimentary bikes available for guests (as Indy is such a bikeable city). For dinner we went to Mesh on Mass Ave which was fabulous as always. In the morning we ordered room service which was delivered promptly and professionally. All in all it was a great getaway and I look forward to being able to visit The Alexander again!

Sounds like a great night on the town! What a nice surprise. Thank you for choosing The Alexander for such a special occasion. I am glad to hear that you enjoyed the ambiance and were able to really check out some of the great artwork we have throughout the property. The Paul Villinski piece is one of my personal favorites. Hopefully Yoda enjoyed his goodie bag as well! We certainly look forward to serving you again in the future.

Stayed here because it was close to Lucas Oil Stadium for the DCI 2104 World Championships. I had some trouble with early check-in which started the trip off only so-so, but the facilities and staff are great.

I didn't get a chance to have a meal there but I've heard the Cerulean is fantastic. The staff is overall friendly but I had to call up 3 times to get extra soap and shampoo. Also, housecleaning accidentally came in when we were there but it wasn't their fault as someone had apparently stolen our "Not now" placard from our door.

The gym is kept cool and clean and is pretty decent for a hotel of this size. The lobby always has fruit essence water and snacks. The bar is nice and friendly and has popcorn with truffle salt at night.

The location is a bit weird as it's about 6 blocks from downtown, but definitely walkable and great if you're going to a Pacers or Colts game.

Modern, comfortable, filled with art along with all the amenities to make for a first class stay. Hotel is on the southeast corner of downtown, in a more industrial area that is being renovated. Rooms are spacious, bed firm but very comfortable, piles of down pillows, huge flat-screen TV with HD channels, modern, tasteful furnishings, lights on dimmers, super-modern bathroom with glass-walled, tiled shower. Nice touches like art in all the common areas, every day hot-weather refreshments in the lobby like fruit juice. The staff could not have been more friendly or accommodating. Everyone from the front desk to housekeeping staff greeted me each time I walked by and asked how I was enjoying my stay. Outstanding property, completely enjoyable, highly recommended.

I was happy to choose this hotel. My room was one of the Deluxe California King room on the 6th floor. The big widow with a view of the city was amazing. The beds are very comfortable and this hotel is beauty inside and out. Amazing work of art everywhere. Love it!!!
