“Central Location is worth a stay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 20, 2014

This is our first stay at the Embassy Downtown. We traveled to Indianapolis for the MotoGP race on 8-10-14. It was easy to find the parking garage and get checked in. The desk attendant was pleasant and helpful. We traveled to the 14th floor and found our room easily.
The room was spacious with a small living area with fridge and wet bar. The sleeping area had another wash sink that was used while someone else was in the bathroom. This made the morning rush easier. The bed was clean and comfortable. The bathroom was small and looked quite dirty. The tub faucet leaked and there were rust stains in the tub. Everything worked well, but just seemed very old.
The hotel staff was friendly and the cleaning staff did a great job making up our room while away.
I would recommend staying at the Embassy Suites Downtown if being in a central location and value is important.
Thanks for a relaxing stay during a busy race weekend. See you next year.

I travel for work so I'm always in hotels. I tried this Embassy Suites downtown because it was close to my client. I think ES used to be the nice place to stay (from a chain perspective) but they are going downhill fast.
Bathrooms needed to be upgraded, tub needs to be reglazed or replaced and minimally an upgrade to carpet if not furnishings as well. Bed was awful. Another disappointing ES stay.

I've been staying at the Downtown Embassy Suites for several years now during the Gen Con gaming convention. I've always gotten great service, the free breakfast is always top notch, and the room is always great to come back to after a day of convention going. I will always recommend this hotel to friends and family!

We paid over $250 for one night stay. We stayed in one of the corner suites (it cost more so I was expecting something nice). The furniture was worn and looked dirty, the shower looked old/dirty and the walls needed cracks filled and new paint. This was a very expensive lesson.

Overall the trip was good but the rooms are in need of updating. The pullout was uncomfortable and at that time the parking garage was under construction making it hard to find parking along with having to pay each day to park

This is not one of the better Embassy Suites. The downtown location is great, just a short walk over a skyway to the big shopping mall. Everything in the downtown area is just a short walk from the hotel, and there are many decent restaurants in the area, including a Weber Grill in the building. The hotel has the large interior courtyard and open view elevators standard for the chain, but you can tell it's been here for quite a while. It really shows its age. The lobby area seems to be from the 1970's, rather depressing. Our KIng Suite had all the normal Embassy Suites amenities, but was rather dark and, once again, shows its age. The room was fine for a one night stay, just not as impressive as most other Embassy Suites we've stayed in. There were two hot tubs in the indoor pool area, neither one of which was working (and the pool area was not very inviting).The front desk staff reminded me of a typical New York City hotel----businesslike and not particularly friendly (no issues here, just not a real friendly check-in process). The free breakfast was fine, with lots of choices and a large area of tables. There is an adjacent parking garage, and the parking fee is about what you expect for a downtown location. The garage also shows its age, and was undergoing major repairs while we were there. Overall, a decent place to stay given the excellent location, but it needs major work to brighten it up and service could be improved.

Room Tip: Rooms higher up have nice city views.

Stayed 6 days for a conference and the first thing you notice is the excellent location. The Embassy suites is ideally located between Monument Circle, the Convention Center and other hotels in the area. The perk is all the unique dining and bar options you have all within minutes. In a word - Fantastic.

Took a cab to the hotel which is about 20 min from IND - good thing too. You'll never find the entrance to the hotel. There is little more than a service road in between buildings that runs to the entrance - if driving, get specific instructions. The hotel itself is a bit dated, but the atrium atmosphere never gets old. The frt desk staff is very helpful, friendly and professional. From arranging limo/taxi service, getting directions, or getting your laundry done, everything is done with a very friendly attitude.

The suites are spacious and clean. Bed was a bit spongy and the temp controls, like some older properties, cannot be adjusted during certain times of the year - be aware! There's nitpicky things like strange odors in the hallway and furniture that needs some TLC. Housekeeping was all over the place. One day they don't come until 3:30pm and others 8:30am. Room service was great and food is above average at Hilton properties, i.e pretty good.

Overall solid place, particularly if you're only using your room for shower and sleep. Dated but great location. Darn good value.
