What a cool place to stay. This is a refurbished train station and is done in a masterful way. They actually have 8 full length train cars with two rooms per train car. The hotel was nice enough to give me key and allowed me on my own to check out a "train" room. They are very cool and unlike anything I have ever seen before. I did not have one of these rooms, rather I had a standard hotel room which was quite average. My biggest complaint with my room is that there was no safe in the room. Other than that it was fine. The hotel is the absolute best possible place you could stay if you're attending a sporting event at the Lucas Oil Center. They have a connecting walkway which drops you right at the foot of the stadium. I was there to see the NCAA bball tourney and it was a fabulous location. I recommend this hotel because of its proximity to the stadium and because of the novel design and use of real train cars - it is very cool. I also had room service two nights and a Sunday Easter buffet - all of which was excellent.
