We had a trade show in Indianapolis to attend, so I used Priceline to see if we could get a deal and boy we did! We ended up with the Westin - which couldn't have been more perfect as they have a skywalk to the convention center where our event was being held. We were so pleased with getting the Westin for the price we paid as the location was perfect and our stays with Westin in the past have always been terrific. This time was no exception though we were not in the room as much as we typically are.
Check in was 3 pm, but we were allowed to check in 1 1/2 hours early. Very nice man at the front desk. We parked in the garage next to the hotel - very convenient but pricy - $24 for 24 hours. There are garages that are less expensive for overnight, but you will have to walk a few blocks. We paid for the convenience and it was worth it.
Our room was on the 12th floor looking west toward the Marriott. Room 1203 was nicely appointed, two double beds, chair, desk, tv, minibar (don't even touch anything unless you want to be charged for it!), hair dryer, safe, iron and board, lighted vanity mirror. Bathroom was nice, a bit small, and a bit too dark for our taste. But there are two mirrors in the main part of the room, so other than shaving, anything else can be done out there in the daylight. Only other negative was the drain in our tub - very slow. Water was up to my ankles when I finished with my shower, not a deal breaker, but an inconvenience.
The best part of the room - the beds. Oh my goodness, they are exactly what they call them: HEAVENLY! My Alex enjoyed one of the best nights sleep he has ever had away from home! They are firm and soft at the same time, and are just perfect.
The location of the hotel to all that's fun in downtown Indy makes it a perfect place to stay. Two blocks from the City Centre mall, lots of restaurants right down the street, a half block from the Capitol building, across the street from the Indiana Convention Center and the RCA Dome . . . it's all right at your fingertips! We also found the best breakfast place about 6 blocks away - LePeep on the corner of Illinois and New York streets. The best pancakes in all of Indy!
Check out was a breeze since we had no charges to the room. A few steps to the elevator which took us to the parking garage and we were on our way in less than 5 minutes from front desk to leaving the garage. Very convenient.
We would stay there again in a heartbeat, especially if we were going to any event in downtown Indy.
