As we drove up to the Marriott in Indy, we noticed that there was plenty of self parking spaces available so we did not do valet, which is probably a good thing, because there wasn’t anyone except the girl behind the desk present. Oh well. Check in was fine, but some things were noticeably missing. How about a Starbucks? That would have been nice after a 5 hour drive, but they did have lemonade. Oh and they did offer coffee in a press pot, and a bar! A bar? I would have rather had a Starbucks! I would have taken a glass of lemonade with me to my room, but unfortunately I had to wheel my luggage—no free hands. No bellman either.
We were lucky enough to get a room several floors up with a view of a small pond and a distant view of the city. We had a nice sized balcony but alas--no chairs!
I was happy to see an iron and ironing board, a coffee maker (however, very cheap food service grade coffee) and a bath robe and a flat screen TV. The large bed was nice and comfy with nice linens. It’s too bad they opted out for the luxury towels in the bathroom—they were horribly scratchy!
Also, there wasn’t a make-up mirror, a mini bar or a safe in the room.
Hummmm, makes one wonder, with an upscale mall across the street, don’t you think that a female guest might visit the hotel and want some of these essential amenities? It’s not all men who travel nowadays!
To be fair, it is a nice hotel, they just forgot to cater to an upscale clientele. Maybe the Hyatt next time???
