“Business Stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2014 via mobile

This is one of my favorites when staying in Indy. Location is convenient related to the office and nicely surrounded by shops and restaurants.
The hotel itself is pretty a Marriott classical. Good size rooms with all standard amenities. An indoor pool and a gym (although a pretty small one).
The difference with Marriott is the people. Great smiles great service, which is why I keep returning.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2014

I have stayed in this hotel, a number of times, when on business in Indianapolis. The service was very good at the front desk, with the bellman, and in the concierge lounge. Special mention should be made of Margie, the evening attendant in the concierge lounge, who is excellent - she is friendly, knows guests by name, and goes out of her way to be helpful.

The hotel itself, and the guest rooms, are very old and dated. On this trip, on my first night, it was also very loud. The housekeepers seemed to be cleaning the room next door to mine for hours - they slammed the door, vacuumed, slammed the door again, vacuumed again. I finally did call the front desk about it - but they never returned the call. Additionally, they did seem to clean the rooms until quite late - and were often still cleaning when I returned to the hotel after work in the evenings. And, my room really didn't feel as thought it had been cleaned well - trash wasn't disposed of, the faucets in the bathroom didn't appear to have been cleaned, bedding was wrinkled.

I felt, on this visit, as though the quality of the hotel had deteriorated.

We stay almost exclusively in properties owned by Marriott both for pleasure travel and business.

This entire property needs to be completely overhauled as it is very dated. The housekeeping also left much to desired. Our trash was never emptied during our 4 night stay and our towels were not replaced but one time. The housekeeper simply pulled up the comforter to straighten the bed. The toiletries were also never replaced. One small bar of soap does not suffice in a room housing 4 people. The linens were dingy and one of the bed pillows was more than a little stained. Not up to Marriott standards at all.

I stay at this hotel every three weeks for business. I have done this for the last 4 years. The quality of this hotel has gone down. The rooms are in dire need of an update. The carpeting is old, the doors don't close entirely. On my last visit, the toilet didn't flush and the air conditioner did not come on. Also on this visit, there was no water in the gym and two of three treadmills were not working properly. Although i will continue to stay here because of the location to my business, this hotel is entirely overpriced.

I go to the Northern Indy/Carmel area frequently for work, and this place is usually my hotel of choice. The location is probably what sets this hotel apart to an extent, as it is close to most of the restaurants and bars in the area, as well as the various offices. Also, the staff here are some of the friendliest and most willing to help of just about any hotel I've ever stayed at.

The rooms here are fairly standard Marriott rooms that you would expect to see outside of a downtown area. The rooms and lobby could use an update. but it's not too bad.

The lobby and bar area aren't anything special, but if you're staying here for business they'll likely fit your needs. If you're an elite member and have access to the concierge lounge, that's worth checking out as it stacks up well to comparable hotels, and the staff up there are also very friendly and helpful.

One thing that did happen on my most recent stay was that there was a leak in the bathroom when I woke up in the morning. I was in the bedroom area when I heard a crash, and the entire bathroom ceiling had caved in, rendering the bathroom unusable. The staff quickly found me a new room to finish getting ready, and apologized profusely, doing their best to handle a difficult situation. I also got an email subsequently from the hotel manager apologizing for the incident. Basically, I thought they did a pretty good job with a tough situation (although I will say that if it were me, I might've offered a discount on the room for all the trouble).

All in all, great staff at a good location for the area. Will definitely continue to stay here on my trips.

You are so close to major restaurant chains like Sullivan's, Champions, and PF Chang. They are all walking distance on a nice day, under half a mile.
The drive to the airport is not close since I dropped off two other salesmen as I left our meeting. It is around 30 minutes. Great hotel with a really nice concierge lounge for Gold and Platinum members of Marriott.

Room Tip: The lake side view is very nice. You can see a very long running track that circles the lake and pas...

Was in town for a few days for a funeral, this was a nice and comfortable place to stay. The pool was very nice, and although I didn't use it, the gym was one of the better ones that I've seen in a hotel. The staff is all very helpful and friendly, and the bar/restaurant has some great food. Only complaint is having to pay extra for Internet, seems odd that luxury hotels still charge for that.
