I have come to depend on this site more and more before I book any hotels for my trips. So when planning a trip to Indianapolis for the first time I came here first to look for the best place to stay. Location and price were my first concerns.
There were several good hotels to choose from but this one seemed to be the best all around choice. We were visiting friends, plus attending a event at the Fairgrounds and this seemed to fill the bill.
We were planning on checking in a little later than normal so I called ahead that day to make sure that wouldn't be a problem. The gentleman who answered assured me that they would be holding our room for us. Later When ready to check in we found the hotel easily and within close proximity to our friends home.
When greeted at the desk at check in everything was pre-set for us and check in went very quickly. The lobby was very nice, and it seemed the building was rather new, I'm thinking probably no more than 5-7 years old.
We were placed on the fourth floor, but there was a convienent elevator just down the hallway from the front desk. I liked that we were higher up as it seemed quieter, even with our room being to the front of the building.
The room far exceeded our expectations. Very nicely appointed, with large closet, complete with iron, ironing board, wash basket and safe. The bathroom was adequate and very clean with the usual soap, body cream, shampoo, etc. Next to the closet was a microwave and small refrigerator, with coffee maker and supplies, two bottles of water and some nut bars.
The room was laid out more like a small apartment with very good use of space. A large and comfortable King size bed was close to the window with flat screen TV and Blu ray player. The front part of the room closest to the bath had a longe chair with ottoman, small end table with magazines and writing desk with online hookup there. A notebook gave you all the info needed to access their Internet system.
Decorations were done very tastefully with many pillows on the bed and a down comforter. I liked the idea they didn't use a bedspread, as those can be seldom washed and I always fold those back completely and put out of the way.
Their TV offered a assortment of options: games, recent movies, childrens programing, and your standard TV. The movies were a little pricey ($10.99) so we opted not to view them.
There was breakfast offered in the morning but we opted not to use it. A also added bonus was that they also accepted our AARP discount so the cost to stay here was very good.
The following morning it was easy to access the Interstate and also gas up before getting on the road to head for home. For a one night stay I was sorry I wasn't going to stay longer.
This is the second Wyndham hotel we have stayed at in a month and they certainly are making "believers" out of us.
Make sure you book through their Wyndham Internet site..you might just get a better deal.

I have to tell you that I am impressed by the breadth and depth of your review. It is very typical for a guest to point out one or two amenities that pleased them, but you were able to describe nearly all of the items that we provide in one guest room. You were able to describe this in such eloquent detail that I will likely extrapolate on your descriptions in new sales materials.
Whenever you need a room in Indianapolis, email me (firstname.lastname@example.org) in advance and I will set up everything for you.
