This is my first visit back to IU in several years. I've always felt inspired by the beauty of this building during my late hours of study in the South Lounge. Today I was able to relive that inspiration on my first stay at the Biddle Hotel.
I came to this university with the ambition and hopes of being very successful. The Kelly School of Business delivered, as I am now a partner at a big 4 accounting firm. I travel frequently, so my expectations tend to be high. This hotel delivered on every accord. The spacious Antique Suite is a great place to unwind... Many beautiful amenities with a picturesque backdrop of Beck Chapel and the Chemistry building. I'm enjoying the comfy bed, bath robe, and fine bathroom amenities. I have all the necessities including a coffee station, iron, wireless Internet, and fine furnishings that one would find at the Waldorf. Not to mention, incredibly clean. The room service menu is more geared towards sandwiches, but I found them delicious and incredibly reasonable.
This hotel is a tremendous value... I highly recommend it to all business travelers and vacationers alike. Hopefully this visit to the university will prove successful to our recruiting efforts. I'm currently interviewing at the Business school for several positions at our Park Avenue offices in NYC. It's time to pay the experience forward!
