Never been to Indy before (and guessing locals don't call it Indy, since I am from Southern California and locals don't call it SoCal).
I was here for a convention. Booked this hotel for our group as we were sharing rooms and this place offered larger ones.
Impressive lobby. Very modern look, but very approachable.
The lobby was FULL of partiers when I checked in. I know that isn't typical, but they were a bit smashed and laughing and yelling. Made it hard to hear much of anything other than them.
Friendly staff: they truly go out of their way to help. Whenever a hotel adds "Let us know if there is anything you need," I am impressed.
For the first time in a long time I had to use my room card to access the elevator, but I only saw it as added security. It's a bit confusing because this hotel, the Courtyard and another Marriott property are all connected (and I mean literally!) My bank of elevators was BEFORE the ones for the other Marriott. So yes, a tad confusing.
My room had two queen beds. Interesting modern room, with frosted sliding pocket doors on the powder room (toilet and sink) and shower room (sink and shower). The latter door didn't stay shut unless I propped my shoe over the stopper.
Beds very cozy and I have a terrible back.
Ipod dock on the alarm clock was a nice addition.
Here are my nit picks:
The vent above my closet was a speaker for the room next door. The first night all I could hear was them yelling and laughing until 1 AM. I had an early alarm, so this wasn't a great start.
Water pressure: Not enough. Enough said.
WiFi a bit laggy.
NOTE: If you are attending a conference this hotel has to be at least a .7 mile walk (indoors) to the exhibit hall. For me this was too far, as I made several back and forth trips in a day, but I'm not convinced there was a closer hotel. The Conference Center is attached to several hotels, malls, restaurants, and this can be a little confusing. *Happily you pass a Starbucks on the way to the Convention Center.
Caveats: I didn't eat any of the breakfasts while I was there, as I am frankly not a breakfast eater.
Cab ride to and from airport weirdly varied from $30-40. I've been in a lot of cities and a five dollar difference is no biggie. Ten bucks and I wonder....
