We stayed at this hotel from 10/8/2005 to 10/14/2005, room 529, the time we booking we asked for a room on the high floors and we've got it. My husband, our teenager daughter and I travelled for our first time to Indianapolis to attend the Lord of the Rings Exhibition at the Indiana State Museum(excellent! I also recommend this)so we had a long trip from our home in Lima,Peru (we're peruvian) that's why was pleasant for us arriving at the hotel and find a friendly and courteous staff who helped us with a lot of information regard the city as transportation, restaurants,etc. They also gave us a map mark with the main attractions and tips for our stayed,and explained us how to get to the Indiana State Museum(just walk)
This hotel is very nice and clean, room good size, the Lobby and dining-room are warmest and comfortable, friendly staff, they provide a free continental breakfast buffet which is pretty good!, no restaurant in the hotel just a little store inside with crackers, snacks, ice-creams,etc,vending and ice-machines on the 1st. and 5th floor, Free internet on the lobby,fitness room, indoor heated pool.The hotel is a walking distance of the downtown,the RCA Dome,the Victory Field,etc. The downtown is 10 minutes walking and you have so much to do and visit there: the Monument Circle, the Circle Center mall, the Mac Donalds/Subways/Pizzas inside the Hyatt hotel,many other restaurants and shoppings.
TRANSPORTATION: In the downtown you can get on the public bus and go to the Indy Motor Speedway,or the Washington Square Mall,etc.just check its website, this is a cheaper way to get to many places outside the downtown, just be sure to CHECK the schedules. You have also the "Blue bus Line" which is free and rides you around the downtown every 10 minutes.
Nearest the hotel just 2 blocks away is the Greyhound and Amtrak station, the Indiana State Museum 5 blocks away, etc. A taxi from the hotel to the downtown is $5.=.
We had enjoyed the LOTR Exhibition at the Indiana State Museum,too, it was excellent!, and also the Museum staff...what a nice and wonderful people! The Museum is surrounded by beautiful landscapes because It is located on the gorgeous and big White River State Park,where is too much to do! The free Blue Bus Line stops at the Museum so you can ride it or just walk to the downtown.
Overall, we enjoyed so much Indy and our stayed at the Best Western City Centre Hotel & Suites was really good...by the way: the hotel is not noisy at all you can relax in your room or having a good conversation or reading a book in the nice lobby. We got a very reasonable price booking through the www.indy.org (search for the LOTR hotels).Soon I'll be posting some pictures. We would like to come back maybe some day...
