“Great Hotel with Location and Charm”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 July 2012

We arrvied for a one nighter in Indianapolis and were pleasantly surprised at the charm of this historic hotel and its proximity to many cool things in town. Great staff, large rooms, and all of the old school charm on the outside, with great modern amenities inside. Nice restaurant and great little convenience pantry with food and drink choices.

Room Tip: stay just a bit away from the elevators

Pleasant stay. Close to everything downtown. Nice Brazilian restaurant just 2 blocks away. Room has vintage look to it and hotel staff are friendly and very good. Really nice stay just before the race.

Thanks for taking the time to write! We are big fans of Fogo de Chao here (that nice little Brazilian restaurant). Hope to see you soon!

Great location, really nice hotel but we were very disappointed when we got to our room and tried to connect to the internet only to be told by the Front Desk that in our room 1518 there was no connection due to the fact that it's an old hotel and the narrow hallways and location of our room meant no internet. We were advised to come down to reception or go to the elevator lobby on our floor with our laptop to get connection and then we could take our computer back to the room and the connection would follow us!!!!! Obviously this does not work as our room was a dead zone!!
We were not offered a discount for our inconvenience.
Apart from this annoyance, the hotel was lovely and as I said a great location to restaurants and Starbucks but there are plenty of other hotels to choose from that I'm sure have internet in ALL their rooms.

Room Tip: Don't book Room 1518. Definitely ask when you book for a room with Internet connection. The Fron...

We are glad you enjoyed your stay other than the fluke with the internet. Aparrently there are two rooms on the 15th floor with are affected by this anamoly. We are working on getting another Wireless Access Point or signal booster to place in that area to reduce or eliminate this issue. We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience during your stay and hope you will give us another shot in the future.

Booked this hotel online and it is one of the most charming Hilton properties I've ever stayed in. Property is a vintage building right in the middle of the great downtown attractions for walking and dining. Check out Libertine which is just a block or two away for phenomenal cocktails and food. Try the waffle with chicken liver pate with your drinks, you can crawl back to your great room at the Hilton Garden Inn.

Hotel offers Hillton HHonors members very generous hospitality, I was impressed!

We stayed in Indianapolis for one night for a show we were going to. We wanted to walk to the Murat Theater, instead of having to worry about parking and fees. On all the maps I looked at, this hotel was the closest and even the cheapest, so it made sense to stay here. There was some kind of children's festival going on when we arrived, so we decided to do valet parking to make it easier on ourselves. The valets were really nice and didn't seem to expect a tip, although we tipped every time. Check in was easy and really fast. We had a nice room on the 6th floor. Everything is updated and it's a good size. We were the second furthest room away from the elevators and that was nice, so traffic was low. The bed was okay at first, but once we figured out how to adjust the firmness, we were good to go. I guess we didn't listen to the clerk who checked us in when she explained to us nor did we see the display on how to work the beds until we checked out. :) Anyway, the location is great. You have to walk a couple of blocks to get to a lot of different restaurants, but there are some nearby. We enjoyed walking and felt safe, which was a BIG concern for me. For those looking to walk downtown and are kind of weary, I am the type of person who would rather drive just in case something were to happen on foot, but I felt pretty safe walking.

I stayed at this hotel with 3 family members the night before we participated in the Indy Mini-Marathon. It is an excellent location, right off the Circle in downtown Indy, within easy walking distance to restaurants and entertainment, as well as our starting line. Our room was quite large so it was easy for 4 people to spread out. Fridge and microwave were handy and the beds (which have adjustments for firmness) were comfortable. The service was excellent. They allowed a late check-out, something other hotels will not do after the mini, and were always prompt in responding to our requests. We will definitely stay here again and recommend it to others.

I am told that John Dillinger once robbed this place when it was a bank. It is certainly historical and projects an image out of the 1930s. The hotel is clean and comfortable with good service and an excellent breakfast. The hosts will make you feel at home in a better than average Hilton Garden Inn.
There are two issues: There are only four 20-minute unloading parking places in front and you have to fight the cabbies and then the valet parkers to get one, even for a moment. The valet people shamelessly hustle tips and will demand that you move if they are not paid off. Self parking (recommended) is in a garage just 100 feet south on the west side of Pennsylvania Ave. You can pull a ticket there and then have it validated at the hotel. The second issue is that the blackout curtains are an inch too short now that new windows are installed. This means east-facing rooms learn about sunrise about 10 seconds after it happens.

Room Tip: Avoid the east side during summer
