“We will return!”
Reviewed 11 November 2013

We stayed recently in the residence area of this hotel with another couple. We had a two bedroom; two bath and it was wonderful. Plenty of room for everyone to be comfortable. And having the living room and kitchen space was exactly what we needed to hang out in before and after dinner. We even had a balcony which was really nice to have a drink on and enjoy the views. The bed was comfortable but next time I will bring earplugs because it is close to the train tracks. We had no problem walking to dinner and felt safe. Hotel itself is pretty cool with all the artwork and everything appeared to be clean. We have all agreed to stay here next year for our yearly trip.

pitcrew3,

Hello! Thank you for your positive review of The Alexander. I'm glad to hear the layout and amenities in our Two-Bedroom Suites worked out well for your group. Those are one of my favorite rooms and are great for entertaining or extended stays. I do apologize for the noise that you experienced from the train tracks. In the future, you can always request a room on the opposite end to be farther away from that area. Thank you for staying with us and we look forward to your next visit!

Kind Regards,

Very nice hotel, stayed three nights for business. Great valet folks and generally welcoming. The room was very nice! Laid out well and with tons of space. The bedding was awesome, but the bed was a little too firm for my taste. TV was great with good cable. WiFi worked well and was high speed. The bathroom was really nice and spacious. There were a couple things that weren't super clean (a bit of gunk on a light switch, a hair very high on a shower wall) but it wasn't enough to dampen my experience. We ate there multiple times for business meals and I thought the food was the most lacking thing of the experience, esp for gluten free options. Location is good for downtown activities. Overall, I will be glad to visit here again.

The Alexander is a wonderful "boutique" hotel tucked in the middle of Indianapolis. Friendly, helpful, smiling staff eager to help you and provide recommendations. Clean, comfortable rooms with a modern flair. Excellent dining and cocktails. Breakfast buffet at The Market Table is outstanding.

Having been displaced from our home due to a plumbing disaster, we searched for a decent and affordable 2 bedroom extended stay hotel for my family. We were pleasantly surprised to find this at the Alexander. We had a fantastic 2 bedroom suite that was very affordable that we stayed in for 2 weeks. The hotel is really impressive, the suite was very comfortable, the art is very cool, the staff were all super nice and accommodating, Plat 99 is a great bar, and Cerulean is a fantastic restaurant. The only one issue we had was very loud neighbors above us one night. The staff was very responsive when we complained and even gave us a bottle of wine and a cheese plate the next evening for our troubles. Indy has some really decent hotels, but given the choice, I would definitely stay at the Alexander.

I had the honor of attending my god son's wedding recently and I was so amazed with the hotel from the art to the personal greetings by thee employees ( Jessica at front desk), and things only got better! My stay was spectacular! There was a few particular things that set it off for me personally, such as their group of young ladies and gentleman that made it obvious that they loved there jobs. I was greeted by everyone with a smile and a simply "how are you?" When the wedding started there were two young gentleman that stole my heart (Bartenders Mack and justin). They took their jobs to the next level of customer service, although Very busy they made time for each individual. I highly recommend the Alexander hotel and will be telling friends and family about this place! :) Thanks Guys!

I booked this hotel through the marathin website. We wanted to be close to the start line/finish line. There is astounding art interspersed on the walls of the parking garage. Paintings of men painting, very cool! The outside of the hotel is unassuming, almost industrial looking, very clean exterior. Then you walk into a modern lobby, well lit, and your eyes are immediately taken to the colorful lights that are on the landing of the stairs. The check in desk is upstairs, a little confusing, different. The art on the walls is ecclectic, and the staff know what it is and why it's there, impressive. The beds are the most comfortable I have ever experienced in a hotel. We will definately stay there again when in Indianapolis, which is surprisingly asy to get around for a major city.

Room Tip: There was a wedding at thetime of our stay, and we heard a lot of high heels above us. Maybe stay on...

I stay here almost weekly for business. By the way I am treated the entire time, I feel like I am really appreciated. Khadazeau in Guest Services is amazing. She is kind and thoughtful and is genuinely happy to see me! I always ask if she is working that day. Troy is great as well, as is Matthew in Valet. They know me by name. The rooms are top-notch and luxurious. Room service food is always great. The bath items are great quality as well. All around, I feel warmly welcomed every time I go. And Plat 99 has the BEST, most knowledgeable server, Jessie.
