The aesthetics of this hotel proved to be all that the reviews promised...modern, eclectic, hip, elegant. The service, which many reviewers commented was excellent and outstanding, was simply adequate during our recent brief visit.
The rates are comparable to most of the other downtown hotels but this hotel is so different and refreshing. The rooms were very clean, spacious, relaxing. Furnishings and fixtures are modern and attractive. The mattress was not as comfortable as some I have experienced in our travels but would be right on for someone who likes a firmer bed. We didn't check out the restaurant or room service but they had interesting choices, although the food was overpriced as per usual with room service menus. We did stop in Plat 99 for a drink in the afternoon; service was good and the decor and views of downtown are amazing but weren't impressed with a visit later in the evening.
Overall, we were very impressed with this hotel. Liked the location...in an area of downtown that is convenient to get to everything but not right in the thick of the touristy blocks. Indianapolis is quite ghetto but this hotel was nothing but classy.
