“Superb Boutique Hotel - Not to be Missed”
Reviewed 28 April 2014

From the artwork, the hotel design, the great staff and guest rooms, this hotel is a terrific find. I had the option to stay closer to the convention center in the big box chain hotels but chose this independent property instead. Nicely located - close to the center of town but far enough away to avoid the tourist traffic. Two stand-outs - from check in to check out, the staff were super-helpful and friendly. The guest-rooms were complete, with small touches (like good reading lights near bed) that other hotel chains should copy. Full kitchen equipment. Top shelf coffee for machine. I made reservations for two associates and they share my high opinion of this hotel. Kudos to the staff and management.

Room Tip: 5th (top) floor great view, especially if you are in odd numbers, facing front of hotel. Saw wedding...

Green Features: I trust that the management is very conscious of the need for such practices.

Brian12154,

Thank you so much for choosing The Alexander during your visit to Indianapolis. We understand that you have many choices when traveling and it is that type of loyalty that will keep our brand successful. It was great to read that you enjoyed the reading lights and the view from your room. Bonus! Wedding! Thank you for bringing business to The Alexander, we hope to see you again soon.

This is a brand new hotel with a modern theme. Very interesting art work throughout the hotel. The room was comfortable and clean with very nice amenities. The rooms had wood-like flooring with rugs or carpet in key areas for comfort. The restaurant and bar seemed pretty popular as it was crowded when we arrived on a Saturday night. The location is good, not great. It was on the South fringe of downtown. A bit of a walk for most downtown activities, except for the Pacers. Banker's Life Field House was a short walk. Lucas Oil Stadium wasn't that far either. Parking is at a premium ($29 for valet, $25 for self-park). Free street parking is available on the weekends if you're timing is good and there are no events. Overall, this is a great hotel, especially if you can book it through a 3rd party website at a discount, or get it at a convention rate. It would be a bit expensive otherwise.

Jim46012,

Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review on Trip Advisor. We love to hear that people enjoyed the overall decor, especially the carpet touches in the room. That is something that we added after opening from our guests feedback. As far as the rate, feel free to try our weekend discounts and also Indiana Residents rate. We have some great deals depending on the events that are going on in the downtown area. Thank you again, and we hope to see you back soon!

Check in was exceptional, room was great, great bar -- front desk people wonderful. The average rating is to due to their pet policy - they are a pet friendly hotel but don't require owners to leave cell number -- therefore barking dog next time until 3am was a terrible terrible nuisance. Due to this we rate it average and will check out all hotel policies on pet policy in the future.

Thank you so much for your review. It was great tor read that you enjoyed the staff and bar service at the hotel. I do however, sincerely apologize for the disturbance that you encountered with the pet in a room near you. We do require that our guests leave a phone number to contact them, and I am researching why this was not addressed in this case. I can assure you this is not typical of our service, and I do hope you give us another chance to show you great experience with us at The Alexander. Please feel free to contact me directly to discuss. I would be happy to speak with you further about your stay.

Hotel was very inviting with a very accommodating staff, I recommend this hotel if visiting the downtown Indianapolis area. Dinning experience was a little to fancy formy tast, it would be more enjoyable if there was some more commonfood on the dining menu.

If you're into art (I mean installations and framed pieces throughout the hotel, even the parking garage had Banksy style art graffiti), then you'll love The Alexander. The touches in the room were modern and had every amenity we could think of without even having to ask for it. The view was beautiful and my fiance' and I LOVED the shower! Tyler was amazing to work with, he really went above and beyond to make sure our anniversary was a memorable one. If for no other reason than to work with him again, we'll definitely be back. Thanks for a memorable stay and a highlight to our anniversary weekend!

Room Tip: The corner rooms are the best ones, but they all have a nice view.

Green Features: The lights only cut on if you have your room key inserted. I've never experienced that, but in terms of being eco-friendly, it was a nice touch.

We stayed for an expo located in lucas oil stadium, 4 block walking only. Great rooms . Very modern and very clean. Breaksfast buffet with a big selection of plates. For dining I recomend the bluebeard restaurant , just a 10 min walk from the alexander and you're in one of the best restaurants in indi.

Thank you so much for staying with us and for a great 5 Star review on TripAdvisor. We understand that you have many choices of hotels when traveling to Indy, and we appreciate you choosing The Alexander for your expo. I am glad to see that you were able to get out and explore the Fountain Square area as well which is just a short distance from us. It is such a great area of downtown. Thanks again, and we hope to see you back!

This hotel was great. My wife and I wanted a weekend getaway so we decided to attend the Pacers/ Hawks playoff game. The hotel was in the perfect location. We were in walking distance of everything. The hotel was very clean and the morning buffet was great.

We certainly appreciate you choosing The Alexander for your weekend getaway and for taking the time to review us on TripAdvisor. We are a great location for attending an event at Banker's Life Fieldhouse. I guess depending on who you were rooting for, it was a great game. I preferred the second game of the series! Thank you for being a guest and we look forward to seeing you again in the future.
