“Nice Hotel in downtown”
Reviewed 15 June 2014 via mobile

The Alexander is a very nice downtown hotel located right near the basketball arena and about 6 blocks from football dome. The hotels very modern and has artwork all over the place. There's a nice restaurant /bar on the main level along with another bar on the first floor. Service that I encountered was excellent and helpful. Parking is either valet or self parking in the garage which cost $20 per night. Rooms were about normal size and everything updated. I was in town for a conference at the convention center which was about a ten minute walk at a good pace.

It was our first visit to Indianapolis and we could not of pick a better hotel!
The art installations were amazing! The rooms were large and every detail was well thought out. Every staff member was very friendly and engaging. This hotel is also silver Leed certified. It is environmentally friendly and luxurious.
The location is also very central to walk anywhere downtown. I highly recommend you look no further and book your stay at the Alexander.

This hotel is beautifully built and immaculately clean. It is a short walk to all of the restaurants, stores, and sports venues. We were in town for the Big 10 Men's Basketball tournament and could not have picked a better place to stay.

My cousin and I met in Indianapolis for this year's Indy 500 and he selected The Alexander for the weekend. I'll admit that this hotel was a bit outside my normal array of options, its not a Hilton or Marriott branded hotel and I didn't see that they were making any effort to be one of those chains. Unique art was everywhere and the staff was engaged in making sure everyone had a great time. I noted a few of our favorite drivers were staying in the hotel and enjoying the same breakfasts we were and must admit that not seeking autographs was a test of my willpower (pun intended!). The weekend was great and while we are not ones to attend every year, we will certainly seek out a room here if we find ourselves back in Indy. What a stay!

Green Features: The staff pointed out many things that helped them achieve LEED status and I was happy to see that none of it really impacted our stay. Some green efforts make a hotel a little less fun.

This hotel blew me away. It has definitely differentiated itself from the market by being both extremely art-conscious and LEED-friendly. The service was fantastic, and the design of the premises, from the various sculptures and murals to the lighting, was inspiring - a truly unique experience.
