We were in Indy for a convention at the downtown convention center and have stayed at several other hotels in close proximity over the years. This was our first time at Staybridge and if the rate is good we'd do it again.
The decor is very appealing and looks brand new. They have "extras" like on Thursday night when we were there from 4:40-7:30 a free taco/nacho bar with pop and drinks too. We enjoyed the bowl of cut fruit for breakfast (cantaloupe, pineapple, honeydew etc...) which is a cut above the fruit (an apple or banana if you're lucky) you see at most complimentary breakfasts.
If you want to bring any of your own food this hotel rocks as it has a close to "full" kitchen. If we brought the kids with this would be our choice for sure for this reason alone. It has a good size fridge, stove top and microwave. As far as I could see it looked pretty furnished with cups, silverware, pans etc... though we didn't use them.
The only down side to this kitchen and the room was the dueling noise from the refrigerator and the air conditioner the first night. Didn't notice it the second night since after working all day I think we were to tired to care! The only other "odd" thing we noticed was that when you left the bathroom door closed it would smell like smoke in the bathroom. We don't smoke so I don't know if the neighbors were and it was drifting through the vent or what. Didn't really bother us but was strange. I was going to mention it when we left but there was no one at the desk right then so I didn't bother.
The reason I say I would return but not in the winter is that it's a pleasant but slightly far walk to the convention center. We are vendors so we go in the back by the loading docks and it works pretty well but if it was a cold winter day I wouldn't want to walk it. Our convention was in Feb. one year and we stayed next door to this hotel at the Comfort Suites and it was a COLD walk! We did feel totally safe on the walk but it was daylight. If you were coming or going after dark you might not depending on your comfort level.
