My husband and I spent a nice weekend getaway in downtown Indy in August. First, the location of the hotel is great. It is connected by the skywalk to Circle Centre Mall, the convention center and several other hotels. There are multiple good restaurants within easy walking distance. Lucas Oil Stadium is also very close. Lots of options for things to do are nearby.
We opted to use valet parking. Price is $27/day with unlimited in/out privileges. There apparently is a self parking garage nearby that costs nearly as much without in/out privileges, so we used valet. Only left via car once and car was waiting for us when we got downstairs from our room.
Our check in went without problems. Front desk staff was cordial and efficient. We were in our room within 15 minutes of walking in the front door.
We had a two room suite. Room was a nice size. Living room area had a sofa sleeper, chairs, desk, nice size flat screen as well as a bar and in room snacks. Bedroom was a separate room with french doors between the two rooms. This room was also a nice size with a big screen TV. Bed linens were mostly comfortable-four king sized pillows provided. (See below.)
Bathroom was more along the lines of a Holiday Inn bathroom...okay but not great. There were more bath amenities than Holiday Inn, though.
We had a "romance" package for our reservation which included sparkling wine, truffles and breakfast (included "valentinis.") The sparkling wine and truffles were okay, not great. Breakfast at Severin Bar was very good with an omelet bar, Belgian waffle bar and lots of other options including meats, fresh fruits and cereals. Included valentinis were quite potent....stick with the mimosa.
Check out was quick and efficient; no problems at all.
My only complaint regarding this hotel was a cleaning issue. Our ice bucket had water from a previous guest's melted ice. Honestly, not a big issue as plastic liner was used and a new liner was provided.
Two of the pillows (4 total) had a very bad smell....dirty, oily hair smell. The pillowcases themselves looked fine, but the smell was very strong. Either the pillowcases were not changed between guests or there is a problem with the pillows themselves. We didn't discover the problem until late so didn't call downstairs. We could use the other pillows provided.
Other issue I had was there was a lot of street noise. We were on the 5th floor and had no problem hearing people/cars on the street below. There is also construction right next to the hotel. We didn't have any problems with construction noise over the weekend, but with the noise from normal activities being a problem, I would be concerned about the noise from construction.
Overall, we enjoyed the stay and would stay here again, even with the issues noted.
