Residence Inn Indianapolis Downtown on the Canal
Ranked #52 of 186 Hotels in Indianapolis
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 31 August 2011

I will define the stay at "Homely" since it is a non-formal hotel with basic services in place. The rooms are spacious with full kitchen.

What makes this hotel my favourite is the location. This is situated along side the river. On a sunny day, people having jog, families with cycle-rickshaws and pedal boats, with ducks floating in the water make it a very soothing and lively scence

Flip side - not all the staff memebers of the hotel are cooperative and sensitive theier patrons but good part is you have a very good ear in the form of its General Manager (Vicki) and she is all there to help whatever best way can be done

Proximity to the downtown shopping area, Lucas stadium, Childern's museum and the Zoo (in fact we walked to the zoo from the hotel, along the canal) makes it better to stay

My husband and I stayed here on the drive to relocate to Colorado. Marriott is pet friendly and we had our two cats with us. The Non -refundable fee for the pets for one night was $100.
We had just stayed in a Kimpton Hotel in our old hometown for four nights while we moved out of our old home. Kimpton charges no fee whatsoever for pets.
Other Marriotts charge fees and often adjust them depending on the length of your stay.
As I write this we are now in CO waiting to move into our new home and staying in another Marriott that is charging $75 for a 5 night stay.
Otherwise, the Indianapolis property was nice...not great. It was dated but very clean and the staff was friendly.

The front desk had to be the NICEST people I have delt with when traveling. They were happy to move our family down to the first floor because of the kids and were even nice enough to give our little one a pair of little swimmers so he could go in the pool! They gave us a map of the city and things to do. The kids LOVED the fact that they could go down to the canal and feed the ducks too.
The rooms are average size and you cannot get a king bed or 2 queens, but you can get a queen bed with a pull out, which was fine. Its worth being able to park there and walk to pretty much anywhere in the area. Rooms are clean, breakfast was great, no complaints about anything here!
Without a doubt, we will stay there when we come into town for events!

We stayed here for a business trip. Most of our activities took place at the J.W. Marriot and the Convention Center, which were both an easy 10-minute walk from the hotel. Check-in was friendly, and she gave us great advice on some local restaurants to try. Our room was located on the ground level, right on the canal. My only complaint was that there was a lot of noise outside of our room, from people walking along the canal. The room was a 2-bedroom suite, which was great for three of us. The rooms were a little dated (no HDTV, etc) but everything was clean and neat. Overall, it was a great place to stay in downtown Indy.

Room Tip: Canal side of hotel is noisy

What a shock (and disappointment) to have the Marriott name attached to this property. On the plus side, the staff couldn't be nicer...courteous, accommodating and willing. The rooms, however, left much to be desired. Paper thin walls allowed me to hear the occupants walking above and talking in the room next to ours. Those same thin walls also allowed me to know when they were using the bathroom. Not good!!! Also, when the fan/blower kicked in for the AC, it did so with a bang each time. This is not conducive to a good night's sleep. The kitchen area was hopelessly outdated and made me not want to even use the kitchen. The TVs are not flat screen or hi def. It's hard to go backwards on this when you are used to viewing hi def. The TV in the bedroom was basically impossible to watch. This facility is desperately in need of an upgrade. Shame on the Marriott for even letting it get to such a point. For what I paid for my room, it was a rip-off.

First, the front desk staff go out of their way to make an extended stay like being at home away from home. Cherie, Annette, John and Connie greet you personally to make you feel welcome and go out of their way to assure your comfort during your stay. A simple task such as giving extended stay guests a laundry basket ( cost less than $5 ) instead of those unwieldy plastic bags to carry one's dirty clothes to the laundry room make the stay enjoyable. Second, the hotel is on a canal. Joggers, walkers, bikers etc can be seen every day and in better weather you will see paddle wheel boats, kayaks and an occasional gondola on the water. 2 seater and 4 seater bikes are available in season for rent. A trip around the canal is approx. 3 miles. There are several museums, condos and
a college campus for Indiana U and Purdue U on the canal. You are within walking distance of Lucas Oil Stadium, Conseco Fieldhouse, Indiana Repertory Theater and downtown Indy including Circle Center Mall . Free Breakfast is served daily at the hotel and free meals are served several evenings for those too tired to venture out to numerous restaurants also within walking distance.Swimming pool, hot tub and exercise room are also on the premises. I just completed my fourth stay at the hotel and hope to return in the future.

Simple touches make this hotel stand out. Friendly check in with a welcoming note from management for starters. A problem with the front gate so they eliminate the nightly parking charge when you know most would still insist on it. Coffee at 5 a.m. when breakfast officially starts at 6. (I've literally had other hotel dim the lights in the lobby until the official breakfast time and refuse to turn them on.).
This hotel gets it. Treat people like they're at home.
Now, for the big things. The room was clean and the bed comfy. The social hour had decent options and plenty of them. The hotel also is centrally located for restaurants and bars and even has a canal walk running behind the property, which is ideal for a little jog or brisk walk.
