Bottom Line

The four-pearl JW Marriott Indianapolis is a behemoth property in the middle of downtown Indiana. With a covered walkway to the convention center and the Lucas Oil Stadium, the hotel is filled with conventioneers and upscale travelers. There are 1,005 rooms with flat-screen TVs and coffeemakers, though they lack free Wi-Fi and free safes. Perks here mostly focused on meeting services, but there are an indoor pool, gym, and valet parking as well. American and Italian restaurants, 24-hour room service, and a Starbucks coffee shop round out the dining options. For something more intimate, try The Alexander, a boutique hotel with two massage studios, free Wi-Fi, and rooms with mini-fridges.

Oyster Hotel Review

Scene

Massive, upscale hotel with a business atmosphere and stylish decor

JW Marriott Indianapolis is a large hotel that draws conventioneers and upscale travelers with its downtown location and covered and connected walkway to the Indiana Convention Center. However, it’s also good for anyone looking for an upscale experience and don’t have a tight budget, as there are fees for amenities like safes, Wi-Fi, parking, and breakfast. Decor for the 33-story building is modern and trendy with great views of downtown Indianapolis from rooms and other public spaces. There’s a definite modern take on floral designs throughout the property in the form of colorful floral carpets and subtle floral art pieces on the walls. The restaurants and bars are especially trendy. High Velocity has an upscale sports bar vibe with vintage chairs, low lighting, and lots of flat-screen TVs. Osteria Pronto has wood floors, iron chandeliers, and black and tan chairs. There have been some past complaints about reservation issues and overbooking.
