Bottom Line

This upscale hotel is a modern, stylishly decorated property peppered with original artwork. Conveniently situated near the Lucas Oil Stadium and Indiana Convention Center, it makes a good base for business and leisure travelers alike. The 209 guest rooms are stylishly adorned and well equipped with flat-screen TVs, Keurig coffeemakers, mini-fridges, and Wi-Fi, while suites add living areas and kitchens. One of the highlights here is the chic mixology lounge, plus there's a breakfast room, fitness center, meeting/event space, and a cute shop selling snacks and artsy knickknacks -- but the property lacks a pool or spa. For something with more features, check out JW Marriott Indianapolis, which has a pool, two restaurants, and a Starbucks -- but Wi-Fi incurs a fee.

Scene

Upscale hotel with stylish, artsy interiors

This modern upscale hotel features stylish interiors peppered with chic furniture and lots of artwork, from large murals to sculptures, paintings, and other artistic installations. The light and airy lobby is illuminated by walls of windows and offers comfortables sofas, armchairs, and trendy mid-century modern chairs to sink into. The plethora of artwork and a swirl of brightly colored lamps suspended from the ceiling add vibrancy to mostly soft neutral hues. The glass lamps continue into the adjoining Plat 99 Mixology Lounge, where decorative tilework covers the floors and walls, making for a visual feast. All spaces throughout this property are inviting, laced with art and chic touches, and the upscale atmosphere and convenient location attract both business and leisure travelers alike. Extended stays are also welcome and catered to here, with spacious suites that are equipped with both living areas and kitchens.
