Indianapolis is not a mere city, rather it is a microcosm of America. From motor sports to war memorials, from basketball to Fortune 500 companies, this city has it all. It is both culturally and economically important, and so it surely deserves a visit. The good news here is that there is no dearth of affordable and quality hotels in this city. The following five boutique hotels are good examples of this.
Omni Severin Hotel
Omni Severin Hotel is more than 100 years old. The classical architecture of this hotel is a fitting reminder of the rich cultural heritage of Indianapolis. However, those looking for a comfortable stay should not be disappointed either, as every room is furnished with the best possible amenities of 21st century. The suites here are more spacious than usual and come with private balconies. Additional services include a concierge, valet parking, and shoeshine. It is also not very far from major attractions such as Bankers Life Fieldhouse, Crackers Comedy Club, and Lucas Oil Stadium. Also, in case you fail to travel for some reasons, do not worry. They do not charge anything for cancellations.
Sybaris Pool Suites Indianapolis
As the name suggests, Sybaris Pool Suites Indianapolis offers a luxurious and idyllic stay. In fact, it is considered the topmost specialty hotel in the city. Everyone gets a private swimming pool here, and some of the premium suites even have waterfalls. It has been built slightly away from the city centre to provide a serene and peaceful atmosphere. Still, you can find several attractions near the hotel such as Traders Point Creamery, Fanimation Antique Fan Museum, and Zionsville Farmer Market.
The Columbia Club
The Columbia Club is another beautiful historical building turned into a hotel. It comes with some of the finest luxuries you would find in the city, including a personal trainer at the fitness centre, golf privileges, and car wash. It is located right at the heart of the monument circle, surrounded by most of the major war monuments that dot the city. Once you are done with the monuments, you can complete the history tour with a visit to the Colonel Eli Lilly Civil War Museum, which is not very far either.
Stone Soup Inn
For a cheap yet charming and homely stay, opt for Stone Soup Inn. The rooms are furnished with Victorian-era artifacts, but they have taken care to make the hotel friendly enough for business visitors, too; you have a work desk and access to fax and copy machines. The staff can also help you with reservations at local theatres and restaurants to save your time.
Sheraton Indianapolis Hotel at Keystone Crossing
Sheraton Indianapolis Hotel at Keystone Crossing is perfectly located to say the least. It is close to the monument circle, Lucas Oil Stadium, the airport, and many famed bars and restaurants of the city. The fitness center is well equipped, and the guests can also relax at the hot tub or the indoor pool. Complementary internet connectivity is also available at the main lobby.
