Best Hotels in Indianapolis
The Alexander Hotel
The installations at Indy’s premier art hotel make a stunning first impression.
Even if you’re not actually staying at The Alexander, it’s worth putting a walk through this eclectic hotel on your Indianapolis itinerary just to see the amazing art installations scattered throughout the lobby and public spaces --- you'll even find some in the parking garage. This creative vibe sets the tone for unforgettable stays geared toward culture-minded guests who appreciate aesthetics as much as amenities. The Alexander scores big in both categories: the 157 guest rooms are decked out with sophisticated furnishings and artsy details, but also offer plenty of creature comforts, such as Keurig coffee makers, 42-inch LED televisions, plush white bedding and walk-in showers with rain shower heads. The hotel’s location in the mixed-use CityWay complex on the south side of downtown is close to theaters, shopping and restaurants, and the mod Cerulean restaurant provides destination dining for lunch and dinner right on-site. In the evenings, Plat 99 lounge on the second floor lures visitors in for nightcaps with sleek décor and colorful hanging lantern lights.
