Fairfield Inn and Suites Indianapolis Downtown Hotel Review: This White River State Park-adjacent facility is part of the $450 million, five-hotel Marriott Place complex on the western border of downtown Indianapolis. The Fairfield Inn and Suites Indianapolis Downtown is easy to locate — just look for the giant swooping red “Cardinal” sculpture out front. The Indianapolis Zoo, Indiana State Museum, NCAA Hall of Champions and Military Park are all just across the street and a short stroll up Indy’s scenic Canal Walk. Or, head a few blocks east into the heart of downtown to find Monument Circle, the Indianapolis Cultural Trail, great restaurants, shopping and nightlife. At the hotel, eight floors hold 168 rooms, all featuring rich earth-tone décor, free Wi-Fi access, iPod docking stations and luxury bedding; 34 suite options offer expanded space with separate living zones, mini-fridges and microwaves. A hot breakfast buffet served daily in the hotel dining room starts mornings off, and guests can also visit the on-site T.G.I. Friday’s for classic American food and drink.
