The next time you are flying into Indianapolis for business or pleasure, it's a simple answer to the question of where you should stay?
The Conrad Indianapolis was recently voted the "No. 1 Hotel in Indianapolis" by U.S. News & World Report for 2014 and is 2013 Trip Advisor "Certificate of Excellence Winner."
Awards are one thing, the one thing travelers ask is,"will this hotel meet my needs?"
The Conrad Indianapolis met all of mind on a recent whirlwind trip to Indy. Located in a nice corner of Downtown Indianapolis, the Conrad Indy greeted me with open arms from the moment I walked through the door.
A welcoming staff set me up in a great room overlooking the Downtown Indianapolis skyline. It may have been a regular guest room, but it was spacious featured a big desk that was perfect for all the work I had to complete. Flat screen televisions were in both the main room and the marble-floored bathroom.
The Conrad also features a Evan Todd Spa and Salon, fast wireless, direct dial two-line phones a wine bar and for when you get hungry, a Capital Grille.
Should you have a spare hour, the Conrad offers something- kind of an unexpected bonus you should not miss.
Venture up to the second floor and check out the halls and rooms that are currently featuring works of art from artists all with ties to Indianapolis. You will see works of art from the likes of Constance Edwards Scopelitis, Walter Knabe, and Lois Main Templeton. Should you have questions, more than 75 members of the Conrad's staff have been trained on the basics of the art. Interactive reader boards and ample signage will tell you about the artists. While in your room, you can see more about the collection on the in-room art channel.
The Conrad Indianapolis puts a little international feel right in the Heartland.
Costing $100 million to build, this Conrad features carpet from Ireland, furniture from Italy, marble from Verona, Italy, and the crystal light fixtures are from the Czech Republic.
If you own a smartphone or tablet, you should download the Conrad Concierge app before you arrive. The Conrad Concierge app put a concierge right in your hand as you can use it to order tickets, rent a car, make dinner or spa reservations and even set your wake up call.
I wrote a detailed a review of the Conrad Concierge app last year and you can see it here:
