Great Weekend Get-Away

Our stay at the downtown Indianapolis Fairfield Inn was superb for a weekend get-away. The desk clerk clearly explained the in & out privileges of the underground parking garage and the color themed walls to identify the correct hotel elevator to park near was very appreciative. The room was very clean and the room furnishings in excellent condition. The staff kept the complimentary breakfast foods hot and fully stocked for all guests on the busy weekend we were there. Two of the amnesties we favored was the complimentary USA today and free WiFi. The hotel location is very accessible to the nearby museums, sports stadiums and the state park. We enjoyed leisurely walking adjacent to the canal to & from down town city center. Grade ‘A’.

Close to convention center and reasonably priced

I stayed at this hotel just after staying at the JW Marriott, which is actually connected to this building it's so close. It isn't a shiny, the fitness facility isn't as nice, and it doesn't look or feel as high-end; however, I saved ~$80/night and received a free breakfast. While the breakfast wasn't the best I've ever had, it provided more than enough before my conference. If you're going to be in town.. I would consider this hotel over the others in the area especially if you need to save a few dollars.

Practical

I was attending a conference at the Indiana Convention Center and the location of the Fairfield Inn was very convenient. The Inn was reasonably priced and the combination of price and location made it a logical choice. My only reservation was that overnight parking cost $23/day and since I was not using my car while I was at the conference this expense was basically for car storage.

Short walk to good restaurants, shopping and entertainment. On a quiet evening, rent bikes on the corners and buzz around the city for a while. Great fun!

Gets the job done

Stayed here overnight for a business trip. The room was fine - clean, which is what matters most. Nothing fancy and certainly not updated. The staff was friendly and the free breakfast was substantial (eggs, oatmeal, bagels, etc.). The valet parking is pricey, but seems the only option since I could not find parking nearby. Maybe there was a lot somewhere that I missed?

Snow Stay

We stayed at this htel because of the snow storm coming in and we needed to get to work the next day. The personnel were very nice. Our first room had an obstructed view of the roads so my wife requested a room change they complied without hesitation. The room clean, simple but the wireless was nice. Breakfast was a little shy but good enough to get us going. Would stay here again if needed.
