The landmark building on Illinois Street opened as Le Meridien Indianapolis in 2014 after nearly a century as a hotel under different names. The Parisian brand invested $13 million into refurbishing the 1928 edifice’s 100 guest rooms, adding 2,600 square feet of meeting space as well as a new fitness center.
Rooms feature an airy palette of crisp white, heather gray and steely blue with mid-century furnishings, flat-screen TVs and minifridges. Upgraded accommodations have seating areas, separate living rooms and work stations with ergonomic chairs. Suites and guest rooms with two queen beds sleep as many as four adults. The hotel welcomes dogs (up to 40 pounds) with beds, food and water bowls. The concierge can assist in locating nearby groomers, parks and pet supply stores.
A large fireplace surrounded by cozy couches and armchairs welcomes visitors to the lobby, where Wi-Fi is free. Spoke + Steele, the on-site restaurant, offers a menu of locally sourced ingredients and cocktails popular with guests and locals alike. The property also features a 24-hour fitness center and is connected by skyway to Circle Centre Mall. Guests can reach White River State Park, the Indiana Convention Center and the Cultural Trail within a 10-minute drive.
