Marriott Indianapolis Downtown
Why We Love This Hotel
- Business-minded hotel with a skywalk connecting to the convention center and mall
- Sports fans can take a short walk to Lucas Oil Stadium and Victory Field
- Never miss a score at the on-site sports bar with over 25 flat-screen TVs
- Take a scenic 20-minute walk along the riverside White River Trail to get to the state park and home of the Indianapolis Zoo
The Marriott Indianapolis Downtown is a favorite among business travelers to the area who like the ease of the skywalk connecting them to the Indiana Convention Center. If work is the last thing on your mind, the hotel is a great jumping off point for other exploits in the “Racing Capital of the World”
You may not be able to get a seat to watch the Indy 500 but sports fans can easily access other options from the hotel. Take the skywalk directly to Lucas Oil Stadium to watch the NFL’s Indianapolis Colts play on their home turf.
Baseball buffs can take advantage of the short three-minute walk to Victory Field, to see the MLB minor league Indianapolis Indians on the diamond.
If tickets are priced out of your league, don’t despair. The hotel is home to Champions sports bar, the next best thing to being there with dozens of flat-screen TVs and two jumbo screens. Fare here is typical American bar food and snacks, so for more peaceful dining, go to the Circle City Bar and Grill, a more chic on-site option that won’t have the cheers and jeers of game day viewers.
Those who eschew sports can skip the hubbub all together, and take the skywalk to the Circle Center Mall or a scenic 20-minute walk along the riverside White River Trail to get to the state park and home of the Indianapolis Zoo.
Rooms here are classy corporate with jewel tones of purple, gold and red on the beds, curtains and carpeting. Past guests on Tripadvisor laud the city views from the higher floors.
