This is a truly outstanding hotel, which is very close to anywhere you would want to go in downtown Indianapolis. The rooms in this hotel are converted from an old railway station - and there are some trains that still run under the hotel. There is a classic Pullman train that is on display just outside the rooms at the...

This is a really nice place, built amid an old train station. The decor is really neat and a fun place to take kids. The one ting that struck me was how incredibly friendly and accommodating everyone who works there was to us. The room was fine and we had no problems whatsoever. This is one of those hotels where...

I really enjoyed my stay at this hotel. Though the train running through was a little off putting the first time. Having the train rooms (though I didn't stay in one) was a really fun twist. The only negative was that the book in the room said there was a whirlpool and they actually don't have one. The location of...

I recommend this property with reservation. It's a very unique hotel situated in a perfect location to be a premier party hotel. It certainly was that! Extremely noisy! The noise was not from the trains but from party people...all night. It finally quieted down at about 5:30 am. Because of my IHG status we were in the Executive Club part...

First, I wish I had stayed in a train car! I had no idea it was an option to stay in a train car when I booked the hotel so ask, if that's your thing. I just didn't know they existed so it was a complete surprise when I walked to my boring hotel room and saw an awesome train...

This hotel is in a great location in Downtown Indy. The staff is always extremely helpful and the rooms are clean. We stayed in a train car both times we've visited. We were not disturbed by the trains going through. Really nice indoor pool. Would stay here again.

Great location for everything downtown. Hotel courtesy bus will shuttle you around if too tired to walk or in a hailstorm thunderstorm as we were. Staff very welcoming, late check arranged without any fuss. Small convenience shop a good touch just at the side of reception. Bar are quite small, but very friendly, and a couple of TV's not too...

This hotel had a free shuttle which was great for getting around. It was walking distance to many attractions, staff was friendly and helpful. I really appreciated the valet parking with in and out privilages as well. The only negative was no hot tub. Great stay.
