Today is the day!! We are at the airport and much to my surprise this plane is actually within 30 minutes of being on-time. Yea...no waiting for hours at the airport or having to return home with the disappointment of a cancelled flight!! Max arrives...we all greet each other and downstairs we go to get the luggage! Jim & I ...
For our return trip we took the southern route home via I-70 and I-69 with an overnight in Indy at the Indy KOA.
Fortunately none of us was in the right frame of mind for doing any tourist type things in Indy. I say fortunately because the following weekend is the Brickyard ...

This is a lovely, quiet campground beside the white river. I was the only RV and my section which was next to a side stream. I walk the loop as it began to sprinkle, so I returned to the RV and had supper. A major lightning and thunderstorms began about midnight and lasted till 230. There was a lot of rain with some wind, but it was the lightning that was amazing to watch I opened all the curtains and blinds so that I could watch it in all its ...
... It was nice to have a little browse.
Unfortunately we had just had brekky so we couldn't justify buying the fresh baked goods... the smell made it very tempting!
We went to the movies to see X-men. $8.50... so cheap! The seats in the theatre were so so comfortable! The movie wasn't too bad either. Being a Wed arvo we pretty much had the theatre to ourselves.
Afterwards we played a round of 'Glow in the Dark Mini Golf'. ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hilton Indianapolis
Rooms are larger than average for new properties of this type and have high-quality furnishings. An extra sink/bar was provided in our room in addition to the one in the bath. Desk staff was friendly and courteous. Room service was very quick and the food was well-prepared. Parking is steep at $18 and street paring is metered beginnning at 7. Try the Merchant's Garage just south of Borders on Meridian for $12.
Everything's good at the Hilton
My experience at the Hilton was great. I got the room for $46 through priceline, so from the beginning my stay was heading in the right direction. I arrived at the Hilton right behind a large group, and the staff did an excellent job checking everybody in quickly and with a smile. The lobby is newly remodeled and looks great. The guest room was clean and no non-sense, exactly what I needed for my one night stay. The room service was on time and the food was good. I went down to the restaurant for breakfast the next morning, and overall things were OK but the service was slow. The servers should know that most guests are there on business and looking to get through the meal quickly. After waiting for 10 minutes for my check, I got up and interrupted a conversation between three servers to get my waitress to bring my check. Overall my stay was very good and I would definitely return, especially if I can get another great price through priceline.
The Place to Stay in Indy
Stayed here for Brickyard Race Weekend. Accomodations were in order and check in was quick and efficient. Guest room was large and had 2 separate rooms. Breakfast buffet is awesome, close to rivaling some of the Vegas hotels on the strip. Also, a great location and within walking distance to most restaurants and bars.
We stayed at the Hilton July 21-24th. The room was large (we had a deluxe queen room) and very comfortable. We found the staff to be pleasant and helpful.
This hotel is within walking distance to everything in town!
We would definitely stay here again.
Loved the Hilton
This place was great, very luxurious room, bed had sateen stripe sheets and down comforter. Very large room. Pool was warm, although no towels; had to go back to the room for towels. No mention of Priceline at check-in. Highly recommend. Free parking on the street on Sat. night.
The remolding is done, the place looks great. The restaruant is good.
The Hilton, Indy -What a dump!
First time we tried Hotwire - where you give them a star rating and they choose the hotel and you get the best rate. I guess we should have chosen a 5* instead of a 4*. The Hilton Hotel, Indianapolis was a real disappointment. First of all it needs a lot of $$ sunk into it to bring it out of the 70's and into the new millenium. 2 out of 4 elevators were out of order, so they shuffled people to the service elevators, where once you waited for 15 minutes, you shared it with the room service staff and maids with carts of dirty laundry!! There were pieces of the hallway that were falling apart and there was a smell of mold in the room. The room was alright. It was clean, but the bathrooms could have been cleaner. The area where the pool was was actually airconditioned and the pool was maybe 72 degrees!! We stayed 2 nights because they were paid for in advance, but then moved over to the Westin.
That is a first class property all the way around. Of course you pay more, but the experience was worth the difference.
We recently stayed at the Hilton- we were given a room right behind the elevators though (because we used Priceline?)- noise from the 'vators was bothersome but we didn't ask to be moved.
Large room- 2 beds-- 2 desk chairs, plus 2 softer chairs with small table by window. Comfy beds and pillows.
Neutrogena shampoo, conditioner, lotion. Thick towels.
Clean place. Lobby being renovated so not pretty (yet).
Mostly friendly people except for one doorman.
Great location on Market St. between Illinois and Capitol. Right across from TJ Maxx.
Short walking distance to lots of different places to eat.
Parking a bargain ($9 a night) with in/out privileges.
We just returned home (Nov 14). We stayed at the Hilton on West Market Street downtown. We had an excellent romm with 2 queen beds, a huge bathroom, and a room with a computer desk, chair and couch. 2 TV's. This was easily the 2nd best hotel we have ever stayed at. We spent a little extra money, but it was worth it. The only thing missing was a small fridge and mircowave. The staff was friendly and efficient. Everythign was within walking distance. Had a wonderful time. Would recommend this Hilton to our friends.
Great location and clean and lovely hotel
We used "Priceline" to secure a hotel at a very reasonable price and we were not disappointed! Our priority was close proximity to the Downtown Indianapolis attractions. My husband had meetings in the city so that allowed me freedom and flexibility to walk to many of the nearby destinations. The Adam's Mark Downtown employees were friendly and helpful and the hotel is beautiful and very clean.
