... that again in Indy. (How's that for a positive spin on being in Indiana instead of Paris?) We are settling into our home again, getting back to familiar routines and catching up with family and friends. Dorothy was right. There's no place like home-and your own ...
... And pre-booked way too many activities. (With me, spontaneity is a challenge).
We will be staying at a hotel in the Temple Bar district of Dublin, Ireland. And lucky for us, it's not just a hotel - it's also an entertainment venue! Each night, they have a dinner theater-of-sorts. For about 45 Euros (roughly $60) per person, you can have a three course dinner while watching traditional Irish dancers perform to ...
Breakfast at Cafe Patachou was amazing. Sarah had an omelette with bacon, horseradish and sourcream. It was served with toast, strawberry jam, and fruit. The best part was the fruit. Tiz had a breakfast sandwich. His favourite part was also the fruit. We went to the canal for a relaxing walk and then walked towards the war memorial via the walk of peace which featured stories about famous Americans. The only non-American was Einstein. We get some frappuccinos and ...
... a vending machine with the logo on the side. We catch the shuttle into town and check in to the artsy Alexander hotel. It has a similar super enormous comfy bed to Washington. Bankers Life Fieldhouse is about 100m down the street. We hit the mall which is huge and we quickly snap up two jerseys and a hat for the Pacers game tomorrow. We go to White Castle for an ...
We left home only a little later than we'd planned at 8:17 a.m. - 17 minutes has to be a record. It was hard getting out of the house because Missy wanted to come with us. We know that Biscuit and Missy saw the suitcases, saw us packing. So, Missy probably thought, "Road trip! That sounds like fun!" Then she was whimpering as we left.
We'll probably stop in Edinburg at Micky D's for breakfast.

Historical Traveler Reviews Crowne Plaza Indianapolis Downtown (Union Station)
We stayed on a Saturday night and went to a Colts game on Sunday. Awesome place to stay - our room was right next to large indoor pool and hot tub. They have a large work out room too. Room was large and also contained a fridge which I did not expect. The path to the dome is about 20' - can't beat it. The place is beautiful and has a lot of history behind it - will stay again. The room and parking is pricey but my family loved this place. Will definitely stay again.
Stayed at this hotel in early November, 2005. The location is excellent, right in the downtown core - only a minute walk to excellent restaurants and the Circle Centre Mall. The hotel staff are very friendly and extremely helpful. I had a problem the first morning where I forgot my shaving accessories, and within a couple of minutes, the front desk provided me with a shaving kit free of charge. There are two computers (with high speed internet) with a printer behind the lobby area, that are free of charge for hotel guests. The rooms are a good size and are very clean and comfortable. The beds are excellent. There is a nice bar/restaurant right off the lobby area. It is true that being attached to the rail station, that you occassionally hear the train roar through. My room however, was just off the lobby on the ground floor and I never heard the train once. I have no hesitation in reccommending this hotel.
Nice place, train is annoying
This hotel is in a great location downtown. Rooms are nicely appointed, clean, well kept and decorated. The train comes through and that causes a rumble that is ratehr annoying.
We are from Indianapolis but wanted a quick romantic getaway and this hotel did the trick!!! We stayed in one of the Pullman train cars and it was excellent all the way around, no complaints what so ever. The hotel is beautiful and the hot tub (maybe a bit too hot!) and pool were nice additions to our stay. All of the staff was excellent EXCEPT the woman who checked us out. Customer service is not her strong point. We took in a carriage ride around downtown and a show at Crackers Comedy Club prior to having drinks and a late meal in the lounge at the hotel. This is such a great location you can walk to anywhere you want to go. Definately a place to stay if you're in town. :)
Train car experience was unique
We stayed in the unique train car. Narrow as expected but my 4 year old train lover was thrilled. One thing I wish I knew before hand was that each of the 26 Pullmans are decorated after legends. Ours was Lillian Russell. I also saw Charlie Chaplin and Rudolph Valentino. Had I known this I would have asked about the various personalities because that is how the inside is decorated. One bad note, the bed skirting was dirty. A stain I did not see until we were packing up. The hotel is at a pretty good location. The valet parking is nice but makes your car a bit less accessible is you forget something. Recommend for the train lover at heart.
Stay for a Colts Game
We stayed one night for a Colts Game. It offered a direct route to the stadium, which was great. The room service was friendly and open late. It was across the street from many stores.
My main complaint is the noise heard within the hotels main lobby. It seemed to echo from every corner. Also, do not get a room next to the ice machines!
Loved the hotel, but bad personnel
We came in for the USGP.. We were staying in the modified train wagons. Very nice rooms. TERRIBLY annoying were the cleaners who actually knocked on the door at 0800 to ask if they could serve the room. Not once but several days in a row. Bad show, Holiday Inn..
Very thoughtful though was the package they gave us for the race day, with candy, water, etc.
Overall impression: Good hotel, good facilities, nicely located, but the cleaning personnel actually spoilt the experience. Sorry, no cigar..
Great Room Great Rate
I've stayed at the Crowne Plaza for my company Christmas party the past two years. We got the military discount and stayed at this fabulous hotel for only $87 per night. The room was excellent and clean in a great location for our party. Only problem was a minor one that wasn't relating to our actual stay but to getting from the banquet hall to our room. It was a small inconvenience we weren't prepared for. I would recommend staying here any time!
Great location. OK room.
If you're staying at the hotel primarily to take advantage of downtown Indy, this place is great. If, however, your in-room experience is just as important as the downtown location...this might not be the best choice. Our room (like many) faced an in-door courtyard, so our only window over-looked a public area. We had to keep the drapes shut because guest taking the glass elevator to their room kept looking into ours. With the drapes shut, our room was very dark and not-at-all spacious feeling. The hotel is neat and clean, however the dark decor doesn't create a bright or welcoming experience in either the lobby or room. Location on the plaza right outside the RCA dome is great. Perfect for Sunday morning tailgating before football.
