Historical Traveler Reviews Embassy Suites Indianapolis - Downtown
A tired run down building
The furniture is old, thredbare, Salvation Army rejects. Water leaks in the ceiling panels are sprayed over. The hotel rooms have a musty smell to them and tend to be dark and dirty. We looked at four rooms then left to fo to the Hilton. The supervisor was very kind, and apologetic for the poor housekeeping practices. Sorry but, I just don't think I can give a glowing report.
Very nice, close to everything
We stayed at the Embassy Suites Hotel on 5/19. We were very impressed when we first walked in. It's beautiful and well decorated. A little challenging if you're afraid of heights! Our room was beautiful - a suite with a living area (including sink, fridge and microwave) and a separate sleeping area. Our bathroom was fine - except it didn't appear the tub had been cleaned. I called housekeeping and within 10 minutes someone was at my door to clean it. When she left it was perfect. The bed was very comfortable, with big fluffy pillows. We enjoyed a little time at the Off Track Betting facility on the bottom floor, and ate a couple restaurants that were very close within walking distance. The breakfast buffet was excellent and breakfast made to order. We were part of an honoree celebration for our work so we didn't pay for the room. But in checking prices afterward, it appears reasonably priced for what you get, the location and the wonderful breakfast. Would definitely stay here again.
*** Enjoyed our stay...Again!
This is my 3rd stay at this Embassy over the last 6 years. We stayed with a group of 15 travelers and booked 8 rooms. (The embassy was the concensus choice of the group). I have stayed at the Radisson but prefer the Embassy suites layout.
Hotel comfortable and clean. Staff helpful and courteous. Allowed us to check in early (a bonus) Hotel was a bit busy as it was during the basketball tournament but that was to be expected for a family hotel. Breakfast was excellent, (made to order bar, with hot buffet, continential bfast items etc.) Small pool and a couple of hot tubs and a decent workout room were nice
Parking was relatively cheap for downtown indy $12/night. Located right next to Mall, walkways to the RCA dome during bad weather a plus
Would stay again ... for #4.
Good enough for a first US visit
This goes back a couple of years to June 2000. For my first trip to the US I was booked into the Embassy Suites, my body clock was at 11 pm when we arrived, but I survived the check in process and was wide enough awake to notice you can get Hilton Honors at the Embassy Suites.
I had not realised that, being in the US, this was a tall hotel (16 floors) and I do not like heights. Plus the elevator has glass sides and there is an open balcony from the elevator to the room, so there is nowhere to hide. The view from the room was great as long as I didn't look down! I got over this after a few days.
The room itself was very large and good value with free coffee. Everything worked, although some cupboard doors were not straight. TV, radio, several hand basins.
Location was excellect, walking access straight across to the downtown mall, and good restaurants nearby, I particularly remember the Palomino. We ate in the hotel bar the first night, the barman was particularly friendly, but not too much. Breakfast was standard US fare, cereals, eggs, streaky bacon. There was a happy hour so we would head back after work and talk over the days events in the bar.
There was a pool but there was some interesting stuff floating on the surface so I tried it quickly and didn't go back.
If I went again I'd try somewhere else for variety, but I would not be against another Embassy Suites stay some time.
Don't recommend- other decent places to stay.
First of all the desk person was totally not friendly or welcoming. Then the room and especially the bathroom looked dumpy.
What a disappointment after staying at the Marriott, Westin, and Residence Inn.
I didn't want to say it was terrible but really there are better, way nicer places to stay- Hilton Garden Inn which is right at Monument Circle,
Omni across from the Pan Am Plaza on Illinois.
Don't make the Embassy Suites your first choice. If you have to have a suite, the Residence Inn's are way roomier, much nicer.
And at Residence Inn parking is free.
Terrible place to stay
My family stayed at this hotel two years in a row during Thanksgiving weekend. The hotel was very noisy at night. The refrigerator was not woking, and took over 24 hours to get a replacement. The service at the continental breakfast was so bad, words cannot describe.
Nice place to stay
Whether on business or pleasure, the Embassy Suites is a nice place to stay - good location, pleasant rooms.
It can get noisy - hey, it is a family hotel, but the front desk staff is very nice. Ask to get upgraded to the penthouse loft suites - very pretty, and TWO bathrooms!
Great value and location
Some friends and I were in town for a concert and I chose this place because of its location. As the show was on a Monday night, I was a little disappointed in the lack of activity in the city. It was pretty deserted, but we still took cabs to a few different places. There are a couple of good breweries and the hotel actually has a walkway that leads you to Circle Centre Mall. There you will find shops, restaurants and bars. The hotel was lovely. The room was spacious and comfortable with a great view of downtown Indy. The beds were so nice with feather pillows and comfy mattresses. So much so, that I had to force myself to get out of bed for the free breakfast the next morning. Luckily I did, though, because it was the best continental breakfast I have ever had.
Not only were there juices, fruit and breads, but there was a cook who would whip up whatever you requested along with the standard bacon, eggs and sausage!! We also had a paper waiting for us at our door the next morning. Other amenities included an indoor pool, 2 hot tubs and a sauna. Although I wasn't crazy about the city, the hotel was the highlight and I would recommend it to anyone!
I loved Embassy Suites
My family and I just wanted to go to a hotel for a couple of nights to swim and relax. We chose Embassy Suites, and was very happy with our choice. The pool was a little small, but it is the largest pool in any of the hotels downtown. The best part of it was the atmosphere. I hate hotel pools that are glowing with flourescent lights, and their pool room was very dimmly lit (no ceiling lights) They had a sauna and 2 hot tubs. Having 2 hot tubs was nice when you have to share with others.
They also had a free cook-to-order breakfast- waffles, omlets, sausage, bacon, potatoes, juice and more. Not your average 'continental breakfast'. They also had a "managers reception" every night for 2 hours in which they served free beer, mixed drinks and shots. It's connected to Circle Center mall, the Omni hotel, and several restaraunts. If you're looking for a nice hotel downtown, Embassy Suites is a great choice!
Embassy Suites, Downtown Indianapolis
We took our entire family (all 15 of us) to the Embassy Suites in
downtown Indianapolis for a weekend get-together, and found it to be a
wonderful experience. The suites were roomy and nicely decorated and
the managers reception in the evening was very nice. The breakfast was
delicious! We found the staff to be very friendly and helpful. The
hotel is large, so we did not feel crowded at all. There are many
things to do in and around this hotel, snd great restaurants as well.
We will definitely stay here again!
