Indianapolis, Indiana provides no shortage of excellent hotels for your stay in the city. Big, small, quaint, or luxurious, Indy knows how to serve her visitors. For my stay, I elected the Courtyard by Marriott hotel, in downtown Indy. The hotel stands right behind the giant blue tower, JW Marriott. So why did I choose the sister hotel and not the luxury jewel? I can think of a couple reasons…
- For my budget travelers, Courtyard offers all the wonder and awe of a Marriott property but at a affordable price.
- The hotel sits directly across from White River State Park and offers excellent views of the area. Not to mention, the hotel sits on the edge of downtown, offering beautiful skyline shots, but still within great walking distance.
- Room Service? Literally through T.G.I.Fridays!! I kid you not. They deliver right to your room.
- But really? I chose Courtyard for the superb (not just good) customer service.
Let me add a disclaimer–the hotel didn’t sponsor me or this post so I’m making this boast all on my own. Though I’d make it regardless. Before I even entered the doors, the staff worked to accommodate my request for a high floor with great views. Everyone from front desk staff, the waitresses at the tasty Bistro, the valets, to housekeeping made sure I felt like I was at home. I thought I had lost my phone charger (freaking out!) and one of the valets personally checked my car and brought the charger directly to my room.
And as a woman trained in customer service (for my day job), I ADORE good customer service. Truly makes all the difference. Let me take you on a photo tour of one of Indy’s great hotels in the city!
Come to Indy, stay at the Courtyard, downtown. I truly loved the experience!
