Each year Condé Nast Traveler rolls out their list of the best hotels across the country. Indy is fortunate to have three hotels ranked in the Top 20 Hotels in the Midwest for their 33rd annual Readers' Choice Awards, including Ironworks Hotel, JW Marriott, and The Alexander.
The Condé Nast Traveler Reader's Choice Awards are the longest-running and most prestigious recognition of excellence in the travel industry. More than 715,000 Condé Nast Traveler readers submitted an incredible number of responses rating their travel experiences from across the globe.
So, if you're looking to book a stay - or even a staycation - might as well make your reservation somewhere thatís known as the best in the Midwest? Here are three hotel packages we recommend checking out.
This hotel situated on the north side of Indianapolis, is known for its industrial cool décor with some of the city's best restaurants attached. Breakfast at RIZE and dinner at Provision is the perfect plan.
And because the food is so noteworthy, check out their discounted accommodations package called Taste of Ironworks. The package includes an overnight stay with late checkout, $100 Ironworks-branded Visa dining gift card, and a complimentary bottle of Ironworks wine. Seems like the perfect option for a way to spend a cozy, relaxing weekend getaway.
You can't miss this towering blue beauty of a hotel when seeing the Indy skyline. Perfectly situated downtown overlooking the urban core on one side and White River State Park, 250-acres of urban greenspace, on the other. With such close proximity to White River State Park, where you can find three of the five key attractions on Indy's Attraction Pass, we recommend bringing the whole family and booking this new package for discounts up to 50 percent off.
When you book the new Indy Attraction Pass Package, you'll receive complimentary popcorn, self-parking, and a 20 percent off discount in the hotel's High Velocity restaurant on ground level. Visitors must show proof of purchase of the Indy Attraction Pass upon checking in to receive the room discount and additional amenities. The Indy Attraction Pass is a one-stop-shop to access five of Indy's key visitor attractions including the Eiteljorg Museum, Indianapolis Zoo, Indiana State Museum, Conner Prairie, and The Children's Museum of Indianapolis.
The Alexander was the first hotel in the United States curated from the ground up by an accredited art museum, The Indianapolis Museum of Art. The hotel features a growing collection of more than 200 works of original art by 20 different artists, including 17 site-specific works commissioned exclusively for the hotel's public spaces. My personal favorite: the collection of over 4,000 combs that make up Madam Walker's likeness.
The Alexander has introduced new fall and winter packages, including a staycation experience with deluxe accommodations, complimentary art tours and 15% off the best available rate with "Hello, Hoosiers!" For those looking to break free from a home office or remote learning routine, the "Peace & Productivity" work-from-hotel offer includes deluxe guest room accommodations, complimentary WIFI, $20 in-room dining credit, early check-in and late check out. The property also features 52 extended stay suites, ideal for longer term reservations.
The 2020 Readers' Choice Awards are published on Condé Nast Traveler's website and will be celebrated in the November issue of Condé Nast Traveler.
