Le Meridien Indianapolis debuts following a $9.5 million renovation of the historic Canterbury Hotel, a landmark property in the heart of downtown Indianapolis. The hotel features a chic design ethos that juxtaposes the property's historic architecture with a contemporary style. As part of the comprehensive renovation, Le Meridien Indianapolis features 99 modern guest rooms, local cuisine in a re-designed restaurant and lounge, an expanded fitness center and more than 2,500 square feet of upgraded meeting and event space.
The hotel features the brand's signature Le Meridien Hub, which re-interprets the traditional lobby into a social gathering place, and further builds on the brand's award-winning arrival experience and coffee culture. Le Meridien arrival consists of four elements: large-scale artwork in high impact areas; the sensory experience, illustrated through Le Meridien signature scent, sound and use of light; UNLOCK ART programme, featuring artist designed key card collections that offer access to Le Meridien affiliated contemporary cultural centers in the city; and a 24-hour curated soundtrack. The Hub features the signature Master Barista, a recently launched initiative to meet the growing demands of coffee lovers at every Le Meridien hotel worldwide. Master Baristas lead coffee-related initiatives at each hotel, serve as a coffee cultural ambassador, and maintain knowledge of current coffee trends within the destination.
