Go big at Indianapolis' premier convention hotel. The JW Marriott connects into the northwest corner of the Indiana Convention Center, but the connections don't stop there. The JW is also part of Marriott Place bringing the room count (see below) to 1,626 connected through one skywalk. When it comes to meeting space, the JW features a 40,500-square-foot Grand Ballroom (the largest in the state), a 20,670-square-foot Junior Ballroom, and 20,000 square feet of exhibit space.
The Marriott is directly across the street on the north side of the convention center. A quick stroll over Maryland Street puts attendees in the center. In addition to ample meeting space, the Marriott also offers one of Indy's favorite sports bars, Champions.
The Westin is sandwiched between the Indiana State Capitol and the Indiana Convention Center. It is next door to the Marriott Downtown on the north side of the center and connects a comparable amount of meeting space.Between meetings your attendees can gaze at the state capitol over steaks at Shula's.
The last in this aligned row of Indy's four biggest hotels, the Hyatt is just east of the Westin. While the Hyatt is Indy's original convention hotel, a stunning renovation gives this property a modern aesthetic. From the Hyatt you can take a skywalk west to the center or east to Circle Centre, a shopping mall that covers two city blocks.
A walk east from the convention center takes attendees into Circle Centre. Walk south through the mall and you've landed in the Omni Severin. This historic (built in 1913) and luxurious property combines the best of now and then. Planners will enjoy elegant decor in meeting spaces and attendees will enjoy modern rooms thanks to a recent renovation.
Tucked just west of the Indianapolis Artsgarden and next door to the Indiana Repertory Theatre in the heart of downtown Indy, the Embassy Suites spacious lobby with views up to every floor hints at the vast suites available to guests staying in the property.
On the southeast end of the convention center a walkway heads south into Lucas Oil Stadium. You can also take a skywalk east into the Crowne Plaza. This former home of the country's first Union Station recently underwent a major renovation. The classic train cars are still present, but their interiors are entirely new. Union Station remains one of the city's great meeting and event spaces.
The Conrad is the city's most luxurious property. From the marble lobby to a museum-quality art collection and one of the city's premier spas and salons, the Conrad is known for style and elegance. Like the Embassy Suites, it is also accessible to the convention center through the Indianapolis Artsgarden.

Developed as a part of Marriott Place alongside the JW Marriott, these three limited-service properties offer a variety of price points within a skywalk's jaunt of the center. These three properties are also across the street from White River State Park and its 250 acres of attractions, greenspace, and the scenic Central Canal.
Le Meridien brought new life to Indy's original luxury property, the historic Canterbury Hotel. 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 features local cuisine in a re-designed restaurant and lounge that has become a popular gathering spot for Indy's young professionals.
