In the heart of downtown, Conrad Indianapolis holds all the makings of a luxuriously appointed vacation or “staycation” for couples, families or single guests. The luxury Downtown Indy hotel is one of 11 AAA Four Diamond hotels in Indiana.
With an on-site spa, pool, art gallery, wine bar and restaurant, not to mention handsomely furnished guest rooms and suites, it’s possible to enjoy a full weekend of fun without ever leaving the downtown Indy hotel.
A gorgeous blown-glass chandelier greets guests in the lobby, setting the stage for stays steeped in fine art. There’s no charge to visit the Long-Sharp Gallery on the ground floor during open hours, and visitors are welcome to wander and appreciate the pieces that hang throughout the downtown Indy hotel’s main level any time. If your budget allows, book one of several themed Collection Suites to stay in upgraded accommodations furnished with original works by Salvador Dali, Joan Miro and Pablo Picasso.
From fine art to fine dining, the Capital Grille serves up superlative meals that highlight fresh seafood and expertly prepared steaks with all the trimmings. The Wagyu & Wine promotion, going on through Nov. 17, 2019, proposes one of three Wagyu burgers with truffle fries paired with a glass of Napa red wine for $25.
Cap off the evening — or celebrate happy hour — by exploring the offerings at Tastings Wine Bar & Bistro. Customers can order wines by the glass or bottle to accompany sharable (or not!) small plates, but the real fun lies in pre-loading a card to insert into innovative stations throughout the room to dispense sips and samples. If you’re lucky, you might even get to catch some live music.
Why stop there? The Evan Todd Salon & Spa features a full menu of facials, massages and body treatments. Keep the glow going by relaxing in a steam room, sauna or the skylighted indoor pool and jacuzzi after your spa service.
If you want to splash out and explore downtown, the Conrad’s location is ideal. The Indianapolis Cultural Trail runs directly outside the entrance on Washington Street, leading to the shops and eateries of Mass Ave and the museums and attractions of White River State Park. If the weather’s not cooperating, a network of skywalks connects access to the Indiana Convention Center, Circle Centre Mall, Lucas Oil Stadium and other points of interest without ever having to step outside. Or, hop on a new IndyGo Red Line rapid transit bus to zip up to Broad Ripple or down to Fountain Square.
