THE CONRAD HOTEL IN INDIANAPOLIS Who Would Have Guessed?
If you are like us and often need to just need a change of scenery, there’s an easy fix! Head to Indianapolis. Yup, you heard us correctly. We had zero expectations and were completely blown away. We made reservations at the Conrad Indianapolis, based on reviews on Tripadvisor. As we drove up to the valet, we could literally sense luxury spilling out of the hotel onto the street.
Having stayed at many luxury hotels, there are five components we require to constitute a great stay: friendly and accommodating staff, beautiful spa and pool, luxurious suite, delicious food and an amazing view. Without a doubt, the Conrad Indianapolis was on point!
The spa, pool and fitness center are five star quality. The suites are beautifully appointed with a complimentary pillow menu where you can custom order the type of pillow to meet your sleeping needs! The bathroom is so luxurious, with a separate shower, tub and TV. The Capital Grille Restaurant serves breakfast, lunch and dinner and is apparently the only Capital Grille in the country that serves breakfast, so you know it had to be spectacular! Yummmmm.
Beyond our basic criteria, this hotel is in the ideal location. When you step out onto the street you are right in the heart of downtown Indianapolis, which is a city that far surpassed all expectations. The cleanliness, energy, shopping, restaurants and architecture are incredible. I think we were most amazed by the latter; the beautiful balance of historical and modern structures. Monument Circle was truly surreal. For those history buffs, you will love the audio walking tour. Soldiers’ and Sailors’ Monument is stunning. The quaint cobblestone streets, horse drawn carriages, and trolleys added to the charm, and majestic fountain, reminded us a bit of the Trevi Fountain in Rome.
Upon our return to the Conrad, I had to check out the incredible wine bar, Tastings. I have never seen a place like this. It is screaming “Girls’ Night Out” so ladies book a trip now!
The Conrad Indianapolis is an absolute dream for a romantic retreat, girls’
