Rated 5 out of 5 by GSM50 Great stay!
I knew Westin hotels provide a great value but Westin Indy exceeded all my expectations for great stay. All staff members we came in contact were excellent and represented the Westin property with pride. Thank You staff!

I was exhausted when I arrived. It was so nice to go to a room that was clean and comfortable. I sunk in the bed! What a great experience to rest in the comfort of my room.

Rated 4 out of 5 by MRalph Enjoyed my stay, but...
The hotel was very nice & what I would expect from a Westin. I was, however, disappointed to discover that when I wanted to print out a boarding pass, there was a per-minute fee for the computer and a charge for the printer. I did not use the hotel printer but left my conference early to get my boarding pass at the airport.

When having to travel for work and for pleasure, the Westin has and always be my 1st choice of accommodations. The friendly atmosphere starts as soon as you pull up. greeted with a smile. The lobby, sitting rooms and guest rooms are always clean and make you feel TOTALLY relaxed. Just as you are at home. I LUVVvvvvv my WESTIN!
Thank You Westin!

Rated 3 out of 5 by Cookie12345 Everything too expensive
Anything extra was too expensive. Received different responses on questions asked from different staff. We were with a convention in town, everyone should have been trained better on what was offered for our particular convention. For example, I received 4 different answers on breakfast. One said it was 10 one said it was 30 and had received email that it was 16.

We stayed Thursday through Sunday for our religious convention. Needless to say, the hotel was busy. And the staff served us with awesome customer service- always available, friendly and helpful in getting us what we needed and where we needed to go! Hats off to the Westin staff!- I would suggest it to anyone staying in downtown Indy!

Rated 4 out of 5 by PAPPA1 Great but one thing lacking
This hotel was exceptional but still charges of internet service which is very unusual in this day and age. That mine set is very antiquated to say the least. Because you can walk out onto the street and get internet service for free. Outside of that one drawback everything else was outstanding. I look forward to staying again

When I checked in. I was instantly greeted and thanked for staying my "10th night" at Westin. Thought it was a good start. But everything seemed to crumble afterwards. I was placed on a floor, that was FULL of HS Football players who were staying at the Westin for an NFL Training event. The kids were extremely loud all through the night playing football in the hallway until the early hours of 3-4am. When I complained in the AM and asked for a new room, the front desk said..."Thats terrible. We've heard several complaints. Unfortunately the bulk of the kids are on your floor. Don't worry, they leave today." I let it go, although a restless night of sleep is difficult to erase. But was unnerved when I returned from a full day of meetings to find the kids were still in the hallway at night. I returned the front desk, about 8+ hours later. And they confirmed their stay through the night. Thus having me switch rooms late in the day. Once I changed rooms, the next issue was the shower. The shower head did not work fully in the bathroom in 1308. Plus the tub drain wasn't working properly, so i was taking a "light sprinkle of a shower" with my ankles in deep water. Next morning, at Shulas for breakfast, the service was terrible. Extremely slow. The omelette I ordered didn't quite have everything i asked for. Partially b/c the waiter did not write it down. Everything was served at once, both the cold and hot portions after a 20 minute wait. Very disappointing stay at a Westin.

The staff went out of their way to accommodate anything we asked for. We were with a large convention so the hotel was very busy. Even though they were swamped with guests, they still took excellent care of us. We will come back and stay at this hotel.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Manju Unsatisfied customers
Upon arrival, the front desk was very nice and helpful. The lobby is beautiful, but the hotel is in need of an upgrade. The room was very dark, and the desk outlets are inconveniently located. There was no vending area in the entire hotel, only the ridiculously-priced snacks in the room. After searching for an ice bucket for 10 minutes, it smelled so badly we didn't dare use it. The only helpful employee was housekeeping. We stayed one night to attend a football game the next afternoon. We missed the breakfast, so we went to Shula's to grab some lunch before heading to the game. The hostess at Shula's was very rude and short and asked if we had a reservation. We weren't aware we needed one, so as she sighed heavily, she informed us we would have to wait while she "checked to see if someone could wait on us." After 10 minutes, she informed us someone would get our table prepared. It would be about three minutes. 10-15 minutes later we were still waiting, so we left. It was a very smug and snooty greeting considering we paid $255/night to stay in the hotel and we were not just people walking in off the street to eat. It was a very overpriced, unpleasant experience.

The bed, the experience was not heavenly. The comforter is way too heavy, and when you remove, where do you put it? The temperature of my room was stifling when I entered, and the sounds during the night were ominous at best. Very disappointing. Not of Westin quality.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Jason2014 Not Happy with our stay
The hotel while looking very nice, it was too expensive to park, the room was just plain, nothing very nice compared to what you see when you walk in the hotel, there was a spot of blood on the sheets, that we didn't notice until the next morning...and there was a maid cart in the hallway all night, that had a pile of bloody towels beside it, I told the hotel at check out, but they didn't really say anything.
I got the room through price line, but it was still a decent amount paid, and the view I got was of roofs of other buildings, guess that's what you get when you don't pay full price. The only thing good was it was connected to the convention center where we were going.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Malamute Better choices downtown
I was in town for the Big 10 Championship football game 11/30/12. I don't like hotels with the electronic mini frig and if the $5 candy bar moves, you get charged for it. This hotel even had a couple more sensors on the desk for overpriced bottle water. In fact, all the plugs were occupied which lead me to charge my phone from an outlet behind the chair. Hence, I left my charger behind. I called a couple hours after check-out and Security went up to the room and found it. They assured me it would be there for me. My husband, who was still in town, forgot to stop by and pick it up. I called the next day and Security offered to mail it to me IF I gave him my credit card number over the phone. I was not comfortable giving my credit card number over the phone especially for only $2. I would be back in town the following weekend to pick it up. When I arrived a week later, the front desk clerk told me the computers were down and they could not locate the charger without it. The clerk took my address and phone number and promised to mail it to me. When the clerk learned that option was already offered to me by Security if I gave the man my credit card number over the phone, he was shocked and wanted to know the person’s name. [My instincts were right and the Security employee shouldn’t have asked for my credit card number.] The clerk assured me when the computers were running, he would over-night the charger to me. Well, another week has passed and I have not received my charger. I called today, and the front desk clerk, Emily, would not refer my call to the manager and instead forwarded the call to Security (the same people who wanted my credit card number) who did not answer the phone.

We were in the city for the Big Ten Tournament and, unfortunately, had to stay in Carmel for the first days of the tournament. We were able to get a reservation for Saturday at the Westin. Check-in is normally at 3:00 but I was sick that morning so I called to see if we could get an early check-in. After I explained the situation, the person at the front desk was extremely accommodating and said there would be a room available when we arrived at 10:00. We certainly appreciated that we were able to check in early. Thanks so much!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by mdennis1244 Great hotel for convenience to locations
We stayed at this hotel while attending a conference in town. The location of the hotal was in great proximity to the convention center as well as local restaurants and entertainment. All staff members were nice and helpful. The rooms were very quiet, especially ours that was right around the corner from the elevators and high traffic areas.
The only two negatives were the size of the bathroom and the amount required to park your car everyday.

Rated 5 out of 5 by deerisle Great service and location
This hotel is in a convenient location in downtown Indianapolis. The staff was very helpful, and the club lounge was nice (evening apps and morning breakfast items). Several of the staff went out of their way to make sure that I had a nice stay and found my way around the downtown area.
The rooms are what you would expect at a Westin-- very nice and quiet. A good business or convention hotel.
The only drawback was that the hotel restaurant is an expensive steak restaurant. The menu looked great, but I wasn't in the mood for a $50 steak.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Hoosiersteel AC Issues
I stayed July 6th and 7th in SPG King Suite 709 and the Bedroom AC was not up to the task of keeping the BR cool. When I first went to the room the BR AC was not cooling at all and after a half hour of waiting for the compressor to come on, which it didn't, I called the Front Desk to report the issue. I waited an hour and no one ever showed up we decided to go to dinner. We came back a few hours later and the AC was still not working. I called back down to the desk and reported the issue again and waited about an hour again no one showed up. I had to go into the BR and noticed the AC was cooling so I called back to the Front Desk to let them know it was working. Sometime during the course of the night the AC quit working again and I woke up in the middle of the night the bed and I were soaked with sweat. I changed clothes and went back to bed after finding a small dry spot to sleep. The next morning I went to the Front Desk to report the problem and was told it would be taken care of, they did provide some compensation, so we went to breakfast only to return to the room to find the bed made but still no AC. So I made my 4th or 5th call/trip to the Front Desk for the same issue to report the problem still wasn't fixed. About an hour later the 1st person showed up to my room that I saw to fix the issue. The AC worked great all day until, you guessed it, that night. For the 2nd night in a row I had wake up drenched in sweat, change clothes and find another dry spot to sleep. I went to the Front Desk again to report the issue again and was told that they couldn't compensate me again even though they never fixed the issue but offered me SPG points. I told the Front Desk person why would I want points for a hotel brand that I wouldn't be staying in again. All I got was a blank look.
My girlfriend has been staying here for years for work and has told me that this is not the norm and we plan on coming back to Indy in Aug and has convinced me to give it one more try.

1) I called at 6:30 PM to have the toilet fixed. I left for dinner and returned at 11:30. Toilet had NOT been repaired. I called again at 7:30 am the next morning. I left for breakfast and when I returned at 9:30 the toilet was still not fixed. I could not use my hotel toilet.
2) I was offered 1000 points. This is fair but I do not see them listed which means I need to find time to ask.
3) Where are the points for my two night stay?

I ask for a receipt every time and only about 50% of the time do I receive one in my email. I need receipts to send to my company for reimbursement and I hate having to call the accounting office to get a new one. Please fix this.
