The Sheraton Indianapolis City Centre Hotel is a high-rise hotel located in downtown Indianapolis in the heart of the business and tourist district. It is adjacent to Monument Circle, the focal point of downtown. The hotel is only blocks from Interstates 65 and 70, which run through downtown Indianapolis, and it is easily accessible from Interstates 69, 74 and 465, the beltway around the city. City Centre is within walking distance of many of the city's main attractions, including both the Indianapolis and Indiana Convention Centers, the Children's Museum of Indianapolis, Lucas Oil Stadium (home of the Colts) and Conseco Fieldhouse, the local sports and entertainment arena.
The Sheraton's 21 floors house 378 guest rooms. A 9th-floor outdoor swimming pool offers warm weather recreation and fabulous views of downtown. Amenities in guest rooms are standard, except for the Sheraton Club rooms, located on preferred floors. Sheraton Club guests have access to the Club Lounge, which offers complimentary breakfast and afternoon hors d'oeuvres. Rooms on these floors have upgraded amenities and come with complimentary access to the hotel's fitness facility. A business center with free, basic office supplies is also available in the lounge. The hotel provides wireless Internet access, but the service is only free in the lobby, meeting areas and the business center. Wireless access in guest rooms is provided for an extra charge. Two restaurants are located in the hotel: Ethan's, an upscale-casual eatery, and Churchill's Grill & Bar, a relaxed sports bar.
The City Centre hotel has over 18,000 square feet of space available, in many different configurations, for a wide variety of social and business occasions. Fifteen separate meeting spaces are available; the largest single space is 6,992 square feet. Professional meeting planners and a wedding coordinator are onsite to help customers. A professional catering staff can prepare any type of food, from snack breaks to full, sit-down banquets. All spaces are fully equipped with standard audio/visual equipment.
The Sheraton Indianapolis City Center is known for offering a number of guest packages that coordinate with local events. These vary with changing exhibits and attractions, but include:
Packages that coordinate with local museum exhibits, for example, the King Tut exhibit at the Indianapolis Children's Museum
Sporting events packages, coordinated with the many sporting events that take place in and around Indianapolis
Two different romance packages, with special rates and amenities for couples
Meetings packages, which include discounts on services and hotel points that can be accumulated for free services
Guest reviews of the Sheraton City Centre hotel are mixed. Despite the hotel's recent renovation, the facility seems to have problems with temperature control - many guests complain that they cannot get rooms cool enough, while a significant minority complain that they were freezing. The hotel's location is very convenient for many travelers. One says, "I never used a taxi or rented a car because I was within walking distance to everything downtown.'' The best compliments were reserved for the staff, however, who received almost universally glowing comments. One guest noted, "I cannot say enough about the staff at this hotel. They were extremely efficient and very friendly.'' Another says, "Probably the most sincerely nice and helpful staff I've ever seen.''
