I have made a purchase through Hotwire for our 6 day stay in Indianapolis. The hotel we ended up with is Renaissance Tower Historic Inn.
After reading reviews on the Internet for this place, I am terrified! Honestly, I am sick. I have never seen hotel reviews as bad as this hotel has received. It appears from the reviews that 9th street is not a safe neighborhood.
Can anybody please give me some information about the area and the hotel.
My reply might be moot since you posted your questions awhile ago, but I will say that I have stayed in Renaissance tower some years ago and I thought it was a very nicely maintained, efficiently operated, and tastefully decorated historic inn. I realize places can change over time, but I have generally heard good things about the hotel even recently. In any event, I believe the current owners plan to convert it entirely into condominiums soon. The area around the hotel is certainly NOT dangerous--it is just a little bland and not full of much activity. However, you are not very far from central downtown which is very nice.
