Indy's Chicest Boutique Hotel
Indianapolis is just an hour away from Bloomington making it a great weekend getaway destination. I was immediately drawn to The Alexander Hotel downtown because of their art collection throughout the hotel. The location is ideal; close to Bankers Life Fieldhouse, Lucas Oil Stadium, Monument Circle, not to mention walking distance to my favorite brunch at Milktooth.
This hotel is Instagram gold. Don't you agree? I'll be sharing more about the hotel art collection in my next post.
The rooms are bright and modern with pops of color here and there. Beware - the local goodies in the mini bar area are dangerously good!
Take time to lounge but don't forget to explore this gorgeous city. The Cultural Trail, a walking and biking trail, is just outside the front door and the hotel comes equipped with bikes for guests to use at no extra charge. Cruise around downtown or head to one of the nearby attractions like the White River State Park or the Indianapolis Art Museum.
After a full day, head back to the hotel for cocktails at Plat 99.
Serving up Indiana beer on tap, wine and some crafty cocktails, this lounge is a popular spot for hotel guests and locals. Bonus - they give each table a bag truffle popcorn. Soak up some sun on the patio or get cozy on the sofas inside and watch the bartenders work their magic. If you're in the mood for a light dinner or late night snack, check out their menu. The ultimate grilled cheese (local cappicola, goat cheese, arugula, sriracha aoli) is killer.
If you're in the mood for dinner, head downstairs to Cerulean. Their menu is always changing serving locally sourced produce and meats it is always a treat to see what they've come up with.
Dessert is a must. Suck it up.
Superb customer service, cozy rooms, one of a kind art, and fabulous on site dining and drinks, The Alexander has it all. I look forward to my next visit!
