HRI Properties, LLC and Hyatt have opened a new dual-brand hotel in downtown Indianapolis. The 15-story property includes the 186-room Hyatt Place Indianapolis/Downtown and the 130-room Hyatt House Indianapolis/Downtown, that brand’s first location within Indiana.
Amenities at the development include more than 6,000 square feet of flexible meeting and event space, an indoor swimming pool, fitness facilities, a second-floor indoor/outdoor lobby bar, valet parking and more than 13,000 square feet of ground-floor retail space. Additionally, the property offers a 382-space parking garage, available to both hotel guests and the public.
The hotel is situated within the Wholesale District, one of the city's six designated cultural districts. The neighborhood is home to the Circle Centre Mall, the Soldiers’ and Sailors’ Monument and—directly across from the hotel—the Bankers Life Fieldhouse, the home of the Indiana Pacers.

“Hyatt Place Indianapolis and Hyatt House Indianapolis offer upscale comforts for both leisure and business travelers,” said Tom Leonhard, president/CEO for HRI Properties. "Our project team designed a hotel product that will only enhance and complement the already vibrant Wholesale District. We are very proud of the finished project and the team of associates we have assembled to serve the guests of Indianapolis very well.”
HRI Lodging, whose parent company, HRI Properties, constructed and developed the property, will manage both hotels. HRI Properties began work on a similar dual-brand Hyatt Place/Hyatt House property earlier this year in downtown Tampa, Fla.
