The Indianapolis Marriott Downtown is connected via a climate-controlled skywalk to the Indiana Convention Center, Lucas Oil Stadium and Circle Centre mall.
The new M Club Lounge offers guests 24/7 access to an exclusive space where rewards members. Additionally, the fitness center was expanded and upgraded with state-of-the-art equipment.
One of the most significant changes to the hotel’s dining options is the addition of Conner’s Kitchen + Bar, featuring a menu developed and concepted by corporate chef, James Beard Award nominee Andrew Ashmore, along with Executive Chef Brian Dougherty. Inspired by American comfort food, the restaurant brings an expansive menu of elevated comfort food favorites, with an emphasis on wood-smoked meats and locally sourced ingredients, alongside a craft beer and cocktail menu.
