Providing Hotel Accommodations, Indianapolis. Scentsy Family, Have No Fear!

The Scentsy Family Reunion 2013 is no joke for Scentsy lovers, buyers, and sellers alike. This event will be held in the Indianapolis Convention Center and Lucas Oil Stadium from July 10th through 12th of this year. During this event, current and future Scentsy salespeople will be given business tips and trained to better sell the product by experts. New products will be released and new friendships and business networking connections will be made at this event. Kelly Clarkson will also be performing, giving guests the chance to mix both work and play. Since that combination doesn't happen very often, we don't blame you for jumping right into it!

For anyone unfamiliar with Scentsy, this brand sells candles that do not use wicks, creating less of a mess for home owners. They also now sell body products and have expanded their collection to provide all different types of fragrances -- one for everyone, it seems like. Scentsy products have revolutionized the market for products that make your home smell better. If you're at all intrigued or wanting to know what Scentsy is all about, look at some hotels near Lucas Oil Stadium (yes, we do fall into that category *wink*).

If you're part of the Scentsy family or looking to join it, we'd love to have the opportunity to bring you as much comfort as possible if you choose our Indianapolis downtown hotel for your accommodations. We like what the Scentsy family is doing, and we want to support all of you in any way we can.

Star Hotel Downtown Indianapolis Supports Canned Food Drive

Although the month of December usually involves a lot of shopping, it is also a traditional time of year to have a canned food drive because many people are in need for the extra food.

From now until December 30, 2012 we are having a canned food drive - all canned goods will be donated to the Julian Center.  The Julian Center helps victims of domestic violence get back on their feet and provides them a safe place to be until they can do just that. 

If you are interested in helping out, please bring your canned goods to our green hotel Indianapolis and drop them off at the Front Desk of the hotel. 

Not only do victims of domestic violence need a warm meal, but they also need a safe spot to lay their head.  We are also donating 180 lumbar/bolster pillows to help with this effort.

Thank you in advance for your help in providing hope and healing to the folks at the Julian Center.

What are some of the ways that you give back during the holiday season?  What sort of ideas do you have on ways that our newly renovated hotel Indianapolis can give back?

Indianapolis Area Hotel Hilton Garden Inn Remains #Chuckstrong

Indy continues to remain strong with Indianapolis Colts head coach Chuck Pagano as he begins his second round of chemotherapy and continues to win his battle against leukemia.  Doctors say that Pagano’s white blood cell count is normal and he is in currently in remission.  The team and interim coach Bruce Arians are hopeful that he will return to the field for the final home game on Sunday, December 30 against Houston.

Pagano was diagnosed with a form of leukemia in September and has been absent from all games since his diagnosis.  He has had very little contact with other people due to his weakened immune system as a result of undergoing chemotherapy, but did make it out to talk to his team during a game against the Miami Dolphins on November 4.

Several members of the team shaved their heads in support of Pagano on November 7, and those who didn’t colored their hair.  Banners with the saying #Chuckstrong hang in each end zone of the Lucas Oil Stadium as a sign of support from the rest of Indy as well.  

If you are interested in visiting Indianapolis for Pagano’s potential return to the final game or to show your support for Arians and the players before then, the Indianapolis Hilton Garden Inn is one of many hotels near Lucas Oil Stadium provides convenient and affordable accommodations.  Make reservations with an Indianapolis downtown hotel and show that you, too, are #Chuckstrong.
