The MotoGP World Championship is going to be back in Indianapolis for the seventh time in 2014. The Red Bull GP will be held from August 8 to 10 on a revamped motorbike circuit to create super exciting action.
This year, the dates are a week earlier than the previous years. This championship has provided a great deal of excitement to add to the diversity of Indianapolis Motor Speedway ever since its inauguration in 2008.
Riders in Moto2, Moto3, and MotoGP will compete on the revamped course on August 10 2014. IMS officials have worked with Dorna Sports and FIM to create a 2.645-mile 16-turn circuit that is laden with exciting new braking zones and turn configurations to create more passing opportunities.
The complete infield circuit area will be renovated to create a smoother and more uniform racing surface. Visitors can witness counter clockwise on-track motorcycle action at IMS if they book at the right time. Since it is always a very large convention, racing fans are usually unable to get a hotel room. To make sure that you get comfortable hotels near Indianapolis, book early. Contact us and we can save a deluxe guest room for you and take care that you enjoy the MotoGP 2014 to the fullest.

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.
Let's just admit it: we all love our Indianapolis Indians. No matter where you're from in Indiana or even if you're not from this state, you can appreciate how fun their games are. Because of this, we offer so many different Indianapolis hotel packages to provide a comfortable place for fans to stay. If you've traveled across half of the state to see a few of their games, you certainly don't want to be stuck staying at a cheap hotel! Your comfort is our #1 priority, which is why we take great pride in keeping our rooms clean and turning them into a home away from home.
Since we appreciate your love for the Indians, we are also proud that our own newly renovated hotel Indianapolis is close to the field they play at, Victory Field. This is why it's important that you go with one of our downtown Indy hotel when you want to see them play. You won't have to spend as much money traveling to and from the field as you would with a hotel outside of the downtown area. No one wants to spend the majority of their vacation time traveling back and forth on the same roads. Wouldn't you rather spend this time watching the games and sightseeing? That's what we thought, too!
Book your Indianapolis hotel accommodations at our downtown three star hotel Indianapolis today!

If you're a Taylor Swift fan or a Justin Bieber fan, then there's no doubt that you probably already have tickets to their concerts in Indy this year.

Looking for a fun way to celebrate the holiday season in downtown Indy? After the tree has been trimmed and the presents have been opened, you deserve to enjoy an evening away from the holiday stress. Gather up your family, friends, or out-of-town visitors and plan an afternoon away from work or a night on the town.
One great activity that everyone would enjoy is to take an Indy Brew Bus around downtown Indianapolis to get a taste of several different local breweries. For only $30, tour 3-4 local Indy breweries on a 3 hour trip around town that will pick you up right at the Indianapolis downtown hotels Hilton Garden Inn! Taste a variety of beer and score your beer tastes while relaxing and catching up with friends. Even buy beer in bullets or growlers and keep them on the bus in a cooler for those who want a little more than just a taste.
The tour takes about 3 hours and is a great way for Hoosier natives and out-of-towners alike to see the city and taste some amazing local craft beer including the Sun King Brewery, Flat 12 Bierworks, Fountain Square Brewing Company and Bier Brewery. The tours run Thursday through Sunday with one tour per day except for Saturday, which has three different tour times available. Make hotel accommodations Indianapolis and book your seat on the Indy Brew Bus ASAP: this event is very popular and tends to sell out fast! The holidays will be over before you know it; take a well-deserved night to enjoy them with a brewery tour and a relaxing night afterward in your favorite Indianapolis area hotel.
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.

Indiana is undoubtedly a state dedicated to and known for its love of basketball. After all, Indy will be hosting the NCAA Division I Men’s Basketball Championship Regional March 29 & 31.
