Hotel Accommodations Indianapolis for MotoGP 2014

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.

Downtown Indianapolis Hotels for Butler Basketball

The basketball season is almost here! Four weeks past their official practice at Hinkle Fieldhouse, the Butler team is going to be tipping off for the coming season.

The Bulldogs have hit the basketball court in their new look for the first time for an intra squad scrimmage. The offseason saw some drastic changes – new conference, new head coach, and 6 new freshmen – finally they are ready for basketball.

The season starts with a match against Nova Southeastern on October 29.  The next matches are against DePauw on November 2, Lamar on November 9, and Princeton on November 16. The season will end in March 2014 with the Big East Conference Tournament.

See Butler Basketball's Full Season Schedule Here.

Here are some tid bits about this season:

  • Elijah Brown might be the best player on the team. He was the most active player on the basketball court.
  • Kellen Dunham should stay consistent. While Brown might be the best, Dunham is still the most important. He needs to avoid off-nights and stay consistent.
  • Barlow might run the point. It seems that Alex Barlow is going to be the starting point guard for the team.

If you want to enjoy the games without any interruption, make sure you book a hotel room on time. You can find deluxe rooms at Hilton Garden Inn which is just 15 minutes from Butler Sports. We also have great Indianapolis hotel packages.

Historic Hotel Indianapolis Offers New Keurig Coffee Makers

Green Mountain Coffee Roasters have partnered with Hilton Garden Inn to upgrade the hotel’s in-room beverage and coffee offering. There are more than 73,000 HGI guest rooms in the United States and Canada, and they all now have the option to brew a fresh and hot cup of coffee using the Keurig K130 brewing system.

At Hilton Garden Inn, we believe that travel should be a pleasant experience. This is why we keep looking to enhance our services and guestrooms, trying to offer a more comfortable and convenient experience.

Carbonview Research, Inc. conducted a survey on 500 travelers and studied the amenities they preferred in their rooms. The report said that in-room coffee was the second most popular amenity after Wi-Fi.

There are  many people who want to start their day by brewing a perfect cup of coffee in their room. Since different people have different preferences, it was a good idea to provide coffeemaker machines in each room instead of providing hotel made coffee. HGI partnered with GMCR to have Keurig brewers to guestrooms for a perfect morning. These single cup coffee makers can make steaming hot coffee in no time.

At our Indianapolis Downtown Hotel, each guestroom will have four complimentary Keurig cup packs. Additionally, guests can purchase specialty beverages from the 24 hour Pavilion Pantry.

Downtown Indianapolis Bachelor Party

The following post is a guest blog from Kirk Stelsel who has been a client, a guest and a fan of our hotel since 2010 when we hosted his wedding party and guests.  Kirk's post comes to us voluntarily and he was not paid or encouraged to write on our behalf.  Follow Kirk on Twitter: @kirkstelsel  THANKS FOR THE RECOMMENDATION, KIRK!

 

Being put in charge of planning a bachelor party is both an honor and a burden.

 

Anyone who has ever planned an event of any sort knows how hard it is to please an entire group of people by meeting everyone’s needs, ensuring everyone has fun and getting everyone on the same page.

 

Thankfully, one part of my planning was easy – picking the hotel for our downtown Indianapolis bachelor party. When it came to location, price, quality and service – I knew the service was good based on the way they handled my wedding – the Hilton Garden Inn Indianapolis Downtown was the only place I needed to contact.

 

Dinner at a local favorite for pretty much all the guys involved, Scotty’s Brewhouse, was a short walk down Pennsylvania Street from one of our favorite downtown Indianapolis hotels. After dinner, moving on to the best place to enjoy nightlife in the entire city, Mass Ave., was easy to walk as well.

 

If its basketball or football season and you want to take in a game as part of your bachelor party, the HGI is one of the closest hotels near Bankers Life Fieldhouse for a Pacers game and is an easy walk. Catching a Colts game at Lucas Oil Stadium is just across a compact downtown, so either a healthy walk or a very short cab ride. If music is your thing, the Murat Centre (now the Old National Centre) is right down on the street on the aforementioned Mass Ave.  The HGI is one of the closest hotels near Murat Centre.

 

I’ve stayed at this hotel three times now, and had countless wedding guests stay there, and every time has been exceptional. The rooms are always clean, the staff is always friendly, and both my bachelor party and wedding guests went out of their way to tell me what a great hotel I had picked for them. If you want a downtown Indianapolis hotel for your bachelor party with bang for your buck, service and some pretty cool history, check out the Hilton Garden Inn Indianapolis Downtown.

Indianapolis Area Racing Options

Racing fans are in luck this year: the Circle City delivers once again with multiple races within the city and also in surrounding areas. Racing fans of all preferences are welcome to book a room in our Indianapolis area hotel for easy access to all these racing sites. Whether it's horse, hydroplane, or sprint car racing, there's a raceway for everyone. This is why your friendly local Indianapolis downtown hotel (that's us!) has compiled a list of the best raceways for you to check out, especially if you're only visiting in the area.

  • O'Reilly Raceway Park – Located in Clermont, only 30 mins from us, features summit racing for the ET series. There will be several races held throughout the months up until October at least. This raceway also has motorbike and Camaro events for all you enthusiasts out there.
  • Madison Regatta – Less than 2 hours from us, the Madison Regatta will be held from July 5th through 7th this year and will feature the best in hydroplane racing. This local event draws fans from all over because of the intensity and excitement of the races.
  • World of Outlaws – Located in Kokomo, about an hour's drive. The World of Outlaws STP Spring Car Series 2013 schedule is jam packed with action from February until November. Some of these races will take place in other states but there are a significant number of local races too.
  • Hoosier Park – Nothing screams excitement like the combination of a horse racing track with a casino. This is what Hoosier Park achieves by featuring Standardbred racing while offering various forms of entertainment, food, and drinks in their casino.
  • Indiana Downs – This scenic race track hosts thoroughbred and quarter horse racing while offering other entertainment options at a fee. Access to gift shops, race wagering, and the bar is free. If you want to take it a step further, you can pay to use the theater and fine dining available.

As you can see, there's something for everyone. If you've made use of one of our Indianapolis hotel packages, it's likely you've brought the family with you. Well, instead of leaving them at home, many of these racetracks provide other sources of entertainment that they may find appealing so that you can turn the event into a family outing. Not such a bad deal, huh?

Beatles' Fans: Come Together for This Amazing Event

Beatles' fans, brace yourselves: Paul McCartney is coming to a location near you. That's right, the man himself will be at the Bankers Life Fieldhouse on Sunday, July 14th. Tickets range from $59.50 to $252 and with McCartney's popularity, it will not be surprising if this concert sells out. Don't hesitate; get your tickets today, and don't forget to check out hotels near Bankers Life Fieldhouse if you're coming from out of town.

The show will start at 8pm and is part of McCartney's “Out There” tour. This is the first time he has been back to Indianapolis since 2002. Eager fans should jump on this opportunity due to the possibility of not being able to see him perform for another 10+ years! During this tour, McCartney will be performing classic Beatles' and Wings' songs, as well as brand new material. Attending this concert is a chance in a lifetime – some of the music you will hear has never been released before.

Interested McCartney fans should look into downtown Indy hotels while rooms are still available. Let's not kid ourselves: most people are going to want to see Paul McCartney. This is one of those events where the phrase “if you snooze, you lose” holds particularly true. Tickets went on sale April 19th, so if you're just now finding out about the show, waste no time! As for where to stay, we can help you out with that. Our Indianapolis downtown hotel is only two blocks from the Bankers Life Fieldhouse, which will allow you to save money on transportation so that you can buy more Paul McCartney t-shirts.

The Indiana State Museum Delivers Once Again

Only six blocks from our luxurious Indianapolis area hotel, the Indiana State Museum is paying tribute to the infamous James Dean in their "Eternal James Dean" collection until June 2nd. In this exhibit, people will be able to see photographs and documents outlining the actor's life. Personal items he owned while alive will also be featured, such as his 955 500cc Triumph motorcycle and his uncle's 1949 Ford that Dean used during high school.

Dean has proven a particularly enigmatic character and an idol throughout the midwest. This exhibit shows his Indiana roots, emphasizing his teen years in Fairmount, Indiana. The exhibit takes a look into the time he spent at UCLA for college, as well as the brief time he lived in NYC. Since this youthful actor died at age 24, the years he spent in Indiana are a prime focus of the exhibit. Although having passed at such a young age, James Dean is known for his roles in "Rebel Without a Cause," "East of Eden," and "Giant." It is interesting because many actors living three times as long as Dean are not nearly as well-known as he is. Even teens in this day and age recognize his name despite the fact that he died in a car crash so long ago.

To get the full experience understand the "king of cool," book a room with our Indianapolis downtown hotel. Since we are so close to the exhibit, you won't have to worry about spending large sums of money to rent a car. In addition to the exhibit on James Dean, the Indiana State Museum will be featuring "The Lincolns: Five Generations of an American Family" until August 4th. So what are you waiting for? Check out our Indianapolis hotel packages right away!

2013 Conference Hotel Indianapolis and More

Happy New Year!  In the city of Indy, 2013 will be a weird one when it comes to conventions - we are going to have fewer conventions than usual.

For example, the Men’s and Women’s Big Ten Basketball Championships as well as the FFA and CEDIA conventions are in alternating cities this year.

As a result of this absence, our newly renovated hotel Indianapolis can offer group discounts and meeting space and catering during dates we have not had available in previous years.

What sort of group event are you planning?  Is your company looking for a place to have their annual sales meeting?  What about a family reunion or a high school reunion?  Are you a coach or part of a sports team that needs to look into an Indianapolis hotel pacakages?  Are you looking for a place to have your wedding reception?  Or even your ceremony?  What about a wedding group that needs to book some rooms?  Or a Bachelor or Bachelorette party that is having a night out in downtown Indy? 

Great opportunity for that company meeting (contact Camille Lauer), reunion or sports group (contact Lindsay Gill) or wedding guest room block, reception or ceremony (contact Celia Belden).
