It’s official. As of June 1st, our hotel becomes a 100 percent non-smoking facility. Back in April, 2012 the Indianapolis mayor signed a smoking ban, which restricts smoking in all Downtown Indianapolis hotels, restaurants, bars, entertainment centers and pretty much any public venue in the city.
The public smoking ban in Indy isn’t entirely new. Dating back to 2006, the city already banned smoking in the work place and restaurants. As of June 1, 2012, smoking is also banned in bars, bowling centers, nursing homes and hotel rooms in Marion County.
Smoking is allowed in Indianapolis cigar bars and hookah lounges, but owners will have to obtain a specialty bar license from the city. Cigarette smoking will also still be banned in these facilities even with the permit.
This newly issued Smoke Free Downtown Indy law was signed about a month after the State of Indiana instituted statewide smoking restrictions. Governor Mitch Daniels signed the smoking law, which goes into effect July 1st. The state law does provide exemptions for Indiana private clubs, tobacco stores, casinos and bars.
When looking for hotel accommodation Indianapolis visitors will now find that all of our luxury rooms are non-smoking. Give us a call today to find affordable Indianapolis hotel packages near all the popular Downtown Indy attractions.

As the saying goes, “all good things must come to an end,” and last week Indy’s own favorite star quarterback, Peyton Manning, was released from his position with the Indianapolis Colts. While the 4 time MVP is being courted by plenty of other NFL teams – namely the Broncos, Cardinals, Dolphins and Titans, Indy fans will surely miss the winning seasons and funny commercials that made him so beloved.
So while Manning decides which team to join, that doesn’t mean that Lucas Oil Stadium won’t be rocking when the Colts come back for next season. With Stanford standout, Andrew Luck, as quarterback, fans are sure to enjoy some legendary action when he hits the turf. Of course, this is all speculation as the draft won't happen until the last weekend in April. But Colts fans are crossing their fingers for a new start quarterback to replace Manning and assist in rebuilding a thinning team.
So NFL fans will want to get their Indianapolis Colt tickets early and plan on watching the new quarterback in action. Downtown Indy hotels are filling up quickly for the new season with excited fans planning to come out and support their team. As one of the premier hotels near Lucas Oil Stadium, the Hilton Garden Inn will keep you close to the all the football action with luxury rooms, fun amenities and nearby area attractions to keep you entertained and well fed in between games.
Plan on booking your reservations early at our historic hotel Indianapolis fans love, and enjoy the video memory below of Indy Colts’ number 18 in one of his fantastic commercials that will keep everyone laughing long after he has left our beloved city.
