Worked great for us

Pros: location & over all feel & valet parking
Cons: carpet in room
Location: Murat Theatre
My husband and I stayed here. Thankful we did not have our children, this is not a family place. A certain level of decorum is expected. Loved the entry/ lobby. Old school vibe- masculine feel/decor for lack of better words. I appreciated the change of scenery from the standard modern day hotel decor. Enjoyed the displays. Room was good size, bathroom was small but true to the buildings origin. The only thing I would recommend, new (or newer looking) carpet- it was pulled away from the trim and dirty looking. Staff was friendly. Downfall, no vending machines. They do sell cans of sodas behind check in desk, $2- a little steep for 1 can in my opinion. Perfectly located, we walked to and from Murat Theatre. They do have an Atm $3 surcharge, which is standard.

If you're not a member don't book!!

This is a private members only club that takes overflow during events fort the city. If you are not a member you will be treated differently. They have a dress code that includes no t shirts jeans or ball caps no tank tops either...I paid a lot of money to stay here on the weekend of the indy 500 with my husband for our anniversary and I would have been happier at a truck stop hotel! We were not permitted in common areas of the club which included restaurants fitness center sauna and hotel lounge..very unhappy with the accommodations...the rooms look as though they had not been updated since the 1960s..
