Feeling Pampered and Refreshed at Conrad Indy

Feeling Pampered and Refreshed at Conrad Indy

Located in the heart of downtown, a stay at the Conrad Indianapolis promises visitors a luxurious and artsy stay.

Yes, the city’s recent artsy revival has also seemed to affect one of the city’s finest hotels as well. The first and second floors of the Conrad feature the works of both local and world renowned artists, and the hotel houses its own permanent art gallery as well.

The Long-Sharp Gallery, which is an extension of ModernMasters Fine Art, has rotating exhibits throughout the year with a primary focus on the best of modern and contemporary art. While we were there they had a wonderful Andy Warhol exhibit, and they’ve also held exhibitions featuring Picasso, Roy Lichtenstein and Keith Haring.

While we appreciated the awesome art scene, what we really loved about the Conrad was the comfort and atmosphere.

Immediately upon walking into our room each day, we felt relaxed and ready to recharge.

The bed was among the comfiest I’ve ever slept in.

As we had been sleeping on a sofa bed for the past couple of weeks leading up to our stay, our backs welcomed the change of what felt like sleeping on clouds.

For added comfort, they also had a complete pillow menu which we happily tried out each night.

My favorite part of our luxurious room? The bathroom.

It had those little touches of luxury that we had most been looking forward to. The shower had water pressure to die for and you can be sure that the large, separate soak tub didn’t go unused.

Add in the fact that there was an additional flat-screen TV in the bathroom…heaven!

One night, we returned to our room after enjoying some wine tastings downstairs, only to find chocolate-covered strawberries waiting for us. Chocolates, TV and a soak all in one? Oh how pampered I felt.

And yes, like I just mentioned, downstairs there were wine tastings. Tastings… A Wine Experience is Indy’s largest wine tasting venue and it’s conveniently located on the Conrad’s ground floor.

Each evening after a long day of sightseeing around Indy, we were excited to relax and try a few different wine tastings. You’ll probably remember me saying not too long ago that I’m not much a wine person– and yes, this is true.

But I absolutely love the idea of buying tastings in order try a whole bunch since usually, when I buy by the glass, I unfortunately always pick something I don’t tend to care for.

I would not hesitate to recommend a stay at the Conrad Indianapolis hotel. Being located right in the middle of downtown, the location couldn’t get any more convenient and I loved the hotel’s artsy touches.

Not only that, but the staff were continually helpful and the service impeccable. Its comfort and luxuriousness certainly lived up to the Conrad name, and I know I’ll we’ll staying here again in the future!

A very special thank you to Conrad Indianapolis and Visit Indy for arranging our stay! As always, all opinions are my own.

    • Beth Williams
      March 27, 2015 / 10:47 am

      Yeah! I was so excited to see the different wine tastings available.

    • Beth Williams
      March 27, 2015 / 10:52 am

      It was a nice spot for reading and getting some work done!

    What an awesome hotel room! I especially love the standalone shower in the bathroom. I know where I want to stay if I ever go up to Indy!

    • Beth Williams
      March 27, 2015 / 10:52 am

      I know! I love bathrooms that have standalone showers AND large soak tubs. Heaven!

  11. March 24, 2015 / 4:54 pm

    What a gorgeous room – and those strawberries! I doubt I would come out again, I would just lie on the bed and snuggle up!

    • Beth Williams
      March 27, 2015 / 10:53 am

      Totally wanted to do just that at one point :)

  12. March 24, 2015 / 4:48 pm

    Andy Warhol is one of my favorite artists; I would have like to have caught that art exhibition. And the bed does look extremely comfortable!

    • Beth Williams
      March 27, 2015 / 10:54 am

    • Beth Williams
      March 27, 2015 / 10:54 am

      If I ever have my own home… I NEED a TV in the bathroom ;)

  16. March 24, 2015 / 10:24 am

    That’s totally a winner. I love the spacious room and the location is very important for me. I would definitely check this hotel when I be in the area.

    • Beth Williams
      March 27, 2015 / 10:54 am

      You should! It’s a great hotel.

  17. March 24, 2015 / 9:56 am

    That does look like a very relaxing and welcoming hotel room. And how convenient that the wine tasting is right in the lobby downstairs.

    • Beth Williams
      March 27, 2015 / 10:54 am

      Almost too convenient ;)

  18. March 24, 2015 / 9:46 am

    • Beth Williams
      March 27, 2015 / 10:55 am

      We really enjoyed the wine tasting! We actually found one there that we can’t stop talking about (although sadly we haven’t seen it sold anywhere!)

  19. March 24, 2015 / 9:21 am

    Wow, looks so comfy and cozy! I hope my stay in Indy is as lovely!

    • Beth Williams
      March 27, 2015 / 10:55 am

      I’m sure it will be! Have you booked your hotel yet?

  20. March 24, 2015 / 9:00 am

    I would love to get pampered in a room like this one, heck I would never even leave the bathroom. I don’t think we’ve ever had a room this fancy on any of out trips, I definitely need to book a room here on our next trip.

    • Beth Williams
      March 27, 2015 / 10:56 am

      It’s nice to splash out on luxe hotels every now and then ;)

    I love hotels with big spaces for bathrooms! I love lounging in the bathtub and just taking my time. That’s a big consideration for me!

    • Beth Williams
      March 27, 2015 / 10:58 am

      Conrads are the perfect hotels for a little relaxation and unwinding!

  25. March 24, 2015 / 12:56 am

    I have never stayed at a Conrad hotel, but I love how the room has a refined elegant look to it. I’ll definitely have to check it out if I decide to go to Indianapolis anytime soon.

    • Beth Williams
      March 27, 2015 / 10:57 am

      That’s awesome! I’m now excited to check out other Conrad’s around the world.

  28. March 23, 2015 / 11:37 pm

    They really give you plenty of space in those rooms! Wow, it just looks so comfortable. Checking out the wines sounds awesome!

    • Beth Williams
      March 27, 2015 / 11:01 am

      The wine tasting was a lot of fun– especially since we really don’t know much about wine!

  30. March 23, 2015 / 9:31 pm

    Oooh what a luxurious room! That bed looks like I could sleep for a week in it.

    • Beth Williams

    • Beth Williams
      March 27, 2015 / 11:10 am

      That’s awesome! Always nice to get out and relax a little ;)

  32. March 23, 2015 / 7:06 pm

    I have never been to a wine tasting. That’s nice that they have that at the vicinity.

    Hubby and I just recently begun incorporating wine into our lifestyle.

    • Beth Williams
      March 27, 2015 / 11:02 am

      I know! I was surprised since I didn’t expect to do any wine tasting in Indy. We’re also trying to work more wine into our lives ;)

  33. March 23, 2015 / 6:46 pm

    If I came back to chocolate covered strawberries it would make me happy too. Sometimes it really is the little things. :)

    • Beth Williams
      March 27, 2015 / 11:02 am

      It is! And the Conrad was such good at the little things– their customer service was amazing.

  34. March 23, 2015 / 6:23 pm

    That is a very posh and luxurious room! Wow! I’ve never stayed at any of the Conrad Hotels but I’ll definitely keep it in mind for my future travel. :)

    • Beth Williams
      March 27, 2015 / 11:03 am

      That’s awesome that you’re from the area! Indy seems like such a fun place to have called home.

    • Beth Williams
      March 27, 2015 / 11:07 am

      That’s awesome that you go to school there! Since I’m from Chicago, I also had a few friends that also went to school in Indiana (Purdue and Butler) and they loved the city!

  38. March 23, 2015 / 4:41 pm

    WOW! Now that is a hotel I would feel right at home in! All the rooms look so fresh and clean :D

      We really did!

  41. March 23, 2015 / 1:53 pm

    That bed does look heavenly! A TV in the bathroom AND chocolate dipped strawberries? Yes, please. I could imagine spending a long weekend there.

    • Beth Williams
      March 27, 2015 / 11:08 am

      Yes! It was absolutely perfect for our long weekend stay!

  42. March 23, 2015 / 11:22 am

    This looks wonderful. I could totally use this. I have three kids, a day job, and a blog. Sometimes, it’s nice to just unplug and relax!

    • Beth Williams
      March 27, 2015 / 11:11 am

      Ugh, I hear ya! I don’t have kids… but I do know what it’s like to work a 50-hour a week job and then run a blog on top of it! Sometimes I feel like I’m never off the clock!

  43. March 23, 2015 / 10:42 am

    I don’t know if this is technically one of them but I love art deco hotels! And that bathroom is way nicer than mine! Looks like a great place to stay!

    • Beth Williams
      March 27, 2015 / 11:09 am

      I love any hotel that has an art element to it!

    What a gorgeous place! I could stand a day or three at the Conrad. It looks wonderful.

    • Beth Williams
      March 27, 2015 / 11:09 am

      I’d go with 3. We def enjoyed all 3 of our days at the Conrad ;)

  45. March 23, 2015 / 9:41 am

    Wow, what a gorgeous hotel! I love all the artwork. I haven’t visited Indianapolis, but it’s definitely on my list. I’ve heard it’s an awesome city to visit!

    • Beth Williams
      March 27, 2015 / 11:11 am

      You should! It was an awesome city for sure!

  46. March 23, 2015 / 9:37 am

    We just got home from staying 19 days in a motel. I wish the motel we stayed in was as nice as yours. That would be like a fantastic vacation.

    • Beth Williams
      March 27, 2015 / 11:09 am

      Yeah, before our time in Indy we had spent the past 40 days backpacking through Central America, staying in little dingy rooms. This was heavenly and much needed after that!
