Indiana may be best known for the Indy 500 and the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, or as the birthplace of the King of Pop himself, Michael Jackson, but it is also a great destination for travel. Whether you’re looking for historic luxury or family friendly, Indiana has accommodations for it all. Here is a list of boutique hotels for your next trip to the Hoosier State.

Family Friendly

What do you get when you combine a 154-room hotel with a 40,000 square foot water park? Pure AWESOMENESS, that’s what! Big Splash Adventure Indoor Water Park & Resort is the ideal resort for those looking for some great family fun. Everything is at your fingertips and you never have to leave the resort. There’s something for everyone, of all ages. Kids can enjoy thrilling adventures in fun areas such as Buccaneer Bay and Jolly Roger Jetty where they can have their pick of interactive activities and giant spiraling slides. Meanwhile, adults can kick back and take a relaxing float through the lost river. There’s something for the little ones too. Tiny tykes can splash until they crash in the Splish Splash pool, designed just for them. After a day a fun, you can retire to the comfort of your room where almost all rooms are equipped with a refrigerator and microwave, as well as flat screen TVs and coffee makers. Also enjoy a complimentary hot breakfast each morning during your stay.

Convenient and Comfortable

If you are looking for a convenient and comfortable hotel, Sheraton Indianapolis Hotel at Keystone Crossing  is your place. Located in the city’s most affluent area, the Sheraton is just a short drive away from the, ever-famous, Indianapolis Motor Speedway, as well as attractions such as the Indianapolis Zoo and Children’s Museum. Also, near the hotel you will find an array of restaurants, bars, and the airport. At the hotel, enjoy Sheraton’s Signature Beds with pillow-top mattresses, making for a great night’s sleep and wake up to stunning views of the city’s skyline from your room. While you’re there, take advantage of the 24-hour fitness center, as well as the heated pool and whirlpool.


Want to escape to home away from home, try Stone Soup Inn. This charming bed and breakfast offers a great alternative to the regular and mundane chain hotels. Here you’ll find Mission-style and Victorian-era antiques that adorn the hotel. Choose from a variety of rooms, each possessing its own charm. In some rooms you’ll find 2 person jacuzzis and others a relaxing steam shower.   Located near historical sites and downtown attractions, this luxury B&B is the optimal place in the heart of historic Old Northside.

Historic Luxury

Teeming with history, the Columbia Club Hotel is synonymous with prominence and prestige. Here guests will be met with a fusion of traditional and contemporary elements that will surely make for a truly unique experience. All overnight guests will have access to the perks and amenities of the Columbia Club. This includes complimentary WiFi, an in-house coffee bar, fitness center, and concierge services. Not to mention, the space itself is full of rich wood and marble. But, perhaps the best part of this Columbia Club are the guestrooms themselves. Each room has plush, foam-mattresses topped with luxurious Egyptian cotton sheets. No two rooms are exactly exactly, but you can expect flat screen tvs in all rooms and incredible views of downtown Indianapolis in most.
