This new dual-brand designed by Gettys ONE property consists of a 186-room Hyatt Place hotel and a 130- room Hyatt House hotel with valet parking, 6,000+ square feet of meeting and event space, rooftop swimming and fitness facilities, a second-floor indoor/outdoor lobby bar and 13,000 square feet of ground floor retail space.
High speeds, history and Hoosier hospitality are only a few of the reasons to visit the dual-branded Hyatt Place-Hyatt House in Indianapolis. Located in the reinvigorated Wholesale District—once a busy hub of railway trade—the hotel is situated among welcoming pedestrian paths that connect visitors to the area’s dining and shopping, convention center and museums—and to the epicenter of Indy basketball pride. Bankers Life Fieldhouse provides the hotel with a sweeping backdrop and locally flavored inspiration for the hotel’s custom elements. Home to two of the city’s 10 pro sports teams, this arena anchors one of the most activated areas in Indianapolis, inspiring the bold colors and energized artwork of the public spaces.
At arrival, the guests are greeted by a towering piece sourced from reclaimed gymnasium flooring. Studded with LEDs that are hued to support whichever hometown team is gearing up for the next big game, this exuberant installation bubbles up the wall, drawing guests to look up at the activated second floor—home to the reception desk, bar and terrace. Prototypical guest rooms and suites are accented with custom finishes and art pieces that evoke sports in calmer imagery well suited to the intimate spaces—like highly abstracted prints of basketball courts punctuated by flowing shadows. The sports motif becomes more subtle in meeting spaces; simplified abstractions of the Indianapolis Motor Speedway adorn the walls—one crafted out of the iconic racing material rubber, the other a simple and elegant piece of bent pine veneer.
The featured art wall—using only identifying numbers and jersey colors—provides true Hoosiers with a coded celebration of homegrown heroes—like Larry Bird and Don Mattingly—as well as all-star athletes who made their careers in the Circle City—like Reggie Miller and Peyton Manning.
