Getting a hotel room in Indianapolis isn’t always easy. When I learned of a new hotel being developed on the city’s north side that featured industrial architecture — the north side’s first boutique hotel — I was eager to check it out. Ironworks Hotel Indy, down the street from the popular Keystone at the Crossing shopping district, is a 100,000-square-foot hotel with 120 guest rooms, a fitness center, and three meeting and conference rooms with a decidedly urban industrial style.
Ironworks Hotel Indy also offers 15,000 square feet of street-level retail space, including Cunningham Restaurant Group’s Rize, a breakfast and lunch restaurant open seven days a week that also offers catering, and Provision, which occupies 5,000 square feet on the second floor and features an outdoor patio for lunch and dinner. (Evansville’s Bru Burger Bar in the former Greyhound Terminal also is a Cunningham Restaurant Group property.) Blue Sushi Sake Grill, Indianapolis’ first location, also is open on the property.
Guest rooms at the Ironworks are unlike any room you’ve stayed in. Unique touches include a high ceiling, 60-inch Ultra HD television, a spa-like bathroom with a luxury shower, a large leather couch, and the fact that, for a fee, rooms can be pet friendly.
Ironworks Hotel Indy is adjacent to the Ironworks at Keystone mixed-use apartment and retail complex, which houses, among other establishments, a Ruth’s Chris Steak House.
