Since the creation of “Holiday Inn Express”, many people associate Holiday Inn as a place for the frequent traveler to rest their head between flights. But not every Holiday Inn is a “Holiday Inn Express,” and the Holiday Inn Indianapolis Carmel provides so much more than a bed to sleep in.

Although the Hotel is not far from 465, there is a sense of privacy and serenity around the building. As soon as you drive up to the hotel, your perception of what a Holiday Inn provides, completely changes. The grand entryway and dignified exterior really enhances the value of this hotel.

The cozy lounge has a double sided fireplace, plenty of seating for dining or for guests to enjoy a cocktail from the bar. The Hoosier Grill serves breakfast and dinner daily with full menu selections. For breakfast, diners are welcome to choose from the breakfast buffet for $8.95, or they can order off the breakfast menu which features Eggs Benedict and Biscuits & Gravy, just to name a couple. Mouth-watering dinner items have just been added to the dinner menu, including the Hand-Breaded Tenderloin Sandwich, Apple Bourbon Pork Medallions, and Shrimp Diablo Pasta. The restaurant features daily specials known as the “$8 daily dives,” and are a great meal for the deal.
