Two Courtyards sit within a 1/2 mile of one another in downtown Indy. Both make the cut, but we think this is the one to choose for your sweat equity. It's located in the Marriott IndyPlace Complex, very close to NIFS and the Natatorium, fabulous offsite options, and the gym, it shines. This hotel fitness center is BIG BIG BIG. And we LIKE LIKE LIKE.
Outside of the outsized workout room, most other hotel features stick to a pleasing script of nicely furnished rooms, standard amenities and services, including complimentary high-speed internet access, coffee maker and mini fridge. In other words, let the treadmill move your feet and the weights take your breath away. The rooms won't do that part.
Why is the gym bigger than most? Years ago the hotel filled in the underused pool and expanded the fitness center. Hooray. Travelers are treated to multiple modalities for cardio, weight stations and even free weights. For those looking to head offsite, our ETA to NIFS and the Natatorium is a mere 5-7 minutes on foot.
Joggers should also consider an outdoor run along our recommended White River route.
