Hilton Expands Multi‑Brand Footprint with New Dual‑Flag Hotel in Indianapolis, Indiana

Unique dual‑branded downtown hotel features 231 guest rooms and suites and 11,000 square feet of meeting space

INDIANAPOLIS - Hilton today announced the opening of its newest hotel, the dual-branded Hampton Inn by Hilton and Homewood Suites by Hilton Indianapolis Canal IUPUI. Located on the Indianapolis Canal Walk and across from Indiana University Purdue University Indianapolis (IUPUI), the property is a unique new addition to Indianapolis, Indiana’s lodging offerings. Built on the historic religious site of the Bethel A.M.E. Church, guests will be welcomed inside the church upon arrival into a hotel designed and built around an existing three-story church that dates to 1869 and was added to the National Register in 1991.

“We’re delighted to open Hampton Inn by Hilton and Homewood Suites by Hilton Indianapolis Canal IUPUI and offer business and leisure travelers visiting Indianapolis with an innovative and value-driven lodging experience,” said Ashley Ramirez, general manager. “Blending these two category-leading brands and their signature, yet distinct, identities under one roof further propels our commitment to providing quality lodging options to meet a wide variety of styles, travel needs and desired price points” 

The multi-brand concept provides larger and enhanced communal areas and amenities than what would be standard at a standalone property, benefiting both business and leisure travelers. The hotel has a mix of unique offerings – each catering to the needs of their respective guests – such as complimentary breakfast at both brands, 11,000 square feet of event space including an outdoor rooftop patio and multiple retail offerings including a Starbucks and McAlister’s Deli, scheduled to open in 2022. Homewood Suites guests will also enjoy a complimentary managers reception on Wednesday evenings. The property has a variety of shared amenities as well, including a 24-hour fitness center, indoor pool, and two outdoor patios with fire pits and a grill for guest use. 

The 7-story property, developed and managed by SUN Development & Management Corporation, is located at 414 West Vermont St., offering 123 Hampton Inn guest rooms and 108 Homewood rooms and suites, for a total of 231 guest rooms and suites. Conveniently situated in the Canal and White River State Park Cultural District, guests will enjoy easy access to IUPUI, the Indiana Convention Center and Lucas Oil Stadium, multiple hospitals including IU Health University Hospital, Riley Children’s Hospital, IU Health Methodist Hospital and Eskenazi Hospital, the Indiana Government Center, Indiana Historical Society, Madame Walker Legacy Center, Military Park, White River State Park, the Indianapolis Zoo, and all that downtown Indianapolis has to offer.
