A new hotel soon to be built in Indianapolis will showcase Dolce Hotels and Resorts’ new “urban hotel model”, the group’s CEO has said.
The 157-room hotel, due to open in the autumn of 2012, represents the future design standard for the group’s city hotels.
Steven Rudnitsky, CEO of the US-based hotel chain, said the property will cater for individual business travellers, as well as offering meetings space.
“We plan to create the kind of warm, welcoming feeling that individual and group travellers appreciate when they arrive in a city,” Rudnitsky said.
“We want people who live and work in Indianapolis to feel comfortable walking in and spending time in our stylish lounges and restaurants. We want this hotel to become their favourite place.”
Part of a £155 million mixed-use development, the hotel will include 16 meeting rooms covering 15,000 square feet.
The conference centre will have the latest in audio-visual technology, said Rudnitsky, while the hotel will also have a Cisco TelePresence facility and a rooftop boardroom with views over the city.
The property is located near to the offices of four of Indianapolis’ largest employers: Eli Lilly and Company, WellPoint Inc., Rolls Royce and Indiana Farm Bureau.
The city’s meetings, exhibition and conferences offering has seen significant growth already this year, after the Indiana Convention Centre re-launched in January following a major expansion.
