The latest property in the Courtyard by Marriott portfolio will open in Speedway, Ind., with the launch of MHG Hotels’ new 97-key Courtyard by Marriott Indianapolis West-Speedway. The hotel will feature Courtyard’s most recent contemporary room design.
Located at 6315 Crawfordsville Road, the four-story asset will feature an indoor swimming pool, fitness center and meeting room with 1,200 square feet of functional space.
“With revitalization of the historic Speedway Area, the continued growth of businesses and the lack of hotel rooms in the immediate area, it made this the perfect time to open new supply and add to the growth,” Andrew Quinto, MHG Hotels’ vice president of operations, told Commercial Property Executive. “We are also adding much-needed supply for businesses that are in the area that used to have to house their guests in the Avon or Northwest Indy markets.”
Courtyard is Marriott’s mid-priced hotel chain catering primarily to business travelers, with more than 900 locations in 37 countries. In April, Winwood Hospitality Group opened the 105-key Courtyard by Marriott Raleigh/Cary Parkside Town Commons in Cary, N.C.
“Courtyard has long led the industry when meeting the needs of the modern business traveler,” Quinto said. “Courtyard has continuously evolved, pushing the boundaries of design, style and service in the upscale category—introducing game-changing amenities like our Bistro Bar, an elevated evening experience featuring a menu of seasonal American Classics with a Twist and handcrafted cocktails, and collaborative lobby spaces. Courtyard Speedway will be the closest hotel to the Indianapolis Motor Speedway and will be the preferred hotel for guests visiting IMS.”
Experience in the area
MHG Hotels has been in the Indianapolis market for the past 25 years. According to Quinto, the company is very familiar with the unique demands of the Speedway market as it also operates two hotels in Avon—A Fairfield Inn & Suites and a Comfort Inn—both just 5 miles away.
The new hotel is close to the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, Lucas Oil Raceway, Eagle Creek Park, the Indiana Convention Center, Lucas Oil Stadium, Marian University and the Indianapolis Zoo.
