The Alexander, Named A Top Indianapolis Hotel, Invites Visitors To Celebrate When They Are Ready Through Enticing Fall & Winter Offers

Condé Nast Traveler has announced the results of its 33rd annual Readers’ Choice Awards with The Alexander, a Dolce Hotel by Wyndham, recognized as a top hotel in Indiana and ranked among the Top 20 Hotels in the Midwest.

“We are honored that for a second consecutive year, the readers of Condé Nast Traveler have recognized The Alexander as a leading hotel in the Midwest,” said Barry Cockrum, General Manager for The Alexander. “This continued recognition is a testament to The Alexander’s artfully elevated guest experience and the gracious hospitality that we have become known for. Particularly in this most unusual of years, we are especially honored to feel this connection to our guests both near and far.”

Upon its opening in 2013, The Alexander was the first hotel in the United States curated from the ground up by an accredited art museum, The Indianapolis Museum of Art. The 209-room property features a growing collection of more than 200 works of original art by 20 different artists, including 17 site-specific works commissioned exclusively for the hotel’s public spaces. Arguably, the hotel’s most engaging work of art is its café and bar lounge, Plat 99 Coffee + Cocktails, which features a local curation of food and drink under its namesake of 99 colorful glass pendant lamps by acclaimed artist Jorge Pardo. The Alexander, owned by Buckingham Companies, is located in the vibrant neighborhood of CityWay in downtown Indianapolis.

The Alexander has introduced enticing new fall and winter packages for visitors this fall and winter, including a staycation experience with deluxe accommodations, complimentary art tours and 15% off the best available rate with “Hello, Hoosiers!” For those looking to break free from a home office or remote learning routine, the “Peace & Productivity” work-from-hotel offer includes deluxe guest room accommodations, complimentary WIFI, $20 in-room dining credit, early check-in and late check out. The property also features 52 extended stay suites, ideal for longer term reservations.

The Condé Nast Traveler Readers’ Choice Awards are the longest-running and most prestigious recognition of excellence in the travel industry. More than 715,000 Condé Nast Traveler readers submitted an incredible number of responses rating their travel experiences from across the globe.

“The results of this year’s survey, conducted at the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, are a testament to the lasting power of a meaningful travel experience,” said Jesse Ashlock, U.S. Editor of Condé Nast Traveler. “The winners represent the best of the best for our

audience and offer plenty of trip-planning inspiration for all the adventures we can’t wait to have next.”

The 2020 Readers’ Choice Awards are published on Condé Nast Traveler’s website and will be celebrated in the November issue of Condé Nast Traveler US and UK print editions.
