  • This place is steeped in history. The entire building is absolutely beautiful. They have a ballroom that is absolutely gorgeous. This place really does downtown Indianapolis Justice. Some of the stained glass in this building is breathtaking. The staff is friendly and polite. They also serve lunch here every day. Certainly a unique place to visit.
  • Only open to the public once in awhile...I would definitely go see it if you can. Full of history and the architectural structures are amazing. Every piece of wood, marble, and furniture has in this place has a history. Just beautiful!
  • Amazing architecture! A must see in Indianapolis. I always assumed it was a church, but it was never one. Carson Smith was our awesome tour guide, I highly recommend asking specifically for him, so full of historical knowledge!
  • Food was very good, lots of room for hundreds of people. Limited parking or I would have rated 5 stars.
  • It is really pretty it has carvings in stone on the side of the building of Jesus another must see if you come to the Indianapolis

Where to stay in Indianapolis

With limited public transportation in the city, those traveling without a car should consider the location of their accommodations carefully. To stay within walking distance of Indianapolis’ best restaurants and bars, look for a hotel or apartment rental in the arty Mass Ave or Broad Ripple neighborhoods. Downtown lodgings are often more expensive, but provide easy access to Indy’s best-known attractions for those on vacation. Bed and breakfasts in the city’s residential areas provide a healthy dose of Midwestern charm.
