Holiday Inn at Crowne PlazaIndianapolis, Indiana
This unique hotel, located in historic Union Station, is a large development within an 1880s passenger station and an adjoining train shed, together totaling 750,000 square feet. The passenger station, one of the finest examples of Romanesque architecture in the country, was restored to its original appearance with the use of resplendent color and is now a brilliant setting for conferences and special events.
The 275-room hotel includes 13 original train cars that have been remodeled into thematic, turn-of-the-century suites. This adaptive reuse was designed to the Department of Interior-National Park Service’s Guidelines for Historic Preservation standards.
