The Adam’s Mark Hotel Indianapolis has become the Wyndham Indianapolis West Hotel.

Scranton, Pa.-based Nexus Hospitality Management said it will hoist the new Wyndham signs this week, and an official grand reopening will follow in the fall.

Nexus purchased the area’s sixth-largest hotel in April from San Francisco-based Chartres Lodging Group LLC for an undisclosed price. The 407-room hotel is near Indianapolis International Airport at 2544 Executive Dr.

The property is the only hotel in Indiana to carry the Wyndham banner. New Jersey-based Wyndham Worldwide Corp. has more than 7,000 hotels around the world.

The new owners have updated public spaces and renovated guest rooms to include high-definition televisions, granite-tiled bathrooms, new desk chairs and bedding, and high-speed Internet access.

The fitness and business centers, as well as the meeting space, also are being renovated. The hotel has 35,000 square feet of meeting space and a restaurant called The Marker.

Chartres purchased the 35-year-old hotel in February 2008 as part of a five-property acquisition from St. Louis-headquartered HBE Corp. A planned $18 million renovation was never completed.

Nexus officials said they were attracted to the Adam’s Mark due to its location and the strength of the Indianapolis market.

“We truly like the Indianapolis market and its central location within the Midwest,” Nexus Chief Operating Officer Michael Kearney said in a statement after the purchase in April. “This hotel is in a wonderful location, situated very close between a brand new airport and a thriving downtown.”

Nexus, which was formed in 2007, now owns two hotels. The other is the Radisson Lackawanna Station Hotel in Scranton. Kearney, who has 23 years in hotel management, said the vision is for Nexus to add two or three hotels to the fold annually.

  4. The question is, where could they build a new stadium? It seems in the past year, all the prime spots have been spoken for with potential projects. Maybe in the industrial wasteland area a block past Lucas Oil? I think it needs to be close to the core, if a new stadium is built.

  5. Aldi is generally a great shopping experience. Still, I'm sure YOU wouldn't want to shop there, which I consider a positive.
