The Best Experience
Megan from the Crowne Plaza was the first vendor we met with and she set the bar so high no one else even came close to matching it. Incredibly responsive, which made us feel VERY well taken care of and completely secure in the process. The venue itself is GORGEOUS and perfect for what we were looking for: classic and timeless. The structure has beautiful details, which means we really didn't need to add many extra details. It was exactly what we were looking for!Sent on 07/03/2019

I don’t have anything but amazing things to say about Crowne Plaza Downtown Indy. My husband and I got married in the Illinois Ballroom, which overlooks Illinois Street downtown. The venue itself was beautiful but the people and service were remarkable. Casey Perry was our Wedding Coordinator; she was always responsive, kind and helpful. She personally sees to ensuring the wedding décor is setup the way you intended. Devin was our wedding day coordinator, ensuring the day of the wedding everything goes smoothly. Devin went above and beyond his responsibilities. The servers and bartenders were fantastic as well. It was so clear the entire venue wanted to make this day as special as they could.Sent on 02/09/2019

My husband and I had the best experience with the Crowne Plaza. I love old buildings, and the Illinois Street Ballroom was the perfect fit for us. It wasn't overwhelmingly grand, but had the perfect view of the cityscape (even our church was within sight), and the magical Christmas feel (they provided us with a large Christmas tree in the room). It provided the perfect old time, intimate feel among the city lights. Couldn't have been better! The staff and Casey were wonderful to work with!Sent on 12/18/2018
