White Lodging is proud to be changing skylines across the country.
When Indianapolis won the bid to host the 2012 Super Bowl – worth an estimated $400 million of economic impact – we were a vital partner with our commitment to build the spectacular JW Marriott Indianapolis, complete with 1,0005 guestrooms and suites and over 105,000 square feet of meeting and event space.
The hotel opened in 2011, soaring into the skyline as the largest JW Marriott in the Americas. It serves as the city’s premier convention headquarters hotel, with a walkway to the Indiana Convention Center and anchoring the 2,200+ room Marriott IndyPlace Convention Center Hotel Complex.
Our F&B expertise shines at the property too, as guests enjoy hand-crafted Italian cuisine at Osteria Pronto or catch a game at the high-tech High Velocity sports bar.
A testament to White Lodging’s Sales and Marketing muscle, the JW opened with 500,000 definite room nights already on the books, a pre-opening sales effort more than three years in the making.
The hospitality industry took notice of this unique project – awarding it the Full Service Opening of the Year for Marriott International and the Lodging Investment Summit Development of the Year for 2011. Travelers continue to recognize “Big Blue” as well, as the hotel was named the #1 Hotel in the Midwest for 2016 in Conde Nast’s Reader’s Choice rankings. Since opening, the JW Indy has consistently ranked in the top 10 JW hotels worldwide for both guest and event planner satisfaction.
