Constructed in 2000, the Indianapolis Marriott-Downtown is the largest hotel in Indianapolis with 616 rooms at a cost of $60 million. The 22-story facility boasts the city’s largest hotel ballroom in addition to 40,000 square feet of meeting space. The Marriott is connected via a walkway to the Indiana Convention Center and RCA Dome.
There were several different funding sources and owners involved in this project. The hotel was constructed on a tight, urban site with heavy traffic volume adjacent to the site, therefore, creating a complex construction process.

Browning was engaged by the City of Indianapolis to represent its interests in this complex project. We helped the city maximize the use of public funds through value engineering. The project met all budgetary and schedule constraints. The facility has helped the City of Indianapolis capture additional convention business.
