What’s the most recommended romantic resort in Indy or Bloomington? We’re looking to get away.
Debby: Bloomington doesn’t exactly have “resorts” in the downtown or nearby-ish areas although we do have some lovely B&Bs (like the Grant Street Inn) and newer hotels (like the Hyatt Place). In Indianapolis, searching Trip Advisor for hotels tagged as “romantic” brings up hotels like the Conrad, Le Meridien, the JW Marriott, and the Alexander. However, there are rarely any “best” places because I think it depends on what helps you and your partner(s) feel more romantic. As a colleague said to me years ago, “some people like their sex dirty” and if you want things on the rougher side, you might look for cheap motels. If you’re more the rose petals and jacuzzi type, that too will influence what kind of hotel you look for. Some people are looking for a total experience and might want to see a show or walk through a downtown park and then wind their way back to their hotel, in which case you might prefer something downtown and walkable. If you’re an IU alum and looking to relive your college days, you might prefer drinking downtown and then stumbling over to the IMU. As they say: choose your own adventure.
