Hotel and Travel
Known as the Crossroads of America, Indianapolis is within a day’s drive of half of the U.S. population. Indy’s highly rated airport is just 15 minutes from downtown. The Indianapolis International Airport has been named the best airport in North America in 2015, 2014, 2013, 2012, and 2010 by Airports Council International.
The JW Marriott Indianapolis, the site of the AAOE 2017 Annual Conference, is conveniently located in heart of downtown Indianapolis. The hotel rises 33 stories above the city, offers 1,005 guest rooms, and boasts one of the largest ballrooms in the world! It was recently named one of the 50 best hotels in the world by Conde Nast Traveler.
Recognizable by the brilliant blue glass façade that stands out in the skyline, the JW Marriott is steps away from Lucas Oil Stadium, Victory Field, and the Indiana Convention Center to the south. Steps away to its north are the Eiteljorg Museum of Native American and Western Art, the Indiana State Museum and further west are the NCAA Hall of Champions, White River State Park, and the Indianapolis Zoo. East of the hotel are city blocks filled with entertainment, dining, and shopping including the Circle Centre Mall.
By being connected to the Indiana Convention Center, the hotel provides the opportunity to walk to numerous downtown locations without even having to step outside!
