No one's really sure where the term "Hoosier" originated, but a vacation in the Hoosier state capital is certain to be fun. With six very distinct districts, the Indianapolis hotel that's right for you depends on what you want to do.
The city is best known as the Racing Capital of the World, thanks to the century-old Indianapolis Motor Speedway, which hosts the Indy 500 , Brickyard 400, and other major octane-fueled events. Fans of the Indy Racing League and other racing circuits pack out surrounding Indianapolis hotels during key events, but it's a popular area to stay year-round as a racing hall of fame and museum are here, too.

Indianapolis is also big on basketball, hosting the men's and women's NCAA basketball tournaments every five years, and housing the NCAA headquarters and Hall of Champions. The line-up of hotels in Indianapolis near White River State Park put you close to the sporting action as well as nearby museums, gardens, and the zoo.
It's not all sports, as Broad Ripple Village and its diverse eateries, Monument Circle at Massachusetts Avenue, Fountain Square, and the entertainment filled Wholesale District offer plenty to see and do. Each district provides a wide variety of cheap Indianapolis hotels and luxury accommodations, making your stay here a memorable one.
