You may have heard of Indianapolis as the home of the Indy 500, which is the world’s biggest single-day sporting event and one of the most incredible car races to watch. Of course, we have a whole carload of race car puns that we could use here, but we’ll spare you and try our best to stay on track. Though Indianapolis may make you think of the black-and-white checkered flag at the beginning of a NASCAR race, we’re here to introduce a different kind of pattern and a fabulous choice for Indianapolis vacation rentals: Stay Alfred at The Argyle. The newest addition to our Indy portfolio boasts stylish accommodations, a lovely community courtyard, and a fantastic location in the historic Chatham-Arch neighborhood. What exactly makes this building a winner?
Charming spaces that ooze historic flair
Like all of our Stay Alfred travel apartments, the stylish digs at Stay Alfred at The Argyle include all the comforts of home, like a full kitchen, comfy living room, and at least one private bedroom. But unlike some of other properties, this one has a beautiful combination of modern amenities and historic flair. With wrought-iron railings and brick accent walls, these apartments remind us of the elegant homes in New Orleans’ French Quarter, but with new furniture and essentials like fast WiFi and freshly laundered linens. You’ll love the funky character and unique sense of place at Stay Alfred at The Argyle.
A homey building that makes you want to stay awhile
It’s not only the individual units at Stay Alfred at The Argyle which are packed with character; the building also has plenty of personality. From the brick facade to the exterior corridors, you’ll feel welcome from the moment you arrive. While the building doesn’t have an elevator, it does have a cozy outdoor courtyard with a shady pagoda and charcoal grill, so you can enjoy a cookout on a sunny summer day. Pro tip: take a wander over to Indianapolis City Market to find some local meats or veggies to throw on the grill. Or maybe even bring your morning coffee outside to wake up with the sounds of birds chirping. In addition to a courtyard, the building amenities include bike racks (why not explore Indy on two wheels?) and secure controlled access doors.
Discover the exciting Chatham-Arch neighborhood
Though we could wax poetic about the building itself, one of our favorite parts of Stay Alfred at The Argyle is its prime location in Chatham-Arch. This delightful district is set slightly northeast of Downtown Indy, so it’s close enough to all the attractions but far enough away that you can enjoy an authentic, local atmosphere. It’s just a few blocks from the Indianapolis Canal Walk and the Indiana World War Memorial, so you can visit some of the top sights on foot.
Chatham-Arch is filled with culture, dining, and things to do - so much so that you might be tempted to extend your trip. Don’t miss icons like the Old National Centre theater and the Indianapolis City Market, but also be sure to dig a little deeper to experience some of the neighborhood’s hidden gems. After all that sightseeing, you’ll probably be hungry, so we recommend digging into some hearty German fare at The Rathskeller or sophisticated sushi at FortyFive Degrees, and you can keep your energy level high with a cup of joe from Kaffeine Coffee Co. or Coat Check Coffee.
Entertainment options abound, so your evening agenda can be as packed as the stadium at the Indy 500 - if you so choose. Listen to some live jazz at Chatterbox Jazz Club, try some local beers at St. Joseph Brewery, indulge in a prix fixe dinner at Vida, or laugh until your sides hurt at Crackers Comedy Club. Other Indianapolis highlights aren’t far away, like the Lucas Oil Stadium (home of the Colts) and Bankers Life Fieldhouse (home of the Pacers and hosts of big-name concerts) are both within a few minutes’ drive.
