This picture 📸 really doesn't do the beauty of this ceiling justice. I've been in the Grand Union Hall at the Crowne Plaza a couple of times now for events and each time it takes my breath away. * Here's a fun fact: Grand Union Hall was America's first 👍"union station." The overall structure was built in 1888 and has been recognized as one of the finest Romanesque Revival-styled structures in America. What you see in this picture was built in the early 1900's.😍 * You kind of have to see it for yourself, but the Grand Union Hall has a ton of history and the Crowne Plaza has train cars 🚉 for Hotel Suites. It's pretty neat! #romanesque #unionstation #1900s #architecturephotography #architecture
Surely passengers boarding their train at Indianapolis’ Union Station had no idea that that same terminal would be converted into the Crowne Plaza Indianapolis’ pride and joy. Built in 1888, this historic spot was the nation’s first Union Station and played temporary host to big names such as Theodore Roosevelt, Woodrow Wilson, Franklin D. Roosevelt, Harry Truman and Dwight D. Eisenhower. Today, the Crowne Plaza Indianapolis Downtown Union Station has undergone several renovations and acts as a majestic spot for weddings, banquets and events with its glorious stained glass and intricate 60-foot barrel ceiling acting as the perfect backdrop.
If nautical nonsense be something you wish, be sure to book a stay in SpongeBob’s iconic pineapple home at Nickelodeon Hotels & Resorts Punta Cana. With two bedrooms and three baths, this fruity lodging option offers modern amenities and accommodations with a dose of Bikini Bottom flair. This pineapple may not be under the sea like our spongy friend’s, but it does come decked out with a signature infinity pool, an outdoor shower and a freestanding tub which is basically the next best thing for us landlubbers.
