Built in 1905, the Looking Glass Inn is located in the heart of the Old Northside, an area that was home for the principal leaders of Indianapolis at the turn of the century. Elizabeth Gates, the widow of a wholesale grocery merchant, erected this Free Classic style Mansion and lived here until 1907. Special packages available.
A romantic setting ~ Decorated in deep rose tones and Victorian-era antiques, the spacious Rose Room includes a decorative tiled fireplace . A favorite with newlyweds and anniversary couples. King-size bed or 2 twin beds & a 2 person Jacuzzi tub and shower

we had a lovely stay in the blue room while in town for a wedding. staff was very friendly & helpful even as we arrived much later that we expected. the breakfast was delicious & we had the pleasure of eating with some interesting & quite enjoyable company. i would definitely recommend checking this little spot out - absolutely a much better value than staying in a hotel downtown, and within striking distance.

My partner and I stayed at Looking Glass over a weekend. The inn is in a perfect location on a quiet tree lined street of older homes and apartment buildings. Walking distance to Mass Ave. restaurants and bars and also to downtown, monument circle area. Friendly innkeeper and yummy breakfast both mornings. We never used our car the whole weekend.

This is a truly stunning B&B, with mission antiques, beautiful paintings, and a very homey/cozy atmosphere. I attended a wedding downtown, and needed an oasis during my visit in Indy--really liked having this safe and sweet place to "land" and was able to do work on both the upper deck and beautiful open porch both mornings...Although the shower was awesome, the mattress wasn't great and because I'm gluten-free, the breakfast was limited, but the owner made me a fresh pot of coffee after a very long night (returning back from Chicago from a Cubs game--) upon my afternoon arrival, which was very kind. I would definitely recommend this sweet sanctuary in the city.

I was a little disappointed in the breakfast. I was expecting more, but breakfast is what I would get in a hotel. Nothing was hot just cereal, bagels, and muffins. Room was very clean though. Nice whirlpool in bathroom.

The Villa was very nice. We were pleasantly surprised by its location. Extra services offered was a definite plus. Look forward to coming back again.

I stayed at this room 5/12/14-5/14/14 and it was great. The first night the outside temp. dropped and the room was cold. The bedding coverlet was perfect for me it kept me warm all night thru. Needless to say, it was a great night sleep! The Looking Glass Inn is clean and beautiful with fine details. The daily breakfast is delish with Chef Kathy at hand. Overall, I would recommend this "Looking Glass Inn" to anyone who want comforts and be near downtown too. Cheers!

We were at the Villa but it was excellent. I think that it is owned by the same people as the Looking Glass Inn.
