Dora Brothers Plans Two Hotels Near New Indianapolis Stadium

. October 14, 2008

INDIANAPOLIS, IN, February 05, 2006. Demolition on several vacant warehouses west of the new Stadium here will begin this week, making way for two new hotels. Tim and Bob Dora of Dora Brothers Hospitality Corp. purchased a 2-acre parcel from the city for $2.2 million for their new hotels.

Tim Dora said city officials helped the company find and acquire the land after it was forced to sell its Comfort Inn at 530 S. Capitol Ave. under eminent domain laws. The hotel was in the footprint of the new stadium. The state paid the Dora's $12.8 million for the 143-room hotel.

The two new hotels- an eight-story, 113-suite Staybridge Suites and a six-story Comfort Suites Hotel with 135 rooms, both in the 500 block of West Street- are within walking distance of the stadium.

Dora Brothers owns hotels across Central Indiana, including in Fishers, Carmel and Plainfield. The company also owns the Best Western at 410 S. Missouri St., south of the RCA Dome, and is converting it into a Holiday Inn Express this summer.

Sales & Marketing: Promoting Peace of Mind

As the hotel industry transitions to a more familiar position, it is still necessary for hotels to emphasize in their marketing the health protocols they have implemented to ensure guest safety and wellness. Above all, guests need to be reassured that every precaution is being taken to safeguard their well-being. Additionally, there are other marketing strategies that hotels can implement as a way to boost their business. For example, neighborhood marketing is a tactic that relies heavily on appealing to local audiences. Incentives targeting locals can fulfill the craving that some people have for time away from home, but aren't ready to hop on a plane. Another viable strategy is to promote experiences in nature. After being stuck inside for so long, many people are looking for hotels to help them re-connect with the great outdoors. The June Hotel Business Review will focus on the marketing strategies that some hotels are adopting and how they are benefiting from them.
