Chicago - First Hospitality, a national hotel operating and development company, assumed management of Hotel Indy in Indianapolis, Indiana. The property marks First Hospitality’s first hotel with owner group KennMar.

Since opening in 2021, Hotel Indy has become a cornerstone of luxury and hospitality in the heart of Indianapolis, with 90 keys, two restaurants, The Hulman and The Cannon Ball Lounge, and 1,200 square feet of state-of-the-art meeting space. The Hulman is open daily and serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner. The Cannon Ball Lounge is the newest rooftop bar in the area and serves Indy-inspired cuisine and cocktails, craft brew, and coffee.

The addition of Hotel Indy to our property portfolio is a meaningful step in our Indianapolis presence. We value our owner relationships, and look forward to this new partnership with KennMar, while growing our Indianapolis-based team, and further fostering our relationship with the Marriott brand. First Hospitality’s experience with F&B will prove fruitful with the hotel’s on-site restaurant & bar experiences. David Duncan, president and CEO of First Hospitality

With an expanding footprint in the Indianapolis market, brings additional job and growth opportunities to further develop First Hospitality’s world-class talent. First Hospitality is committed to a people-first culture and expanding their mission of “Our Journey Together” into new communities.
