The Columbia Club is a private clubhouse that allows members and non-members to stay in any one of its 86 guest rooms. It has been an Indianapolis staple since the late 19th century, and the current building that houses the club is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Each room here is uniquely decorated with antique furniture and artwork, but all digs feature a flat-screen TV and complimentary Wi-Fi access. Recent guests appreciated the charm of the property, but they say that rooms could use a renovation. Visitors are invited to enjoy meals with club members in any number of the 5 on-site restaurants. One of the most opulent spots, The Crystal Terrace, has views of Monument Circle and serves breakfast and a lunch buffet daily. Also, the Harrison Room is an elegant option for dinner.
