Hotel Near Downtown Indianapolis Welcomes New Security Team

Indianapolis Marriott East Offers Safe, Quiet Stay Just 10 Minutes From Downtown

INDIANAPOLIS, IN--(Marketwire - Feb 27, 2013) -  Keeping guests happy is the number-one priority of the Indianapolis Marriott East, and part of that means keeping them safe. For guests of this Indianapolis, Indiana hotel, the thought of safety never crosses their mind -- all thanks to the hotel's expert security team, led by Steven Stalnaker of Stalnaker Security Services.

While downtown Indianapolis has recently witnessed a few incidents, this hotel near the Indianapolis Convention Center offers a location in the suburbs that's far away enough to be safe and quiet yet close enough to be convenient for whatever brings visitors to the city.

Stalnaker's onsite office allows him to oversee security throughout the property and gives guests peace of mind when booking their stay at this Indianapolis pet-friendly hotel. Stalnaker, a present-day reserve deputy marshal, brings years of experience to the hotel, including 30 years of contract security management, 25 years in law enforcement and 24 years with the Marion County sheriff's office, where he remains deputized. He has been a consultant to the Indiana Homeland Security Director and provides security to a professional NFL team, Landmark Properties, The Precedent Office Park, Lockerbie Marketplace and Cassidy Turley. At the Indianapolis Marriott East, Stalnaker combines police and security personnel for patrols.

Professional security lets guests of these Indianapolis hotel suites rest easy, but it's not the only thing that makes a stay here relaxing. Accommodations were designed for comfort with luxuriously appointed beds, spa-quality bathroom amenities and a 37-inch flat-screen TV. Working guests will find everything they need to be productive, including a desk, coffee/tea service and high-speed Internet access. When it's time to unwind, a fitness center and indoor heated pool offer an escape from the day.
