Hilton Indianapolis is a hotel in Indianapolis, Indiana. The building was completed in 1971 and has 18 floors with a total of 332 rooms.[2] The Hilton was formerly the tallest hotel in the city; the JW Marriott surpassed it when it was completed in 2011.

The location was formerly the site of the Traction Terminal Building, which was a covered depot for the interurban lines in Indianapolis. A 10-story office building adjoined the depot.[1]

The Hilton Hotel is built of structural concrete with a limestone facade. The building was originally constructed as the headquarters of Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Indiana (now WellPoint), which vacated the building in the 1990s. It was refurbished into a hotel configuration and opened as an Adam's Mark Hotel in May 2000. In August 2004 it was rebranded as a Hilton Hotel.[1]
