University Place Hotel
Located at the heart of IUPUI’s campus, this hotel and conference center serves the hospitality needs of the university and surrounding medical community. The 1987 structure had fallen into a state of mechanical and structural disrepair and had lost its 4 Diamond rating in part because of its dated interior styling. Rowland restored luster to the hotel while maintaining a 55-percent occupancy rate during construction and meeting an aggressive schedule so the hotel would be open for the NCAA Final Four Tournament. As a result of the renovation, University Place once again has a 4 Star rating.
