The hotel in Indianapolis is undergoing a name change as the owner of the Star has changed the name to The Star hotel in an effort to improve its image in the city.
In an interview with the Indianapolis Star on Monday, Star CEO and Chairman John Stanton said the hotel had been known as The Star Hotel in Indianapolis since March 2018, but in November 2018 it changed the brand to Star Hotels and Resorts.
“It’s been a really long time,” Stanton said of the name change.
“We’ve been really passionate about it.”
Stanton said that although the hotel was a brand name that had been used for some time, it was time to give it a new name.
“We’re trying to do a little bit of a cultural shift in Indianapolis.
We’re trying something different.
I think it’s a good idea.
We have to have something to live up to.”
The hotel, located at the corner of Indiana State Street and Indiana Avenue, was a property of Indianapolis-based Star Hotel and Resort Corp (SHR) until recently.
The company owned the Star and the Star-branded hotels in Indianapolis, which had a combined capacity of about 3,000 guests.
The company announced in February that it had been purchased by Star Group LLC, a private investment group led by the Star’s founder, Jeff Koons.
Star Hotels was one of the few properties that remained open, although the Star had closed a number of other hotels, including the Star in Indianapolis and Star in San Diego, in February 2019.
The Star had also closed a portion of its hotel in Fort Worth, Texas.
In March, Star Group agreed to buy Star Hotals in a deal that valued the company at $8.5 billion, according to the Associated Press.
