A new four-story hotel is being proposed just south of the Ritz Charles event center in Carmel.

The 56,445-square-foot Hyatt Place Hotel will have 90 rooms and be at approximately 12000 N. Meridian Street.

The plans show pedestrian connectivity to the Ritz Charles, and it is expected to share an entrance/exit onto Illinois Street from the site.

Located to the south of this project is land owned by IU Health Hospital that will someday be additional parking for the hospital and possibly additional medical office buildings, according to a report by city planners.

One Carmel resident wrote a letter to city planners asking that they consider the heights of walls and landscaping to prevent headlights from hotel guests’ cars from shining into the nearby neighborhood.
