INDIANAPOLIS — Four shipping containers are being transformed into private, luxury hotel suites.

The Tiny Urban Escapes Boutique Hotel is the brainchild of Indianapolis native Robin Staten.

“I can’t speak more highly of the west side of Indianapolis - it bred, born and raised me. So, I am excited today to bring something home," Staten, the hotel's CEO and Founder, said.

Groundbreaking was held Friday on the city's west side off of Michigan Street near Belmont Avenue. Construction is expected to be complete in late summer 2022.

Advance reservations will start Monday and an overnight stay will cost between $179-$329 per night.
