Browning and Dora Hotel Company Unveil Design for Hotel Nickel Plate

Hotel Nickel Plate, a Tapestry Collection by Hilton Hotel in Downtown Fishers' Nickel Plate District

Browning Investments and Dora Hotel Company unveiled the design renderings for the new Hotel Nickel Plate, a Tapestry Collection by Hilton hotel set to break ground this fall. The renderings were approved as part of the Nickel Plate Review Committee. The previously announced project, developed by Browning and Dora Hotel Company will bring a 5-story, 116-room high-end, boutique hotel to Fishers’ downtown Nickel Plate District. The Hotel Nickel Plate will feature a full-service restaurant and bar on the first floor and Nickel Plate Trail access.

Drawing inspiration from the historical setting of the hotel, the striking design pays homage to the Nickel Plate Railroad. Hotel Nickel Plate will maintain its individual spirit, offering guests an experience that is approachable and familiar as well as different from other hotels in the area. Browning and Dora Hotel Company curated the Tapestry Collection by Hilton for this site due to customer and owner demand for an original upscale hotel that caters to guests seeking reliability and value in their independent hotel choices. In addition, each stay is backed by the reassurance of the Hilton name as well as its unmatched commercial engine and award-winning Hilton HHonors program.

The hotel is part of a master development by Browning announced in December 2018, which includes the new 6-story, 180,000 square foot First Internet Bank Headquarters, Nickel Plate Station, a 237-unit multi-family development constructed in partnership with  CRG Residential featuring first-floor retail and resident amenities, and the rehabilitation of legacy buildings in downtown Fishers.

The Nickel Plate District is part of the Fishers 2040 comprehensive plan which reimagines Fishers’ downtown area as a sustainable, pedestrian-friendly, downtown city core where residents and visitors live, work, and play.
