Conrad Indianapolis says it has reached an agreement with Indiana entrepreneurs to re-open the hotel spa, reports Inside INdiana Business. Todd and Cindy Leuck will invest $400,000 to launch The Spa & Salon at Conrad, which is expected to open by the end of March. In September, Spa Chakra filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy.
The Leucks are "second generation hair designers" from Lafayette with more than 25 years of experience in the hair industry, according to their website.
This Indianapolis Observer finds it odd that the first "purpose-built" Conrad in the entire chain has been without a spa for this long, and also that it was unable to maintain its own restaurant on site (Capital Grille is a chain franchise). These are probably two of the reasons it wasn't able to get five-star status in AAA (or any other) ranking scheme.
