Super close to the coliseum with free shuttling to your event. Clean, and nice amenities, lounge (bar area) great for visiting. Staff was very friendly, as we found everyone in Fort Wayne seemed friendly.

The room was clean and the staff was nice. Just seems a little worn out. There are no amenities in the rooms such as fridges or microwaves. The internet barely works so make sure you are equipped with a hot-spot if you plan to do any work.

My husband and I recently stayed at his property while attending a Witchita Thunder vs. Fort Wayne Komets hockey game. We've been to Fort Wayne for hockey games a few time this past year but never stayed at this property. Since the hotel is conveniently located directly across the street from the IPFW Coliseum, we thought we would stay here...

I was assigned to stay at this Holiday Inn as part of a large group business trip. I found it very satisfactory, with no real complaints about the hotel itself. However the shuttle service left much to be desired; I called ahead, made an appointment to be picked up from my flight, and the shuttle wasn't there. After 15 minutes...

Not my favorite chain. No Coffee & Cream in lobby or Free Breakfast. Room dirty and smelled. Smoke detector had bag over it. Restaurant was slow and not worth the wait. Will avoid chain if possible. 2nd attempt..

At check in, the young man at the desk was superior in making us feel welcomed. At check out the young lady actually asked if I wanted her to go out to start our car up! It was below zero out and I jokingly inquired about a warm up service. Not knowing if I was serious, she responded that she...

We stayed the weekend for a youth hockey game. Hotel grounds looked good but there was snow so who knows. The lot was plowed and the walks were clear. Hotel was clean, room was nice. Lots of pillows and towels. I was recognized and greeted as a Gold Member which was nice compared to my last experience at a different...

When traveling on business, not having wifi access at a hotel I'm staying at is one of my biggest frustrations. I was not able to connect any of my devices to their wifi and they kept saying it must be my equipment. Funny thing is that they were the only place I had wifi issues during a 6 day business...

Very disappointed! I have stayed here before, and the facility is tastefully decorated and very clean. The check-in process was very quick and friendly. Past that the level of service tanked by everyone I had contact with. The internet never worked for a variety of reasons. All the staff would do was to refer you to an 800# based in...

Clean and friendly. Food at the restaurant was not that great. Had a hamburger and fries. Burger was actually quite gross. Maybe the rest of the menu was fine. Never did stay long enough. Rest of the property was good.
