I visited this hotel while attending a huge basketball tournament with my son... We travel quite a bit with sports and have a "normal" routine when playing out of town. After playing 3-4 games per day, you need to wash the stinky, sweaty uniforms. This hotel has ONE washer and ONE dryer for a six floor hotel. Are you kidding?... More

This is a nice hotel, though the beds were a bit hard for my individual preference. The only staff we dealt with were the clerk at the desk and the gal who brought much-appreciated towels to the pool area, and both were friendly and helpful. The room is nicely arranged, with a walk-in shower that would be good for those... More

We stayed 5 days at the Holiday Inn due to it's location. While the hotel is clean and the service friendly, the hotel is mediocre. The price seems high for the value. The food in the restaurant is no better than fast food. The toilet paper is low quality. Other amenities were ok.

Convenient to everything Fort Wayne especially the Coliseum, try the in-house restaurant, rooms are quiet, place is spotless, staff is helpful, internet connection good. Use this site for crashing after the Coliseum event or just a weekend with the loved ones.

I want to start by saying this hotel staff is AMAZING, especially the event coordinator (catering sales manager) and the event wait staff. My weekend started by checking in with a VERY friendly and inviting front desk clerk. He answered all my questions, guided me to my room, and made sure I knew him and the staff were available if...

We inquired about the rates and was told they do honor AAA and was quoted $129 for the nite. When we signed the credit card charge it said $154 and the clerk told us this was including the tax on the $129 rate. In the morning a bill under our door said $175 was charged to our card.

We stayed two nights in conjunction with a Convention that had been booked a year in advance. The elevators were not working and for a group of seniors, this was not good. We had one breakfast at the hotel which was average, service was slow and disorganized. They were not staffed well and we had trouble even getting coffee. We... More
