“Friendliest Hotel” Ann Arbor to Redo Every Guest Room, Lobby, and Exterior
ANN ARBOR, Mich. (Nov. 28, 2012) – The Holiday Inn Near the University of Michigan (hiannarbor.com), known as the friendliest and greenest hotel in Ann Arbor, today announced it has started a more than $4 million complete renovation.From the guest rooms, restaurant and ballroom to the lobby and exterior, all areas of the hotel will be renovated.
“Visitors love this hotel for its comfort, Guy Hollerin’s restaurant, the friendly atmosphere and proximity to the University, but it’s time for an update,” said Joe Sefcovic, general manager of the Holiday Inn Ann Arbor. “Since 1971, this hotel has been a north side landmark and when it’s done, guests may not recognize the hotel. We’re expanding the lobby and replacing carpet and furniture. Even the exterior will be updated. It’s all to further enhance our guests’ experiences.”
The renovating of the hotel’s indoor/outdoor pool and deck are already complete, and the work to overhaul the landscaping and corridors is underway. Next on the long list of improvements:
· Lobby renovation and expansion: all new flooring, furniture, ceiling, wall coverings, and new front desk
· Restaurant, bar: bar expansion, new carpets, porcelain floor and addition of a media lounge
· Exterior walls, windows and roof
· All guest rooms: art work, drapery, carpet, furniture, lighting
The hotel will remain open during the renovation, which is expected to be completed by July 2013 with guest comfort at the forefront while the work is in progress. For more information, visit hiannarbor.com or call (734) 769-9800 or toll-free (800) 800-5560.
