Hotel's Favorite
5.0 of 5 bubbles
First time at this hotel- I tend to stay in different hotels when spending the night in Fort Wayne. This is right off I-69 in the western edge of the city. Convenient to downtown and the Coliseum. Being a Sunday in March, property was not busy.
Check in was easy. Room was clean. Water pressure weak. Typical HIE breakfast.
Nothing out of the ordinary. Their rates are usually slightly higher than other IHG hotels in region.

We stayed here on April 21, 2020 due to a needed surgery at Ft Wayne Orthopedic Hospital. Jill, the Area General Manger, was very helpful, considerate, and accommodating. Our stay was during the COVID-19 pandemic and the entire staff was amazing and compassionate to fit our needs. We were able to have the to-go breakfast and a sanitized place to stay during the day while a member of our travel party had his surgery. The room was very clean and the beds were very comfortable. I highly recommend this location!

I stayed overnight in February 2020. Before I even arrived at the hotel I received a text indicating that my room had been chosen for me based on my IHG member profile requests.
Upon arrival at the hotel I was warmly-welcomed and on my way up to my room in short order by a wonderful customer service-oriented staff member.
After spending a short time in my room the phone rang. It was the front desk calling, asking if the room was what I had expected.
I have to say that the management of this hotel are going above and beyond to ensure that their guests feel special.
Thank you very much for your hospitality. Well done.

We were expecting an excellent stay based on the reviews, but I was disappointed on what we found upon arriving at the hotel—garbage cans overflowing outside and in the lobby and litter and crumbs all along the third floor hallway.

Our room appeared to have been recently remodeled and smelled of bleach, which is oddly comforting in the midst of a pandemic. Some of the remodeling seemed to lack thoughtful design. Where one would expect a toilet paper holder, we found an oddly placed towel bar. When we wanted to call the front desk to ask where to find a light switch for over-the-bed lighting, we found a phone but no cord. The staff told us that many guests have trouble figuring out how to turn off that light—seems like a design flaw.

The breakfast was adequate given COVID restrictions, but the bananas looked several days old.

My sister and I came to town to spend time with our father receiving hospice care. We had reserved an extended stay suite at another hotel where we had had a good experience several years ago, but when we checked in there during a downpour discovered it was awful now. We came to Holiday Inn Express and they gave us a discounted rate for Parkview, which was greatly helpful since we wound up staying for two weeks. Everyone treated us with incredible kindness and respect and made this difficult situation much easier. From Bobbie’s tasty breakfasts to Amanda, Nate and Katori giving us a great rate and answering our questions to kind and efficient housekeeping by Rock and the rest of the 4th floor team—everyone on staff was very kind. They even gave us a sympathy card and flowers when our dad passed away. We’re incredibly appreciative of how much they eased a couple of very difficult weeks.

Beds are comfy, rooms are clean, and the staff is very friendly and welcoming. Dove bathroom products are nice and the environmentally-friendly refillable pump bottles have replaced the single-use minis. Breakfast was a nice variety of items. They were out of coffee but the woman at the front desk quickly made a new pot when I asked. This is our favorite place to stay in Fort Payne.

We were on Ft Wayne for a funeral. We were all pretty somber facing this challenge during the holidays. But then there was this place! The staff was so awesome! Friendly, efficient, helpful and knowledgeable. The check in was seamless! Miss Toni at breakfast was fantastic! She helped with dietary restrictions. Checkout was fast and the person even told me to check back if I needed to stay another night due to inclement weather. Thank you for the hospitality!

We stopped here on our way from Wisconsin to New York. It was conveniently located, and we chose it because of the pool and hot tub, even though it was a little overpriced. The staff were friendly and helpful. The room was clean and spacious. My husband used the pool and hot tub and said it seemed well maintained, except for there being only two working jets in the hot tub. I wasn't too impressed with the breakfast, there was a sufficient variety of food but the quality wasn't quite there. Overall it was an adequate place to stay. I'm not sure I would come back, it was a little overpriced for what was offered.

I would like to start by apologizing to you for the inconvenience you encountered after your stay. We appreciate that you brought this to our attention.

This Hotel has a great location, friendly staff, and clean rooms. What else can you ask for? I have been in many IHG hotels lately that seem like they are just "going through the motions" and have lost their focus on customer satisfaction and continuous improvement. That is definitely not the case with HIE Ft Wayne. Great night's rest in a wonderful, friendly environment!

Hi. Actually I did not see a shuttle at either of the Holiday Inn Express properties we recently stayed in Fort Wayne. I would guess the Holiday Inn at the Coliseum has a shuttle. As IHG Reward members we always call the front desk with questions.

What kind of breakfast is served? Continental? Buffet? Thank you!
Answer from Danny H

Holiday Inn Express Breakfast are very standard across the country. They serve eggs (alternate between scrambled, cheese omelette, salsa filled omelette), sausage (pork and turkey), sometimes bacon, biscuits, gravy, self-make pancakes (actually pretty good), some have whole fruit, juice, coffee, cinnamon rolls, then all the continental breakfast foods (i.e. cold & hot cereal, toast, bagels, muffins, toast, hard boiled eggs) Hope that helps
