The 600-room Holiday Inn on the Bay San Diego
Undergoing a $6 million Renovation

SAN DIEGO,  Calif. (April 17, 2007)  -  The 600-room Holiday Inn on the Bay San Diego has begun a $6 million renovation to its guest rooms and meeting facilities in order to provide business, leisure and convention attendees modern amenities and upgraded services. The Holiday Inn on the Bay is owned by FelCor Lodging Trust and managed by IHG.  Tony Lovoy serves as the property’s Vice President of Operations and General Manager. 

The scope of the hotel’s transformation includes all new soft goods in each guest room, newly tiled bathroom floors, and new bathroom fixture and lighting package.  287 bathrooms will receive a complete bathroom floor plan make over, including replacement of the tub/shower units with a tiled walk in shower unit, an expanded bath entry and reconfigured vanity and dressing area.

The 10,384 square foot Pacific Ballroom will be complemented with an expansion of the Foyer allowing for larger pre-function events. The addition of a permanent board room including ergonomic chairs, internet access and luxurious appointments will cater to the small meeting event planners. 

Already completed is the Cardio Work Out facility, boasting state-of-the-art treadmill and elliptical equipment overlooking a newly renovated outdoor pool.

The Holiday Inn on the Bay continues to offer complimentary transportation to San Diego International Airport and scheduled service to the San Diego Zoo, San Diego Convention Center and popular Gaslamp Quarter. 

The hotel features three restaurants on property including, Ruth’s Chris Steak House famous for serious steak and sizzling personality; Elephant & Castle, which offers a combination of British Classics and North American favorites coupled with a list of over 100 beers and an extensive list of Scotch whiskeys; and Hazelwood’s Waterfront Deli featuring a casual setting or sandwich on the go.
