a 121-room Holiday Inn Express and a 110 room Hampton Inn
Indianapolis (October 20, 2008) – InterContinental Hotels Group, one of the world's largest hotel groups by number of rooms, announces today the official opening of a new 121-room Holiday Inn Express in Indianapolis, IN. The newly converted property is located on the northwest side of Indianapolis, at the W. 71st Street exit, off I-465. The Holiday Inn Express Park 100 is located at 7220 Woodland Drive.
“We’ve transformed the hotel from top to bottom, from landscaping to rooftop,” Jeffrey Brown, CEO of Schahet Hotels, Inc., said. The hotel management and development company operates hotel properties in central Indiana and upstate New York, and owns and manages the new Holiday Inn Express. Guests at the Holiday Inn Express Park 100 will experience a comfortable and modern environment with innovative and preferred guest upgrades to ensure a productive stay while traveling for business or leisure. “More than $2.5 million has been invested to convert this property from a Hampton Inn to a Holiday Inn Express. Holiday Inn Express is modern, fresh, clean, and a perfect fit for the location,” Brown said.
The hotel is in Park 100, central Indiana’s largest industrial and office park, located across from the Intech Technology Park. The Holiday Inn Express has excellent highway access and is close to popular destinations such as downtown Indianapolis, the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, Eagle Creek State Park, and Indianapolis International Airport. However, location is only one of the many exceptional traits of the hotel. Brown said, “Top of the line service, comfort and convenience are available for an enjoyable and relaxing guest experience at the hotel.”
Gary Schahet, Chairman of Schahet Hotels, is very confident in the appeal
of this redesigned hotel to a wide cross-section of travelers. He
said, "Due to the opportune location of the hotel as well as the personalized
service our staff provides, we will be able to easily accommodate all types
of visitors to our ever-growing city. The property looks forward to continued
success as a hotel leader on the Northwest side of Indianapolis. "
The hotel is owned and operated by locally based Schahet Hotels, and is located in Park 100, central Indiana's largest industrial and office park, across from Intech Technology Park, just minutes from downtown Indianapolis, Eagle Creek State Park, Indianapolis Motor Speedway, O'Reilly Raceway Park and the Indianapolis International Airport. Hotel guest room amenities include complimentary wireless HSIA, over-sized desk & comfortable ergonomic desk chair, 32” HDTV's, pillow-top mattresses and duvets, granite vanity counter tops, and generous size rooms. Additionally, guest will appreciate the hotel's business center, 800 square foot meeting room, indoor pool and hot tub, and the 24 hour fitness room.
“Hampton Hotels combine quality, service, comfort and plenty of value-added extras, making Hampton the brand of choice in the marketplace today,” said Kelly Eldridge, hotel general manager. “Providing clean, comfortable rooms and outstanding guest service is a top priority for our hotel staff and one reason we will be highly competitive in our local market.”
“We believe this Hampton Inn will be one of the leading hotels not only in its market, but the brand as well”, says Jeffrey Brown, CEO of Schahet Hotels Inc. “Every opportunity to enhance our guests' stay has been met by offering high quality beds, the newest technology in TV’s, large bathrooms stocked with quality amenities, free wired and wireless high speed Internet and a hot breakfast every morning. In addition, the Perfect Mix Lobby gives guests a place to socialize with their travel companions and business associates, make new acquaintances, or just expand outside their guest room to work in a comfortable environment. The lobby features a large community table, a 42” and a 37” TV, soft seating and café seating. Our Jump Start Fitness Center has an innovative look and feel, with core and balance training equipment to provide a quality experience for our guests. The floor is a state-of-the-art rubber “pedestal” tile made specifically to perform in the fitness environment with superior sound and shock absorption.”
Schahet Hotels currently operates a total of five additional hotels in the Indianapolis market, with two more hotels under construction near the new Indianapolis International Airport, bringing their total portfolio of Indianapolis hotels to eight. The Hampton Inn & Suites Airport will open next month in the Ameriplex Office Park, making it the first and closest hotel to open at the new Indianapolis International Airport.
