Ex-Holiday Inn Express, exactly

OK, so I haven't forgotten about Rochester's missing Holiday Inn Express.

Holidayinnexpress2 This is the deal I wrote about last week. The IHG corporate office says as of Dec. 30, Rochester no longer has a Holiday Inn brand hotel. However, it still does have other IHG brands.

The downtown hotel, formerly known Holiday Inn Express, confirmed that it is now called Rochester City Centre Hotel. That means it is independent and currently has no brand.

The owner and general manager were unavailable last week, but it sounds like the GM will be able to meet with me later this week to flesh this out a bit.

So maybe by the weekend, I'll be able to offer more details on this.

On a related note, USA Today's hotel and travel blog called Check-In written by Barbara De Lollis picked up my piece on this and referenced it in a posting on Monday.


At some point didn't they partly convert that to condos? Or am I remembering a different building.

Yes, several floors of this building are owned condos. Must have been in the 70s/80s because the ones I've been in are quite dated

I went by the old HI Express and looked at it from the Gonda Building (at least the top of it) and that building just looks hideous. Its like, I know its been cold, but at least give the old lettering a good power washing. Its just a huge eyesore now. Jeff any info forth coming on what may move in? Hopefully not a lower brand of chain.

Anyone notice the Holiday Inn Express billboards that are still up on North 52?
