Grand re-opening of Holiday Inn Express held

TROY — S&S Managed Hotels held a ribbon cutting event for the grand re-opening of the Holiday Inn Express in Troy on Thursday, Sept. 3. The event featured new and revitalized guestrooms and event spaces.

The event showcased the completion of a one-year long, $5 million construction and renovation project bringing 31 additional guestrooms and the full renovation of 65 original guestrooms to the Holiday Inn Express. With the assistance of long-time partners, ALE Architecture, who created the building design, Teresa Demco Designs, who handled the interior design, and Bracket Builders, who managed the entire project, Shoemaker and Steinke pumped new life into an already successful business anchored in Troy since 1998.

Additionally, the hotel’s public areas received complete updates to include a renewed fitness center with state-of-the-art exercise equipment, fresh flex spaces that will provide convenient and accessible spaces to meet, and a fresh outdoor space for dining and relaxing.

Shoemaker and Steinke, two of the original owners, are proud to have this IHG branded product within their portfolio and have always found tremendous success in Troy.

“Troy has always treated us well. We’re happy to have our beautiful product here and thrilled to have added dozens of jobs with project work over the past twelve months within this community,” Steinke said.

Vice President of Operations for S&S Managed Hotels Chris Dix reiterated that not only is the staff excited to get back to work, but that the strictest of cleanliness procedures are firmly in place with IHG’s ‘Way of Clean’ program to include rigorous cleaning and ‘sealed’ rooms that once totally disinfected, all guestroom doors are sealed with a sticker that is broken only by the guest upon entry.

“We want our guests to feel completely safe,” Dix said.

Dix added that while many hotels have severely scaled back many services, the Holiday Inn Express in Troy has found ways to keep the full-service experience alive and well.
