Our room was great beds were comfy and clean. Could hear adjacent rooms though. If I was looking for quiet and romantic get away for hubby and myself I would consider somewhere else but good for families or event stay.

Super close to the coliseum with free shuttling to your event. Clean, and nice amenities, lounge (bar area) great for visiting. Staff was very friendly, as we found everyone in Fort Wayne seemed friendly.

I live in Ft Wayne, but went to the restaurant for dinner. Their special that night was Haddock. It was very good and came with a great tartar sauce. The cole slaw was also very good and creamy. Had a piece of cheesecake with strawberries for dessert. Great experience overall.

When I stay in Fort Wayne I will only stay here. New and always clean. The staff here is always friendly and professional. Especially Jacob from the front desk. He is always welcoming and is very efficient at his job!

Honestly, we were really happy with the hotel overall. Comfortable beds, lovely bar, etc. Here's the issue. . . it was a Saturday night and there was a wedding, and our 2nd floor room was right over and close to the banquet hall. Our room was shaking due to the music. I let it go, as it was only 6-7pm,...

We were in town for a conference, and this was one of the suggested hotels. The location was very convenient for us. Check in was quick, and the front desk clerk was friendly and helpful. The rooms are standard fare. The beds are extremely high, which makes it tricky for shorter guests to get in and out of them. Our...

The hotel was clean and comfortable. The bed was actually really comfortable. My main issue with the hotel was the management. The manager Brian was very rude over the phone when trying to make changes prior to check in, and apparently we weren't the only ones who had issues with him in the past. One woman my wife met at...

Where do I even begin! I go to Fort Wayne every year for the annual Vera Bradley outlet sale at the Coliseum. I am no amateur, I know Holiday Inn is right across the street therefore books up months before the other hotels. I called to book my stay for the 2017 outlet sale in December! A few days later...

Convenient to the Coliseum, comfortable and clean rooms. In fact everywhere was clean and quite impressive. No fridge in the room. Offered a shuttle to the Coliseum. The front desk staff was efficient and friendly. And the beds...OH THOSE BEDS! I would like to know what kind of mattresses they use. Had a GREAT night sleep!
