FORT WAYNE, Ind. (www.incnow.tv) - A familiar Fort Wayne hotel has a new name.

The Fort Wayne Marriott, 305 E. Washington Ctr. Rd., has changed its name to Hotel Fort Wayne, management announced in a statement.

The statement did not say why the change was made, but that Hotel Fort Wayne should operate as it had as Fort Wayne Marriott.

"We are very excited about this progression," Homer Sarem, general manager at the Hotel Fort Wayne, said in the release. "We look forward to welcoming past patrons of the Fort Wayne Marriott and new guest."

Hotel Fort Wayne is an 18,500-square foot building with 219 rooms, 3 suits and 11 meeting rooms. Red River Steakhouse, a restaurant inside the hotel, is still open, too.
