FORT WAYNE, Ind (Indiana's News Center)---On Monday December 29th Indiana's News Center ran a story about the Fort Wayne Hotel and Fun Dome closing its doors after a rough year.
However hotel officials continued booking rooms even for New Years Eve.
Now, many people are left out in the cold with no real explanation for what happened.
Because of our story the Manager of the Holiday Inn IPFW and Coliseum has decided to extend a helping hand to anyone who planned to spend New Years at the Fort Wayne Hotel and Fun Dome. The Holiday Inn will honor any rate that anyone was given at the Fun Dome.
Rob Evans, General Manager: Holiday Inn: " We saw it on your newscast because channel 21 carried the story 1st. Whatever rate you had offered at that other hotel we'll honor that rate and on top of that we're going to put our ballroom aside so people can come in and socialize and bring in games and they're going to get complimentary breakfast for 2 the next morning as well.
Whatever rate they have we're going to honor it. If it's a 50 dollar rate or a 100 dollar rate or whatever. The goal is to make sure that families have a chance to celebrate and rate is secondary to people having a nice time."
Guests at the Holiday Inn can enjoy some of the same amenities they would have at the Fort Wayne Fun Dome like an indoor swimming pool, hot tub, and a full service restaurant.
