This Hotel Has Changed Hands So Many Times Aug 04, 2008
I worked in this hotel off and on for about two years over a 7 year period. During that time the property changed hands on three different occasions. It started out as an investment property of the former world champion boxer, Larry Holmes, unfortunately putting family in management positions ran the hotel into the ground. My visiting relatives from Ohio once spent the night in our family room, despite having paid for a three-nights stay. Apparently, they didn't like sharing their room with roaches. Larry sold it and with a few renovations it quickly became a Holiday Inn, a few years later when the renovations had aged, the hotel could no longer meet the brand requirements of being a Holiday Inn and the company sold it to Clarion. With each sale the services and amenities got smaller and smaller.
When I worked the night shift, at least 10% of the clientele were 'working girls' and their 'pals'. This place was bulldozed last year, and a Raymour & Flanagan was put up in its place.
