Construction begins on Holiday Inn Express in Fulton

Construction is under way on the four-story, 76-room Holiday Inn Express Hotel and Suites on South Adams Street in Fulton, near Fred’s Pharmacy. Originally slated to open in late 2009, the near-constant rainy weather of summer and fall have pushed the completion date to May 27. When it opens, the hotel will feature a heated indoor pool, large conference room, valet parking, two bedroom suites and extended stay rooms. The hotel represents an investment of approximately $6 million and will employ more than 20 people when it opens.
