Roedel Companies' Holiday Inn Express & Suites in Merrimack named Renovation of the Year by InterContinental Hotels Group
September 26, 2013 - Front Section
The property, a former Fairfield Inn, was renovated to better suit the needs of business travelers and was reopened as a Holiday Inn Express & Suites in November 2012. The multi-million dollar renovation yielded updated guestrooms and bathrooms, a modernized lobby, expanded business center and new Express Start Breakfast Bar. A fitness center, outdoor pool and patio area were also added to the property. The building's traditional New England exterior was preserved while landscaping and a portico were constructed to enhance its faÃ§ade.
The hotel is owned/operated by Roedel Cos. ROK Builders, the hotel construction affiliate of Roedel Cos., oversaw the renovation. RGH Hospitality, the hotel management subsidiary of Roedel Cos., is running the hotel. Group One Partners, Inc. served as architect, RSJ Associates as interior designer, and Kahn & Bayer as structural engineer.
"We were able to completely revitalize the hotel from top to bottom by improving the property's architecture and design scheme," said David Roedel, partner of Roedel Cos. "The Holiday Inn Express & Suites gives visitors to the area a new option with tremendous value."
