There’s a new place for visitors to Erie as a Holiday Inn opens in Summit Township.
After several years of planning, the new Holiday Inn is now located on Downs Drive.
Over the past ten years there has been a collaborative effort to develop business on Upper Peach Street.
A representative said that during the pandemic, many families are looking to drive vacations while choosing to visit Erie.
The representative said the 150-room hotel is in a great location for those traveling for business or leisure.
“There isn’t as much space or area to develop left by the Bayfront, so a lot of these people even go there for leisure activities. They always want to stay somewhere a little out of the way where you know it’s easier to park vehicles. There are more restaurants and stuff on Downs Drive as well as Peach Street, ”said Om Patel, development manager for Hawkeye Hotels.
The Holiday Inn also has amenities including a swimming pool and fitness center for guest use.
