Holiday Inn Express had to renovate to meet corporate brand standards, which seems simple enough. But simple it was not....the 1st and 2nd floors were completely renovated, an elevator shaft was added in the center of the existing building, a new front entrance was constructed, and a 3rd floor was added to the two-story building. The existing roof was removed and structural supports were added throughout the building to support the new third floor. All of this was accomplished while the hotel was able to continue to remain open to guests 24/7. And during the entire construction period, they received zero complaints from their guests.
