After a paint job in 2007 and change in ownership, the Downtown Holiday Inn became the Clarion Hotel. New signage in the middle of March announced the change.
Then, on August 30, 2008, I reported that the sign had once again changed. In fact, the sign had a vinyl pull-over placed over it which simply said, “Fort Wayne Inn”. Â Â This had been the sign placed over the existing signage just after the sale of the Holiday Inn hotel. Â When I called the Hotel to inquire about the change, I was told the sign had been broken and that the Clarion people are very strict about such appearances.
Well, guess what? Â A new sign has popped up at the former Holiday Inn, then Fort Wayne Inn, then Clarion Hotel, and then Fort Wayne Inn again.
It’s too bad the colors don’t match the colors of the building a bit better. Hmmmm, perhaps they’ll repaint the building to something more appropriate to the the new logo? And is that supposed to be our three rivers? Inquiring minds really want to know.
