Eleven years after opening their doors, the Holiday Inn Express in Vandalia held another celebration on Thursday evening, with a ribbon cutting and open house to celebrate the vast renovations done to the facility. A brief ceremony kicked off the celebration with words from RLP Development President and CEO Robert Plummer, Vandalia Mayor Rick Gottman and R.P. Lumber Vice President Jason Plummer. Tours were given of the new streamlined rooms of the hotel and Jason Plummer says he believes they have given Holiday Inn Express Manager Sally Emerick and her staff a great new place in which to draw people to Vandalia.
Other renovations to the hotel include a whole new front desk area as well as a new breakfast area and Great Room and a new business center.
