The Atrium Hotel Alton is under new ownership.  The sale of former Holiday Inn on the Homer Adams Parkway was completed this week, and the new owners are already making plans for upgrades that they hope will allow them to bring back the Holiday Inn name.

One of the first issues will be to address the abundance of flies, according to Brett Stawar, president of the Alton Regional Convention and Visitor’s Bureau.

Stawar tells The Big Z there are already plans underway to remodel all of the rooms, and a prototype room will be built soon, showing off the vision of the new owners.  He cautions this could be a lengthy process to complete renovations and regain Holiday Inn or similar branding.
