Flies are no longer a problem at the Atrium Hotel in Alton and the facility is hosting an event later this week to celebrate. Hotel General Manager Patty Rotermund tells The Big Z the “Shoo-Fly Party” came about as a way for the hotel to poke fun at itself while recognizing the fact they are now pest free.

The event will run from 5 p.m. until 7 p.m Thursday at the hotel and Rotermund says they will feature drink and appetizer specials throughout the day. She also says other renovations to the facility are on the horizon with the goal of becoming a part of the Holiday Inn family of hotels later this year.
