An Alton hotel remains open for business while it goes through a name change. The Atrium Hotel Alton is the former Holiday Inn on the Homer Adams Parkway and recently ended its affiliation with the international hotel chain. The Big Z has learned the Atrium Hotel remains in operation and the changes will not impact any upcoming events or reservations.
An on-air caller to The Big Z this morning questioned whether or not the hotel was still affiliated with the Holiday Inn, and at this time it is not. However, the hotel is reportedly for sale and the possibility exists that it could once again align itself with the national chain. In the meantime, the hotel is accepting reservations for an upcoming national soccer tournament as well as weddings, meetings and parties in the ballroom.
