What once was the Holiday Inn at 620 Delaware Avenue is now the Residence Inn by Marriott, complete with a Starbucks.
Anybody who drove or walked by the old Holiday Inn will recall what an eyesore it was. There were no windows facing the street and the building was a tall, bland, boxy structure. The folks at Marriott came in and really turned the place around.
The façade received the greatest upgrade, turning the building from something that neighbors complained about and was the butt of jokes, to a structure that may become a source of pride and progress. The rooms, the lobby, and the facilities are all top notch and will help bring welcoming accommodations to this section of Delaware Avenue.
A very welcome change.
