AmericInn buys Fishers hotel, enters local market

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

Minneapolis-based hotel chain AmericInn has purchased a Holiday Inn off Interstate 69 in Fishers, giving the company its first Indiana location.

The 78-room property—to be rebranded AmericInn Hotel & Suites Indianapolis Northeast—will get an “extensive” renovation, the company said. It was built in 1994 and last renovated in 2004. An AmericInn sign went up along the highway this week.

Details of the firm’s investment were not disclosed.

Fishers-based Dora Brothers Hospitality Corp. auctioned off the hotel Aug. 31. Dora decided to sell the property after it could not secure financing to replace an adjacent restaurant. Holiday Inn hotels must offer food service.

The hotel at 9780 North by Northeast Boulevard, just north of 96th Street, sits next door to a Holiday Inn Express and across the street from a Hotel Indigo and Hilton Garden Inn, all owned by Dora. The restaurant site, which has a separate owner, was not part of the auction but is for sale.

The acquisition “supports our national growth strategy of adding premier properties in key markets," Paul Kirwin, CEO of AmericInn parent Northcott Hospitality said in a prepared statement. The property will be managed by Three Rivers Hospitality LLC, another Northcott unit.

AmericInn said it has added five development offices around the country and is pursuing new franchise opportunities in several locations. The chain has more than 250 mid-scale hotels open or under development in 22 states.


  • MDB you are wrong
    They are actually very successful. The name is catchy and easy to remember. Hotel rooms are usually under $100 a night and come with a continental breakfast. I have been staying at Americinn for about 20 years and have never had a problem.
  • Amerik-who?
    What a bad, bad name. Hope they can succeed with that handicap.

  1. Those of you yelling to deport them all should at least understand that the law allows minors (if not from a bordering country) to argue for asylum. If you don't like the law, you can petition Congress to change it. But you can't blindly scream that they all need to be deported now, unless you want your government to just decide which laws to follow and which to ignore.

  2. 52,000 children in a country with a population of nearly 300 million is decimal dust or a nano-amount of people that can be easily absorbed. In addition, the flow of children from central American countries is decreasing. BL - the country can easily absorb these children while at the same time trying to discourage more children from coming. There is tension between economic concerns and the values of Judeo-Christian believers. But, I cannot see how the economic argument can stand up against the values of the believers, which most people in this country espouse (but perhaps don't practice). The Governor, who is an alleged religious man and a family man, seems to favor the economic argument; I do not see how his position is tenable under the circumstances. Yes, this is a complicated situation made worse by politics but....these are helpless children without parents and many want to simply "ship" them back to who knows where. Where are our Hoosier hearts? I thought the term Hoosier was synonymous with hospitable.

  3. Illegal aliens. Not undocumented workers (too young anyway). I note that this article never uses the word illegal and calls them immigrants. Being married to a naturalized citizen, these people are criminals and need to be deported as soon as humanly possible. The border needs to be closed NOW.

  4. Send them back NOW.

  5. deport now
