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. OK Larry, let's sign Lance, shore up the PG and let's get to the finals.

  2. A couple of issues need some clarification especially since my name was on the list. I am not sure how this information was obtained and from where. For me, the amount was incorrect to begin with and the money does not come to me personally. I am guessing that the names listed are the Principal Investigators (individual responsible for the conduct of the trail) for the different pharmaceutical trials and not the entity which receives the checks. In my case, I participate in Phase II and Phase III trials which are required for new drug development. Your article should differentiate the amount of money received for consulting, for speaking fees, and for conduct of a clinical trial for new drug development. The lumping of all of these categories may give the reader a false impression of physicians just trying to get rich. The Sunshine Law may help to differentiate these categories in the future. The public should be aware that the Clinical Trial Industry could be a real economic driver for Indiana since these revenues supports jobs and new job creation. Nationally, this account for 10-20 billion which our State is missing out on to a large degree. Yes, new drug and technology development has gotten most of the attention (e.g. CTSI, BioCrossroads, etc.) However, serious money is being left on the table by not participating in the clinical trials to get those new drugs and medical devices on the market!!!! I guess that this is not sexy enough for academia.

  3. The address given for the Goldfish Swim Club is the Ace Hardware, is it closing?

  4. Out of state management and ownership. If Kite controlled it, everything would be leased. Of course, due to the roundabout, there is limited access to the south side of 116th now also. Just have to go down to the light.

  5. Hey smudge, You're opposed to arresting people for minor crimes? Sounds great! We should only focus on murders and such, right? Let's stand around and wait until someone shoots someone before we act. Whatever we do, we should never question anyone, frisk anyone, or arrest anyone unless they are actively engaged in shooting or stabbing. Very sound!
