The downtown hotel, formerly the Centennial Inn, began renovating in 2012 at a cost of $7 million, according to a post on the hotel’s Foursquare page.

“Notice the modern and stylish new renovations at the Holiday Inn Express & Suites Atlanta Downtown,” the hotel posted to the popular social media checkin site mid-2012. “The hotel underwent a $7 million conversion this past year.”

Just this week the hotel submitted a building permit application with the City of Atlanta to finish the renovations at an additional cost of $1.5 million.

“We are renovating to follow the Intercontinental Hotel Group guidelines,” Divya Parvatiyar, the hotel’s General Manager, told What Now Atlanta in an interview Tuesday.

Nate P., a guest of the hotel during its renovations in 2012, posted a picture to the Holiday Inn Foursquare page of exposed guest areas under construction during his stay.

“Second floor, opposite side from breakfast area, leads you to a real scary secret section of the hotel,” Nate posted. “Gutted rooms without doors and stuff.”

Parvatiyar did not say if the second floor would be included in the renovations, but she did confirm that it will cover areas that were not completed with the initial remodel.
