holidayinnexlogo-smAlthough Ohio Brew Week is intended to showcase the talents of craft beer brewers, they aren’t the only ones who take the time to shine. Since signing on as sponsor in 2008, those at Holiday Inn Express & Suites have enjoyed the opportunity to watch the program grow over the years, as well as providing a safe, welcoming environment for those travelers from out of town.

The excitement that Ohio Brew Week brings to Athens is infectious, as last year’s event attendance clocked in at about 4,000 participants, with a mix of local and out-of-towners. “My favorite part is just being a part of this community event and being able to meet all the different brewers that come to the area,” Julie Rowan, General Manager of Holiday Inn Express & Suites, Athens, stated.

With all the extra brew enthusiasts in town, those in the lodging business around the Athens area are all vying for the tourists’ attention. That’s why Julie Rowan wants to get the word out that Holiday Inn Express is the best.

“With all the area hotels offering pretty much the same amenities, our staff is by far the best staff you will find in Athens. They will go above and beyond and make everyone that walks through the door feel like they are a part of our family. So that is definitely what sets us apart from everyone else,” she explained.

Also, guests of Holiday Inn Express & Suites can expect top-notch services. “We have very spacious rooms, new healthy options for breakfast, pet friendly, and locally made gifts in our convenience store,” Rowan added.

Holiday Inn Express & Suites, is located at 555 East State Street, Athens, Ohio. Call 1 (877) 410-6667, or visit to make your reservation.

Rowan offered one last parting comment, “Come stay with us and you’ll see why we are the best choice in Athens!”
