FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT) -- The owners of Don Hall's Guesthouse announced today they're ceasing operations at the hotel and conference center.
In a letter posted on Facebook, Timothy Hall and the Hall family wrote that the COVID-19 Coronavirus has had severely impacted their business.
"The best comparison I can come up with is this, it is like trying to stop a freight train going 60 mph in 10 yards. From 60 to 0 in a matter of a few days. Obviously this has been a very difficult decision."
Hall says ever since they first bought the former "Imperial House Hotel" in 1981, they employed some of the best folks in hospitality.
"Having to inform them of this decision is one of the hardest things we have had to do in our 75 years of business."
