FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT)- The Wyndham Garden Hotel is back in business. The fully-remolded hotel celebrated its grand reopening Thursday morning.

"We upgraded the hotel, it's modern, it's the Wyndam Garden prototype. Everything is brand new and we're finally here, we're very happy," said Namou Hotel Group Regional Manager Kalvin Shunia.

The hotel is completely renovated 3 years after a fire destroyed a large portion of the hotel in November 2015. The renovations cost $6 million, and Shunia says the upgrades really set the hotel apart.

"We have three large meeting rooms, we have a restroom and bar on sight, a pool, beautiful courtyard, rooms and suites," said Shunia.

There are currently 30 employees at the Challenger Parkway location, but Shunia says there could be more employment opportunities at three of the other hotels in Fort Wayne owned by Namou Hotel Group.

"We'd love to have qualified, good employees working at our hotels. "

The hotel has had a few guests since April while renovations were in progress, but now, anyone can make a reservation.

"We are taking reservations, accepting guests and so far the first couple months have been very great," said Shunia.

The hotel is already fully booked for the weekend.
