The Best Western will be closed until March 31, 2007. I would also like to make a correction to my previous post. The fire occurred on October 31, not November 1.

Just wondering if the Best Western has reopened yet and I also have a new question. Does anyone know what happened to the Holiday Inn at 2864 Pruden Blvd? It is no longer listed on the Intercontinental Hotels website, so I am assuming that it has changed names (or is in the process of doing so). If you know what the hotel is called now, please let me know.
The BW has not reopened and the charred remains are still there - no signs of rebuilding or of tearing down.
I saw the HI just the other day, but I don't recall any different sign. Of course, maybe I wasn't paying any attention either - my point is nothing looked different. I'll check around.
Thanks, the BW website hasn't been updated in quite some time but I imagine that the hotel will be closed for quite a while until the necessary repairs and rebuilding are done in order for it to reopen. The Holiday Inn might have just changed names very recently (within the past week or two).
The Holiday Inn Suffolk "2864 Pruden Blvd" Is Not a Holiday Inn Anymore- It Currently is a Holiday Inn Standard Hotel But the brand name will be changing over There has been talk of renovations and a new brand name maybe Quality Inn. They are still currently accepting In House Reservations. 757-934-2311 fax 757-539-5846
I am still not sure what is going on with the Holiday Inn but I did find out that the Best Western is closed until at least August 31, 2007.
As anticipated, the Holiday Inn is now a Quality Inn.
The Best Western will be closed until December 31, 2007.
The Best Western reopened at the beginning of the month (5/1/08).
