Magnuson Hotels announced the rebranding of the Magnuson Hotel Fort Wayne North. The property is located near the Allen County War Memorial Coliseum, providing travelers with access to a number of concerts and events. The property also provides access to numerous shopping and dining options, with both the Northcrest Shopping Center and Glenbrook Square Shopping Mall a short walk away from the hotel. In addition, families and students visiting Indiana University Purdue and Fort Wayne Zoo are less than two miles from the hotel.
