Magnuson Hotel Fort Wayne North

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.

Formerly a Howard Johnson, the Magnuson Hotel Fort Wayne North will upgrade its market position to attract travelers via an affiliation with Magnuson Worldwide’s international portfolio of more than 1,000 hotels and its modern global distribution platform. The property offers a complimentary continental breakfast, a business center and complimentary internet access. Nearby points of interest include the Civic Theater of Fort Wayne, Concordia Theological Seminary, Dupont Hospital, a number of local colleges and more.
