FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) Don Hall’s Guesthouse Hotel & Conference Center on Washington Center Rd. announces on Facebook it will permanently close.
“The Guesthouse Hotel is closed for business. We will still cater events at other locations,” owner Tim Hall confirmed to WANE 15.
“As you can imagine, being in the travel, catering, banquet and live music industries, the current state of affairs has severely impacted our business,” reads the Facebook post.
Hall said he couldn’t afford to run it anymore along with all the many other area businesses he manages.
“We do have some successful places, some good restaurants that are busy,” he said. “We don’t want to jeopardize their existence and try to ride this thing out with the guesthouse, because we really don’t know how long this is going to last. As a Restaurant group, we kind of felt we had to do it to position ourselves for the future.”
They acquired the “Imperial House Hotel” in 1981.
