SALISBURY — Hotel Salisbury has closed.
The former Holiday Inn at 530 Jake Alexander Blvd. S. — the largest hotel in Rowan County with 181 rooms — closed Sunday, according to owners the Wallace family. Suzanne Wallace Casey, president of Hotel Group of Salisbury, said the family is in the process of selling the property but could not give details about the buyer.
The future owner is not a hotel, and Hotel Salisbury employees will not continue to work at the facility. Casey said her family is trying to help employees find other jobs.
She said the plan to repurpose the building will be “one of the most positive events that has ever happened in Salisbury and will be a tremendous influence in Salisbury for many years to come.”
