The local hotel exchange was completed Thursday.
Chillicothe is now home to a new Holiday Inn Express, which officially opened for business on Thursday.
General Manager Lisa Wrights says the 3-story facility on East Main Street was once a Holiday Inn, then a Baymont hotel, and is how again a Holiday Inn Express.
The building layout has been changed and everything has been updated to showcase a contemporary and modern hotel, which Wright hopes will help boost the local economy in a couple of ways.
Construction which was finished earlier this week, started in July 2011.
