With possible Holiday Inn sale, is Bridgeport’s hotel industry dead or just dormant?

BRIDGEPORT — If and when a pending purchase of the downtown Holiday Inn goes through, Connecticut’s largest city will lose its one major hotel to rental housing.

Local developer John Guedes said this week that he is planning to buy the nearly 40-year-old building and convert most of the 105 rooms there into one- and two-bedroom apartments, though 18 suites will be preserved for extended stay use, along with the conference facilities, restaurant and bar.

So, at least temporarily, that will be the very limited status of the hotel industry in Bridgeport. But for how long?
