It’s a leap of faith when seven weddings are already booked for a new hotel. But Michelle Slattery, sales director for the Hilton Garden Inn Findlay, says it’s just one indication that Findlay is ready for a larger hotel and entertainment venue that carries the Hilton name. The hotel opened in November and already has several bookings into next year. “We’ve been getting a lot of calls since the summer,” she says. “We’ve got several meetings and large community events planned. It’s really exciting for us to be joining the community.” The hotel includes 101 sleeping rooms, 19 of which are suites. The Garden Grille, the onsite restaurant and bar, is open to the public and serves breakfast and dinner as well as room service. Banquet and catering facilities can accommodate small groups and large groups of up to about 300. Other guest amenities include a fitness center, 24-hour business center, guest laundry and a heated indoor pool with a hot tub.
