Our Hotel

When guests take in the view east of our hotel, just past I-75, they'll see rustic fields and warm countryside; to the west, the burgeoning city of Lima, Ohio. Here at Holiday Inn and Suites Lima, we take pride in maintaining that balance between 'Downtown' and 'Down-home'. Welcome to the Holiday Inn and Suites, Lima, Ohio's newest full service hotel. Our property proudly boasts of The Lounge, our restaurant and full bar, which provides room service to all 116 beautifully appointed, newly renovated rooms and suites. After dinner, guests can relax in our indoor heated pool and hot tub or burn off those calories in a fully equipped workout room. With 2,400 square feet of versatile meeting space we're here to help anyone celebrate wedding vows or reminisce over drinks with former classmates during a reunion. Within minutes of industry centerpieces such as Ford Engine Plant, Procter & Gamble, the Husky Refinery, Lima Memorial Hospital, Mercy Health St. Rita’s Medical Center, Dana Incorporated, and the Orthopaedic Institute of Ohio, a business trip will be streamlined and efficient. If travelers are in town seeking that deal-sealing handshake from a potential client or partner, the local dining scene is the way to impress. Whether it’s steaks at Old City Prime, a gourmet burger and designer cocktail at The Met, hibachi and a Spicy Girl sushi roll at Yamato, or a bottle of wine at Vino Bellissimo (where they also have 36 craft beers on tap!), the only way someone won’t impress is if they don’t try.
