Holiday Inn Express & Suites in Leader Heights is getting a facelift.

The 134-room hotel at 140 Leader Heights Road is in the middle of a $1.75 million remodel, said Dave Hogg, CEO of Springwood Real Estate Services, which manages the partnership that owns the hotel.

Every guest room will be gutted and decorated with new carpeting, fixtures, furniture and more, he said.

A stone finish will be added to the first floor, a terra cotta-colored roof will adorn the building's exterior, and a swimming pool will be installed.

Work is expected to be completed by the end of the year, Hogg said.
