Holiday Inn corporate has offered to pay the other half of the Kellerman’s hotel bill.

Update (9 a.m.): I’ve clarified this post to reflect that Holiday Inn offered a 50 percent discount on the Kellerman’s current reservation, not a future room. Their initial email to me seemed to indicate that they were being offered a discount for a new reservation, but a follow-up note established that the hotel had offered to refund part of their current bill.
Update (12/5): From Jeri Kellerman:
Just thought I’d let you know that we have received a check from Holiday Inn corporate office, so they have finally paid for our entire room the night of the snow storm.
This however, does not mean we have goodwill towards them. Even if they had offered 50% off the room and 50% for a “future” stay we would have been pleased. It would have cost them nothing if we never went back, but the “good will” that would have been extended would have made a positive impression.
