Holiday Inn offers today's business and leisure travellers dependability, friendly service and modern attractive facilities at excellent value. You'll find them throughout the world – in small towns and major cities, along quiet roadways and near bustling airports – because full-service Holiday Inn hotels are always conveniently located. Since 1952 Holiday Inn Hotels and Resorts have provided the services business travellers need, while also offering leisure travellers a comfortable, casual atmosphere where they can relax and enjoy amenities such as restaurants, room service, swimming pools, fitness centres and comfortable lounges.
In September 2008, IHG announced the creation of a new timeshare brand, Holiday Inn Club Vacations, a strategic alliance with The Family of Orange Lake Resorts.
Holiday Inn Club Vacations officially launched in December 2008 with the conversion of Orange Lake’s flagship 2,500 villa property in Orlando, Florida. The conversion of the remaining Orange Lake resorts including Ascutney, Vermont (60 villas), Lake Geneva, Wisconsin (68 villas) and Panama City, Florida (18 villas) has now been completed.
