Who we are
Kemmons Wilson created the Holiday Inn brand in 1952 with the singular vision to establish a standard of delivering genuine, consistent customer service. Thirty years later, his commitment to these values led to his founding of Orange Lake Resorts.
Throughout it all, Kemmons understood the power of people to transform an industry and create unique travel experiences. This enabled us to grow from a single timeshare resort in Florida to six member resorts and more than 2,800 team members throughout the eastern United States.
Now, through a strategic alliance with IHG (Intercontinental Hotels Group), owners of the Holiday Inn brand and the largest hospitality company in the world by number of guest rooms, we continue to experience record growth. With that success comes an even brighter future for our organization and those who join our team.
