ORLANDO, FLA. (April 19, 2016) — The Holiday Inn Club Vacations® brand, developed and exclusively operated by Orange Lake Holdings through a marketing alliance with InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG), has announced the addition of three resorts to the Holiday Inn Club Vacations brand portfolio. The 266-unit Holiday Inn Club Vacations Piney Shores Resort property located in Conroe, Texas and the 514-unit Holiday Inn Club Vacations Holiday Hills Resort in Branson, Missouri were branded on April 14, while the 76-unit Holiday Inn Club Vacations Orlando Breeze Resort located in Davenport, Florida joins the portfolio on April 19. Together these new resorts add 856 additional villas to the rapidly growing brand. The Holiday Inn Club Vacations portfolio now has 19 branded resorts with more than 5,900 villas in 12 states.
“This is an exciting time for our owners and members as well as our company,” said Don Harrill, CEO of Orange Lake Resorts. “Not only are we continuing our westward expansion by bringing new outdoor-oriented vacation ownership destinations to our growing resort network, but it also adds another great option in the Orlando area. This adds even more flexibility for vacationing families to enjoy truly memorable getaways together.”
The three resorts joining the Holiday Inn Club Vacations brand were part of Orange Lake Holdings’ 2015 purchase of Silverleaf Resorts. This included a portfolio of 13 properties, enabling the company to introduce the brand into many new markets.
“Our efforts have been centered on continually building more member value and choice,” said Tom Nelson, President and COO of Orange Lake Resorts. “These 13 resorts are proving to provide a great fit to these goals and our growth plans. Since the purchase, we have been agressively integrating the properties into our growing Holiday Inn Club Vacations brand to great success.
We expect to have all of our Silverleaf properties transitioned into the brand by the end of 2016.”
