ORLANDO, FLA. (May 10, 2016) –– The Holiday Inn Club Vacations® brand, developed and exclusively operated by Orange Lake Holdings through a marketing alliance with InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG), announced today the addition of two Texas resorts to the Holiday Inn Club Vacations brand portfolio. The 421-unit Holiday Inn Club Vacations Hill Country Resort located in Canyon Lake and the 410-unit Holiday Inn Club Vacations Villages Resort in Flint were launched on May 5 and add 831 additional villas to the rapidly growing brand. The Holiday Inn Club Vacations portfolio now has 21 branded resorts with more than 6,700 villas in 12 states. Both resorts include robust sales centers providing additional Holiday Inn Club® sales opportunities in the Texas market.
The resorts joining the Holiday Inn Club Vacations brand were part of the 2015 purchase of Silverleaf Resorts by Orange Lake Holdings. This included a portfolio of 13 properties, enabling the company to introduce the brand into many new markets.
“We’re excited to welcome these two beautiful resorts to the Holiday Inn Club Vacations family,” said Don Harrill, CEO of Orange Lake Resorts. “We now have three outdoor-oriented resorts located in the great state of Texas, including one with an indoor waterpark, to our network. Additionally, we’ve transitioned eight of the 13 Silverleaf Resort properties we purchased last year into the brand while adding fantastic new vacation experiences for our Club members, owners and guests to enjoy.”
“As part of our growth strategy, we continue to aggressively integrate new resort properties into our brand’s system,” said Tom Nelson, President and COO of Orange Lake Resorts. “Our focus now is to bring the remaining five resorts into the Holiday Inn
Club Vacations network before the end of 2016 and open one additional sales center which will extend our Club product offering into these important markets. Club members will soon enjoy these new properties and the multitude of choices and amenities they provide.”
