ORLANDO, FL (NOVEMBER 04, 2016) — Orange Lake Resorts, home to the Holiday Inn Club Vacations® brand, and InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG), one of the world’s leading hotel companies, have announced the addition of two Texas resorts and one Missouri resort to the Holiday Inn Club Vacations brand portfolio. The 72-unit Holiday Inn Club Vacations Timber Creek Resort in Desoto, Missouri, joined the Holiday Inn Club® on October 26, while the 130-unit Holiday Inn Club Vacations Holly Lake Resort located in Holly Lake Ranch, Texas, and the 64-unit Holiday Inn Club Vacations Lake o’ the Woods Resort in Flint, Texas, were launched on Nov. 1 and Nov. 2 respectively. These new properties add 266 villas to the rapidly growing vacation ownership brand. The Holiday Inn Club Vacations portfolio now has 25 branded resorts with more than 7,250 villas in 12 states.
The resorts joining the Holiday Inn Club Vacations brand were part of the 2015 purchase of Silverleaf Resorts by Orange Lake Resorts. This included a portfolio of 13 properties, enabling the company to introduce the brand into many new markets.
“I’m excited that our owners and members will have the opportunity to experience these great new family vacation destinations now,” said Don Harrill, CEO of Orange Lake Resorts. “Following the acquisition, we targeted a very aggressive integration schedule so that we could offer even more travel options in our rapidly growing resort network. This means that we have only one of the 13 resorts from the acquisition left to integrate into the Holiday Inn Club Vacations brand.”
“These three new resort brandings expand our footprint in two key vacation destinations,” said Tom Nelson, President and COO of Orange Lake Resorts. “Flint and Holly Lake Ranch, Texas, are situated just a short drive from one of our key markets – Dallas. Desoto, Missouri, is a short drive from downtown St. Louis and provides another Midwest option for our owners and members.”
