New Holiday Inn Express and Suites Under Construction in Greenwood

GREENWOOD, S.C. – Construction is under way on an 86-room, four-story Holiday Inn Express & Suites, the latest addition to Paragon Hotel Company’s family of properties that also includes the Fairfield Inn & Suites and the Hampton Inn here. The new hotel is expected to open in the 4th Quarter of 2016.

Matrix Construction in Anderson, S.C., is building the hotel, which will showcase Holiday Inn Express’s new “Formula Blue” design, developed to meet the ever-changing needs of Millennials and other savvy business travelers and guests who want a simple, smart and efficient lodging experience.

The prototype features an open lobby and great room for social and business gatherings, as well as several in-room improvements. The hotel’s amenities will include an outdoor pool, business center, guest laundry, meeting room, and fitness center.

At 300 N. Creek Blvd., the hotel is conveniently located near the Greenwood Mall, Greenwood Country Club and Lander University and an hour’s drive from Greenville, S.C.’s, award-winning downtown and the world-class entertainment offerings at Newberry Opera House.

Holiday Inn Express is a brand of InterContinental Hotels Group, whose 4,900 hotels in nearly 100 countries include InterContinental Hotels & Resorts, Crowne Plaza Hotels & Resorts and the Holiday Inn brands.

“South Carolina’s new boom is providing fantastic opportunities, not just for Paragon Hotel Company, but for an increasing number of travelers, too,” says Mitesh Patel, PHC’s President. “With the new Formula Blue design, we’re able to expand our excellent customer service with a design that’s built expressly for those who want and deserve an upscale experience.”
