Orlando, Florida (April 16, 2018) – The Holiday Inn® Orlando Airport hotel has recently completed a multimillion-dollar renovation to the property’s 290-guest rooms, conference facilities, lobby and other public areas to reflect the Holiday Inn brand’s innovative H4 design concept.

As part of the design, the Holiday Inn Orlando Airport hotel offers the following features:
