News

PANAMA CITY, Fla. — The Holiday Inn in Panama City welcomed their first guests on Monday after a quick nine-month turn around after Hurricane Michael.

Built from the ground up, the hotel offers a brand-new infrastructure with a new exterior and interior.

“The whole infrastructure has been brought into the 21st century. They have actually all the way from the studs to the concrete slab,” said General Manager Jennine Brown. 

The hotel currently has one wing open with over 80 rooms for guests. All rooms include state-of-the-art Wi-Fi, Keurig coffee machines, modern decor and new precautions to protect guests from future storms.

“The hotel has been brought up to the 20-20 code. We have impact resistant windows, were in a much better place if the hotel was to experience another hurricane in the future,” said Brown.

“The hotel opening this early after Hurricane Michael is a great resource for the community, for workers coming in, the people who need places to stay. There’s a great need for housing in Bay County right now,” said Brown.

The Holiday Inn is expected to have all of their rooms open by the end of June.
