Our Story

If you have not stayed with us before, it’s nice to finally meet you. Our brand story has started with small beginnings, which has led to Holiday Inn becoming one of the world’s most recognized brands today.

It all started back in 1952 with Memphis businessman, Kemmons Wilson. Frustrated with the lack of family-friendly hotels and being charged extra for kids, he opened his first family-friendly hotel, where kids were not only welcomed but could stay and eat free. This concept of Kids Stay and Eat Free still applies today at Holiday Inn hotels across the globe, including at Holiday Inn Auckland Airport!
