New Holiday Inn Opens

Representing a new focus for the brand, Yakima’s Holiday Inn opened today, just across the street from the Yakima Convention Center.  It’s the first property in the state of Washington literally built from the ground up with the new Holiday Inn brand standards.

Local tourism leaders applaud the addition. “With the new Holiday Inn, there are now more than 800 sleeping rooms within walking distance of the convention center,” stated John Cooper, President and CEO of the Yakima Valley Visitors and Convention Bureau.  “This gives us a great advantage over many other towns while providing meeting planners more choices in the city center.”

The $12.5 million hotel has 114 sleeping rooms, full service restaurant and bar, meeting space and a variety of amenities.

The hotel will utilize various environmental practices. Housekeepers clean rooms with products with environmental and sustainability standards. Electricity in rooms only operate when guests place their key card into a designated slot and the swimming pool uses a salt saline solution instead of chorine.

To contact the property call (509) 494- 7000. For reservations visit their website.
