Did you know Holiday Inn was the first hotel brand to :
- Offer ‘Kids Stay Free’
- Offer a pool, restaurant, lounge and free ice.
The Holiday Inn brand family, the world’s largest mid scale hotel brand, is globally celebrating 60 years of innovative firsts by launching an extensive campaign to mark the brand’s anniversary.
The first part of this campaign is called “Celebrating Firsts". Holiday Inn has celebrated many firsts throughout the years. From the first hotel to let Kids Stay and Eat Free, to their $1 billion dollar global refresh. Like Holiday Inn, the guests have celebrated many firsts over the years, but most importantly they’ll never forget them – which is why Holiday Inn is inviting guests to share their memorable firsts with them.
Celebrate Your Firsts:
- Remember your first car and how cool it felt to be on the road? What about your first day you sent your little one off to school? Our lives are filled with first memories and Holiday Inn is asking you to help them celebrate their 60 years of firsts by sharing yours through a story, photo, or video of a memorable “firsts”
- Entrants have the chance to win one of 60 free room nights that are being given away every day in the month of August to any Holiday Inn hotel in the world

The second part of Holiday Inn’s 60th anniversary campaign is called “Then & Now”. Holiday Inn is inviting guests from around the world to recreate and share their “Then & Now” photos – where old photographs are recreated in present day, capturing every detail as precisely as possible. “Then & Now” is based on a popular internet meme where old photographs are recreated in present day, capturing every detail as precisely as possible.
Then & Now:
- Looking back at old photos, sometimes it is hard to believe how much things can change! Holiday Inn is asking guests to show us how much they have changed by creating a “Then & Now” photo, where old photographs are recreated in present day, capturing every detail as precisely as possible. Check out their Facebook page to see some Holiday Inn transformations as well as entries for inspiration!
- At the end of the campaign, the brand will select a winning entry to win a week-long family vacation to the Holiday Inn hotel of their choice, anywhere in the world!
