Waramaug completes update of South Carolina Holiday Inn

Private investment group Waramaug LS Hotels completed the renovation of its Holiday Inn Express & Suites Greenville Airport property in Greer, S.C.

Purchased mid-2015 by Waramaug and built in 1994, the three-story hotel is located on a 2.2-acre site off Interstate 85. The renovation included fully updating the exterior, the lobby and breakfast areas including an all-new breakfast buffet. A sundry shop and business center were added, along with upgrades to the fitness center and indoor pool. The renovation was completed according to IHG’s new Formula Blue design standard. Perfect for business travelers and families alike, the contemporary property is a short distance from Greenville-Spartanburg International Airport as well as the local Haywood Mall and Paris Mountain State Park. Pets are also welcome. 

“Our vision for the property has come to life and we look forward to welcoming our guests to our new public space areas when they stay with us,” said Jay Litt, EVP, Waramaug Hospitality Asset Management. “The property appeals to all types of guests whether they are here for work, passing through on I-85, or just to have a vacation. It’s ideally located close to major employers, the airport, retail shops, and the Paris Mountain State Park for those who want to get out and explore some of the local nature trails.”
